11-27-17 THIS WEEK: Grab N' Go Outfits

November 27, 2017, 1:52 pm by MSP


With the holiday season just starting; what could be better than stylish outfits "ready-to go"? It happens every year, you find yourself short on time with a full schedule of holiday activities. Make this year different. With MSP's help, there is no need to stress out and let your style suffer in the process. Instead, let it shine bright! With "Grab n' Go Outfits"...you'll have stylish outfits ready-to-go-all on one hanger! 



Imagine, being able to grab a hanger with a complete outfit (including the accessories) and simply get dressed. Think of how easy your mornings will be. The best part is, your day will be more stylish too! No matter your lifestyle (stay-at-home mom, working professional, or retired) every woman wants to look her best and feel great with little effort.


"Grab n' Go" outfits make mornings easier + YOU more stylish.

Use MSP's "Grab N' Go" formula to plan what to wear each day...it's a total game changer!



Invest in yourself! There is no need to spend a lot of money on clothing, instead invest more TIME into planning, and do it on a regular basis. You are soooo worthy of it!!! It's a fact: women that spend more time (not neccessarily money) on themselves feel better about themselves. Read that again... those that care for themselves feel better about themselves. A positive self-image is a beneficial thing for every woman--from the stay-at-home mom to the retired woman. Even if you really don't really go anywhere, you should still dress in a pleasing manner for those around you...and more importantly, for yourself. 

Use what you already own and put together a few "grab n' go" outfits! This week's formula shows you how.  It takes is a keen eye to match up some of your dressier pieces with some of your casual clothes--plus the ability to accessorize accordingly. In this article I'll lay it all out for you...one "Grab N' Go" outfit after another!

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

We always want to "get our money's worth"...which translates into: We hang on to things longer than we should!!!

For example, when buying makeup, we tend to collect it. From inexpensive drugstore brands (like Wet n' Wild, etc.) to expensive ones like Nars. Women are notorious for hanging onto makeup for years (thinking one day we might wear that sparkly midnight blue eyeliner again...really?

Old makeup harbor germs! Believe me...I know this first hand. I had an unfortunate incident awhile back. I had this jar of (top brand) eye cream (apparently creams harbor more germs compared to other makeup products) and this eye cream didn't make my 'crows feet' disappear...instead it gave me RED SWOLLEN PAINFUL EYELIDS!!!  Inflamed, crusty eye lids is what I got using an old product past its expiration date! There's nothing more aggravating than realizing you've been stupid and IF you did venture out the house with such an embarassing condition...you would get some awful looks send your way! Morale of this story: When in doubt, throw it OUT!

This week's Style Mission: Toss your old makeup!

Toss out any old makeup. Don't be silly and keep it (it could be full of bacteria)!

Unfortunately there are no regulations requiring cosmetic companies to stamp their products with expiration dates. TIP* Use a permanant marker to write the date you open the package and begin using the makeup product. This way you will know how old it is...and when to toss it.

Checklist of the shelf life of makeup:


__Concealers. Up to 12 months

__Powders. 2 years.

__Creams and gels. 1 year

__Pencil eye liner. Can last up to 3 years

__Eyeshadow. Will last up to 3 years

__Foundations. Water-based foundations will last up to 12 months. Oil-based will last up to 18 months. 

__Lipsticks. 1-2 years. However, if it smells rancid, throw it out!

__Mascara. This product has the shortest shelf life! Throw out mascara after 3 months. Don't pump the wand in and out because more air exposure makes it dry out faster. 

__Nail Polish. Up to 12 months, depending on the quality.

__Brushes. Wash them every 2 weeks in mild facial soap/cleanser.

__Sponges. Wash weekly or throw out monthly.


 I love this makeup mirror!

There is nothing like magnification to really see what's going on (read: where the eye smudges are) LOL!

What SYSters are Saying

Dear Leslie,

Thanks to you, I removed three BAD pairs of jeans from my wardrobe. Why did I wait so long to do this?? I don't know but now I feel like I was torturing myself, lol! I have a whole new attitude now.

My husband and kiddos are so happy to see me in my new jeans instead of those frumpy ones. I feel years younger and I know I look really good too. Before I kept wearing the same baggy ones that made me look tired, old and sad. 

Buying a couple of pairs of new jeans is a lot cheaper than therapy and it's definitely more fun! I feel renewed and young again. 

Because of your articles I've learned my best styles for the first time. I would never had tried these before MSP. You are the best!

Thanks again, Shelley


"Thankful for what I have..."

Dear MSP, 

Guess what! Last night I was putting my outfit together and decided I needed to dig deep into my jewelry box and be thankful for the beautiful things I have. I found a brown topaz (stone bracelet), shined up the silver settings so I could wear it (I also have the necklace and earrings) no matchy-matchy here! Instead, I paired it with fun silver swirl earrings, a soft yellow top and chocolate slacks. HOW FUN! I feel special too!!

Thanks for the weekly style missions!

Dear Leslie,

I think when I signed up for MSP I got so gung-ho and charged into it full speed, I didn't give it as much thought as a should have. I was so hungry for information to help me transform my style--I just went crazy.

purged my closet, sent bags of stuff to Goodwill, and began to start over...buying stuff...buying too much stuff...buying without a solid plan in place...oh boy! I did get a few basic pieces, but I also got way too many other pieces, in way too many colors that are not easy to mix and match.

It has just "clicked" with me over the past couple of weeks (mostly because I gained enough weight over the past few months that I needed to buy a couple of thing that actually fit me again) and this time a PLAN was what I needed to build a good mix and match wardrobe. Sometimes my SHE-ness just makes a mess of things...

I hope that the rest of your SYSters are truly taking it slow as Leslie suggests. Don't let your excitement over your new found knowledge take over. Be sensible and take it slow as you are told to do. You don't want to have to redo everything again like I did. I'm learning the hard way (and expensive way too). Many of us have been at this for awhile, but our newer SYSters may be going through something like this as they embark on their style journey--and it is definitely a journey! This is a journey I intend to slow down and ENJOY as I try (again) to develop a personal style that shows my inner me to the outside world. 

Sincerely, Anna--a "D" SYS in Canada


MSP HERE: Dear Anna,

Thank you for sharing your story! Your message about slowing down is an important one. It is helpful to others, especially those just starting out with a MSP Personal Profile .

Yes, it's style journey... NOT a race to the finish line!!! Take your time, enjoy the process and your style will evolve into something fabulous.


Redoing your style is about being on a voyage of self-discovery. You naturally gain more confidence as you become more comfortable with the woman you are today. 

The MSP style system is about making those positive changes in your appearance so you can FLY (Finally Loving Yourself...like FlyLady says).


Lots of love, Leslie aka MissuSmartyPants
