3 Step Comfy Chic

The word we keep hearing to describe this pandemic is "unprecedented". Many are suffering financially with a sudden loss of job; and all of us have been told to stay-at-home to social distance from one another. These are unusual times. For sure, these drastic lifestyle changes have changed the way we all dress day-to-day. About now, you are probably finding your extending "Staycation" style is getting a little sloppy.

While staying safe at home, you do have other options besides yoga or sweatpants, plus beefy t-shirts. While at first, it felt good to wear the most comfortable things we could find because we needed to cocoon ourselves from the unknown. Now, it's time to get ourselves a bit more put together so we can feel more like our old selves slowly...again.

This week: tips to help you put together comfy stylish outfits for when you are going absolutely nowhere. Why? Because simply put: when you look good, you feel good. We deserve to feel our best while we are waiting to get back to our regularly scheduled lives. 

Our new "normal" will be different. While we don't have all the answers as to how, what, or when; we will be going out to run errands, take our kids to school, attend church, etc...one day-soon. Until then, let's get our style together in a "stay-at-home" sort of way!

Then, clean and organize your makeup drawer....+ clean your makeup brushes.

Gently wash them with a drop of shampoo, rinse, and set aside to dry for the next day...

      

 


What SYSters Are Saying

 

Dear MissusSmartyPants: "I received the eBook, Fashionably Fabulous At Any Age. Thank you! I have read it and it is such a good book. I really appreciate it. Kindest Regards, Denise-Melbourne Australia"

 

Hi MSP,
 
I'm a stay-at-home mom of 4. I've been subscribing for 2+ years now and am slowly being transformed.  (Lack of both time and money to shop makes it a slow process, but I'm well on my way!)
 


Several months ago, my husband and I received an invitation to dinner at a very nice restaurant.  After I hung up the phone, my 1st thought was "When can I find time to go shopping?  I don't have anything to wear!" 

But then I realized, Yes, I DO have something to wear!  Thanks to you, I had a casual-nice black and white A-line skirt and a pretty white lightweight sweater (both Goodwill finds) and stylish black flats! 
All I had to do was find a sitter.  :)
 
Thanks a ton!!!

MSP HERE: Dear Michelle,

Thanks for sharing your story.

Your testimony proves my point that when you invest in a couple of great wardrobe pieces, you’re ready for anything at a moment’s notice!

I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that you found flattering styles for your body type at a secondhand store. I always say, “It doesn’t matter WHERE you shop, but it's HOW you shop that matters!”

Knowing the styles that are best for your body type makes you one smart and savvy shopper!

Love, Leslie MSP
