Transitions are undoubtedly hard, but necessary. They are the bridge between before and after and we typically come out on the other side stronger, wiser and better than before. But how we embrace these changes is key, and actively participating in the process is a necessary component to the success of it.
As a Personal Stylist, and an avid believer that your wardrobe functions as an extension of the inner self, a new season is one of the best times to evaluate, detox, establish a fresh foundation and reboot for the months ahead. Beginning with a Closet Cleanse allows us to release, create space for newness and part of successful growth means letting go and shedding. Closet Cleanses include:
- 1-hour Styling Evaluation to determine needs and goals
- 4-hour Closet Cleanse to detox your closet (time of Closet Cleanse depends on individual)
- Closet Organization by category and color
- Outfit styling from your existing wardrobe
- List of must-have closet organization tools/wardrobe kit
- Curated shopping list of the must-have pieces that are missing from your closet
That all said, I can’t wait to work with you. To learn more, read about others experiences here, here and here + please send me a note @ firstname.lastname@example.org to chat more about it in person. For a complete list of services click here. I can’t wait to help you effectively turn the page for the amazingness of what’s to come.
Happy first (unofficial) day of Fall.
Besos xx Jenny

Beyond Mom is a platform that creates community amongst women and mothers. While it’s easy to lose ourselves once baby arrives and get lost in this life-changing new role, Randi Zinn, founder, emphasizes paying attention to ourselves and embracing individual sensibilities outside of motherhood, whether it be as entrepreneurs, business women, creators, thinkers, friends and more. Through special events, podcasts, retreats, interviews, and speaking engagements, Randi’s initiatives bring us back to who we are at our core. Life doesn’t stop once we have children, and there is so much more beyond!
Randi recently gave birth to her second baby, Zarah, and called upon me for a Postnatal Closet Cleanse to detox and rebuild a new post-pregnancy wardrobe. “True to her own brand’s philosophy, going “beyond mom”, means paying attention to emotional health and well-being, and this includes how we show up. Even though physical change continues months post birth, we shouldn’t neglect day-to-day personal style.” Take a peek at the rest of my write-up of her cleanse over on Beyond Mom, plus a one-on-one interview of Randi’s take on personal style and how that fits into her life as mama of two.
Full piece over here.
I am in a constant state of cleansing my closet, especially now with Vida. Aside from limited space in our apartment, I don’t have energy for clutter or excess. Things must be simple and organized. I can’t wake up each day, sifting through the whole of my wardrobe to find an outfit that makes sense. I don’t have that kind of disposable time anymore. And I assume some of you (whether a mama or not) don’t either. We americans consume too much (guilty!). Culturally speaking, we have been programmed to believe that more equals better, and nothing is ever enough. Consumerism (and capitalism) at it’s finest. But what about our environmental (and social) responsibility to create less stuff? Do you know that there is a ‘garbage island’ in the middle of the Pacific that experts believe is twice the size of Texas? Watch the documentary Plastic Paradise if you don’t believe me. The fashion industry is one of the biggest offenders which a gal I follow on instagram reminded me of, so while I try to personally impact change (work in progress over here), I share this philosophy with my clients too: to make wiser purchases, buy less, invest in pieces with longevity and be responsbile with which brands we get behind. It’s hard to give up some of the fast fashion brands I’ve been attached to for so long. But I’m trying, and taking the appropriate steps to clean up this world for Vida and the generations that follow. Who’s with me?
That all said, the Fall/Winter season is basically here, and just like we typically do in Spring, cleansing is key. So let me help you get your closet ready with a Closet Cleanse (details here!) to detox the excess, create a new baseline and offer up suggestions on where to donate/consign so someone else can enjoy your worn clothes so they don’t wind up in some floating garbage pile in the middle of our ocean. Let’s work together on making smarter purchases now and for the future. Hit me up at email@example.com to schedule your session. I can’t wait to hear from you. xx
Hi there! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted, but I chalk it up to a few very busy weeks which in my opinion is a good problem to have. No complaints here. April and May were FULL of Shopping Trips and Closet Cleanses and June is turning out to be another busy month of prepping! Spring is in full bloom from coast to coast, and all my clients are getting their wardrobe ready for the new season(s). With that said, one of my clients, founder of the female centric, lifestyle website Betches did a write-up on her Closet Cleanse experience, working through her wardrobe in its entirity with me by her side. While a big focus of mine has been on the pre/post natal period, my client is a twenty-something young entrepreneur on the rise who equally wants to get her personal style situated while moving into her next life phase. While she isn’t transitioning in or out of motherhood, we are constantly evolving at every stage. Taking a deep dive to ensure our inner and outer self is aligned is a critical checkpoint for growth. Head over to Betches for the full piece.
Hi there and happy Friday! Hoping you all have something amazing planned for the weekend ahead. This fall has been gorgeous, and I’m enjoying this beautiful brisk weather. We are staying local, but looking forward to quality time with family and friends. I am cherishing these weekend days now more than ever!
This week came and went in a flash. I was planning on publishing a post on postpartum styling tips, but unfortunately was not able to get one together. My weekly to-do list seems to only partially get done these days, and this was one of the casualties. I do however intend to still cover the topic. So stay tuned. That said, I did send out an email blast to my clients announcing that I’ll be back to scheduling personal styling clients again starting November 6th! Yeah!
While the past 3 months have been nothing short of amazing, I’m super excited to connect with those who I have worked with before, and look forward to all who have expressed interest while I was out. While personally going through a major transformation over the past year, I have many new insights to share as I help you get Closet Cleansed, Style Coached and equipped with a New Wardrobe that not only supports your individual lifestyle, but honors your style from the inside out! Head on over to my services page for details.
As of Friday, November 6th, I’ll be seeing clients on both Tuesday’s and Friday’s. While my schedule will be limited, be sure to reach out as soon as possible. If you’re interested in making an appointment, please message me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you on the calendar. I intend to open up my schedule in early 2016 to include additional week days, but for now I’ll be working on a part-time basis only. So hop to it, and let’s get started! As always, feel free to follow me here, on Facebook and Instagram, where I’ve shared much of my journey, along with tips and inspiration on style from the inside out!
I look forward to our continued work together, and can’t wait to hear from all of you!
Also, if you’d like to be put on my email list, please reach out directly at email@example.com with your information.
Warmest weekend wishes! xx
