So, today I wanted to write all about feeling like you have absolutely NOTHING to wear even when your closet looks like a tornado flew through it. Trust me, we've all been in that situation where getting dressed is a complete drag and we end up staying home because nothing is working out. Getting dressed should be FUN! So, I wanted to share some tips and tricks with you to make your experience getting dressed a lot smoother.
Tip #1: Clean out your closet!
Ok, so this one is definitely way easier said than done, but it is the most essential step! It's so easy for your closet to become cluttered (and we'll talk more about this in the next step), so it is super important that you actually like the clothes you have. Take a day to go through all of your clothing and decide whether or not you actually want to keep each piece. Think about what you could wear it with, if you like the way that it fits, and most importantly if you've actually worn it in the last couple of weeks. If not, THROW IT OUT!! I am such a purger, so this isn't hard for me to do at all, but I know there are lots of you out there that develop a sentimental relationship with your clothes. Get rid of it, girl. It's just taking up space that could be used for something you actually will wear. A way that I like to get rid of some of the clothing I no longer wear, is by selling it in the Mericari app. This has been the easiest for me to use, and you can use the code "EWJZNR" to receive $10 off your first purchase when you sign up. It's totally free, and a great way to make some extra cash. Check out my closet here: https://www.mercari.com/u/947653413/.
Tip #2: Go Shopping!
This seems like a weird one, right? Like ok, I just cleaned my closet and now you're telling me to fill it back up? Yup. That's exactly what I do. Only this time, you've gotta buy the right stuff. Make a list of essentials that you feel your wardrobe is missing, and STICK TO IT. Do not fall into the temptation of looking through clearance sections and new arrivals in stores, because that is how you'll end right back at square one. Look for those true basics like a white tee, a denim jacket, a distressed pair of jeans, and a black tank top. These are pieces that you will continuously be able to wear and make tons of outfits with. Rather than continuously buying super trendy items, stick to your basics. Trust me, this will make getting ready so much easier.
Tip #3: Stick to neutrals!
I know it may seem boring to only wear neutrals, but this is one of the tips that has really been a game-changer for me. It's so much easier to style nudes and blacks rather than hot pinks and purples. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for following trends and having some fun colors in the closet. Just make sure to keep it to a minimum, and NEVER splurge on trendy items. Having neutral tones and solid colors in the closet really help with creating different outfits, and envisioning different ways to wear one piece in several ways.
Tip #4: Love the body you're in!
So, I wasn't going to include this one, but I want to keep it 100% real with y'all. You can have all the cutest clothes in the world, but if you're not confident in your own skin, then none of those clothes matter. It's SO easy to get caught up in the idea of having that big butt and small waist body, but guess what? God made us all different and beautiful in our OWN way. Don't let the Kardashians of the world fool ya... Takes lots of money and surgery to look like that, girl. Be proud to be who you are! With that being said, if you're not feeling confident with yourself do something to change it! Beating yourself up about what you look like isn't going to do anything but damage, so if you really want to see a change, make the change! If you feel good inside, you'll feel even better on the outside.
As always, thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts! It means so much! I hope that you enjoyed reading this as much as I enjoyed writing it. Let me know what your tips are for having an easier time getting ready, and what you'd like to read about next!
