Do you look at that stunning dress online and say, “Ohhhh, I wish, but when will I ever wear it?”
So often our lifestyle and our style ideals are not connected. Many of my clients are “momtrepreneurs”… yup, hard working women who run virtual empires from their homes and take care of the kiddos.
The key to sustainable style is knowing your lifestyle. Sometimes we may need to accept where we are or adjust based on where our desires are guiding us.
Getting dressed is about stepping into your body, fulfilling its needs, meeting your life right where it is, and making tiny adjustments to raise the bar of your personal expression.
If you are a yoga-pant-wearing mama with little ones at home...that’s cool. Be there. Soak up the joy and challenges of motherhood. Allow yourself the comfort and flexibility of more elasticated fits. Your body may be shifting post-pregnancy. Check out how it feels on the inside, notice where your energy is, ask your body what it needs to thrive. If you need an upgrade, try a simple piece of jewelry. Know if you like silver or gold. (Everyone has a preference. I like a mix, but I stick to gold more consistently.) You can also try on a great pair of stretchy jeans like these Athleta ones.
If you are working from home and are doing the solo journey, it’s so important to have a reality check. It’s really easy to show up in sweats and a tee for client calls or writing. But let me challenge you to put on your best jeans or even a pair of slacks, maybe even a pencil skirt. Throw on a silky button-down and be the boss lady you are.
Activating the body with your biz casual professional wardrobe will tap into a level of performance that is well presented. If you’re looking for a professional upgrade, test-run a velvet blazer or a statement necklace. (Make sure there is enough space on your chest to see that beauty you adorn.)
Heading to the office, let’s make an impact. The daily workflow of life and corporate world balance can be tenuous. Making your style efficient and impactful is the key to the game here. If you are in the corporate business suit world (man’s game), play the part. Rock the suit and femme it up with a good silk shirt that has a high statement color or tie, like this one.
For those beauties who walk the line of biz pro and the world of style, I know it can feel boundaryless and wide open, so K.I.S.S. Yup, Keep It Simple Sexy. Know your favorite patterns and have the basics in hand. If you need them, you can grab the epic wardrobe list right here.
If you don’t know it by now, I’m an idealist. I want the best for all. I want you to feel a sense of freedom and expression. I want you to prosper and thrive. I want you to feel a deep sense of beauty and connection to your body so that the world can see, hear, and feel you. I want you to step into your powerhouse confident body and rock that daily look.
So I want you to have both: the FASHIONABLE and the FUNCTIONAL.
No more blisters from walking too far in heels. No more sad faces in the mirror while breastfeeding and trying to squeeze back into your old jeans. No more lackluster suits that control your spirit. No more identity crisis when picking floral or geometric patterns.
The first step in the journey to know if you need or even want to be fashionable is to know your lifestyle. It dictates so many ways you can adorn your body, it filters what needs to be in your closet, and what might need to be let go from a past life. Let the function of your life stride forward and then ask your body what it needs to be as effective and powerful as possible.
