what it means to be
a surrendered stylist
the surrendered stylist
what to know
This archetype represents you as you currently relate to your Core Style. During our lifetime we all will likely take on each one of the six stylist archetypes. As we grow and evolve as individuals, it only makes sense that our style - how we visually communicate who we are - will grow and evolve as well. And it’s in these transitions and evolutions that we tend to shift archetypes.
So, keep this in mind: Where you are now is not necessarily where you’ll always be. And you, my friend, are the one who has the power to shift your archetype if you wish to do so. But first let’s learn a little bit more about where you are now.
as a surrendered stylist you…
» Have tried to uncover your style without much luck in the past or
» Have a lot on your plate right now and finding the time and capacity to devote to curating a style you love isn’t your priority
» Truly do value style and aesthetics even if you aren’t giving it the attention you give to other things or aren’t showing up as stylishly as you’d like to for yourself right now
keep in mind
» You don’t have to do everything all at once. Creating a style you love is about gaining clarity on who you are and then making a lot of little decisions and choices about how you’re going to visually communicate that. Some people choose to do it all at once. But doing it piece by piece is just as effective.
» How you show up in the world is also how you show up for yourself. Often, as women, we prioritize everyone over ourselves. We’re giving and kind and compassionate. And those are great qualities. But we want to use them in equal measure toward ourselves. And feeling good in your skin, showing up authentically, having that sense of power that comes from being in alignment with yourself is an endeavor worth putting some time toward - even if it’s just a few minutes a day.
where to focus
your focus area: clarity of self + small evolutions in your core style
As a surrendered stylist it’s time to devote a little time to yourself and creating a Core Style that truly allows you to show up in the world.
We aren’t going to do it all right now. This isn’t going to be one of those Oprah makeover shows where everything happens in a day. And that’s fine. In fact, that’s perfect. Because taking it bit by bit is going to make it work for you. And if it works for you it will stick!
So, first let’s make sure you have clarity on who you are, what you value, and what you want to communicate with your style. Get this part down to a few key ideas, words, or phrases so it’s simple and easy for you to work with. Once you have that clarity, pick one area of your style. Maybe it’s your hair or your work wardrobe or one room of your house. Then take one small step at a time - one nugget of change - that moves you closer to having a style that aligns with you. It can be as simple as changing a lamp or getting rid of worn out clothing. Then take the next step. Then the next. Pretty soon those little nuggets of change will all add up!
You now have clarity on your Core Style archetype. You’ve also have insight on where to put your focus.
Now it’s time to get started and take some action … because a parked car never moves and simply thinking about your true Core Style isn’t going to make it appear for you!
