Wardrobe Restyle - Evaluating Your Lifestyle

17.9.14


Good morning! After doing a mega pre-fall cleanup of our closets, it's time to take a step back from looking directly at our wardrobes, and start looking into ourselves. Deep, I know. If you're ever faced with the statement "I have nothing to wear" in the morning, it may be because your wardrobe isn't reflecting you or your needs. Your wardrobe should reflect your personality, but also your lifestyle. So today, we're going to take a look at our lifestyles and see if our wardrobes compliment that. Keep reading for more!


Step 1: Think about everything you do in a month. Look at your calendar for the past couple of weeks to see what you did, or keep track in your planner for the coming weeks. Try to think about all of your activities in bigger, more general categories.

Step 2: Make a pie chart! Why pie chart? Probably just because I like pie. You could also list out your major categories, but I'm a very visual person. I spend about half of my waking hours working, and the rest of my time is divvied up between being casual, doing yoga/working out, and somewhat fancier events.

Step 3: Keywords that describe each category. List a couple words for each category that makes it personal to you, or gives it some more detail. For example, I don't have a strict dress code at work, but I like to play it up by adding a personal touch. When I'm just doing something casual, my standard uniform is usually jeans + tee, and I like to feel cozy.


Now that you've got a more in-depth look into your lifestyle, take a look at your closet again. If you've got 10 black blazers, but don't need a blazer most days for work, you may be over-representing that section of your wardrobe. Similarly, if you don't have enough variety in your work wardrobe, you may start to get that feeling of "I have nothing to wear". I'm a big fan of thinking how pieces can move across difference categories when I'm shopping, which can give you more options in the long run.


What does your pie chart look like? I hope this exercise was helpful!

The Weekend Edit Vol. 13

14.9.14


Phew! I don't know about you, but I am totally exhausted after this week. I didn't sleep particularly well, and work was pretty dull this week. And when work is dull, I get bored, and when I get bored, I get tired. On the bright side, I got to catch up with a lot of my friends this week. Had an AMAZING meal at Tuck Shop on Wednesday for my lovely friend's birthday. I love eating at small local restaurants, who emphasize local ingredients.
Moving on to next week! Headed to the airport this evening for a super exciting mini-trip (for me at least) for the next couple days. Stay tuned to Instagram for glimpses into my alter-ego ;). Ok, onto my roundup of cool things I found on the internet this week.

I am so making this tart for my next dinner party! Also on the topic of yummy things, this smoothie looks amazing.

The 13 types of people on Instagram. Hilarious!

Wendy's outfit is perfection.

What would your Fashion Blogger Name be? Apparently mine should be Basic Basil Bae. I'm dying over here!

I have serious closet envy after looking through these fashion blogger closets.

And finally, in case you missed anything on Love. Loft. Life. this week:
Would you wear men's cologne? // My Signature Outfit // My Signature Beauty Look

How was your week??

Wardrobe Restyle - Signature Beauty Look

When it comes to personal style, as important as having a signature outfit is having a signature beauty look. It could be simple or really thorough, but it should make you feel confident and comfortable. Basically, you should have a signature beauty look that you can then build on to adapt to the seasonal trends and the incorporation of new products. Keep reading for more photos and product details!

Wardrobe Restyle - Signature Look

11.9.14


An important part of developing personal style is having a signature look. Something you can always fall back on when you don't know what to wear. It should be comfortable, but also versatile so you can easily switch it up. I seriously can't get enough stripes into my wardrobe, and I'm afraid to admit how many of this exact shirt I own.
