The Power of Feeling Good with Alison Lumbatis and D'Arcy Benincosa on The Play It Brave Podcast

If you’re anything like me and you work from home, or have just fallen into a rut of not getting ready everyday, do yourself a favor and tune into this episode. My good friend Alison Lumbatis joins me to chat about the power of getting dressed everyday. Feeling confident, empowered, and WORTHY not only affects how you show up into the world, but it affects the decisions you make too. Imagine if you looked and felt like a 6-figure CEO everyday… Let’s all take an oath to start playing it a little more brave everyday and hit play to learn some of Alison’s strategies for putting our best foot forward.

About Alison:

Alison Lumbatis is the founder and CEO of Get Your Pretty On and Outfit Formulas, the #1 personal styling membership site in the world. She’s served over 40,000 women through the Outfit Formulas program and has attracted an online audience of millions to the GYPO blog. Her platform democratizes style for every body and budget and is a leading resource to help women rediscover their worthiness through wardrobe while making getting dressed the easiest thing they do all day. 

An author and life coach, Alison is a thought leader in the personal style and confidence arenas. She’s been featured in Forbes, Business Insider, Redbook, Life & Style Magazine and on Good Morning Texas.

The Power of Getting Dressed:

  • When you don’t look good, you don’t feel good. 
  • When you show up for yourself, you show up better for the people around you.
  • How can you show up as your most empowered self? Tap into your own divine beauty.

Body Image and Influence:

  • In a world where social media influences us in so many areas of our lives women are having body image issues.
  • It’s important to know WHY you’re doing what you’re doing.
  • Ask yourself: How does this make you feel when you look in the mirror? Are you wearing this for you or for another reason or person?
  • We default to a lack of self-expression because we tell ourselves we don’t have the time to put into ourselves.

Getting Dressed & Decision Fatigue:

  • If you don’t have 3 outfits in your wardrobe that make you feel like a million bucks, then start there.
  • Start with your favorite piece and mix it up 3-4 different ways and take a photo of each. Start a folder of these outfits so you can refer back to it so you can remember that feeling in that outfit and wear it again.
  • Decision fatigue is real. It’s easy to become overwhelmed when walking into your closet, but if you have a folder to refer back to, it takes the decision making out of it.

Shopping Tips:

  • Splurge on a few main items that make you feel confident. If shoes are your thing, then splurge on them!
  • Closet staples to invest in: Jeans, Outerwear, Handbags (black and brown), Little black dress, Button downs, T-shirts, Tank Tops, Skirts
  • Don’t spend a lot on trendy items

We have more control over how we feel than we think.

How are you going to show up everyday to bring forth the change you’re going to bring to your life? What small energetic things can you do to put your best foot forward?

CHALLENGE:

Go into your closet and find the best version of yourself. Find that Queen energy. Do your hair, makeup, whatever it takes to make you feel confident and worthy of what you want in life.

If this all feels overwhelming to you, then I recommend snatching up Alison’s newest book, The Ultimate Book of Outfit Formulas: A Stylish Solution to What Should I Wear? This is a go-to guide to take away the decision fatigue when it comes to getting dressed everyday (or for big events). With over 100+ outfit formulas, shopping lists, and guides on the most flattering fits for all body types, this is the most inclusive guide to style that will have you feeling like a CEO in no time.
