Some days even if you wake up on time you just don't feel like going to work or putting in much effort into your appearance. While I always advocate at least showering (for the sake of everyone who has to work with you) I know how it feels to not be motivated for another grueling day at the office. I personally try to plan my outfits for the week every Sunday night by looking at the weather forecast for the week and taking into consideration what important meetings I may have that week (including events I have to attend after work). I iron anything that needs it and hang all the outfits I have selected for the week in a specific spot. I also usually try to take the time to select accessories for each outfit as well. This may seem like a daunting task, since just selecting what you are going to wear for one day can be difficult enough, let alone five days. But, I have found that as time goes on it is much easier, makes my morning routine go faster, and helps me in case I either wake up late or feel unmotivated.
