Shed What No Longer Serves

January 2, 2024

Just like a snake sheds its skin, so too can we shake off all that no longer serves us.

2023 has transitioned into 2024 and with the changing of years, the energy has shifted. The energy is lighter (Mercury is finally out of retrograde) and for those of us Capricorns, Pluto’s 15-year transit through our house is finally coming to a close on January 22nd (talk about a major birthday gift).

What People Are Saying About The Dress Code

The Dress Code is a MUST HAVE for all the do’s and don’ts, tips and tricks of a professional wardrobe! Great perspective. I found this E-book very helpful personally and as a stylist at a Luxury Retailer in regards to creating new, professional looks for new and current clients. Highly recommend!

I think every young professional woman should review this content.

The talking points on why quality investment pieces will serve the wardrobe better than cheaper on trend items made me feel a lot more confident in the investments I had already started making in my attire.  Even more so, the affirmation that if you are wondering if something is borderline for the office then it is not appropriate!  That single statement fuels my decisions in creating my look four days a week while I play catch up on investment pieces.



The Dress Code emphasizes the importance of women dressing appropriately in the professional world and really spells out exactly how to do it.

Kelsey’s user-friendly guide really walks you through how to put together a work-appropriate wardrobe that can work in a variety of workplace settings and how to maximize each item in your collection. I think so many people could benefit from this guide and from Kelsey’s advice – whether they are just starting in the corporate world out of college, or as a refresher course.

Everyone’s look needs a little refresh now and then, so I’m thrilled to share The Consultant’s Closet restyled website! 
Building your corporate style can be daunting, especially when you’re trying to balance style, professionalism, and affordability. It took me two days of hardcore searching to find the right suit for my first career interviews as my college days came to a close, and I’ve been on a mission to help others avoid that headache ever since.
After a decade and a half of building a versatile and professional wardrobe, tailored to the management consulting industry, my goal is for The Consultant’s Closet to become your foundational source for guidance, shopping and inspiration to fuel a well suited and professional wardrobe. 
Head over to The Consultants Closet | Wardrobe Guidance for the Consultant’s Lifestyle and let us know what you think!

Building a capsule wardrobe for work (especially a stylish one) can take time, effort, and money.
Maybe you’re just starting out, or maybe you’re already swamped, running from meeting to meeting and it’s one of those things that just keeps getting pushed down the priority list.
It can seem overwhelming, but the good news is, you can start with the basics. The basics are the foundation of any badass wardrobe.
A few simple, quality pieces can create a wardrobe that will have you looking chic and polished for every event. If you’re new to the concept, essentially, a capsule wardrobe is a collection of pieces that are designed to work together effortlessly.
Neutral Blouse
Universal Suit
Classic Heels
Functional Accessories
I gravitated toward this suit because of its versatility - a blazer, dress (with sleeves), and a skirt. It can be combined in endless ways with other pieces, allowing me to create a range of fresh looks. I found this little gem during a Spring shopping trip to Saks and it has been a total game-changer. My blouse is a classic sheath top that has been a staple in my wardrobe for ages - another piece that can be seamlessly added to almost any outfit. Your wardrobe doesn’t have to be flashy or vast to work for you, there’s beauty in simplicity and attention to detail.

Pleasantly Uneventful Travel ✈️🧳
While delays are the norm, I’ve spent more time in sky clubs than I care to count, and I once bought the @Marriott bed set so I’d always feel at home…
I am so thankful travel has taken quite a hiatus over the last few years. Spending time not living out of a suitcase, where I can make plans during the week is such a gift. I used to be in 2-4 cities a week most weeks of the year. And I did that for years giving up so much in the process.
While travel looks a bit different these days, I’m still grateful when it’s pleasantly uneventful!
Delays and missed connections are the norm - but how do you handle the even tougher hurdles?
Like having a plane land in the wrong city or touch down in the middle of the night.
A stalker at an airport.
Or be sexually harassed by a flight attendant.
Or even be thrown up on...
Yes, all of those things and so much more are real travel nightmares of mine from my past life as a road warrior. 
In the latest episodes of @TheConsultantsCounsel Podcast, I share my tried and true tips and tricks on making travel efficient and comfortable - especially if it's for work.
From setting up rewards accounts to what to wear for the most comfortable travel experience, to TSA PreCheck and Global Entry,  Whether you're a frequent traveler or just starting out, my new episodes can help make your trip pleasantly uneventful.
