TGIF!! Come to think of it, I'm not all that excited that today is Friday, because I feel like I didn't get anywhere near as much accomplished this week as I wanted/needed to. And things are definitely not ready for Easter around here. I better get to it!
My tip today is slightly less about style and more about making life easier. I'm not a girl who likes to iron. I really don't mind washing, drying, and folding, but pulling out the iron and ironing board is just not my bag. It's so tedious and time consuming. But, as a personal stylist, I realize that it's not ok to walk around looking like you just rolled out of bed. This is why everyone should…
BUY A CLOTHES STEAMER!! Why didn't we do this sooner? In addition to helping me maintain some sanity, has definitely made for a happier marriage, as my husband now steams all of his work shirts. It's so much faster, easier, and more convenient than ironing. We did a lot of research and got a standing, full-size steamer, so it takes up about the same amount of space as an ironing board. But I've read good reviews for some of the handheld versions, too.
I admit that there are some things that I should still probably iron. Crisp cotton tops, for example, don't get completely de-wrinkled with a steamer. But for the t-shirt that has been sitting at the bottom of the basket waiting patiently to be folded, it's dreamy.
And another tip, if you're running really late, and you don't even have time for the steamer, hang your clothes in the bathroom and take a super hot shower. It really works!
I strive to make wardrobe choices clear and easy for women who are short on time, overwhelmed by their closets, or transitioning from one period of life to another. Let's connect!
