What to Wear Today (2023 edition)

Updated: Jul 10, 2023

Your alarm goes off, you drag yourself out of bed (after hitting snooze 3 times). After mustering all your energy to brush your teeth and hop in the shower, you open your closet and realize…you have nothing to wear. We’ve all said or thought this at some point but we know it’s furthest from the truth.

Regardless of how disorganized your closet may be, there is always an appropriate outfit you can put together, depending on where you’re headed. When we say ‘I have nothing t wear,’ we typically mean, ‘I’m not in the headspace to put together a cute outfit right now so I’m unsure of what to wear.’ There, I fixed it for you.


As someone with too many clothes to fit into my closet, I can forget about some clothing items for a while. This makes me think my wardrobe is lacking when in fact is my organization of clothes that needs improvement. Being able to see all or most of your clothing in one place makes it easier to put together a stylish look. That’s why I encourage you to lay out the items in your closet according to season.

In today’s blog post, I would be helping you decide on what outfit to wear today. I would be sharing some great outfit ideas for different occasions to serve as a guide. If you’re drawing a blank when it comes to putting together a chic look on any given day, you can refer to this post for some outfit inspiration. If you lack fashion inspiration today, let me help you.
