It’s been many years since I first posted about my trusty outfit list. Much has stayed the same over time. I still spend a big chunk of time – three or four hours – every couple of months going through my closet and assembling outfits. Shoes, tights, bottom, top, and some larger accessories if I can think of them at the time. And I still feel that this practice helps me to utilize, appreciate, and be more creative with the contents of my wardrobe. My visual style journal has more or less been replaced by my Pinterest account, where I add visually inspired outfits to my various boards.

Reader Kantz dropped this one into the suggestion box:
I was wondering if you could talk about the getting ready in the morning routine. This year I have the resolution to always look my best every day but so far I have found that it takes time!!! Any ideas on how to achieve this?
When I worked in an office, I allowed a fairly small window of time for morning prep, mostly because I aimed to arrive at my office by 7:30 a.m. Back then, HM and I both rose at 5:50 a.m. and since he showered first, I ended up with approximately 45 minutes in which to shower, dress, and primp. Here’s how I crammed all of that into a relatively small amount of time.
