After centering myself yesterday, I’m ready to get back at wardrobe planning with my renewed perspective. A good freak out every now and then is healthy, right? If it was easy all the time, we wouldn’t grow + learn about ourselves.
Time to start talking about the guts of my planner so far — and you can get yo’self one right here. I’ll be taking you through each section + how I approached it. This is part 1 — lifestyle.
My lifestyle for October-December is about 60% working from home + running errands, 25% social (casual — like grabbing tacos with my husband, family time, or going on a shoot), and 15% social (somewhat fancy — like going to see a traveling broadway show, or meeting up with a client). Pretty simple + straightforward.
Special occasions? Well there’s Thanksgiving, Christmas, and our 3 year anniversary — whoop whoop! So … gotta plan to include some fun pieces for those days!
And finally, I did my due diligence and researched the weather in Austin between October and December. On average, it starts in the high eighties (°F) and quickly drops into the low thirties (°F) during those three months. So … (since I’m a wimp in anything below 55°F) that means I’m including plenty of jeans, boots, coats, and long sleeves.
On that note — we all have to deal with our own weather challenges, you know? Let’s not get caught up comparing who has it the toughest. Let’s put our energy into creative problem-solving instead.
For example, I’ve heard a lot of you awesome people in colder climates mention that you’ll do your regular 37-ish pieces, but you’ll just not include outerwear + jackets in the count. I love that — such a brilliantly simple idea! That’s what this is all about — making it your own.
What are some of your lifestyle challenges + how do you beat ’em?
