You got up late – the children are slow to eat their breakfast – a phone call from your mother takes up time – you are being pulled in different directions – but you have to get dressed to go to work – ‘oh, what will I wear today?’ You are standing helplessly in front of your wardrobe wondering. Finally you pull out something and hope it will look alright.
Bad start of the day!
But you can change this by taking 15 minutes the night before to decide what to wear the next day. It does not take more, maybe even less. If you know your wardrobe well, you can also do it by thinking about it. But the surest way it to take out the items and try them on, or as a girlfriend of mine does, lay them out on the bed to see how that top looks with that skirt. – It will also prevent you from discovering in the last-minute that a button is missing or that there is a spot you had not noticed before.
However, to be really sure try it on – and when you have decided, hang it separately so you can just slip into the next morning. No, please don’t tell me that ‘we never know what the weather will be like the next day’ – because it never chances too drastically from one day to another and if rain has arrived all you have to do is add a raincoat.
And if there is no emergency in the morning, knowing that your clothes for the day are waiting for you, gives you time for an extra cup of coffee or to sit down with your husband for a few minutes to wish him a good day.
Once you get into this habit, it will not only guarantee you a good start of the day, but also a day when you feel confident about yourself and your appearance –and don’t forget to add the shoes!
Until the next time
STAY WELL AND LOOK YOUR BEST
