When you open your wardrobe does it fill you with excitement or dread?
Does your wardrobe reflect who you are and what you do?
I can hear many of you reading this feature answering ‘dread’ to the first question and ‘no’ to the second question. Well, don’t panic..you are not alone!

So, who are you?
Your style personality will help you understand why you buy the style and colour of clothes you do. But, to really make sure your wardrobe works for you it also needs to tell the story of what you do ie; single working lady, working mum, full time mum, part time mum or full time working woman. Depending on what you do, work out what clothes you need, for example if you are a part time working mum who works 3 days a week your wardrobe needs to have work wear for 3 days and more casual items for the other 4 days.
Trust me but when your wardrobe works for you it really will make you smile when you open that door each day.
Lots of love
