weekly finds: spring transition

Before Vida came into my life, there was a Weekly Finds post in this space, offering ideas on what to wear for either a specific season, color story, or item, etc. While I’m not sure if this theme can remain a weekly thing, I will definitely offer some ideas more consistently.

That said, it’s officially Spring, and while the weather here in NYC is still cold (and today rainy!), warmer days are in our future, hopefully sooner than later. Women typically find these transitions hard to get dressed in because we are challenged by things like layers, colors, and wondering when it’s appropriate to trade out winter-wear items like boots and sweaters. But it’s not all so cut and dry. There’s a lot of mixing of items to create a blend of seasonal appropriateness. Here’s an example (with shopping links) on how to wear this typically warm-weather style Mes Demoiselles dress in the cooler transitional days and later when things heat up…

WRNY: 3rd trimester styling

jenny greenstein

I’ve been writing for Well Rounded for quite some time, but recently came on board as their Fashion Editor! That said, I’ll be showing up around those neck of the woods more often, and offering even more styling tips for all you mamas and mama’s to be. I’ll co-run the posts here and link to them so in case you missed it over there, you can catch it here. Last week, I covered 3rd trimester styling tips which I know can be a challenge. Head on over here to check out.

functional fashion

It’s simply not enough to be fashionable anymore, being functional is essential too. And while most of us wake up with a mission to look good, we have the day (and life!) to contend to, and our clothes need to fit into that. Part of the Your Soul Style process is taking the time to understand the intricacies of my clients personality, but also their day to day lifestyle to best organize a closet, and wardrobe in a way that makes sense. Getting dressed shouldn’t be stressful, or a chore, or something you wake up dreading daily. Getting dressed should help you enter the day strong, feeling empowered for what’s to come and demonstrates who you are from the inside out. What you wear should also be comfortable in both a stylistic way, and literally too.

How would you answer the following questions when it comes to evaluating your wardrobe:

  • When is the last time I wore this?
  • How do I feel when I wear this?
  • Does this item really convey my personal style?
  • Does this item make me feel happy, empowered, strong, confident?
  • Does this item really fit anymore or am I saving it for when I lose/gain weight?
  • What motivated me to buy this? Was it a trend? Did I see it on my friend? A mannequin in a boutique? A celebrity?

These are only some of the questions discussed when performing a Closet Detox with my clients. We evaluate every single item, detoxing it all down to ensure what’s left is authentically representative of you, while providing innovative ways to style what’s left, and offering a seasonal shopping list to start building from the ground up which we can go out and obtain together.

Whether you’re a working woman (or mama) on the go, a stay at home mom, or wearing business clothes on the job, but then want to head to a date night after hours feeling super sexy, we can make it happen. You deserve it!

Spring is just 3 days away, and I can’t wait to get to know you, help you detox, cleanse and reboot for the season (and life) ahead.

State Bags: Feature

jenny greenstein

Using our voice is critical because it is in our story-telling that we ignite empathy and relatability. If i could inspire even just one person to feel secure in their identity by sharing mine, and create a space to be acknowledged and heard, it has been worth it. I am confident that this is also how we teach and enlighten others who may not have walked the same path. This is how we can change perspectives. This is how we can eliminate the divide. It is the stories that need to be told. I’m super honored to be a part of the STATE Bags#whatdowetellthekids initiative, featuring proud members from the LGBTQ community, as we each from our individual perspectives shed light on the power and dangers of language. Please head over to the STATE Bags website to read and spread the word about this important movement towards combating injustice and discrimination. Believe me, someone needs it and is listening. #spreadthelove 

rise up, speak up, take action

jenny greenstein

I haven’t written anything political on this site for no other reason except I’ve been recapping my thoughts, giving information, sharing my perspective, links and providing resources on my instagram handle @yoursoulstyle and personal facebook page. I’ve also started a new platform called @thefutureisfemalemovement: a social movement for progress to connect, inspire, share, educate, activate and empower all. Website coming soon on that. That all said, I couldn’t continue to write about style in this space without addressing the giant elephant in the room: our country. I’m not shy about my political views and passionate about us all rising up and using our voices. Speak up, shout if you have to – there is too much at stake. I hope that no matter how small or large your circles are, you are taking a stand, and partaking in this extremely important dialogue.

Additionally, I wanted to share with you a few organizations that our family donates to (some on a monthly basis), and provide links so if you’d like, can head over and get involved too (see below for info). The truth is that these foundations need our donations right now more than ever and despite not being personally affected by every specific social policy issue, your friends, your family, your neighbors, the world at-large is. And now is the time to tap into your values and figure out what type of person you are: one who exists to serve themselves and see only the limited view directly in front or a person who demonstrates a greater empathy towards others, embracing a higher vibrating perspective that we are all one – connected. I’ll be popping in here with my thoughts on this subject matter periodically, but if you’d like to learn more about what I’m doing to help on the day-to-day, please follow me @yoursoulstyle or @thefutureisfemalemovement.
