March 2019 #justgetdressed Challenge

I firmly believe that the routine and (relatively) necessary act of getting dressed each day has an enormous impact on our mood,   our productivity and even our relationships.

And no, this not about getting "dressed UP" or being vain,  or focusing on superficial, external fluff.  And it's also not about buying more and more clothes.  

It is about putting our best self forward and taking the extra minute or two (tops) to #justgetdressed - with intention. 

And it's about  recognizing  (or coming to grips with) the reality that our outward appearance does in fact have an impact on how we are viewed and treated by others.  

But more important than how others view us, is the simple fact that when we look good, we feel good.  And when we feel good, it has a spillover effect on everything we do. 

One of my last Weekend Update emails talked about how I tend to get in a rut this time of year.  I'm so done with winter and the short, dark, cold days, and I can get crabby and unmotivated.   And then comes the month of March....oye.

I have an issue with March.  I just don't like it.  But since a vacation is not happening (which would definitely change my opinion), I had to come up with something else to help.

Introducing the MARCH #justgetdressed CHALLENGE that begins officially on March 4th. Click HERE for all the info and to sign up.  I hope you'll join us!

Even if the weather is beautiful where you are, we can all use a little motivation and accountability to #justgetdressed each day in a way that makes us feel confident, pulled-together ...and comfortable.  This Challenge will do just that, and my hope is that we'll have a better March because of it!

The 5 Minute Challenge

Helloooo!  Who’s up for a little #justgetdressed challenge?

First….

Over the next few days, I want you to time yourself each time you get dressed.

Don’t rush, don’t do anything differently.  Just go about your routine as usual, but keep track of how long it takes you to get dressed – from head to toe…shoes included.  (We’re not including hair or make-up – that’s a different challenge altogether;)

What’s the verdict?  On average, how long does it take you to #justgetdressed on a typical day??

Next…

I want you to imagine you have to get dressed for the following FOUR activities.  Time how long it takes for you to pull together a head-to-toe outfit from your closet for:

  • An interview for your ultimate dream job, or a major presentation in front of an import client/co-workers, etc.
  • A party or reunion where you’ll run into that ex-boyfriend from high school, college, etc. who broke your heart.  I’m just kidding about this one (sort of;) but you get the idea.
  • A business dinner with an important muckity-muck from your company or your significant other’s company
  • A funeral

It’s no surprise that the most common B.Styled SOS calls/texts I get revolve around these type of “special” events.

This is what I’ve found working with countless women like you, and receiving countless (and often humorous) texts and SOS calls:

The frustration of every day dressing can make us become apathetic, convincing ourselves that:

a) we don’t care how we dress   (If you’re honest, deep down you do care)

b)  it doesn’t matter how we look  (Newsflash: it does matter, and it impacts your career, your relationships and your mood.)

So we end up wearing the same 20% (or less) of our wardrobes day in and out.  Or we default to yoga pants and tee shirts, without the yoga.  I’ve been there, done that, and know how it feels.

What about when you HAVE TO get dressed??

On the flip side,  when a “special event” comes around  we go into panic mode, sending SOS calls to our favorite stylist (that’s me, and feel free, I’m here for you;) and making desperate, emergency purchases.

Or even worse, we end up opting out of the event and staying home.

No. More.

It can, and should, be different…and better.

What if you could get dressed everyday,  and for just about any occasion – in 5 minutes flat?

And more importantly, what if you could feel confident, beautiful and comfortable with both the process and the outfits?

This is a skill that can be learned by anyone,  and my B.Styled Style System™ will teach you to master it.

We are going to practice, and make it a habit – so it becomes easy (and actually fun) to #justgetdressed.

When you eliminate the stress and frustration and feel confident that what you’re wearing works for you, you can forget about your clothes.  Then you can put your focus and energy on the important things in your life —  and conquer your day, dazzle your boss and  make that ex rue the day he dumped you.  Ha!

Getting dressed can become your secret weapon that helps you carry yourself with more confidence, feeling beautiful and comfortable in your own skin, and your own clothes.

“Sure Beth, sounds great, but I need to lose weight first…then I’ll start dressing better.”

Here is where my psychology degree kicks in and I start throwing around smarty pants terms like neuroplasticity and the concept of  what we focus on – grows.  

When people start to dress better, they immediately start to feel better…. and I would argue eat better too.. and this has a ripple effect in terms of health and wellness.     I joke that we’re less likely to eat that box of donuts when we’re wearing a great outfit versus when we’re in yoga pants and an old t-shirt.  Am I right??

When you give yourself the opportunity to be well dressed everyday – without the struggle and stress – you change that negative or apathetic  inner voice into  one that tells you “I’m worth it”,  “I’m polished”,  ” I deserve to look and feel my best.”   Just the way you are.  

The idea is to spend LESS time, not more, getting dressed…

…and the B.Styled Style Systems™ lets you do just that.   You can learn all about the Spring Style System HERE. 

This is NOT a cookie cutter, everyone- wear- the-same-thing program.

The Style System™ helps you create unique outfits using what works for YOU,  and what you already own.

The outfit formulas leave plenty of room for individual style, taste, budget and body type -while giving you the roadmap and focus to make it easy to #justgetdressed each day in 5 minutes or less.

Learn more about the Style System HERE, or  better yet, go straight to the sign up HERE.  😉

The affordable price of the system, and  the 14 day money back guarantee really make it a no-brainer.  I hope you’ll join us!

Now go grab your timer and #justgetdressed 😉

Cheers!

Spring Style System 2018 is here!

I’m sure you’re seen enough pictures of snowy yards to last a lifetime, but here’s another one, just in case you happen to be somewhere warm and sunny and want to feel good about yourself;)   It’s actually beautiful, but would have been better had it arrived in January instead of March.

On a brighter note…SPRING is officially starting in just a few days,  and the colors and styles this year are amazing.

I’ve opened registration for the Spring 2018 Style System™, and I’m very excited to welcome you into this program!

One of my goals with my Style Systems™ is to make personal style coaching available to anyone at a very reasonable price…$49.

I know $49 is not peanuts and there are plenty of ways you could spend that money.  But I think many of us spend that much or more on impulsive purchases that end up collecting dust in our closets, and I will help you eliminate or minimize that.

The B.Styled Style System™ makes my personal styling services accessible and affordable, and gives you the tools, resources and access to me at a very affordable rate.

As you may know, I am a small, one-girl operation. and I strive to provide very personal, individual attention to both my private clients and my on-line community –  and I always will.

While the Style System™ programs reach a large number of participants, I still aim to give that personal attention and make it a very worthwhile $49 spend on your part.

So, should you sign up, please jump in and take advantage of all the resources and help available, and never hesitate to reach out to me personally with questions.  That’s my favorite part of my business!

Finally, in the past I have gotten hung up about calling myself a “Personal Stylist” – afraid that it sounded egotistical or shallow.   But when I work with women and see the transformation that occurs when they start to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin – and their own clothes – I see the value in what I do.

(Click HERE to see a video where I talk about my “why”)

B.Styled is not about obsessing over our appearance or spending lots of time and money on “stuff”.

It’s about feeling comfortable and confident, and simplifying the process of “getting dressed” so we can spend our time and energy on the important parts of our lives.

And, if you join and decide it’s not for you, I have a 100% money back guarantee within 14 days.  Just shoot me an email and I’ll refund your $49 – no questions asked and no hard feelings.

Any questions at all…just drop me a note at beth@bstyledbybeth.com

Cheers!

3 Steps to Get Dressed in 5 Minutes (or less)

You’re standing in your closet,  staring at the jumbled mass of clothing called your wardrobe.

Running late, you grab the same old pants and top, throw them on,  and leave the house feeling less than inspired about you how you look.

Yes, technically you’re “dressed,” but words like confident, pulled together, and stylish do NOT come to mind when you think about how you’re dressed.

Let’s face it,…not the ideal way to start your day, is it?

What if you could spend 5 MINUTES in your closet,  #justgetdressed,  and walk out into your day looking and feeling your best.  Then  you can STOP thinking about what you’re wearing, and  instead focus on the important things in your life.

Maybe you’ll be more productive?  Be in  a better mood?  Show up with more confidence?

My goal at B.Styled is to help you build a great wardrobe that expresses YOUR style and supports YOUR life.  And when you #justgetdressed, it has a positive ripple effect on other areas of your life.

See the video below for 3 Steps to take to help you get dressed looking and feeling your personal best — in less than 5 minutes:

 

Thanks for reading/watching!

Now, go #justgetdressed. 😉

Cheers!
