Often I see clients who have had or are undergoing some sort of life transition. Often, it is mothers of young children who no longer have paid work or who do their jobs from home. Supporting them as they make this transition is a really satisfying part of my work. Today, for instance, I worked with a young mom who has a full-time job but does it from home, often with her three-year-old also at home. Her standard work attire: a cute but comfortable T-shirt and jeans.
We did two important things during our session, apart from weeding out clothes that no longer fit her, since she’d recently lost a little weight.
First, we edited out the T-shirts that weren’t even nice enough for working in at home … because even when she’s by herself, she wants, needs, and deserves to look and feel great!
Second, we made more room in her closet and her life for who she is right now by getting rid of the corporate suiting she’d worn for years. They just didn’t suit her current lifestyle.
Who are YOU right now? And does your current wardrobe reflect and support who you are right now and all the many roles you play? What changes would you need to make so that it would? Leave a comment and let me know your thoughts!
