This week on my Facebook group, I shared a little video introducing myself and answering some questions that some ladies asked. I thought I would share it with all my blog followers too! ;)
One of the questions I got a couple of times after the video was how I planned my outfits for the week. So, I thought I would do a post today on how I plan my outfits out! :)
First of all, I always follow some kind of style prompts from a style challenge on Instagram. Right now I'm doing one from my friend @readwriteteachstyle.
My admins and I will be making one for February, so stay tuned ;)
I always plan my week of outfits on Sunday night after church. It does take me about an hour, because I try everything on and make sure it looks just as good as it does in my mind. Then, I start planning the week of outfits. I look in my closet, and pick out something that matches the challenge for Monday, and continue to go down the list until I get to Friday. I know most of you are thinking, Wow! That is a lot of time to spend on picking out clothes. But honestly, if I didn't invest the time, I would wear the same thing over and over because I am always running late in the mornings and don't have time to play around with trying to find a new and different outfit.
This is what my floor looks like as I am laying my outfits out.
I try to never repeat an outfit, but if I do, it's because I didn't plan ahead of time. After, I have all the outfits laid out, I fold them on top of each other with Friday on the bottom and in order with Monday on top. It saves me SO much time and stress! I just get my hair and make-up done and go to the stack and pick off the outfit on top! So easy! Hope that helped some of you! :) Now you can see those outfits I laid out, on!
