How many times have you stood before your closet at the eleventh hour trying to figure out what to wear to work, on a date, or for that girl’s night out? Just think, on average women spend 16 minutes each morning deciding what to wear. This can be time-consuming and stressful, especially when you are pressed for time and need to decide on an outfit, coordinate with accessories and get dressed. During these times, I’m taken back to my childhood and hear my Mom’s voice in her Caribbean accent saying, “Put your clothes out on Sunday for the week ahead…” Darn it, Mom is still right! Here are a few tips to help you develop this time-saving routine:
Check the weather to gauge the temperature, rain, snow, etc.
Review your calendar for meetings, happy hour, etc.
Hang each outfit on a hanger or hangers with your accessories
As a bonus, add an outfit for an event (date night, night out with friends, etc.)
How will you benefit?
Reduces your stress level as you have planned outfits in advance
Your outfits will be more intentional as you’ve had time to coordinate your clothes, accessories, and you can make adjustments, if necessary
You’ll have at least an extra 16 mins in the morning or night before to do other things (i.e. workout, eat breakfast, meditate, pray).
You’ll be ready for those last minute events…you’ll have outfits on standby
Your clothing and accessories purchases will be more focused as you can visualize your looks
