One of the reasons I see women struggle with their style is
because they don’t feel like they have their own spin.

How to get your own spin on style
- Get clear on your vision. This is true in
business and style. A vision will help you cull through the
mass amounts of stuff out there and help you curate a style you
love. Get clear on what’s going to make you feel up-levelled and
then do your pinning, image searches, etc.
- Ask for help. I’m a big advocate for investing
in yourself to get you the results you’re after faster. Paying a
professional, for anything, style, coaching, etc. will help you
save time, money, frustration, body-image heart break, etc – and
get you on a path you feel better about so much easier and with
more ease. That’s why I love my personal style program so much
because I help the students a long the way with their style. I’m
there helping you tweak things on your own terms, answering your
questions and providing guidance when you need it. I did the same
thing with myself! I invested in my style way back and I still
invest in myself with coaches to help guide me along a path that
feels good and to get me to wear I’m going faster.
- Ask what would feel better. This may seem
silly, but so many people say, “I like what I’m doing, but I feel
like it’s missing something” – okay, so what do you feel it’s
missing? Take some time and get honest with yourself. Jewellery?
Bold lip? What would you rather see? That will create so much more
clarity for you and help move the needle in a direction that feels
- Make it your own with small tweaks.
Re-creating looks on Pinterest are all good so long as the image
speaks to your vision and what you love about a style you want for
yourself. Most people try and re-create images using the exact
colour palette or pieces in their closet. Instead, ask what you
like about the image and see what you have in your closet based on
that. If an image has dainty jewellery in it, but you’re more of a
bold jewellery kind of gal, rock those pieces! Is doesn’t have to
be the same. If you try and only re-create what you see, you’ll
forever feel like you aren’t creating an authentic spin on it that
lifts you up and speaks to you.
