Whether you plan your outfits for the week or you just decide in the morning, make sure to iron before your week starts. This will save you time and energy, and make sure you can wear that cute dress or nice shirt when you want to, rather than having to iron before work or push the outfit back for another day.
We all know kids grow like weeds, so have your kids try on clothes to make sure their pants still fit and those dresses aren’t way too short for school.
Try on your summer clothes, and go through everything and donate or try to resell anything that no longer fits your style.
If you’re trying to update your look, switch out your purse. It’s a cost-effective way to get a whole new look with your outfits each day.
You need to periodically clean out your closet before you have so much stuff in there that your closet racks literally collapse on you. If I sound like I’m speaking from experience, it’s because I am.
When it comes to fashion, I love the versatility of it. Sometimes, high fashion is what you go with, at other times, athleisure is the best option. And all of it is fashion. We are wrapping up my favorite season, which means for many, you are getting the last bit of cold and have some warmer weather heading your way. In my case, the majority of the cold weather has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that I’ve hung up my scarf yet.
I adore scarves, I think they can add a lot to an outfit, and it makes me think of fall and winter, my two favorite seasons. But more than that, I love the versatility of scarves. A scarf really can change everything when it comes to your outfit. This is one of the best ways to dress up what could otherwise be a bit of a boring outfit, by adding a pop of color or a fun pattern to it. Not only that, but scarves come in a variety of styles. You have your thick, heavy winter ones that are perfect for those freezing days out in the snow, and then you have lighter, thinner ones that are perfect for a nice spring day. Personally, I love them both, but realistically, I get more use out of one of the lighter ones. I can pair it with a short sleeve dress, and I’m not sweating by noon, but my dress now has a bit more to it than just the simple dress it was. Same thing with a sweater and a pair of jeans, it can really dress it up and take your outfit up a level.
This one shown above is one of my favorites, and was a Christmas gift. It’s more lightweight, but it was perfect for added warmth on this cold day, and I can’t wait to pair it with a dress for a fashionable work outfit.
Not only that, but these scarves can be styled in a variety of ways. I went with a simple wrap around style, but they can be knotted, they can be twisted, and each version looks awesome.
I sometimes use retail therapy as a stress relief for myself, and while it’s always fun, the stress I get from looking at my bank account after isn’t. So, next time you’re needing some retail therapy, ask yourself, need or want? Another great way to look at it is, do I love this or just like it? If you can’t imagine leaving without it, it’s fine, but if it just caught your eye and then you can walk away and forget about it, you’re probably better not spending your money.
So many places have different options for you to save, so find a way to save where you can. If you’re shopping at a grocery store, check for coupons or even an app that offers rewards. If you love coffee, get a Starbucks card and account and start earning free drinks. Most stores offer rewards too, so sign up for the programs, they’re all usually free!
Deciding what to wear each day can be really difficult, and time-consuming, so save yourself some time in the morning, and plan your outfit for the next day. You’ll be able to get all the accessories together, without feeling rushed or being late to work.
