What I Outsource to Save Time


Of all the non-style related questions I’m asked the most frequent is how I find “balance” and get so much done. So today I’m sharing some of the ways I delegate tasks to help me be as efficient as possible. I’m a productive person by nature, so I thrive when I find my rhythm and am crossing items off my to-do list. I can’t preach to the balance part, and luckily I’m not trying to gain any. True balance isn’t feasible. Instead, I focus on leveraging my strengths and the areas I’m not so great at, I outsource.

How to Let Go of Clothes You No Longer Need

How to Get Rid of Clothes you Don't Need

We are wrapping up our first 30 Day Style Challenge for the year, and once again I’m hoping that our participants learned as much as I did. Each time around, I get a better sense of where our clients and readers struggle. Today’s post is taken directly from the conversations I had with our participants. (If you would like to sign up for the next round, follow the link here.)

A big part of our style challenge is diving into your current wardrobe, and purging it of items you no longer, like, need our use. By the time our challenge is over, participants comment about how free and light they feel. We’re so use to having so much stuff, when we are finally organized it’s like a weight has been lifted.

The Best Way to Organize Your Jewelry

Jewelry Ogranization

Over the last decade, I have been in thousands of women’s closets. Crazy, right? While they have all been unique to the women who own them, they also showcase our similarities. I have never stepped foot in a “Pinterest” worthy closet. No matter who the client, their position in life, career, where they live or what kind of house they own, all of the closets of the women I have been fortunate to work with have been, well, basic. Just an everyday closet. No chandelier, marble topped island, or perfectly color coordinated neatly stacked sweaters. I always found it comforting to know that even women who I assume have it all together, dare I say “perfect,” are just doing the best they can with what they have.
