Meet My Most Stylish Friend, Erin Stoll!
I think I was just destined to meet and become friends with Erin! Erin and I met in a line waiting to enter a cocktail party at Rachel Hollis’ house. Crazy right?! We were there for a VIP Garden Party to kick off the Rise Conference that weekend. I was there with two of my girlfriends, and Erin just so happened to be standing behind us. She was impeccably dressed and I immediately admired her accessory choices. We struck up a conversation and became fast friends! Now, Erin is my go to girl for everything fashion. I DM her pics of me in different looks asking her opinion and am always seeking her style advice. She is rocking the side hustle with her business, Style Thief Fashion. Is that not the cutest name? Erin is on a mission to help women feel their best through their fashion choices. In today’s episode, she is giving us the break down on all things style. How do we go about editing our closets? Why should we even care about fashion? What at the mom essentials I need in my wardrobe? If you’ve got questions about how to look and feel our best when we’re out making memories with our families…Erin has the answers. I can’t wait for you to hear her tips!
The Closet Takeover
I asked Erin to share how we can go about tackling our closets. Especially with this new year, wanting a fresh new start. But I can look around my closet and instantly get overwhelmed. Erin shares the emotional process she walks her clients through and gives some great tips on how we can purge our own closets to make room for those essential pieces that make us look and feel great.
Something to keep in mind when you are doing this closet edit, is that you are a different person than you were years ago. I often emotionally hold onto clothes because they “may” one day look cute, or I have a special memory tied to it, or spent a lot of money on it, but at the end of the day, my closet has to work for me and where I am right now in my life. We are constantly growing and changing, and our style should be reflecting that. Just something to keep in mind when you are making those tough calls!
I also loved Erin’s trick of putting a couple pieces we are attached to in a box for 3 months, then revisiting them with a clear head. Maybe we see them in a fresh light or maybe we are ready to let them go. Try that!
