Here's the thing about self-care as it pertains to Personal Style:
You just need a few GREAT pieces.
For me, the Spring shopping list includes:
1. a light layer for breezy evenings
2. white jeans to dress up and down
3. sophisticated tees and tanks
4. quality accessories to keep me from getting bored of my basics
5. sexy, comfortable, easy to wear wedges or platforms
6. killer kicks (my year-round must!)
7. slinky date night dresses (or two or three!)
8. dresses for work -- because sometimes it's just. too. hot. for pants.
Here's a little confession from your Stylist...
My hold up when shopping is often this: I do NOT like spending a ton of money on clothes that will fall apart after a few washes. Big brand names with top dollar tags do not impress me if the clothing doesn't feel good or wear well. I like a LOT of stretch in my clothes (because mobility is a must!) Pilling is my biggest pet peeve. And I'd prefer to not dry clean absolutely everything. The struggle!
After working for (and falling in love with) lululemon athletica in 2012, I began to pay even closer attention to how my "non-lululemon" clothes held up. Every time I would go to get dressed for non-athletic events -- which was most of life -- I wished I had pants and tops that held me in, let me move and groooove and wore beautifully the way my workout wear did.
And then my days of pining for stylish yet
came to a halt with the birth of
Kit & Ace.
