Are you ready to get back to having a POLISHED functional wardrobe? I know I sure am! Style should be fun and easy, and right now my wardrobe is giving me a major headache as I transition for the Fall/Winter 2021 season. (ughhh)
One thing that I’ve realized more than ever in the past few months is the importance of checking in with yourself. While I am talking about on every level… My expertise is in building wardrobes. So, I’m going to keep this blog post to exactly that!
These days, I’m working with my clients exclusively from home. Yes it’s comfortable, but the truth is I miss my office so much! I’m sure so many can relate, but working from home requires me to be 7 people. Being Zoom ready in minutes on top of functioning as a cook and my kids uber driver are just a few of the duties I’ve had to balance lately. Don’t even get me started on those either… just pray for me please. Now that the kids are back in school, life has become a little more manageable. (LOL)!
Of course, as I’m updating my wardrobe to my current lifestyle to make sure it’s functioning for my needs, there are a few things I need to be clear about and wanted to make sure you knew too!
Let me let you in on a little secret…
Did you know the region you live in also directly impacts your wardrobe needs and fashion taste? The way I style my clients in Washington DC is totally different from how I style my clients in San Francisco or Atlanta. Many women in DC are working in offices that have Traditional Dress Codes, whereas the dress codes in San Francisco tend to be more relaxed. So if you’re spending more time in your own neighborhood, than in the city your office is based in, take note. My office is in formal Washington DC, but I live in relaxed southern Maryland.
Now, is your closet full of clothes, but everyday you feel like you don’t have anything to wear? If so, your wardrobe is out of wack and needs to be balanced! It’s totally annoying, I know! This just means that something in your life has changed and you need to reconnect your wardrobe with your current lifestyle. You can download the POLISHED WARDROBE/LIFESTYLE BALANCE worksheet (HERE).
The three major factors that influence the needs of any woman’s functional wardrobe are the following:
Style Personality | Defines how you naturally feel about style (CLICK)
Location | Appropriately style outfits based on where you are going
Lifestyle | How are you functioning over the next 30 days? CLICK to identify your needs
Now, take a seat and think about the changes that you have had in your lifestyle over the last few months. After evaluation, can you see how those changes have impacted your wardrobe needs?
