Summer is almost here, so let the fun begin. And by fun, I’m talking about your wardrobe. There is no more hiding underneath layers, with the summer weather, your outfit is on full display. So why not have a little fun?



Statement pieces can often feel intimidating, how can they not when you have no idea how to wear them. Even if you like it, the idea of putting together an outfit sounds way too complicated, so most of the time, you stick to simple and dainty pieces.



Accessorizing plays a huge role in helping your look stand apart. And especially in the summertime, you don’t have your layers to help with that, so this is where accessorizing will feel more important in making your look your own.



Statement jewelry is covered in my Summer Capsule 2019 eBook because, in my opinion, they are must-have pieces.



I mean look at the below outfit as an example. Yes, both outfits look great, but do you see how the statement pieces make the outfit pop that much more? And it doesn’t feel like its too much.




These pieces are available to shop in the eBook as well. While this is a capsule eBook, I’ve created this eBook with a mix of summer colors and prints so you can see how to mix and match with colors and prints that you like.



With that said, below, I’ve created different statement piece combinations that you can take and add to the outfits included in Summer Capsule 2019 eBook. Under each example, you’ll find the links to purchase the items.



Making A Summer Statement



The trick to pulling off wearing statement jewelry is by creating balance - offset a statement necklace or earrings with a more subtle and preferably a neutral-toned piece. Once you begin piling statement on top of another statement piece, you will then be running that risk of creating a trendy look vs. an on-trend look.



Use these examples as guidance and again, the outfit guide within the eBook will help you with how to complete your look.

A: necklace // earrings

B: earrings // necklace

C: earrings // necklace

D: necklace // earrings

E: earrings // necklace

F: necklace // earrings

G: necklace // earrings

H: earrings // necklace



Having fun with your look and feeling fabulous go hand-in-hand. ‘Tis the season to shine, so why not?!

THE DAILEIGH Resources by Ashleigh Hutchinson - 1M ago

Being a mom doesn't mean giving up on your style because your busy catering to little ones, or that you can no longer feel fabulous and sexy when you want to. You should and you can!


While mommy mode may take most of your time, you still need to self-care, and that involves loving how you look and feel. Sometimes, that can make all the difference on those days when you find yourself wanting to have a mini-meltdown or looking around your house and seeing nothing about a toy land takeover!


Mommy still has to live her best life as well! And with that, you need to have a wardrobe that'll cater to days at the park, getting down and dirty, running errands, date nights to catching up with your girlfriends. You need a wardrobe that'll keep you prepared for all the above - that doesn't involve always spending money on new items (because that is no longer practical - not that it ever was), and clothes that are easy to mix and match so throwing on an outfit in 5 minutes or less is done with ease.


So, if you haven't heard already, it can be done! Self-care is so important so you can be your best you for your little ones, colleagues, friends to family, but also for yourself.


This post will walk guide you with building a functional wardrobe with your wardrobe essentials and seasonal staples and creating a versatile selection that’s easy to mix and match and cater to plenty of occasions and events.


Back To The Basics.

What does your closet look like? Is it packed full of clothes? Does it take you a long time to pick out your outfits? Do you find yourself changing in and out of different outfits before settling on one that you’re ok with? Or, find yourself running back to the same outfits because it’s quick and easy?




Always being on the go and tending to your day-to-day, your appearance most of the times becomes an afterthought.




You don’t have a ton of time to shuffle through your closet each time you get dressed. If it’s not front and center, it might as well not even exist.




However, you have pieces that you want to wear, but don’t know how to or don’t know a quicker way to look fabulous to get your day started.




Having a closet full of clothes isn’t always the best closet to have. If your closet is filled with clothes, chances are, you have no idea what else you could add to your closet to make it easier to put together outfits. You may feel overwhelmed by having too many options to choose from. Or, your wardrobe is filled with a bunch of random pieces, one-time wears to those single outfits.

In some cases, you’ll hear the phrase, “go back to the basics,” start from scratch and try again. In your case, that’s exactly what you need to do. You have a closet filled with clothes but can’t wear them, so you don’t necessarily have to start from scratch. Instead of continuing to add new pieces, you need to focus on getting back to the basics - your wardrobe basics.

Simplifying your wardrobe will make it easier for you to pick out an outfit and go, understand what you need to add and direction on what to buy to fill the gaps, so you can mix and match the clothes you have.

But before you begin adding new pieces, you want to have a better understanding of what you need to buy.



Wardrobe & Lifestyle Evaluation.

When adding to your wardrobe, you want to have a good idea on the different pieces that are practical for your lifestyle and what your wardrobe is lacking, so you have a better approach to shopping and not wasting your money.

I break down three steps to take before updating your wardrobe in Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook. This eBook is the starting point to creating a functional wardrobe because it helps you assess your lifestyle to understand your wardrobe needs better, breaks down the different pieces to add in and the styles that work best for your lifestyle. If you're often finding yourself wearing the same pieces when you have a closet full of clothes, chances are you don't have the right pieces that work for your day-to-day. Click here for this eBook.



Organizing Your Closet.

To be able to pick out an outfit quickly, you need to be organized. Having your pieces in certain places will make it easier for you to get dressed. Your clothes, accessories, and shoes need their own designated area. This way you can avoid wasting time sorting through your pieces.

I have created a guide that you can download to help you organize your closet. Click here to get it.



Investing In Your Wardrobe Basics


The first step to building a functional wardrobe is laying the foundation with the basic pieces. You can wear your basics with everything in your closet, and these are the key pieces that allow you to wear the same pieces differently.



While your lifestyle may cater more towards casual clothes and shoes, you still want to give yourself a mix of both casual and dressy pieces to make it easier for you to dress up and dress down your clothes and keep you prepared for any occasion or event that pops up. And especially for date night or girls night out, you want to have clothes that’ll allow you to create a dressier look with the clothes you have and not have to either resort to an outfit you don’t love or make you feel you need to buy something. Sure, an LBD may not work for your day-to-day, but a more laid-back and casual LBD may. And then with your other basics, you can dress it up.




Or, a pair of heels may not be practical for your day-to-day, but they do make sense for date night or your girls night out. It’s always better to be prepared than left scrambling.




Below is a sample of the different wardrobe basics you can shop from Building A Wardrobe: The Basics classic and on-trend eBook:


Being that you can wear your basics year-round, you end up saving a lot of money in the long run because you can use your wardrobe basics to transition your clothes through different seasons. With your basics alone, you have the perfect mix of casual and dressy pieces that will make it easier for you to coordinate with everything else; like your seasonal wardrobe essentials, different colors, and prints to everything you have in your closet.


For example, below are different outfits mixing and matching wardrobe basics that cater to a classic and on-trend style illustrating how to transition your clothes through different seasons. Using your basics as the base pieces and mixing in different seasonal pieces to update your look:

Same pieces, different outfits.

No matter what the garment, shoes or accessory entails, it will always be an instant match with your basics.

This eBook provides you with the base pieces you can wear with everything in your closet. The 140 outfits are both casual and dressy. However, you can use these outfits to guide you with putting together your outfits that work best for your day-to-day by swapping out different items. If there is an outfit that includes heels, swap those out with a flat instead.


And again, because these are neutral colors, you can also use these outfits to guide you with mixing in different colors and prints.


Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook will take you step-by-step to creating a more versatile wardrobe with a shopping guide to add your wardrobe and additional styles to your wardrobe. With two capsule selections - (1) all casual clothes, shoes, and accessories and (2) a mix of casual and dressy clothes, shoes, and accessories.

THE DAILEIGH Resources by Ashleigh Hutchinson - 1M ago


Preparing your wardrobe for the season to come usually entails taking stock of your day-to-day and going through your wardrobe to figure out what you need, what’s lacking and possibly ideas on something new you may want to try; whether that be, a new color, print or a seasonal trend.


Whatever the case may be, we tend to focus more on the essentials that we need most because of what our lifestyle entails. And sometimes that can mean completely neglecting occasional wear for the simple fact that we don’t wear it every day. It’s easy to overlook these essentials until an occasion arises and you then find yourself freaking out because you have nothing to wear. You’ll then spend hours either going to the mall trying to find something (or settle or something) because of the lack of options or overspending purchasing things online because time is not on your side and you have to act quick.


I can recall, last year, my aunt had a spring event come up where she needed a more formal look. She didn’t have any options in her closet. So what happened? She spent hours online ordering several options - dresses and shoes AND running to the mall to do the same thing. In total, she probably purchased 6-10 dresses so she could try them on and decide from there. That’s a lot of time and a lot of money going to waste (even though she returned the items she didn’t wear). This doesn’t have to be you!


Just think, if you add a few pieces to your wardrobe ahead of time, you’ll then find yourself waiting for an invitation that allows you to wear your occasion wear. Instead of going into panic mode, you’ll feel excited and thrilled that you’re finally getting the chance to wear that gorgeous item you bought.


It’s always better to be prepared than panicking and stressing out to find something only to settle on an item you don’t really love.


Below is a breakdown of occasional wear pieces to add to your spring wardrobe to keep you prepared for those spring weddings, outdoor events to bridal showers. And affordable options to shop plus an outfit guide!


Spring Occasional Wear Essentials

This occasional wear breakdown will provide you with different options so you can select the styles that you love best and feel most comfortable wearing. You may already have some of these pieces in your wardrobe, which is great! You’ll now have a better idea of what you need to add to your wardrobe to complete your occasional wear capsule.

(scroll & click on image to go directly to product page)



Occasional Wear Outfits

With these essentials, you can easily pull together a look. And here is an outfit guide you can use for guidance:



While you don’t need to buy a complete outfit, you only need to fill in the gaps with a few dressier pieces and mix and match them with items you already have. And if you find yourself shopping for a complete look, it’s possible that your wardrobe is lacking the essentials. And if that’s the case, you’ll also want to carve out time to start adding these pieces to your wardrobe; check out this blog post - here on where to start.




Creating Casual Outfits Around Your Occasional Wear Pieces


Spending money on items to only wear once is what I like to call - wasted money. Unless it’s a gown or wedding/bridesmaid dress; you can always dress down your formalwear to create outfits for your day-to-day without feeling ridiculous.


Remember my saying: maximizing starts within your closet, not spending money!


I’ve put together a mini eBook you can download, free of charge, showing you different ways you can dress down pieces you add to your spring occasional wear capsule:

SEND ME THIS EBOOK!

Even if you do not have any upcoming events, at the moment, you’ll never know when something may spring into your lap. So while you’re spending time investing in pieces for your spring wardrobe, don’t skip over your occasional pieces. And hey, if those invites aren’t rolling in, then you’ll have the mini eBook download to refer to so you can put together casual outfits and wear those occasional pieces you add to your closet. The power in building and maximizing your wardrobe - you’re always prepared with plenty of outfit ideas!

As you know, building a wardrobe is a process. You have to tackle adding to your wardrobe with a strategy and direction, so you don’t end up with a bunch of random pieces that you struggle to wear or aren’t easy to mix and match.


While it can seem like a daunting task, it’s not.


Aside from pinpointing your wardrobe needs and what to purchase, you’ll want to have a good idea of the colors to add to your wardrobe.


And this doesn’t have to be as complicated as you may think it is. Sure, there will be colors that you think don’t flatter your skin tone while other colors may make you feel like you’re glowing. I honestly, think this boils down to your personal preference. You can read as many articles as you want telling you NOT to wear specific colors because they WON’T look good against your skin, but that’s not entirely accurate. Why? Because we all have different skin tones and features -- so again, this will come down to what you prefer.


To start, you need your base colors. Your base colors will always be neutral toned because you need these pieces to easily mix and match with everything in your closet from those soft tones, bold colors to vibrant or muted prints. Your base colors make it easier for you to put together your outfits.


Every single one of my eBooks will highlight these base colors, as you’ll notice on each eBook page you’ll see that breakdown (pictured below):



So what does this breakdown actually mean?

Do you have to have all of these base colors to build your wardrobe?

Are these the only colors that will work?

Should you force yourself into a color, you don’t like because its a base color?


This breakdown is meant to provide you with guidance on adding in your neutral tones. With most of these neutral colors, there are different shades then, allowing you to pick the color that flatters your skin tone best.


Below is a breakdown of the different shades that all fall under your ‘base color’ breakdown. If a lighter shade doesn’t work for you, you can select a darker shade of the same color. Or, if there is a color you don’t like - then don’t add it!


It doesn’t need to be complicated. If you don’t like the color, move on from it. And it’s as simple as that.


From these neutral colors, you can select the base colors that you prefer.



Mixing In Other Colors

Each season, I release a collection of capsule wardrobe eBooks that help you to fill the gaps of your wardrobe and add to your neutral toned pieces. And while some of these eBooks will have preselected colors featured throughout, you can swap out those colors with the colors you like the best.



With your neutral toned pieces, you already have the base colors that will allow you to swap in any color or print and the colors that will enable you to easily mix and match your clothes.



To help with this, I have broken down the spring capsule eBooks, their preselected colors and different shades you can substitute in their place.



Yes, these are capsule eBooks, but they can easily be personalized and customized with the colors and prints of your choosing. This is why each eBook includes your base colors, so you can make that happen. You don’t need to force yourself into a color you don’t like just because it’s included. Swap out the color you don’t prefer with the color(s) you do!



Spring At Home eBooks accent color is a soft-toned, pastel pink. If this color isn’t your cup of tea, below are different shades you can use in its place:



Spring Work Capsule eBooks accent color is a bright yellow. Below are different colors you can use its place.

If you want to avoid pink and yellow altogether, then you are able to select the color(s) that work best for you. You can still put together the same amount of outfits and reference the outfit guide when getting dressed.

If you’re finding yourself getting hung up on all of these “do’s and don’ts” of fashion, remember rules are meant to be broken and instead go with what you like. Period. Allowing “rules” to dictate how to look and feel good will leave you feeling defeated, confused, overwhelmed and make getting dressed feel like a stressful task.

Remember, with your base colors you can add whatever color you want. It doesn’t get any easier than that!


If you’re struggling with adding your wardrobe basics, I recommend you checking out my Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook for guidance - available here. And if you’re stuck on where to start, check out this page - here.



Break the rules ladies and create your own! You’ll find picking out your outfit each day something you can for once look forward to! Stay In Style!

THE DAILEIGH Resources by Ashleigh Hutchinson - 2M ago

Shopping for new clothes to wear at work may feel little uninspiring, or even pointless. Sure, you like to look good in what you’re wearing; however, when you clock in, you find yourself struggling on what to wear, what not to wear and how to feel stylish without being too trendy.


Taking the safe route and sticking to neutral tones, subtle shades, dainty to minimal accessories is, in your mind, your best bet. Even though you may be bored with wearing the same outfits and sticking to the same colors, at least you know it’ll work. And you don’t need to be 100% in love with what you wear to work because you only have to wear these clothes at work.


Let's say goodbye to this mindset. And allow me to welcome you into the new era where you can love how you look at work, be just as stylish on the clock as you are off the clock and stop shopping for separate wardrobes - clothes you wear at work, clothes you wear when you’re not at work.


We don’t work hard to spend our money wastefully! If you’re investing in new clothes, why limit when you can or can not wear them? Everything you’re wearing at work (unless your work attire is scrubs), can be worn outside of your job as well.


Saying goodbye to winter and breaking away from the cold weather and darker colors, spring is the perfect time to give your wardrobe a much-needed refresher!


While you may already have some of the wardrobe essentials, I have created an eBook that will show you how to update your wardrobe with spring colors, prints, and textures. If you find yourself struggling to put together stylish and on-trend outfits for work, wearing the same go-to outfits and confining yourself to specific styles, colors to print; then Spring Work Capsule eBook will show you how to dress better at work.


Below is a glimpse of the color, texture and print palette for Spring Work Capsule eBook:


Yes, there is a thin line between being on-trend at work and too trendy. Too trendy is what you want to avoid. But you can still achieve a stylish look. The trick to incorporating bolder pieces into your 9-to-5-style is relying on your wardrobe essentials to help create balance and tone down those bolder and stand out pieces. This way, your standout pieces don’t feel too overwhelming, too in your face, and instead, feel wearable and appropriate at work.


Using this color palette, you can then mix and match your pieces to put together more stylish work outfits:

No need to take the safe route; we spend a lot of time at work, why waste that time in outfits you don’t love, wasting money on clothes that bore you?



You don’t have to!



Work hard, play hard… and look fabulous!   Stay In Style!

If you think an all casual wardrobe doesn’t sound exciting because it’s just basic and simple clothing, let's think again.


Just because you prefer a casual and laid-back style or your lifestyle caters more towards casual-wear, you can still achieve a stylish look and have a fabulous wardrobe filled with amazing pieces that keep you excited to get dressed every day.


Boring outfits and essentials don’t fit into this equation.


A casual style doesn’t mean boring or thrown together outfits. Sure, you’ll have options that mainly surround your wardrobe essentials, but again, this doesn’t mean boring.


Not only do you want to focus on your essentials because these are the pieces you’ll need to help you create different outfits around the same clothes, but you also want to pay attention to the details of your clothes, shoes, and accessories.


Instead of always adding basic or simple pieces, switch your focus to textures, accent prints and pops of color to mix in.


These simple details can instantly elevate your casual essentials and wardrobe.


In Spring, this gives you the perfect opportunity to update your wardrobe with embroidered and eyelet details, floral and gingham prints to pops of colors.


In Spring At Home Capsule eBook, I take you step-by-step to updating your wardrobe to reflect a spring style. Below is a glimpse of the colors, prints, and textures included throughout this eBook:



Then, how to use this palette to mix and match your pieces to create spring outfits:

This eBook provides you with the shopping links to purchase every single item - clothes, shoes, and accessories to update your wardrobe. Plus, you’ll gain access to a private online shopping guide filled with alternative spring styles - clothes, shoes, and accessories. Skip the mall, avoid spending hours online searching around for what to add; this eBook provides you with plenty of options. The sizes included in this eBook: petite, regular, tall and plus.


If you’re tired of feeling bored with your casual style and always wearing or adding the same pieces, this eBook will help you create a more fun, exciting and stylish spring look!   Stay In Style!

What’s accessorizing an outfit without your hair accessories?


While hats are the most obvious go-to hair accessory, there are other styles that are often overlooked. And probably because you just think they will not work for you.


But, like I always say, you always have options. And in this case, if there is a particular style that you like, you can find a way to make it work for you without completely ruling it out.


Accessorizing is one of the quickest and easiest ways to elevate your outfit, add some personality to it and make your look your own.


For spring, there is a style that has made a huge comeback - headbands!


Headbands can almost certainly make you feel as if you’re heading into your Pre-K classroom and the only thing you’re missing is a backpack.


I get it.


This style can definitely feel teeny-bopper, but if there is one thing to note when it comes to fashion - everything old always seems to make a comeback. These comebacks not only allow you to relive some of the trends you use to enjoy but also give you a chance to wear them a little differently. They give you another opportunity to have some fun with your style.


Accessories are always important. But in cold weather, you have layers to not only hide under but to add more excitement to your look. In warm weather, you’re not always wearing a layer so, besides your outfit, it’ll be your accessories that will make your look.


Are you wondering how you make look headbands look good? Just look at Blair Eadie, she has mastered this trend:

Chic, right?


I have already started updating my wardrobe with head accessories, and most recently added this gingham one in yellow. It’s a-mazing!


There are no age restrictions when it comes to headbands; but if you’re looking to pull off this trend in a more polished way, there are a few tips to keep in mind:


ONE: Avoid piling on statement pieces. If you're not used to sporting a headband and are still trying to get use to this style, the last thing you want to do is overwhelm your look with bold prints or colors.


TWO: Rely on your wardrobe essentials. Trying out a new trend is always easier when you fall back on your essentials - your neutral tones. Because even if you’re not 110% confident wearing a headband; with your wardrobe essentials being neutral tones, they automatically help to alleviate that uncertainty of feeling too trendy.


THREE: Avoid heavy accessorizing. A headband, statement earring, and necklace pairing will 100% make you feel too trendy. Less is more. Allow your headband to take the lead with your earrings and necklace being more toned down.


FOUR: Stock up on your wardrobe essentials. These pieces are your fashion lifesavers. When in doubt, wear it with a basic. Whenever you find yourself stressing about what to pair pieces with without overdoing it, you have your wardrobe essentials.


Headbands are one of the accessories covered in my eBook, Spring At Home Capsule 2019. You’ll learn how to put together your outfits, accessorize, update your wardrobe essentials, mix and match your clothes so you can seamlessly pull this trend off and avoid that feeling of heading off to school.


Have a little fun with your spring style! While I was a bit hesitant in the beginning, I am now on board with it. If you start with one and try it out; that’ll help ease you into this style. And if you’re not sure on which color or print, to begin with, I would suggest a neutral tone. So it’ll be easy for you to style it with everything. I have included options to shop in the private online shopping guide that is included with Spring At Home Capsule eBook.


Warm up to this trend. It’s a style that’s going to stick around!   Stay In Style!

Building a wardrobe is no easy fete. It’s often confusing, complicating, frustrating, nerve-racking and overwhelming. The million questions running through your mind - what do I need? Where should I start? If I buy this then how do I wear it? How do I know what to buy for each season?


And the list goes on.


You find yourself spending countless hours on the internet trying to find a solution or attempting to build your wardrobe on your own, and you can never seem to figure out the easiest approach and an approach that’ll be more fun.


As nerve-racking as it may seem, creating a wardrobe filled with clothes that you love and will allow you to look and feel good should be a fun process and experience for you.


And if that’s not the case, let me turn that around for you.


In addition to the blog posts on this site, I have created a variety of different wardrobe building eBooks that’ll help you along the way.


Step-by-step you’ll learn what to add, what styles make the most sense for your lifestyle, where to shop, how to put together different casual and dressy outfits around your clothes to what to add each season.


The below will breakdown the different wardrobe building eBooks that feature year-round essentials that you can count on for years and seasons to come. These eBooks show you how to transition your wardrobe through the year, what pieces and styles to focus on for each season without investing in a new wardrobe and how to style your clothes differently throughout the year.


eBook #1: The Basics: Year-Round Essentials

Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook is the best place to start when building your wardrobe, looking to rebuild or you struggle with the wardrobe you have. This eBook will lay out the wardrobe essentials that you can wear not only in every season, but you can wear them with anything. All the items in this eBook can be transitioned throughout every season. These are your timeless core pieces that never need to be packed away. With a breakdown of the different styles to add, you’ll be able to easily pinpoint which styles work best for you.


These pieces are wardrobe must-haves. They’ll help you save a lot of money and are required if you want to be able to wear the same clothes differently.


Not only will you learn the pieces that make getting dressed easier, but you’ll also have 165 casual and dressy outfits teaching you how to dress up and dress down your clothes.

I like to think of your wardrobe basics as your fashion lifesavers. Anytime you find yourself struggling to put together an outfit, how to transition your clothes to how to wear your favorite go-to pieces differently, that’s what your wardrobe basics are for! Because you can wear them anything - any color, style or print - getting dressed is a lot more fun and much easier for you.


eBook #2: Seasonal Wardrobe Staples

Once you have your wardrobe essentials, you can then start to fill in the gaps with the seasonal wardrobe essentials.


How do your seasonal essentials differ from the basics year-round essentials?


Yes, you can wear your wardrobe essentials in every season. The seasonal eBooks help you with adding more variety to your year-round essentials. They’ll help you focus on the different style essentials for each season. For example, shorts are not included in Building A Wardrobe: The Basics eBook, because you wouldn’t wear shorts in freezing temps or snow, right?


So, your seasonal eBooks help you to add those seasons essentials. And because they are your essentials, you can combine with your wardrobe year-round essentials each season to put together outfits.


Once you add in your seasonal essentials, you don’t need to do it a second time. The only time you’ll need to update your wardrobe is if you want to, you want to add a different style, or you want to replace something.


The below will breakdown each seasons eBook that covers starting with the essentials:


Spring Wardrobe Essentials eBook

This eBook teaches you how to maximize your wardrobe. You’ll learn how to combine your winter and spring pieces to create a season of spring outfits. Because we do invest a lot in building a wardrobe, this eBooks approach is a bit different. Instead of buying new pieces for the season, you’ll learn how to create different outfits around clothes you already have. Spring can be a tricky season with the back and forth weather, so this eBook will show you to make the best with what you have.

This Q&A will give you direction on what and how to shop. The breakdown of summer essentials will include different styles to help you pick clothes that you feel most comfortable wearing.

*Fall and winter essentials eBooks will be available to purchase later in the year.


What’s the difference between these seasonal wardrobe essentials and your seasonal wardrobe capsule eBooks?


The wardrobe essentials eBooks cover the basics only. No trends, additional colors or prints. Just the basic pieces only. The capsule eBooks include that.


eBook #3: Workwear Essentials

I often hear women saying they need a wardrobe for work and one filled with pieces you can wear outside of work. And I am strongly against this approach. Not only is it a waste of time and money, but it’s also not necessary.


Because your wardrobe essentials year-round pieces are a mix of casual and dressy items, why can’t they also work while you’re at work?


They can.


If you can be stylish outside of work, then you should be stylish at work as well.


Workwear Essentials eBook will how you to transition some of your essentials and style them so they feel work-appropriate and different essentials that’ll give your work outfits some flair because your work clothes should not be boring!


The 100+ outfits will show you to mix and match your clothes and how to put together outfits that are on-trend and not too trendy, work-appropriate, but stylish and more exciting.

Building a wardrobe is a process and an investment. But these eBooks guide you step-by-step and teach you how to maximize your options along the way. Yes, the goal is to look and feel amazing, but breaking the bank is not required.

Following these steps will make this process more enjoyable and practical.

Filling your wardrobe with the essentials will keep you outfit-ready for anything. Having a closet filled with dressy and casual items, you’ll always have something “new” to wear.

And once you’re done adding in your essentials, you can then start to add in different colors and prints; which I cover in my seasonal capsule wardrobe eBooks.

While this is a process, it should be a fun one. After all, it’s all to make you feel good in what you’re wearing. So if that excites you, then you should also be excited about the pursuit of making that happen!
