I’m going to make this snappy. You shouldn’t be reading this, you should be working/cooking/sleeping/talking to your friends/interacting with your children/brushing your teeth but you are completely distracted right now, probably trying to hide away from your reality in a little pocket of social media land.
So hello, while I have your attention let me teach you how to get back into your reality and reconnect with yourself through your style. In fact its all about getting busy. In just four easy steps, or by implementing the BUSY technique you can start to change how you see your wardrobe but most importantly shift how you feel about yourself.
So lets get BUSY
Be Mindful. The key reason you don’t know what your style is, is that you have lost a connection with how you want to feel in your clothes. You put on the same clothes day in, day out. Start a clothing journal. Take a snap, open your notes on your phone and write down 3-5 words of how you looked & felt in your clothing.
Use Feeling to lead the way. The next step is to stop dressing for what you are currently feeling and start dressing for the feeling you want to feel. If you want to feel more focused, wear clothing that is structured and directional (just don’t knock anyone out with those shoulder pads!) if you want to feel more joyful, then a whimsical print is for you. Use clothing to fill the void.
Shop with intention. Reduce the overwhelm by only shopping for items on your shopping list. Make sure you have a clear idea before you hit the store about what it is you are looking for. If you don’t know what you are after then just shop for inspiration with no pressure to purchase.
You are the answer. It can be very easy to say ‘Stop seeking perfection and see your beauty’ but if you don’t feel it, its a habit that must be trained not switched on. With that in mind. Whilst brushing your teeth each morning find one thing you like about yourself and get practising with that change in mind set!
Remember if you want to start feeling differently about yourself you have to start doing something differently. So get BUSY and see how a more aware and proactive approach to dressing can make a change in your life!
