Look Ahead

I am always trying to learn new and useful things and want to share them with you over a martini on Fridays but today's Martini Moment is more like a "no duh" moment that I had. Since I was talking so much about being prepared, on Sunday I told myself I would pick out three to four outfits in advance. I'm not going to lie there have been way too many times through the week where I'm running around like a loon because my outfit wasn't right or I couldn't decide. So why haven't I been doing this for like ever? Great question. I don't know, but guys, it's life changing. Especially If you're always on the go like me.

From the time I wake up at 6:00am I have exactly three hours and 15 minutes to make MK breakfast, workout, take the dogs out twice, make myself breakfast, shower and get ready, look nice and get out the door. Having chosen my outfits on Sunday I swear I'm so much more relaxed and even though I'm still movin' fast, the outfit is no issue. I sure will be adding this to part of my Sunday routine.

So there it is. I really have learned that the more prepared you are for the week the less stressed you'll be and I'll drink to that. 

I hope all of you have a great Easter weekend!

My Signature Staple

It doesn't matter if it's summer or winter, you better believe I wear some form of a scarf at least once a week. They bring life to any outfit. I'm always looking to freshen up a look. So I am always trying to find different ways to style my scarf. Someone that I work with will bring their scarf in and have me style it for them. I thought this would be a good time to share my favorite ways to do it.

Here are my three quick go to scarf fixes:

First, and my favorite, is this: Lay your scarf out and take the bottom right corner and the top left. Then, just tie them to make a circle, and wrap as many times as you want. After that you can adjust. Tug a little here and there until it's perfectly undone.

Secondly, and this is when you are literally running 15 minutes behind and absolutely cannot wear all black yet again without something. Throw that baby around your neck and belt it! Done in a flash!

Last but not least is very quick once you do it once or twice. Below is a little step by step. 

Wrap so the loop is in the front.

Pull one side through the loop going over top of it.

A Happy Closet

An organized closet is a happy one. I always say that my mood reflects my dressing room. If it's messy my life feels messy. Here are a few quick tips to get and stay organized. This time of year I always switch out my spring/summer wardrobe to fall/winter. Since I was off for two days in a row (never happens!) over Labor Day that is just what I did. Here is a little closet organizing 101.

There are three options that I would stick with:

By Color- All of my clothes that are hanging go from light to dark. That way, you can make choices quickly and when it comes time to put them away it's also rather quick.

By Season- If you have the space, it's pretty ideal to rotate your clothes according to season. That way, everything you are currently wearing is in one place. For me, I still pack away the season I am not wearing because I don't like for my clothes to be so smooshed in.

By Type- Pants with pants, blazers with blazers and so on. This is where if you are a little OCD it will make you very happy. Combine like with like and by color!
