Eliminate Packaging Stress

Picture this. You wake up in the morning with the sun shining through your window. You get up for the day, give a big stretch, and then head on over to your closet or dresser to pick out clothes for the day. When you look inside, how does that make you feel?

Are you excited by the options there? Or does the idea of getting dressed make you want to stay in your pajamas all day?

There’s a secret to a good wardrobe, and it’s that having clothes that make you feel like YOU, in turn, make you feel more alive. They’re mood boosters that can affect your outlook on life and influence your entire day. 

After menopause and all your body changes, looking in the closet might be intimidating and stressful. You might not like how your clothes fit, or they may no longer represent who you are as a person. If you want to feel good on the inside, you have to like the way you look on the outside. So let’s calm your wardrobe fears.

Here are some tips to help you get dressed with more zest and less stress:

  1. Plan your outfit beforehand.
  2. Start a capsule wardrobe of things that work together.
  3. Call up a friend and ask for help.
  4. Have go to clothes, try them on and know what fits.
  5. Pick a color you look good in, that makes you smile, and pair it with one that goes together with it. 

Here’s how this looks in real time:

I recently had a session with a client that felt she had nothing to wear that went together when she traveled. We started with her favorite color, purple. She had a pair of comfortable shoes in this. Then we pulled out all travel-worthy comfortable clothing that were different shades of purple and lavender and made a list of what to get to round it out. 

We shopped on eBay and found the rest for very reasonable prices.

Here's what the complete travel wardrobe would look like. This all fits comfortably in a carry on and covers all the things you might do on your adventure.

  • 1 pair of dress sandals
  • 1 pair of flip flops
