Where are you going?
As we experience this weird Californian 90-degrees-hot limbo between Summer and any semblance of true Autumn, it's a great time to look back at where we've been and think on where we might be headed - literally and stylistically.
These photos come from my very first Official Business Photo Shoot back in 2014, and I still love the sleek lines and black-and-blue combo!
Still, with #LadyLeader and ColorFest - plus totally fun date nights like Tom Petty and Eric Clapton concerts! - on the horizon here in 2017, I'm realizing that my business has grown a lot since then, and my style along with it. I've met so many fantastic people - both clients and colleagues - who have helped me evolve.
This year, I'm stepping into my Fall event plans a little more relaxed, a little more colorful, and a little more earthy. This feels true and good to me as a reflection of the work I LOVE doing with entrepreneurs & moms as well as my fabulous corporate clients.
What do you have planned for Fall? A magical Halloween dressed up with the kiddos? Date nights with your special someone? Will you visit family for Thanksgiving? Host parties at home? Travel?
Try to picture yourself participating in these activities that are important to you - how do you look, feel, and act? What kinds of movements do you make - will you glide across a dance floor? Chase three dogs through the yard? Take first place in this year's Turkey Trot? Whip up your famous batch of Christmas cookies?
And while you do these things, what would be comfortable, cheerful, and inspiring to wear? Do you have the perfect outfits in your closet already? Or do you need to spend some time to purge, edit, remix, or restock?
As they say, "Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle."*
There's never a perfect time to haul everything out of the closet, finally take your formal dresses to the tailor, or research new running shoes because you finally wore a hole in your go-to pair - but doing these things is awesome, because it lays the foundation for an easier, happier season ahead.
Here's to the changing of the seasons, which reminds us never to stand quite so still.
