Your Dream Life

Tori J. Hernendez
Monthly Round-Up

This month, I've been focusing on making dreams come true.
 

I realized -- with a start -- at the beginning of this month that I am already living my dream. Wow! 

It doesn't mean that life isn't messy.  Things go wrong.  Mistakes get made.  And we still have lots of goals to achieve.

As Walt Disney said, "If you can dream it, you can do it."
 

How can I help make your dreams come true?

The September Look.  For many of us, the only outfit we've ever really spent lots of time and energy thinking about is our wedding dress.

In an era when we marry solely for love and commitment, a wedding can be the most beautiful day.

Which is why I was so happy and honored when Lover.ly asked me to join their "Dream Day Style Challenge."

Finding Your Rhythm: Breaking Your Blocks to StyleOne of the most common blocks to style I hear is maintenance (followed by a groan).  

The explanation?  "I don't have enough .... in my life for..."  You know that actually translates to:  "I don't think it's important." 

But, what do my clients want most?  To look polished.  


Therein lies the rub.

Finding Your Rhythm: Breaking Your Blocks to Style

organized, family, schedule, charging station, chore chart, postive rules
Family Command Center
One of the best things about having an autism-spectrum child for me has been affirming the value of a regular schedule.  I've always enjoyed getting into a rhythm and found a structured life to be the easiest. 

Apple doesn't fall very far from the tree, does it?

For many people, including many of my loved ones, schedules and structures themselves create stress.  I'm sure I'll never live down the schedule I handed out at my wedding.  I thought it was helpful; it seems that others did not!

Finding Joy in the Schedule.  So how to find the joy in a regular schedule?

Think of it as freeing your day for more fun!

Literally polished!
Similarly, one of the most common blocks to style I hear is maintenance (followed by a groan).

The explanation?  "I don't have enough time/money/space in my life for...(fill in the blank:  shopping, eyebrow waxing, facials, make-up..."

You know that means, "I don't think it's important," don't you?

But, what do my clients want most?  To look polished.

Therein lies the rub.

There is a calmness and mastery to be found in routine practices.

The key to finding joy in the routine?  Realize the purpose and create rhythms that work.

Style Rituals.  I'll give you an example.  When I got back from summer holidays, my hair was just not cooperating.  You've had those days, right?

I didn't get upset because it's a sign I'm going to see my stylist soon.  How did I know that?  Because I always book my next appointment as I'm checking out from my current one.

So the bad hair days show up and I know I'm going to see my stylist soon.  

Small shift, huge yield.


Add Motivation.  I added an extra motivation to scheduling my hair cuts so I have even more to look forward to than the joy of pretty hair.

Now, I couple my haircuts with a solo day in Amsterdam.  Score!

I love being on my own schedule, free to follow my own agenda.  I take myself out to lunch and people watch, getting inspired by current street style.  It's refreshing and soul-charging.

Afterwards, I walk through my favorite stores.  I learn what is available, touch and feel the fabrics and see who has what and at which price point.  This allows me laser-focus when I'm out shopping with clients.

Small shift, huge yield.

As the wonderful Ursula K LeGuin said, "One must work with time, not against it."

What small shift can you make today to support your style?  What yield do you desire?

ARE YOU READY TO BREAK THROUGH YOUR BLOCKS TO STYLE?  Reserve your seat for the "Style Starts Now" Workshop in The Hague or Park Slope today!  Seating is limited to 10 participants.

DailyOutfit's September Look

For many of us, the only outfit we've ever really spent lots of time and energy thinking about is our wedding dress.

In an era when we marry solely for love and commitment, a wedding can be the most beautiful day of all.

Which is why I was so happy and honored when Lover.ly asked me to join their "Dream Day Style Challenge."

City Wedding

Inspired by the romantic canals of Amsterdam, this look works in any sophisticated setting for a romantic and elegant day.

Lover.ly such a fun site -- like Pinterest meets theknot.com.
 I love how digital media is making everything in our lives easier -- so we can focus on what's really important.



Dreams Beyond Your Wedding.  Of course, our dreams no longer culminate in our wedding day.  Events like your first board presentation, association award, or even a panel discussion deserve the same sense of preparation and celebration we accord our weddings, for each has its import for furthering our ambitions.

When you allow yourself the space and time to anticipate and prepare for something special from the inside out, it deepens your experience of the event.  Creating the dream outfit for that upcoming milestone is one way to make sure your dreams come true.  Yes, ladies -- the old adage is true (it's called embodied cognition) clothes do make the man -- and the woman!

What important event do you have coming up?  How can you prep yourself so that you present the best and most authentic version of you?

Let's make your dreams come true!

Live Your Dream

Last week, I realized I am living my dream.  Seriously!  Living. My. Dream.

It doesn't mean that life isn't messy.  Things go wrong.  Mistakes get made.  And we still have lots of goals to achieve.

But, when I pause and consider where we are, what we're doing and how we're doing it, this is the dream.  And it's my life!

Wow.

The truth is, we have been living our dream for a long time.  But, the challenges of life have distracted us from this fact.  And when the challenges of life are large, it can be very hard to remember how lucky we are.

Kacey K Loved Ring - GoldFor within these dreams comes work.  Marriage, children, stability or freedom, your vocation -- whatever your dream is -- none of these necessarily comes free and easy.  And even if it does, it takes effort and courage to keep them strong and growing.

It's so easy to focus on the negative.  But, when I shift my focus to appreciate even the tiniest positives in my day, I gain the strength to keep sailing.

Every day, I literally arm myself with reminders.  My love bracelet becomes an amulet.  My Chanel No. 5 is a magical potion.  My daily outfit is imbued with meaning -- not only for me, but also for the outside world -- to call in my desires and make my dreams come true.

It works for me and has worked for my clients.  They've found love, careers and happiness by making a conscious decision to define what makes them amazing and claim their dreams, then translate that heady mix into a personal style they can inhabit with ease. 

It is my dream is to help YOU in the same way.  Why not say yes?

Let's make your dreams come true -- today!
