I am ecstatic to say I am enjoying my first "long weekend" in what feels like forever. After a great sleep last night, and getting everything done this morning from laundry (even my bedding!) and making my lunch for the week, I find myself sitting down at 2pm with nothing to really do. I rarely find myself in this position, but I thought what a great time to get my first "lifestyle" post in! I thought about what has changed most in my life lately, and one of the first things that came to my mind was my wardrobe. Since leaving my old job behind, I have said goodbye to 90% of my black clothing, and I am welcoming in the Summer colours with open arms. The first few days at the office were horrible for me, because I simply wasn't organized! I found myself rapidly tearing my closet apart morning after morning, trying to figure out what colours go with what ( 7 years of wearing all black will do that to a girl) and I would always come home to a tornado of clothing to put away after work. I've started following so many amazing fashion gurus, and I have it down to a science now. I went out on one (okay seven) shopping sprees, and I got myself some basics. To avoid getting overwhelmed I packed my closet with color codes. Light pants, dark pants, shoes to go with light pants and dark pants ... countless blazers and blouses. And I have truly come to appreciate the neutral shoes. That can be another post for another day. Right now I wanted to let you guys know that if you do not already plan your outfits for the week, you must get aboard this train. Normally its a Sunday, and I will plan out five outfits jewelry and all, and put them on a hanger. All together and all ready, it is literally a matter of grabbing a hanger and putting everything on in the morning. Now that I am about a month into it, I am starting to know what works with what, and the process is just getting faster. There are a lot of other things I do to make my mornings go smoothly, but this has hands down been the biggest time (and stress) saver! I have been posting some of my outfit choices on my Instagram, and you guys seem to love it! I will continue to do so, and would love to be tagged in some of your outfits! The shopping will never rest for me, I feel like my possibilities have opened up and I am so excited to keep making outfits!
Do you guys have any major time savers in the morning? Let me know!
