Weekend Wardrobe Ritual

The weekend

How can you claim back time

How can you make it your own

How can you create a weekend wardrobe ritual that helps

Can you set an intention

Relaxation or excitement or joy or wellbeing

Mark out your time with that intention

Then choose clothes that align with your intention

Find space to focus on yourself and your needs

Your weekend ritual can help you do that

Your weekend wardrobe ritual is the tool that you will use

To create the time that you want

To carve it out from a weekend

which might also be full of conflicting priorities

Set time aside

to choose your clothes

to choose activities that enable self reflection

How can you nourish your soul with your clothes

Is it a jumper or a skirt or jewellery or a scarf

How can you use your clothes to bring wellness to your weekend

And how does that wellness look to you

Is it breakfast in bed in a silk dressing gown

Is it a walk in nature in wool trousers and a cashmere jumper

Or maybe even curling up to read a book in a velvet skirt

Or again drinks with friends in a sequinned skirt and simple top

Whatever it is for you

Make sure you create it

Intentionally

Make your weekend wardrobe ritual your own and do so with great intention

and great self love

Casual Elegance

I LOVE casual elegance

Casual elegance is a piece of normal maybe mundane clothing

like jeans

Paired with something sophisticated glamourous luxurious

Like a silk shirt

and then worn with very simple shoes

Casual elegance makes everyone feel at ease

the wearer aswell as the people around her

It’s a way of being dressy without being dressy

It’s not a formula but there is a way of achieving casual elegance

if you want to try it for yourself but don’t know where to start

you’ll need to be you

authentically you

If that sounds a bit daunting

start with the clothes

Mix casual and formal pieces

Focus on fit and proportion

Choose good fabrics

Don’t pile on unneccesary anything

Whether that’s make up, accessories, or clothes

Keep the colour palette similar but not boring

In fact the secret to casual elegance

Is to be not boring

Boring is dull

You should be intriguing with casual elegance

Someone should want to talk to you and get to know you

Casual elegance is being more you not less

It’s being the essence of you

It’s not formulaic

Your hair doesn’t have to be this way

You don’t have to look like that

You don’t have to wear those clothes

It’s non formulaic it’s about being you

Authentically you

In clothes that make you relax and feel gorgeous and sexy

Elevate your style journey by unlocking the secrets to a wardrobe that truly reflects YOU.

Fun Outfit

Fun Outfit

It’s the end of the week and what are you going to wear

No

Not that again

Don’t wear that

You’re only wearing it because it’s easy

Find something that you love

Something that’s fun

Wear fun clothes

Fun shouldn’t stop when we grow up

Find something that you love

And wear it

A tulle skirt with a jumper and boots

A long skirt with a tee shirt

Trousers with a dress

But it doesn’t have to be unusual combinations

It can just be something that you love

A gorgeous shirt

A fantastic dress

Sometimes it’s easier to start with accessories

Wear those earrings

You know the ones that you love but think might be too big

Just wear them

Enjoy them

Enjoy being you

That’s all

When you look good you feel good.

And when you feel good you look good.

The two go hand in hand.

You look in the mirror and think, “If I could just lose the tummy, wear better clothes, change my hair, everything would be better.”

This doesn’t work.

You need both: to look good and to feel good.

This is why we created the Stylish Wellness Institute.
