A Coach’s Take on Personal Styling

Coach Lisa Guillot from Be Bright Lisa sat down with me to find out a bit more on personal styling.


I asked Annie to share her thoughts on personal branding and how your brand walks into a room before you do. For me, this is totally reflective of a holistic approach blending your commitments, personal essence, social media, and style. I believe that your personal style plays right into your confidence and how you show up in a room.

Take it from here, Annie…

Newest Trend for Fall 2018

Fight Against Brain Cancer

It’s that awesome time of year where layers are needed (and happen to easily “step up” any outfit).

The focus in this letter are on blazers, but all jackets apply here.  Whether you’re going the old school Julia Roberts’ Pretty Woman double-breasted blazer route, a classic navy or black, or a textured tweed, blazers add the finished look over a tee, blouse, or sweater. 

 

Shackets Fall 2018 Style Trend

Help us fight against brain cancer

Some Tips:

*When checking for fit- do the driving test & put your arms out like you’re driving a car.  This will tell you how snug the back is.

*The seam should fall right on the edge of your shoulder and arm.

*Is there a fun lining or button detail?

The new(er) thing stores and boutiques have been selling are “Shackets,” where sweaters meet jackets.  These blazers are a way to polish a look with serious comfort.
If a Shackets seems a bit too casual for your job/occasion, I’ve listed some other options that I loved.

And Just a Little Something I Wanted to Share:

We joining the fight against Brain Cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure Chicago 5K on Sunday, October 21, 2018, held at Diversey Harbor. The race begins at 8:00 a.m.

Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of local and national medical centers with the expertise and desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors. Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, and caregivers. This organization is dedicated to raising funds for much-needed brain cancer research. They also provide emotional and educational support for patients as well as their families at local hospitals’ brain cancer treatment centers.

 

Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting-edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight to treat and cure these tumors.

Please consider making a donation, or run or walk with us, to help us reach our goal and enable Head for the Cure to defeat brain cancer, step by step. Click HERE and should take you directly to Staunton’s Striders donation page.

 

Let’s make this our greatest year ever!

My best to all, Staunton, Annie, Staunton and new baby girl, Kyle

Mindful Shopping

Chicago Personal Stylist

“But It’s On Sale….”

As the sidewalk sales are plentiful and large sections of stores/boutiques are having big sales, we get so easily tempted to tell ourselves…”oh it’s only X dollars…I’ll get it!!”

Before you hit that GREAT SALE, mindful shopping

And as much as I LOVE shopping, I’m here to tell you to hold off!!  Unless it ABSOLUTELY flatters you and you aren’t just buying it because you’re in the mood, just wanting something new, etc.

I recently read that the average American throws away 81 LBS. of clothing each year… that’s WILD!  And if you’re not tossing, then those unwanted pieces may just be taking up great real estate in your closet/drawers.

Before you hit that GREAT SALE, mindful shopping

Chicago Personal Stylist

This is just a friendly note to challenge you to buy what looks best on you. If there is a new style, color, print you’d like to try that you aren’t sure about, then a sale may be your way to go!
Consider me the stylist bug in your ear really making you think before your next purchase :o)

And I’ve been a victim of many sales, but working on it and wanting to help you out as well!!

Have a stylish, fun week.

Much Love to you,
Annie
