Hey there!! I hope everyone's week is off to a great start. Wanted to share 4 keys to getting dressed quickly with you today. I shared this blog post on The Cold Coffee Blog a couple of weeks ago but I felt like you might want to read it too! I honestly find these to be so helpful. I would love to know if you do too, so please, let me know 😘.
Key 1: PICK YOUR CLOTHES OUT AHEAD OF TIME! I think this is crucial to you getting ready in a hurry! Before the start of your week, look over your calendar and see what you have planned. I usually pick five looks. Three that are for runnning errands, play dates, delivering to clients, etc. One that is little more fun for a dinner out with my family or friends. And one for church on Sunday! I can fill in the gaps if I need to for the additional two days of the week, but generally I end up wearing work out clothes those days 😁
Now, here is the other important part of this key.
Wear. The. Outfit.
There is no time for you to waste in front of the mirror picking yourself apart, you have things to do 😜 Put the outfit on, and go! At the end of the day reflect on how you felt in it. Did you feel comfortable, did you receive any compliments, did you like the style/fit, or did you just not love it? If the forth option is your answer, then toss it into a designated donate/sell pile and get rid of the pieces that don't make you feel very good. This will help you weed out the pieces in your closet that are just taking up space, as well as help set up your wardrobe to be only the things that you feel your best in. This whole process will also give you have a better understanding of exactly what you NEED when you are shopping and in turn save you money 🙌🏻
Key 2: WEAR YOUR CLOTHES, Don't SAVE them! 😂 So many people will buy things they love yet stick them in the back of their closet to wait for the "perfect" occasion!! Don't do that 😜 Wear and enjoy the clothes that make you feel good because the "perfect" occasion will rarely arise, ( for a busy mom anyway).
Key 3: BUY QUALITY CLOTHING
I know, I know! Those budgets mess up everything 😜😂 It is hard to want to buy what is cute and in style, and not spend a fortune.
Here are my suggestions. Build your wardrobe around staple pieces! Invest your money in those things that will last for years. For "trendier" looks, don't spend too much as they wont last forever. Touch and feel the fabrics on pieces that you are interested in. If they are even the slightest bit flimsy do not buy them!! You can bet that after one wash they will never look the same and will be "one time wears" that only drain your pockets. Be wise about this and with purchasing styles that you know are the most flattering for you! And hey, if you struggle with this and really don't know what is the most flattering for your body type, please email me and I will gladly help you learn what you need to be looking for!
Key 4: Buy pieces that can be mixed and matched to make several outfits! Honestly Less is more in a closet and by purchasing enterchangable items you can give yourself several options. So many of my clients can only seeing ONE "outfit" with something they have purchased. When I split it up and show them all their options it's like I have performed some sort of magic trick 🎩🐇 TADAAAAHHH 💁🏼
Getting dressed should be easy and fun. If it isn't, please try applying theses keys above to help you! Below are just a few pictures of easy every day looks I throw on.
So whether your a busy Mom or just BUSY, you can get dressed quickly, look great, as well as eliminate those pieces just wasting space in your closet all at the same time! 🙌🏻
Have a great day today! XOXO
