Am I In Your Head?

I often hear this from clients and women from network events;

“When I got dressed this morning I could hear your voice saying wear a colour that suits you.”

“You are always in my head when I get dressed.”

“Your voice is in my head when I am shopping… now what would Karen choose?”

Am I in your head?

These comments are compliments to me because I am ALL about… teaching you to shop with intention, dressing to honour who you are and your body type and bringing awareness to the message you are sending.

Have you downloaded your GIFTS yet? Have you? Have you? Have you? (I feel like Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory).

These gifts will help you to make getting dressed much easier and faster.

As I was perusing through my summer wardrobe, I thought I would try mixing up some new with older pieces, to make outfits for the weekend.

I plan to be entertaining grand kids and here are 2 outfits that I feel I can wear to enjoy time in the park with them. Plus, I like my clothes to give me energy if I need them too (that is by adding WOOD energy from Fashion Feng Shui) and wearing clothes with stretch and ease of movement does that!

Here is what I plan to wear:

  1. White knit capris from Nygard. Floral, flowy top from Nygard collection.
  2. Denim capris from HUE. Navy and white striped top from Old Navy.
  3. And of course a comfortable pair of sandals by Sketcher, in navy.

Take time to make the most of wearing what is in your closet. What do you want the outfit for? Attending a BBQ? Driving to explore a scenic town? Walks in the park?

You won’t know what is in your closet, if you don’t spend some time giving it TLC.

It’s Not Too Late!

Well here we are heading into July already and even thought the weather has been sporadically sunny, the general energy is that of slowing down to enjoy summer.

This may free up some time for you to do some editing in your closet.

This Spring, I offered a complimentary download called, “Wave Good-bye! 21 Reasons to Let Go!”

Many women say they can’t get started, the job is too big, or they can’t let go of things. This download gives you 21 baby steps to take so you don’t have to tackle it all at once unless you want to.

** Download it here!

It isn’t too late to de-clutter your closet. In fact, it’s never too late!

Perhaps you will discover a new way to wear an item. For example, how about pairing your jean jacket over a dress or summer skirt?

Maybe you will find a treasure in your jewelry box, like a statement necklace, that will update a t-shirt or top.

From PREDICTABLE to PDA!

I just had a wonderful conversation with a woman, explaining what it is I do, since she was over to interview me before signing me up to speak at their store. Our conversation gave me the idea for this story.

I was so happy to know she loves wearing colour and therefore really stands out in her family.

She is sad that her sister lives in black and yoga pants. And… she said that now her Mother has retired, she has given up!

“She is PREDICTABLE and BORING. All she does is throw on a pair of pants and a t-shirt! She has lost a reason to dress with some interest since she says she is ONLY at home.”

”What message is her Mother sending to herself, her husband, her family and her friends?” I ask.

“I have given up.” is her look!

Is that you? Are you predictable, plain and boring to yourself and your family?

YOU Could Have This Too!

Hello from North Bay. I zipped up for three days to help my sister and of course to swim and visit. Also, it was to escape the extra hot, humid weather of the south.

It takes me minutes to pack because I follow a formula that I am about to REVEAL to you too!

I brought 2 pair of capris and 3 tops with me. One is long sleeved for the evenings and cool mornings.

I wore a long summer dress as I drove here because I don’t like to wear constricting waist bands in the car for a longer drive. Besides it can serve as a bathing suit cover up and if I wanted something for going out for dinner, I am all set.

Weddings… Beach, Garden, Traditional… OH MY!

Whether you are Mother of the Bride or Groom, or attending a wedding this year, I am sure you have asked yourself, “What am I going to wear?”

You are not alone. Now with all the various locations and times of weddings, it can be even more confusing.

I am here to guide you with 3 tips to get started.

(1) Location, location, location:

Where the wedding takes place plays a big part in what is appropriate to wear.

A wedding in a big hotel or even a country club is going to be more formal.

A beach wedding is more casual and a garden wedding will be in between.

If the wedding is outdoors, consider wearing a long sundress and beware… no spiked heels since you will be sinking into the sand or grass.

(2) Time of day:

The key here is that night-time weddings are dressier.

Daytime weddings are informal or semi- formal. You can wear a 2 piece suit or top and satiny type of skirt, or a cocktail dress. It is best to avoid wearing black to a daytime wedding.

DON’T go ultra casual to a wedding… it is the Bride’s important day so respect her and the occasion!

(3) Invitation specific:

Many invitations specify the type of attire, yet you may still be wondering.

Casual: This may mean a beach wedding, a BBQ, a barn? These may not mean a long dress, however, it still means you need to dress up and the big change will be the shoes.

Cocktail: Here is pretty straight forward… a cocktail dress is the most appropriate. This also generally means it is not a floor length gown.

Black tie: If the invitation says Black Tie, you will see floor length gowns, yet you can be elegant in a cocktail dress, especially if it comes to the knee. Add your accessories here to take it to a higher level.

White tie: This is as formal as you can get!!

Casual dresses are from ZuZu Fashion Boutique in Barrie.

How to Make Summer Event Wardrobe Worries Disappear

Summer is fast approaching and with it comes weddings, BBQ parties, pool parties etc.

As a fashion and wardrobe coach, I hear from my clients about the things that stress them out and getting dressed for summer events is one of them.

I want you to feel at ease with yourself and stress-free. Let’s see if I can help you do that!

“I’m worried about looking appropriate for an upcoming event.”

Events can be a bit tricky, as you’re not only dressing for the event; you’re dressing for the venue, the people, and the weather. The first thing to do when starting to plan your look for an event is to study the invitation. Does it have a dress code on it alerting you to the type of outfit you should be wearing? Is the invitation design formal or informal? Every invitation holds clues for you.

The next thing you can do is research the location of the event. Google is your friend here. Look up what the weather will be like during the days you’ll be there or how the weather normally behaves during that time of year. What will also help is to look at the venue’s website for photos of previous events held at this location. Even though you may be attending an event in a barn, you may see by the photos that elegant parties are the norm.

By researching these different factors, you can more confidently figure out an outfit that you’d feel comfortable in and one that would be appropriate for the setting as well.

Of course, if you have been following me, you know I will recommend that you wear outfits that compliment your skin undertone and your body shape. Those alone will help boost your confidence.

Need help putting outfits together? Call me. I would love to assist you! 905-775-7486

Too Hot For Capris or Jeans?

What Are You Wearing This Holiday Weekend?

It is the May long weekend here in Ontario and the weather is finally matching the date!

Are you traveling to a cottage? Visiting friends? Maybe sightseeing?

Here in Barrie, it is beautiful to walk at the waterfront and the restaurants with their street patios are pulsing with energy.

What do you wear to enjoy a weekend or dinner outside at your local restaurant?

Are you already finding it a challenge to know what to wear in the heat and still feel comfortable and in style?

I am going to share my “go to” dresses with you! I really enjoy wearing longer dresses. They fall nicely to cover my tummy area, and cover my legs. So I look dressy, yet relaxed.

Yes, being only 5’0, can sometimes pose a problem with finding long dresses, however, they are out there!

For a cool evening, you can pair your dress with the popular look of a jean jacket.

To get started on discovering styles for the summer, I invite you to join me in a closet edit, so you know what is hiding in there!

Does Your Closet Support Your Superwoman Life?

Wouldn’t it be great to stand in your closet, twirl around and ZAP! You are in your desired outfit of the day!

Or, feel like you can conquer or save the world, because the outfit you are wearing makes you feel so confident!

How do you want to feel in your clothes?

Are you able to reach in and grab an outfit that you know supports your colouring, body type and role for that day?

Do you have mix and match items that are easy to see?

We are in a society of multi-tasking and really are Superwomen; running a home, making meals, working a business, maybe raising children, learning technology and being in relationship.

When your closet supports you…you can quickly and easily have clothes ready for the day. It is organized and… holds only the items that fit you, are clean and mended and are for the current season for the time of year.

When your clothing supports you… the colour is flattering on you, the items suit your body shape and your personality. YOU shine as the SUPER woman that you are!

It takes little time, no stress and you smile as you look in the mirror, before flying off to be the heroine of the day!
