Fighting the Frump Slump

Ever ask yourself, "Why bother to #justgetdressed when I’m not leaving the house?"

I do it all the time.

I think back to my days as a stay-at-home mom, and now a work-at-home mom and almost empty-nester.  These are conditions that make it very easy to fall into a frump slump. 

I remember spending days on end in those black bootcut yoga pants we all wore -- with my black patent dansko clogs.  

Day in. Day out.

I thought I had found the holy-grail of mom-clothes.

What I had really found was a style rut.

Were you there with me?  We’ve all been in style ruts. We’ve got a lot on our plates, and we need to be comfortable. 

But the reality is being stuck in a style rut DOES affect our mood and self confidence.

Sometimes we don’t adjust our wardrobe to our new lifestyles.  

Maybe you have a closet full of professional “work” clothes, but now work from home or in a more casual environment. 

Or maybe your lifestyle is a jeans-and-sweater one, but you haven’t updated your jeans or sweaters since 1990. 

I see it all the time.  So many of us have clothes for a lifestyle we don’t live anymore.

Literally, a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. 

But, I’m going to share with you a simple truth:

When we like the way we look, we’re happier.

So back when I was in my yoga pant rut, I decided to rebuild my wardrobe.

Only this time, I focused on buying fewer (but better) pieces that made me feel good about myself and my new lifestyle.  And I learned how to take basic formulas and change them up to create fresh new looks.

It took some time, some research, and some hits and misses, but in the process I figured out formulas and strategies and techniques.

B.Styled was born from my love of sharing these breakthroughs with other women like you.

I’ve been helping women #justgetdressed for the last 10 years. Over the years, I've noticed a few patterns and  I hear many of the same issues from my clients over and over.

Nobody wants to face the morning stress of choosing an outfit… but we get tired of wearing the same thing day after day.

Above all, women tell me they want to feel good in their clothes again, without the fuss, and without spending a ton of time and money. 

That’s where the B.Styled Style System fits in. 

When I work with clients 1:1, we begin by filling her closet with great basics. Once we’ve built the foundation, we add in a few trends, or accent pieces to highlight her personal style.

In the fitting room, or in her closet,  I walk her through exactly how to mix and match her choices to create tons of new outfits, so she's ready for the entire season.

She looks better than ever. Beyond that, she'll tell me she feels better than ever.  This is what drives me to do what I do. 

And it's exactly how the  B.Styled Seasonal Style System was born.

I started the Style System so that I could reach more women and give you that same experience—in a way that’s both affordable and fun. 

Click below to join the Fall Style won't regret it -  I promise. 

These are the facts:

  • You need to stop spending money on pieces you’ll never wear just because someone says they’re “in”.

  • You can feel comfortable AND well-dressed without “dressing up” everyday.

  • You can put an end to frantic mornings where you’re stressing over what to wear. 

  • You don’t have to replace your entire wardrobe every season or every 6 months. 

  • You should never...EVER...pass up an invitation because of stress over what to wear.

  • You can #justgetdressed in looks you love and still feel comfortable, and use formulas that still let you express who YOU are.  

It’s easier than you think.

Through my on-line styling programs,  I’ll walk you through the entire process - and hold your hand too if you want;)

this is fantastic. I have been living my life in leisurewear as it’s called now. As a trainer and coach, you never get out of your stretch cloths. This is perfect for me because I want to look fab during the day and not stay in my stretchy cloths.

    Hi Heilke, thanks for reading and so true! Some of the new “athleisure” clothes are so good..comfortable, and stylish and versatile. My fav is a brand called Peach. The tagline is gym – work – play. Says it all. You can check it out at

Hi !
I am a fashion blogger and find these all great tips! I work at home on the blog and have revamped my closet this year to items that I LOVE and know that will work with pieces in my closet. I do think do these fit with my lifestyle before buying. I love to wear dresses , so Ive added more to my closet. I have done the same thing and think quality over quantity, as I would rather have pieces I love that are going to stand the test of time!
Great topic!

(duplicate email – hoping for a response 🙂

Dear Beth,

I am willing to join the Autumn group this week … but in fact it is SPRING here – and Christmas happens in SUMMER!…

Is there anyway that I can have access to the previous summer/spring capsule… (I believe I have emailed you before without hearing back )

I am an entirely new (much smaller) size than I used to be, and although I will never be a size 12 – it is a good time for me to throw my efforts towards the goals of choosing well and knowing what to purge…to make the most of these changes.

Kindest regards Marsha
