How To Make Your Weekday Dressing Quicker And Easier

10 Jun



Plan on the weekend.

If I have an upcoming big week, I’ll look at my diary to see what I’m doing and put some outfits together. (Usually Sunday afternoon.)

Sometimes it’s just a quick 15 or 20 minutes, where I throw a few combinations together on the bed. And other times, like today, I might play around in my wardrobe for a while, and see what I can come up with.

Along the way, I’ll take photos which I’ll save on my phone.

Apart from saving you time and energy, it’ll encourage you to wear more of your clothes and make the most of your wardrobe.

If you feel you could use some help planning outfits, I offer wardrobe styling sessions (both in person and via FaceTime)

What I Think About Before I Buy Something New

28 Feb

I’ve previously teamed this skirt with Birkenstocks and a t-shirt, I’ll be trying it with a leather jacket and boots (maybe) when it cools, and this week I wore it to a funeral with a blazer – similar to this.

I always think about all the ways I can wear something before I decide to buy it. (And it doesn’t matter how much it costs.) If I can only come up with one, I’ll leave it.

Remember, you can still have lots of outfits without having lots of stuff.

BTW – my skirt’s newish from the Ines de la Fressange range at Uniqlo. I got it on sale for less than $50 – and I love it!

Update your style

Redefining your style often will help to keep your wardrobe up with you.

I think about mine at least once a year – usually at the start – before I have a cull, and more importantly, buy anything new. Some years, not much changes at all – I’m happy with where my style is at. Other years, I know something’s shifted (career, lifestyle, me?) and I want to try new things.

I’ve always loved 70s style and felt inspired by it, but recently I’ve felt more and more drawn to it. Much of the images I’ve saved for ideas for my style are from the seventies. So I’ve decided to embrace and explore that a bit more. Just a bit…not like I’m going to a fancy dress party as Cher.

Your personal style should evolve as you do. The worst thing you can do is wear clothes that don’t express who you are.

For example, you’re fun and playful and love color but mostly wear black and white.

What I’m wearing here (above) are a couple of new pieces I bought to scratch my 70’s itch.

These pics below are a few images I’ve saved on Pinterest over the years for inspiration.
