How To Get Dressed Quickly
Imagine being able to face your wardrobe each morning and not freak out. You'll be able to easily put together your look and get your day started. That would be amazing you’re thinking but instead, this sounds more like your daily morning routine:
You didn’t think about your outfit the night before, you’re scrambling to put something together so you don’t run late so you just grab something -- maybe it’s the first thing you see or something you always grab for, you pair it with another item and that doesn’t work for you, so you’re back in front of your closet starting to panic a little on what to put on. You grab another item just to realize you don’t like how it fits on you so that item goes back into the closet. The clock is ticking and you’re now at the point where fixing yourself a nice healthy breakfast is out the door -- so you just completely scratch the entire look and go with what you always wear.
You’re already stressed and your day is just beginning. You don’t like the outfit you’re wearing but by now, you’re use to that.
Does this sound like your life every time you have to get dressed?
I know our busy lives can get in the way of taking care of things that’ll make it easier for us to look more fashionable and feel more confident about what we’re wearing and the start of this is knowing what you have in your closet. If your wardrobe is all over the place with clothes everywhere, that already is a headache on it’s own.
Step one for you is organizing your closet.
