A Style Refresh For The New Year
Are you ready for a closet refresh? Dacy of Mindful Closet has your answer!
With the New Year here, many of us are ready for a fresh start in some way. I know it’s a bit cliche, but I think it’s nice to set aside time and resources to hit the reset button occasionally.
Some New Year’s resolutions will fall by the wayside, but certain resolutions take just a few weeks to execute and leave lasting impressions for months to come. Our closets, for example, can benefit from a concerted clean up and require little effort to maintain going forward after we’ve set a rhythm.
If you open up your closet and feel overwhelmed by too much stuff or nothing to wear (or maybe both), now is a great time to reassess your true style and do a closet clean-out to set you on the right path for the new year.
Give Your Closet a Refresh
A while back, I introduced you to Dacy of Mindful Closet. A mother of two boys and a professional stylist, Dacy has worked one-on-one with over 250 personal styling clients to help them minimize their wardrobes and shop mindfully. With her guidance and support, Dacy’s clients reclaim the time and energy they were spending on getting dressed for more important things.
Wanting to help clients beyond her local area, she turned her services into an online course called Making Space. The course guides you through her proven step-by-step system that she uses with clients: defining your style, editing, overcoming common stumbling blocks, and creating a mindful shopping list. The content includes PDFs, videos, and a Facebook group for discussion. By the end of the 4-week course, you’ll have a closet filled with only things you love and wear.
She only opens the course a couple of times per year. For the new year and style refresh, it’s currently on sale for $247, but use coupon code “honestlymodern” for an extra $50 off. Registration closes and the course starts on January 11, and you’ll have access to it for as long as you like. With Dacy’s help determining what to cull from your closet (that you can then sell at your local consignment shop) and how to choose things going forward that you truly love, you’ll recover the cost of the course in no time.
In each module, Dacy shares a video, workbook exercises, and homework for you to do in your closet. Additionally, she hosts a private Facebook just for course participants where you can get feedback from others and share your style wins.
If you could use a little refresh in your closet to feel better about what you wear each day and save money on clothes you no longer want or need, definitely check out her course. She’s helped many clients reduce the stress of getting dressed each day and you could be next!
Why A Smaller Wardrobe
I’m not a convert to a capsule wardrobe, per se, but I have far fewer clothes than I used to. Having a smaller wardrobe not only makes getting dressed easier, but it helps us appreciate our clothes more. We know where they came from, remember when we bought them, and know that they actually live in our closets! I remember finding so many things in my closet, when it was jam packed, about which I had entirely forgotten. I even had clothes I donated that still had tags on them because I never wore them?! What a waste of money and the resources used to create those clothes.
Managing our wardrobes in a way that is reasonable and sustainable is one of the first (and easiest) steps to living a more conscious and eco-friendly life.
If you feel like it’s time to pump some new life into your closet, definitely check out Dacy’s course to see if it’s right for you!
