Are you focusing on what you like or what you don’t like?

I’m sure by now we have all heard that what we focus on is what we get, yeah?

So think about this ladies, when shopping for clothes are you focused on what you love about your body & highlighting those areas, or are you too busy focusing on hiding the areas you don’t love?

When we are trying to dress to hide all the bits we don’t like, we fail to dress for all the bits we do like & this leaves us feeling frumpy and less than amazing in the clothes we wear!

This week I want you to look for more of what you like about your body and start to dress for those attributes.

If it’s your legs wear a skirt or even skinny or patterned pants to highlight them. If it’s your arms or shoulders makes sure they are on show (while the weather is still warm). Even if it’s your eyes make sure you are wearing colours that bring them to life and make them shine!

For some, especially us woman we may sometimes struggle to see our own beauty in the mirror, so please ask someone you know & trust to point out your attributes if you’re not sure what they are..

Trust me, once you know what they are you will begin to shift your focus and that’s where all the magic happens x

I’ve lost count how many times we’ve shopped together now, but this session was super special! We were getting her wardrobe ready for her growing bump!

Being pregnant does not mean you have to loose your style & it can easily be done on a budget👌🏻 All you need are the right staple pieces to pull a styled bump together!

How do you want your clothing to make you feel?

Following every fashion rule, may not equal a style that feels like you…

You see, there are plenty of rules around how to dress for your body, however a lot of these rules can be broken for each individual, plus they don’t account for your personality, individuality or how you want to be perceived..

Clothing can have the power to make you feel a certain way, which is why I focus on what’s important on the inside to convey the right message on the outside

I want my clothing to make me feel fresh, confident, stylish, empowered but approachable with a dash of fun! How do you want your clothing to make you feel?

(Shopping session @myer with one of my beautiful clients Shereene)

If you have a wardrobe full of clothes, but nothing to wear then you may need to go back to basics & rethink your wardrobe staple items. Nailing those perfect staples can often be the difference between having your wardrobe work or not work. Just think, you cant build a house with out first building the frame, so just imagine your wardrobe staples are your frame!

The perfect fitting pant is definitely a wardrobe staple.

I always like to start here & create my style around that…

You want to find that perfect staple pair of pants that will take you easily from day to night, the go to pants that you can top dress differently to create endless outfit options & most importantly the pants that are so super comfortable that you don’t feel the need to rip them of as soon as you walk in the door. Unfortunately you can’t cookie cut my styling, so there is no one pant fits everyone here!

But firstly just consider that fit always comes first! Sizing in Australia can be very inconsistent & I know this can be very disempowering to some, but don’t let that get you down. Go by how something fits instead of the number on the label.

Comfort: Take notice of how the fabric feels on your skin? Good or bad.. Do you need more stretch, does the rise feel comfortable, if not try something either higher or lower rise to see if it feels better

Lastly consider your lifestyle: Can you wear these pants accross 2 areas of your life? Eg: School run & lunch with the girls? Or work and Friday night drinks? You want the staple pants to be versatile! #styletip #clientstyle
