The Monday Blues
Back when I worked in corporate merchandising, my Monday Blues would start around 6pm on Sunday. That’s when I would open the weekend selling reports and instantly what next day’s vibes were going to be in the office.
One of the ways I channeled that nervous energy was by outfit-prepping. Think of it as meal-prepping for your closet instead of your fridge.
I would look at my calendar and see what big meetings I had, with whom I would be interacting and where I would be going. I would ask myself how I wanted to feel and be perceived for every event. I then determined my outfits accordingly.
Sometimes if I had an especially busy week, I would even put post-its on the hanger so I could just grab and go. This is a habit I still practice to this day, per this pic is from my own closet.
While planning my outfits didn’t ensure that my Monday was going to always be stellar, it did help me start the work week with one thing under control: my image. This 30 minute practice helped me feel prepared and confident going into the work week.
As I mention in my feature in Black Enterprise, if you’re not willing to invest the time into your wardrobe and yourself, how can you expect a boss or business partner to invest in you and your career or business? #ShamelessPlug
