Personal Style

Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak. —Rachel Zoe

In preparation for Saturday’s TDJ Virtual Brunch with a Side of TranquiliT, I’ll be sharing tips related to the Style Tenet. This week’s podcast ties into that topic, too, if we consider how our personal brand is the sum of what we do, how we do it, and why.

When watching Hamilton this weekend, the idea of legacy and how we use it kept popping into my head. Again, I see personal brand as our style. And our form of expression. And our legacy.

Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon, famously said, “Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room.”

How would you describe your personal brand? Think of it as your “secret sauce.” You know, that thing that makes you YOU!

Here are a few ways to help craft it, in no particular order:

1. Build a platform through your online and/or community presence. This is your own personal stage that you share with the world.

2. Highlight your unique strengths, interests, and quirks (hello, Pigs & Pugs).

3. Share yourself through teaching, consulting, writing, and speaking.

4. Consider what success will look like for you in 1, 5, 10 years.

5. Be consistent in your messaging while also giving yourself grace as you evolve and grow.

6. Create community by hosting in-person and online meetups, creating a book club or movie club, setting up an anti-racist group—anything that will bring like-hearted people together.

7. Evoke emotion and create an experience. For example, Pigs & Pugs shares the stories of the animals who receive our micro-grants and at my former yoga studio, we served tea and cookies at the end of each class.

Consider your own personal brand and style. How would you describe it? How would you like it to be described? Here’s a previous signature style post you may enjoy.

Oh, and another blog post on daily dress-up plus these Tranquility du Jour style podcasts: #289, #310, #338, #351, #366, and #414. Bisous. x

Daily Dress-Up Made Easy

Over the next two weeks we’re exploring the eight daily Tranquility Tools on Facebook and Instagram, so I wanted to give insight into the second one, daily dress-up.

This Washington Post article came out at the start of quarantine and describes how our clothes tell a story. Robin Givhan writes, “Fashion is a form of communication that is both intimate and aloof. Without ever uttering a word, you stand behind your message because you are, in fact, wearing it. Clothing is an eloquent form of communication for the inarticulate.”

It may feel unnecessary to dress-up if you’re not seeing anyone and spend your days chasing after a wayward toddler or sitting in front of a computer job searching, but there’s something about getting out of those pajamas that signifies a start to the day.

Givhan noted, “. . . going through an entire day in loungewear, it is easy to lose yourself and your sense of purpose and focus. Our clothes create boundaries. They mark time.”

Many of us have lost our commute and need to don a blazer (or whatever may be typical in your line of work). Both denote the transition to a different identity—our professional hat. Now our days and roles may feel blurred. There’s no demarcation of “Off to work!” or “I’m home and ready for leisure,” so we have to create it on our own.

I’m not sure when I started wearing the 2in1 fitted top and capri leggings year-round (basically loungewear, don’t tell Givhan), but it’s been a few years and having this “uniform” has saved me countless hours pondering what to wear and what to pack. Oh the drama!

Using these two pieces as my base, I can create looks for a variety of activities—pig petting, monument viewing, yoga teaching, cafe sitting, pug walking, balleting, and note taking.

Add-ons include a blazer for a more professional vibe, the long sleeve wrap tunic for a comforting layer that swaddles my body, or I’ll slip a vintage skirt over the ensemble. Here are 21 looks.

While you may not feel inspired to dress up these days, I get it, and that’s where a uniform makes it easy peasy. I’ll see clients (virtually, of course), take a ballet class, handle things around the house, jump on a Zoom meeting, and sit fireside to binge Mrs. America—all without changing.

Sure I’ll add a neck scarf, red lips, and eye makeup for videos, but otherwise I’m all set. Every. Day.

What would make your dress-up easier during these times? What’s the story you’re telling even with no audience? Bisous. x

Face Masks by Mama Wilson

Considering the updated recommendation from the CDC to wear face masks in public, I asked Mom to make me a leopard-print one (shown in photo).

She’s also making damask ones and each comes with a muslin backing (shown below).

We’re offering these on TranquiliT in case you’re interested in a triple-layered, one-of-a-kind face mask that supports an Oklahoma seamstress and Pigs & Pugs Project.

Let’s stay safe (in style). Bisous. x

Over the Knee Socks Love

Each morning I reach for the same two pieces: 2in1 fitted TranquiliT top (I must have eight) and TranquiliT capri leggings (probably sixish of these).

My days consist of dog walking (one to two hours’ worth), a movement class (yoga, ballet, or barre), sitting with therapy clients, or working from home. To dress for such varied activities, I LIVE in my “uniform.”

DC weather has been nearly 70 some days and in the 20s others, so I add lots of layers to my uniform, as needed. Yet my base coat, so to speak, is only those two staples year-round.

For the warmer winter days, I’m donning over the knee socks to slip into pink clog sandals at the office. This turns a basic black ensemble designed for yoga class into a dressed up look with the addition of a thrifted vintage skirt (as shown above).

Considering we’re estimated to wear only 20% of what’s in our closet (whhhaaattt???) and our decision making gets fatigued as the day goes on, why not make the morning as smooth as possible?!

Think capsule wardrobe—those staples that will easily mix and match and dress up or down. Check out p. 84 in Year of Tranquility for a step-by-step guide on creating your own.

In the interim, maybe a pair of over the knee socks is just what you need to take that yoga outfit into a creative work environment?! Bisous. x

3 New Videos

Bonjour from Paris! Before I head to the airport, I wanted to share these three videos I recorded last week before leaving for the City of Light.

Tea with Kimberly: My Carry-On Must-Haves

See everything stuffed inside my Matt & Nat bag. It’s like a clown car where more keep popping out.

Meet the six new TranquiliT designs [starring Belle Starr the pug]

Sweet Belle looks on as I share the new TranquiliT fall collection, highlight the features, and reveal the fabrics.

A peek inside the Tranquility du Jour Daybook

The latest Daybook is filled with new (and formerly loved) features. Learn more about it in this brief video.

I hope these are useful and wish you a beautiful day ahead. Thanks for joining me on my Parisian adventures. Bisous. x

☕️ Bonjour from Paris

Over the past four days, I’ve . . . practiced flâneurie for 30 miles, spent two fun days with Tim’s cousin, browsed books at Shakespeare & Company, savored the views at Jardin de Luxembourg, ridden a carousel, visited a haunted house, taken a 3-hour sketching class, enjoyed an afternoon with friends, walked the 270 steps up to Sacre Coeur, toured the Palais Garnier, eaten lots of pizza sans cheese, sipped green juice and rose lattes at Wild & the Moon, consumed many pots of thé vert à la menthe, and listened to live jazz for SIX hours at 38Riv. ?

Paris is one BIG Artist Date filled with overwhelming sensory delights. Taking it all in with so much gratitude and have one full day to go. You’ll find a peek into the journey below and over on Instagram.

Sending so much love from the City of Light. x

P.S. Have you cast your vote yet for our France 2020 retreat?
