She is a SAHM (or stay at home mom for those who are not hip on the short-hand) who was needing some accountability for getting dressed each day. I CAN TOTALLY RELATE. It is so easy for me to stay in my PJs or simply run around in sweat pants and a t-shirt all week long and feel like a complete bum. So this is now my accountability for showering (yes) and dressing myself at least a few times each week.
Actually I will confess at the beginning of the summer I was feeling a bit down about my closet and very much wanting to go on a shopping spree because I felt like I did not have anything to wear. I also felt like I would wear the same thing all the time because it was easy and I don't have time in the mornings (or afternoons) anymore go try on different things to put together an outfit. It needs to there in front of me so I can just put it on.
I felt like I had a lot of clothes from college and yes even high school, but was wanting to personify more of the mom/pastor's wife roll than the single college girl. And in all fairness I was pregnant last summer so didn't have any new summer clothes and was in Kenya the summer before so it had been a couple years since I had done any summer shopping. So with some extra money I hired a girl to come do a wardrobe consult for me. She came over and helped me go through my closet and put together outfits with clothes and accessories I already had! It was fabulous. It turned out I had way more outfit possibilities that I liked than I had realized. She took pictures of everything for me so I would remember it all. The only thing I regretted was her not being able to stay longer and put together more outfits! She did confirm that I wasn't crazy and I really did not have a lot of summer clothing, but we put together some great Fall outfits and she helped me incorporate a couple of accessories and shoes that I had bought but didn't really know how to wear or what to pair them with. So now that its starting (hopefully) to get a bit cooler and more "Fall-esque" I am excited to show off some my own closet shopping!
Ugh, I hate pictures of myself- I'm going to have to work on these, but unashamedly here you go (these for the record are not outfits the "stylist" helped me put together)-
Shirt- Target (a couple years ago)
Jeans- Gap skinny Jeans. My absolute favorite. I wear them ALL the time
The earrings are hard to see, but they are cute. From one of my favorite boutiques in the Highlands from my college days
Cardigan- Also Target
Shoes- Ecco. Love Ecco Shoes. Love the Ecco outlet in Dawsonville even more
Scarf- gift from a friend from India probably about 5 years ago
Earrings- from that same boutique in the Highlands. (All my fun jewelry is probably going to be from college) I must do a better job getting pictures of the jewelry
Shoes- Also Ecco. These red shoes are my favorite. There is no place like home
