Kick the Winter Blues to the Curb!
We are well into January. The holidays are over. New Year’s celebrations are over….and they even say that if you did make a resolution for 2016….you are probably over it by now!
Resolutions, they say, are yesterdays news! Thank Heavens! The resolution replacement is Choose a Theme for 2016. Pick ONE word that will become your theme for 2016. My theme….? Doable! I am famous for getting up in the morning and having a list of 47 things to do. Then, when nighttime comes, I am beating my self up for not getting through the list. I want to think of things, probably small changes, of things that I can actually DO! I think most of us can actually do these things that I am going to try hard to accomplish.
For example, Plan your looks. Choose a few looks that are new to you. Looks that you are willing to try. You might even find some of the pieces to your new look right under your nose, in your closet! Just use it a little differently. Organize your closet! Get rid of the things that clutter it up. But be sure to keep the things you Love…and keep them front and center. Try some new underwear. It’s a really good rule of thumb….get fresh new undergarments at the beginning of the season! When you get your new clothes. Your clothes will fit and look much better on you.
Have fun with fashion! Look for inspiration from your fashionable friends, a trusted mentor, a fashion consultant…and especially your favorite magazines. Be bold…..just bold enough to consider something a little bit different from the same old same old.
Simplify your go to accessories to make room for some fresh new looks. Feature them in easy to see and accessible spots in your closet. Update your make up routine. Make sure it is easy to apply. When you are finished, make sure that you still look like you….just better! Refreshed. Renewed. Ready for a new year!
And, for Pete’s sake…..give yourself enough time in the morning to complete your established routine. If you follow these tips my guess is that you will have a great day….then another….then another.
You get the idea! …and 2016 will end up being a wonderful year!
