Clothes shopping can be an overwhelming experience. When curating a small wardrobe, here’s how to know what to keep and what to leave on the rack.
Are you a stay at home (or work at home) mom that wants so desperately to escape the sweat pants? You want a small wardrobe, but you have no clue how to put enough casual outfits together. Here’s help.
When you have a small wardrobe, having a variety of clothes is key! These small wardrobe shopping tips will help you stay focused.
I’m not going to lie. Some of them take a lot of willpower to implement. But not only will the save money in the long run… you’ll always have something to wear.
When you have kids and are a professional, you need a winter small wardrobe that does double duty.
I used to get really stressed out at the thought of everything I had to buy to straddle these two lives. I want to look professional in my work, but I also don’t want to look like a bum on the weekends.
What to do?
You make sure you have these in your closet.
You got invited to a holiday party where you don’t know a soul. You:
a) politely decline the invitation
b) accept, but then fake a stomach flu the day of the party, or
c) accept and go.
(Pssst… choose C, choose C)
Holiday parties used to drive the sharp knife of fear through my chest. I don’t have party clothes! What am I going to wear?
It’s easy to get lost in motherhood.
There are endless books to read, gadgets to buy, places to go and activities to do. So much that you forget what you read, bought, visited and did before that tiny, beautiful creature entered your life. You go from being Kate or Lindsay to being “Piper’s mommy” or “Brady’s mom.”
And, even though parenthood changes you in some of the most amazing ways, the you that existed before is still there. You still have desires, needs, dreams and preferences. You still need certain things to be the best version of yourself and yes, those things have absolutely nothing to do with your children.
If you don’t make your own health, happiness, and wellbeing a priority, then it’s pretty hard to be the mom I know you want to be.
So, let’s all agree that the absolute best thing we can do for our children and families is to fill our own tank!
Shopping. Shouldn’t there be rules for buying clothes?
Because here’s the thing about shopping for clothes, it can really go up or down. Am I happy with the weight I’m at? Then shopping is a knockout-good time. Don’t know what I’m looking for? Well, then we get into the gray territory.
When I don’t know what I want, I tend to buy anything. I’ll fall for all the latest trends, regardless if I’m really in love with them or if they even fit in my current wardrobe. Then, a week later, I’ll have major shopping regret when I find that not only does the garment not really fit me but it doesn’t go with anything else in my closet.
So, how can you tell if you should actually buy the clothes you like?
You’ve heard from countless style mavens, “make sure you wear a bra that fits,” but how exactly are you supposed to tell if you are wearing the right bra?
All you know is you have underwear – maybe its a little loose or possibly digging into your side. But, a bra is a bra, right? If the fit is a little off, no big deal.
Actually, you would be surprised. A proper fitting bra can make your entire world sing. It can change the shape of your body in your tops. It can solve world hunger.
No, it can’t do that. But, you get where I’m going here.
How can we check if we are wearing the correct bra?
How do you words and thoughts shape you?
You hear all the time about the power of positive thinking. What happens when all you can think of is failure?
For me, it caused my entire body to crash down. That’s why you and I both need the reminder
