Day 10 Challenge
Part A: Make a Shopping List. At the top of your list write S.H.O.P. This means Shopping Happily on Purpose! You are no longer going to buy things just to buy them. No more impulse shopping. Have it handy so you can add to or take with you when you are out and about.
Part B: What kinds of bottoms do you want to get you through the spring season? Do you need another pair of shorts? A skirt? Another pair of jeans? You should have 4-5 bottoms…look at the bottoms you told me about yesterday and add to your shopping list the appropriate bottoms you need.
These are the bottoms we are going to build your spring wardrobe around. If you need jeans, go to the shopping chapter in my book and you will see a guide there of 5 types of jeans that fit your body type. The brand and price is listed for your convenience.
Part C: Plan a shopping trip. Do not take money or credit/debit cards with you on this trip. This is a FIELD trip only. Take your swatches with you. What bright, fun colors are they showing in the stores where you like to shop? What colors will go with your neutral bottoms you have or are going to purchase? Match your color strips of your DCC to the colors in the store….they don’t have to be exact, but should be pretty close. After your field trip, decide what colors you want to add to your spring wardrobe this season to make YOU come to life…make sure they are colors that compliment your DCC. This is imperative to taking you from frumpy to fabulous.
Now come home, look at the tops in your wardrobe, and see what you need to add to it. If you need to column dress (body shape chapter in book), then make sure you have a few neutrals to do this. Do you have colors in your wardrobe that will flatter you based on your field trip?
Inventory your tops and then add to S.H.O.P.
Special Note: You should have 3-4 tops for every bottom.
I realize this all won’t take place today but you must plan for it. In the comments below, would love to hear from a few of you of when you plan to take your field trip.
Good Luck and God Bless!!!!!
