We’ve officially entered into the 3rd month of the year and I’m curious, is your personal style living up to the vision you held for yourself for 2017?
If not, believe me when I tell you, you are not alone!
I’m sure a part of you already knows that something isn’t quite right with your wardrobe (and hasn’t been for awhile)… you just haven’t been able to put your finger on exactly what that something is.
Today I want help you figure out what that something is.
Here are 4 ways you can tell when you and your wardrobe are no longer the right fit:
1. You’re Body Has Recently Changed So Your Clothes No Longer Fit Well
Maybe you’ve recently lost, or gained, some weight. Or maybe you’ve just had a baby. Whatever the case, your body has changed, but your wardrobe hasn’t. This is one of the most common issues I see with my clients.
It’s always hard to accept, or get used to, any changes our bodies go through… truth is, it’s easier to just not deal with it. So rather than show your new body some love, you reject it and vow to change it instead. The problem with that is, by not accepting your new body, you fail to address the fact that your new body requires new clothes. Your old wardrobe can’t fulfill the needs of your new body, so save yourself the disappointment and frustration asap, and update your closet with pieces that help you celebrate your beautiful bod. Your body deserves to be adorned in a way that lights you up, at any and every size!
2. You’ve Recently Gone Through a Major Change In Your Life
One of the things we all can count on in life, is that nothing stays the same. And even though we know this to be true, isn’t it amazing how a major shift in our life can totally throw us for a loop!
The good thing is, for the most part, change is a great thing! It pushes us beyond our comfort zone and challenges us to grow. But it can definitely be annoying to have to re-adjust to life, at a time when we feel like we’ve just started to get ahead and figure things out, but… c’est la vie.
Let me ask you this; Have you ever snagged yourself a new job or had a baby or gotten married, but didn’t feel like yourself? The reason we feel this way is because we are evolving into this new person and shedding the person we used to be. It’s important first to recognize these feelings and know that, they’re completely normal. As you step into the role of the new you, you’ll realize your disconnect to your current wardrobe. It’s important that you take some time out to reassess what you want your clothes to say about you in your new role. Then slowly start curating a wardrobe that is in perfect alignment with the new you, in your new life.
3. You No Longer Feel Confident, Excited or Inspired By Your Clothes
Sometimes, we just want to press the reset button on our wardrobe. Not because we’ve had any major changes happen, but because our clothes don’t excite us any more (or never did). If you find yourself wearing the same 3-4 pieces in your closet or haven’t purchased anything new in years, this one’s for you!
If you’re reading this, a part of you really wants to feel some level of connection to your clothes. Deep down you believe that what you wear is not just a mundane necessity, but an opportunity to creatively express yourself. If what you currently own doesn’t give you confidence, make you smile or light you up, then get to work my love. Start looking for new pieces that will remind you, + tell the world, how truly amazing you are.
Which one of these scenarios best describes your current situation? Have you done anything to get yourself of your rut? If so, I’d love to hear some of the things that have and haven’t worked for you…maybe I can help ;)
