If Your Clothes Could Talk


It's true…I mean look at the people in Wal-Mart. The people in that place are telling me a whole lot without ever opening their mouths!  But, you are also telling people a lot by what you are wearing. So what message are you sending to others by the way you dress yourself? Are you portraying the confident, smart, beautiful, successful, super fox you are or someone not quite as fabulous? 

The good news is, is it doesn't have to break the bank or take all of your time to put yourself together. I shop at Kohl's and target, where there are lots of sales and coupons, and I am up and out the door in less than 45 minutes in the mornings {:sometimes only 20 minutes:}. 

So here's what you need to know. 

Plan out your outfits the night before. 
This ensures that you match {:sleepy eyes can be deceiving:}, have the right accessories. are ironed {:wrinkles send the message that you didn't take enough time:}, and are out of the door quickly in the mornings.

T-Shirts are still acceptable.
I wear t-shirts all the time, but they are normally a fitted v-neck. They are still very casual but give a more tailored look.

Here's an example: still a t-shirt, but it's fitted with a bit longer sleeve. Fitted, says I am not hiding behind my clothes. I also jazzed it up with a scarf, which brings me to my next point…

Accessorize
Accessorizing tells the rest of the world you care enough about yourself that you did more than just roll out of bed and throw some clothes on. Now thats pretty much all I really do every morning, but thats because I lay out what I am wearing {:with accessories:} the night before.

A scarf, statement necklace, or a perfectly placed belt pulls a look together so much more, even if you are only wearing a t-shirt and shorts.


Pick clothes with embellishment 
When clothes have embellishment on them, you really can throw them on and walk out the door because they are basically already accessorized for you. Take this top for example from NY&Co. 

Because of the stud work on the top of this, it doesn't need much accessorizing. I just threw on my go to bracelets and earrings and was done.

Dresses make it look easy
A well fitted dress always makes you look put together, but the good news is, it's easy. {:Side note: an ill fitted dress looks frumpy:} 
Think about it, when you wear a dress you don't have to think about matching anything else with it except shoes. It's like a one stop shop.


 See wasn't that easy? 4 steps to making sure your clothes are sending the right message to everyone else.

Oh, and be sure to stop back by tomorrow…it's a giveaway!
