How To Find The Perfect Holiday Outfit
Not gonna lie I just finished up my Christmas shopping, I purchased India's gifts at the last minute, but luckily I was able to purchase everything I wanted to get her. But with last-minute Christmas shopping also comes last-minute Holiday outfit shopping. Sometimes I shop best under pressure :)
Here are a few tips when searching for your Holiday Outfit!
Create a mood board
If you have been following me long enough, you will know that I am big on mood boards and using Pinterest to plan out your wardrobe. I found it to be really helpful and I'm always coming up with new outfit ideas before shopping. This isn't something that I do just when I'm shopping, I also create mood boards to plan out blog photoshoots, my social media content etc. I am a visual learner so everything that I do has to be visual.
Online Shopping Strategy
I personally prefer to shop online, because I can take as long as I want without my feet getting tired. Plus when I shop at a physical store, I take all day because I'm literally styling every single piece that I plan on purchasing. Shopping online allows you to style the items in your closet while you are shopping online. For example you see a dress that you love online but you're not sure if you have shoes for it. You can simply slide your laptop over to your closet and figure out which pieces will work with that dress.
I also recommend searching keywords when shopping online. For example sequin dress, you're gonna get a ton of recommendations thanks to our bff Google. Being that the holidays are approaching fast your probably need to be ordering your stuff like today while you're reading this blog post.
Shopping In-Store during the Holidays sucks! NO one says excuse me, some people feel entitled to push you out of the way. I don't like it. BUT if you must shop go when the stores first open, most people are still at work, so you won't feel so rushed. Make sure you stay focused while you're in the store keep your mood board handy so you can go back and reference what you need to pick up.
