I am thrilled to have Alison Lumbatis on the podcast today to talk about one of the most important things you can do every morning to change your day — and your life!
What’s that? Get dressed. I know it sounds simple and you might even be rolling your eyes right now, but I can guarantee you that it makes a huge difference.
Don’t just take my word for it, though! Listen to this week’s episode where Alison and I talk about how what you wear sets the tone for your day and your mood and your productivity. It just might convince you to try it! 🙂
Alison is the author of The Ultimate Book of Outfit Formulas: A Stylish Solution to What Should I Wear? and her Outfit Formulas have made such a huge impact in my life.
In this episode, Alison shares about her own personal journey to getting out the yoga pants rut, how to simplify your closet so that it’s easy to get dressed in things you love and that look great on you, how to shop your closet first instead of feeling like you need to buy new clothes, and how to create outfit formulas that work for your style and body type.
