“I had lots of nice pieces that I didn’t even realize went together.” Confident Client
Recently, my daughter-in-law and I planned out my outfit for our upcoming family photo shoot. It took approximately 7 minutes. 7 minutes.
This may not sound like a big deal to some of you and yet if you are reading this blog I am guessing you may be able to relate to this. In the past, this would have literally taken me days, a shopping trip or two, and hundreds of dollars later I still wouldn’t have known what to wear.
So I asked her why she thought the 7 minute choice was possible. Here is our combined conclusion:
7 Minute Decision
The power of 2. We quickly made decisions together.
Fewer choices. I only have my favorite, go-to pieces in my closet.
Kept an open mind.
She admitted she had tried on 10 or more cardigan/vest combos to go with the dress she had decided on. And then there was the scarf. The scarf that she was determined to make work. The scarf that ended up holding her back from making the boot decision. Once she abandoned the scarf idea and it all came together.
All this to say, I get it. The struggle is real. And what I have learned is that less is more. It’s universal. (It works for all areas of our life.) Fewer options makes for easier choices. Also, saved time and money.
