11-9-20 THIS WEEK: Grab n' Go Outfits for Fall

November 7, 2020, 1:00 pm by MSP

 

What could be better than stylish outfits "ready-to go"? 

Perhaps you have just cleaned out your closet (or maybe this week's article will inspire you to do so)...getting outfits altogether on one hanger is a lifestyle game-changer.

This version of "Grab n' Go Outfits" are for fall, and are more relaxed and casual since we are spending more time at home. However, they are still fab outfits ready-to-go...and all on one hanger! 

 

 

Imagine, grabbing one hanger with a complete outfit (including the accessories) and quickly dressing from head to toe. No more searching through the closet, trying to put something together. Think of how easy your mornings will be. Start off your days on a positive note: knowing you look good, and it took only a few minutes to dress. Everything is all together and ready.

No matter your lifestyle (stay-at-home mom, working professional, or retired) every woman wants to look and feel her best with little effort.

 

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

 

There is no need to spend a lot of money on clothing, instead spend a little time planning your outfits. You are soooo worth 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 all women--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.

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. 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 learned 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.

 


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!
