I’m thrilled to have Alison Lumbatis on the podcast today to talk about one of the most important things you can do each morning to change your day – and your life!
What is it? To get dressed. I know it sounds easy and you might even roll your eyes right now, but I can guarantee you it will make a world of difference.
But don’t just take my word for it! Listen to this week’s episode where Alison and I talk about how your clothes set the tone for your day, mood, and productivity. It might just convince you to give it a try! 🙂
Alison is the author of The Ultimate Book of Outfit Formulas: A Stylish Solution to What Should I Wear? and their outfit formulas have influenced my life so much.
In this episode, Alison shares her personal journey of getting those yoga pants out, how you can simplify your closet so it’s easy to put on things you love and look good on you, like shopping your closet first instead of feeling like that you need to buy new clothes and how to create outfit formulas that fit your style and body type.
