SPSS to Arranging your Wardrobe

Emphasis has been made during previous posts about the need to always arrange our wardrobe from time to time.  In this post I want to simply give three ways by which you can arrange your wardrobe and it will stay arranged for close to a month before you choose to re-arrange.

Firstly :
Section your clothes out, skirt, shirts, tops, pants, gowns,………,,after doing this, iron your shirts if at all you cannot iron all your clothes (I iron all my clothes from time to time though). Hangers will come in handy for your shirts so you can have them all straightened out for long.  If there is no available space for hangers, fold them properly into your wardrobe (note that there is a proper way of folding shirts), you can now move on to your other clothing whilst making sure that they are folded according to how they are. Separate every item of clothing so you can easily reach what you want because you know where they are all sectioned in your wardrobe.

I know some of us might have been doing this, which is great,thumbs up and ensure you keep it up, for those of us that our wardrobes are currently in disarray, TAKE A BOLD STEP TODAY TO ARRANGE YOUR WARDROBE.

Keep your shirts/tops beside  skirts/pant trouser and this is because it makes it easy to combine what to wear for a two-pieced clothing . For ladies, we know that gowns and jumpsuits are one-piece clothing so you only have to pair them with either a kimono/jacket/blazer/suit/shawl then footwear and accessory to match.

Keep footwears be in one place , accessories in a box also, it just makes dressing up everyday easier for you.

I do not know about you,but I feel very calm if i know my wardrobe is arranged, there is this sense of peace it gives me knowing I do not have to look for long before I find what to wear.
Arranging your wardrobe saves a lot of time as time would be conserved when you do not have to lool for ehat to wear all the time. Apart from the fact that some of us find it a bit difficult to style ourselves which takes time, Valuable time is spent looking for what to wear if our wardrobes are not arranged  . Putting together your celebrity wardrobe has been a total success but what is there to celebrate if it isn’t arranged.

In our last post, we talked about our wardrobe and our feelings, do you know that you subconsciously feel stressed if there is a knowing that your wardrobe is in disarray, having to go through the tussle of finding what to wear triggers frustration especially if you have to get to work early.

If you are working class, or even a student : Create time for your wardrobe during the weekend.
My roommates can testify about my wardrobe in school, once I finish washing my clothes and it is all dried,  It remains in the laundry basket until it is all ironed and folded properly before i put them back into the wardrobe. Believe me when I say I have had bad days because of an unarranged wardrobe.

What if there is no wardrobe?
Dear, you can fold them properly in your bag/box, this can be stressful as at times what you want to wear might end up being at the very bottom  part of the bag/box. If this happens often, do one thing ; Make a roaster for what to wear per week, then pick them out carefully from your bag and arrange then on top of other clothes in your  bag, make sure you include your play-at-home clothes , or have a portable carton you can fold them into so you do not have to go to your bag all the time. It is the way we pour little amount rice out of a bag of rice into a portable plastic we can easily reach so we do not have to go tie and untie the bag of rice everytime we want to make rice.

I hope from now henceforth you get to arrange your wardrobe from time to time.
Sending you Strength, Love and Light.

Your wardrobe and Your feelings

What do you do when you feel down especially when you wake up in the morning and you have to pick out what to wear ?
Does that feeling affect the clothes you pick out to wear for that day? Does your mood alter your sense of style when you wake up not feeling good?

If this has been so for you on some occasions, how then can you avoid looking like your bad mood: I will give you three tested and trusted ways:

Firstly, be deliberate about conditioning your mind to the fact that no matter what, your outlook does not have to be affected by how you feel inside, immediately you wake up and the feeling of gloom comes over you. Journal how you feel at that moment as journaling how you feel before picking out what to wear can helps you detox your mind.

Secondly, mentally preview the places you have to be that day, better still write them out,  if you have you go to work, you know you cannot afford looking all confused, If you have to visit a friend, you can choose to be casual smart as you might want to avoid being irritated by a tight clothing or too serious a dress, if you are to go to church or for an interview, try to pick the clothing you love the most and is presentable as well.

One fun fact you might not know is, A dress, A top, A shirt, a footwear, an accessory has the ability to lift up your mood which is why it is important for you to invest in pieces that you love and cherish as they will come through for you on days like this.

While it is necessary to purchase outfits that fit your work style, it is very important to purchase outfits that you truly love but can also be incorporated into your daily life if need be, it could even be the clothing that comes in your favourite colour or a colour that makes you calm when you see it in your wardrobe.

I asked a friend today what she does when she wakes up and her mood is not all that good and she has to go to work while still making sure she is presentable,  Her answer was that she listens to music to lift up her spirit or she calls someone she can talk too who she knows will make her laugh. You can as well as do this too, listen to music to brighten your atmosphere.

Thirdly, Waking up to Affirmations can work a great deal. Affirmations work best on days like this. You can write a number of affirmations that has to do with your body, your mood, your fashion sense. I will share some of them at the end of this post. Write them out, paste them on your wardrobe door, on your vision board,  on your room door so that whenever you wake up and you do not feel too good. You can read them out aloud. Affirmations works little wonders.

Remember the days when you feel extremely good and you just want to dress according to how you feel meanwhile you might just over do it because of how you feel within, sometimes you happen to simply wear everything right .  Feeling bad at the beginning of your day can also affect the way you dress if you are not careful which is why there is need for you to keep your feelings in check whilst picking out what to wear.

Affirmations you can write out and confess daily. Please personalize them.

1.It is so therapeutic to dress in line with my personality and my values. I am so essentially me!

2. I wear right,  I feel right,  I act right.

3. It makes it easier for me to accept myself when I dress my  body well.

4. Every day I am more confident in myself therefore I choose the outfit that will make me confident.

5. Paying attention to how I look shows that I respect myself and that I respect you. I believe I owe it to myself to show up in life, and the benefits are tangible. Not only do I feel better and have more confidence, but also I’m amazed at the response of those around me.
