After having Everett, I had mom-brain so bad that I couldn’t remember anything. I was starting a new job and felt every morning was a disaster getting dressed. Not only did I have to be creative about what I wore (because I worked with the worlds most creative group of women) but I also just didn’t want to have to think about it. I spent so much time in the morning trying to create outfits, I knew there had to be another way. Here’s what I did:
- Check the weather forecast for the week to plan accordingly (the weather in Denver is CrAzY and so unpredictable!)
- Every Sunday, pick out 6 complete outfits for that week. Everything down to the shoes, socks and jewelry. If there might be snow in the forecast, know which coat, hat, gloves, boots, etc, you are going to wear with each outfit.
- Every morning, I get completely dressed and before I go downstairs, I take a photo of myself in front of a full-length mirror. I will take 2-3 photos, at least one without winter accessories and coat and then one with them so you can see both. This helps so much for on Sundays when I’m choosing outfits for the week, I can look back and remember which ones I loved and which were just “ok”, which ones I felt comfortable in and which ones made me feel on top of the world.
(These photos are from the last month. If I’m missing shoes in the photos, thats because I was planning to wear snow boots that were too dirty to bring upstairs)
- For inspiration, I use my seasonal style boards on Pinterest and follow a few bloggers (like Liz Adams at Sequins & Stripes and Rach Parcell at Pink Peonies) on the Bloglovin’ App.
- If you have a little extra time on your hands, download the Stylebook App on your iPad and its like having a “Clueless”-style closet.
