How to Look Chic (& Comfortable) feat. CurvyContemporary.com

My job isn't ordinary, my schedule is never the same, and my "office" is wherever the job of the day takes me. Some days it could be my home office, other days I find myself inside a photo studio, and sometimes I'm grinding on my laptop in a hotel lobby. And, while there are many moving parts in my career, the one thing that stays the same is my desire to look chic and comfortable as often as I can!


Being freelance has its many advantages, but I found out (the hard way) very early on, that if I don't get up and dress the part every day my productivity is affected. Like, heavily.


Guess it all ties back to my mantra;

If you look good, you feel good!

The struggle then becomes how to manage on the days when time is not on your side. I've put a few different tactics into play...

For example;

- Taking part in a self-care sunday and setting your rack or your closet up for success.

- Getting Sunday blow outs (when the cash flow is right) to cut down on hair time during the week. {A blow out lasts me to mid-week usually, if I decide to be lazy and skip the gym!}

- Prepping your skin properly and being practical about your makeup application. {more skincare = less makeup y'all}


But at the end of the day it really comes down to outfitting and putting your looks together. You still want to use fashion as a form of self expression, you still want to look chic and polished, you still want to make sure your comfortable.... but now you want to do all of that in less than 15 minutes! It truly seems like an impossible game show! And, after many a days of an "all black ensemble" in attempts to hide my lack of initiative that morning, it really can feel like one. Until, of course, you edit and select your wardrobe wisely.
