1. How do you determine what you will wear that day?
I’m eternally disorganised so mostly I just look in my wardrobe and see what I fancy wearing. It depends what I’m doing that day. For example if I'm taking the kids to the park I'll just put on something that i don't mind getting muddy. I’m in the UK so the park is always muddy lol.
2. Do you plan outfits out in advance for a whole week, month, weekend?
I dress on impulse so no i don't plan my outfits in advance. The exception to this is when i have somewhere special to go then I'll often plan my outfit days in advance. Saying that I'm famous for changing a million times even when I've chosen my outfit in advance. one thing I've realised is never ever go near my 2 yr. old when I'm all dressed up as he’s guaranteed to make a mess of himself then come running up to me and rub it on me. I actually think he does it on purpose.
3. Do you have any specific way of tracking outfits and items already worn so you don't repeat?
I don't use any fancy plans for this. I just use my memory. And shock horror sometimes I'll wear the same piece of clothing twice in one week. The shame! I wear what i want and it doesn't worry me if i repeat something. Where i live most the other mums dress like Vicky pollard from little Britain so there’s no pressure for me to never wear the same item twice.
4. How do you discover new combinations of items in your closet? (Trial try-ons? Hanging items together?)
I tend to hang items together on the back of my bedroom door (on my super cute Japanese doll door hangers) to discover new combos. Or I'll lay them on my bed and see what works and what doesn't. Simple is best.
5. To streamline the process for 2011 what is one new thing you can do to cut down your dressing time?
Its not really about cutting down my dressing time as I'm quite quick anyway i would love to make sure my sons clothes are chosen the night before though as they take forever to get dressed in the morning much to my chagrin.
