TITLE EDITED FOR MARYK! Because my wardrobe does not need sh*t...
How do you shift your attitude along with it? As Zap pointed out on my frump thread, perhaps my frump worries are because I want to be authentically myself 100% of the time, and yet I can't dress that way for work any more. I have more leeway than I thought, but I have to look professional enough, and I'm also craving comfort in a new way - like the kind of comfort you'd want on an all day flight.
This shift certainly could go the other way for some - for instance, if you leave a highly professional environment for retirement or to be a SAHM.
The question is, how do you make that mental adjustment? From feedback here, my "frump" perceptions are in my head, so it's my brain that needs a closet purge!
