Shop…YOUR CLOSET

January. THAT time of year when you make resolutions and vow to up the ante on your life.

First on the list is usually your closet because let’s face it nothing can elevate your mood faster  than putting something on that makes you feel beautiful and confident. (At least that’s what your clothing is supposed to do). Yet, we often walk into our jammed packet closets and exclaim “I have nothing to wear! “

Now before you hit the mall looking for the next item to add to your already packed wardrobe or start shopping online at warp speed might I suggest  that you “shop your closet.” Yep, you heard me. Go into your closet and take a few of your absolute favorite pieces and pair them with items that you haven’t before. For example:

You have the perfect blazer that makes you feel fabuuulous. It’s tailored to perfection and you always wear it with the same pair of jeans,so why not try it

  • with another pair of jeans in a different color or shape,
  • or dress it up with a basic pair of black pants and a really dressy blouse.
  • mix it with a sweater instead of a tee or maybe
  • add some amazing statement jewelry

The thought of using what you already have isn’t revolutionary but we all get stuck in this mindset of wearing the same items over and over again and NOW is the perfect time to shake things up a bit and use what you already have …in a new and different way. With all these options you may find yourself walking into your closet and thinking…A closet full of clothes and I have so so much to wear.” Revolutionary.

Here are a few examples that I hope will get you running into your closet and doing a little remix of your own.
