Friend Friday: I Can Dress Myself

This week's topic is all about getting dressed so I was excited to fill it out!
Thanks Katy! A Great set of Questions!

1. How do you determine what you will wear that day?
I attempt to have some sort of plan, but usually it just happens to be whatever's clean and office appropriate. I also use my new stylit (see #2).

2. Do you plan outfits out in advance for a whole week, month,
I bought myself a Stylit (love!) for the new year as a planner so I try to plan out my outfits for work the weekbefore... unfortunately though, I don't always take into account the weather or what's actually clean, so it usually deviates from the original plan. That being said, I like having a vague idea of what I'll be putting on, even if it is just one item I end up using, or using an idea from later in the week.

the famed "stylit"

3. Do you have any specific way of tracking outfits and items already
worn so you don't repeat?
Not anything special really. just what I've already mentioned. And I don't so much mind repeats. Some outfits are just tried, tested and true.... but I won't bore you with the outfit photos from those days!

4. How do you discover new combinations of items in your closet?
(Trial try-ons? Hanging items together?)
This is something I actually have trouble doing. My closet hangs by "category" (tops together, bottoms together, dresses together, etc.) so new combinations don't just pop out at me... I have SO MUCH in there that I often forget what's hidden in the abyss. I've actually started a spreadsheet with the different categories & colors so I can come up with combinations that way (i'm neurotic, i know) but so far it's a work in progress.

5. To streamline the process for 2011 what is one new thing you can do
to cut down your dressing time?
Try things on on the weekend I guess? But now that I only have one day off a week I don't see that happening. As much as I'd love to cut down on time, I'm a realist, and that just ain't gonna happen!


  1. (You're not as neurotic as you might think) I love the Stylit!

    I created a digital template so I can do something similar but keep it all digital. I also keep a .doc now instead of a physical list.

  2. Thanks for posting the picture of the Stylit. Everyone talks about it, but I didn't have a clue what it looked like!
    My closet it organized by type, too - but I'm no where near organized enough to do a spreadsheet!

  3. This is the first I've seen of stylit and it looks like a cute way to plan outfits. Also loving the nude pumps- perfect shade and shape.

    Feel free to use my photos (with links back to me, please!) :) thanks for asking.

  4. Stylit? Oh man, I am so behind. And I call myself a style blogger?

    Stay Happy and Positive!




  5. Stylit? I have never heard of that before! I may just have to pick myself up one of those as well!


I'd love to hear from you!
