Sometimes with creative things it helps me to put it all together into an organized list. I’m the queen of lists when it comes to my daily schedule, my to-do’s and anything else I have to figure out for the day. I always write them out on paper and highlight and cross things off as I complete them. Something about it feels so rewarding when I get to check things off! Anyone else with me? I’ll even add things to the list that I already did just so I can check them off (ha!)
I’ve never thought to turn my outfits into a checklist too, but there can be a bit of a routine to the way I dress sometimes without even realizing it — it’s kind of a form of a mental checklist. There are, of course, so many ways to put together every kind of outfit, but I thought it would be fun to try to write out some of my mental outfit checklists so you can see a bit of my thought process.
I wore this cute red dress the other day which inspired this checklist for a casual, feminine look. Here’s what I always include:
✔️ mini heels – short heels keep it casual while suggesting that you put effort into your outfit today.
✔️ casual dress – this is definitely the main focus of the outfit, so find a material and pattern/color that says “casual,” and the fact that it’s a dress will add that feminine touch.
✔️ pop of color – this is the perfect place to add some personality and tone to your outfit. I’m really into red lately!
✔️ subtle lips – I like to keep the makeup looking natural for a softer look. A light gloss or just a nude color works perfectly.
✔️ hair down – I pretty much wear my hair down every day with some messy waves (tutorial here!)
✔️ girly bag – since the pop of color was in my dress, I wanted to keep the bag simple, and Chloé is always the perfect brand when I’m going for “girly,” so it was an easy choice.
