Yes you read correctly…the mornings are chilly, who would not want an extra 10 minutes ‘cosy up’ time. I’m guessing most of us at this point are actually doing this; leaping out of bed at the last possible minute, throwing on the outfit closest to hand (top of the pile)and if we are lucky ploughing out the door with a piece of toast hanging from our mouths,
It does not have to be this way.
I am sharing one tip only this week but it is an important tip and if applied is the difference between the scenario previously described and a situation where you get your extra 10 minutes AND walk out the door stylishly. What I am going to suggest may seem onerous but not only does it work, it works extremely well.
This is what I do; I take a quick look at the 7 day weather forecast, check my diary and then plan my outfits right down to the shoes, stockings and accessories. I hang each outfit on a hanger along with the jewellery and place the shoes underneath.
Planning a week at a time forces you to become creative and utilise your wardrobe fully; no more flinging on the same old ‘default’ items straight from the wash that are never accessorised or thought out.
Tip: take an item you have not worn for a while but love, be it a necklace, boots or jacket and build a look around it.
Tip: A glass of wine and music will help you muster up the task at hand until it is a habit.
Give it a go….you have to get dressed either way, plan your outfits in advance and truly enjoy that extra little sleep in.
