Hand Out a Kindness Card

“The first time I met my friend Schuyler, he handed me a business card that said, “You are awesome.” I thought it was cute, if not a little strange, but he continued to make these little cards, which he calls Kindness Cards, and give them to friends, strangers, pretty much anyone he met. They have encouraging and uplifting affirmations like “You are a gift to those you love” or “Your smile is radiant.” He ended up creating an organization called Connection Through Compassion and sends blank kindness cards all over the world. I love the way he has shown that such a small gesture can brighten up someone’s day and make a big difference. Years later, it has come to pass that strangers give him Kindness Cards, not realizing that he is the guy who started it all!”

Holly P. 

Be Kind Pro Tip #1: Send a text to a friend or a family member. It takes hardly any time and even the simplest of messages lets them know you’re thinking of them. Or, better yet, send out a handwritten card. Receiving an unexpected card in the mail is sure to put a smile on anyone’s face.

Share a Sweet Surprise

“One of my favorite ways to be kind is to pay for the Starbucks order of whoever is in line behind you. It’s especially fun in the drive-through because people don’t know it’s coming until you get up to the window! It’s a fun way to spread a little cheer and would recommend it to anyone looking spread some kindness this World Kindness Day.”

Lindsey T.

Be Kind Pro Tip #2: Treat someone to a cup of coffee. Surprise a friend or a coworker with a gift card to their favorite coffee shop or pay for the person behind you in line as you pick up your morning cup of joe.

Pay it Forward

“My mom, sister and I were in the Starbucks drive-through on our way to visit my grandma in the hospital. We were feeling pretty down, but when we got to the window, we found out the car in front of us has paid for our order! We said we wanted to pay it forward and the employee told us we were the 5th car to keep it going. It was such a difficult day and that small act of kindness made such a huge impact! The car behind us even honked and waved.”

Lindsay U.

Be Kind Pro Tip #3: Give a compliment to a coworker or a friend—or a stranger! You never know how much of an impact you could make by simply complimenting their outfit, sharing your favorite thing about them, or noticing their hard work.

 

Stand Up for a Stranger

“I noticed a woman online who was receiving a lot of bullying from complete strangers. I didn’t know her, but I sent her a private message to remind her to stay strong. Her positive outlook was so important for other women out there! She replied saying how thoughtful and encouraging it was in space that becoming cluttered with negativity. We became Instagram friends and it’s great to see her pop up on my feed as a friendly reminder that taking a few minutes to reach out made a lasting impact.”

Random Act of Kindness: Go slightly outside of your comfort zone once a day to try and make someone around you smile. Hold the door for someone, offer to help carry something, or leave an encouraging post-it note in a random spot.

Support & Encourage

“My fellow mom girlfriends and I went out to brunch to have a nice morning catching up over coffee. To our surprise, the gentleman sitting next to us paid for our breakfast! Afterward, he just asked that we pay it forward when the opportunity arises. It left us feeling in awe and extremely grateful. Random acts of kindness make the BIGGEST impact. You never know whose day you will make brighter because you went out of your way to be kind.”

Danielle K.

Be Kind Pro Tip #4: Make kindness a choice and bring it to the forefront of everything that you do. Give up your seat when others are standing, let somebody merge on the busy highway, or make a donation. Be kind daily and it will begin to feel natural and bring you a sense of peace.

We’ve reached the end of Daylight saving time (see ya later, sunlight) but that doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to go dark, too! Sure, we may have gained an hour of sunlight in the morning, but the hour we lose in the evening seems to make a big impact. With the help of colorful clothes and cheerful tips, you’ll be able to survive the transition and make the most of the shorter days.

colorful clothes: daylight savings

Soak Up the Sun

It’s easy to reach for dark and muted colors for all of your fall and winter outfits. Instead of a neutral, reach for a bright yellow. Studies show that the color brings warmth, cheerfulness, and increased energy (so much for mellow yellow).

Pro Tip: Go for a walk in the morning. Light has a powerful impact on our mood and energy level. Taking the time to (literally) soak up the rays of sunshine will do wonders for your day ahead. Grab your cup of joe and take a stroll around the block to wake up more naturally and enjoy some vitamin D.

Stick to the Schedule

Don’t be afraid to build an outfit around bold accessories and bright florals. The gorgeous pattern will help to reduce stress and increase your creativity. This will be especially helpful when you’re feeling groggy and bogged down by adjusting to the time change.

Pro Tip: Stick to your schedule. With gaining an hour, it can be tempting to stay up late, sleep in, or take an extra-long midafternoon nap. But keeping to your routine is essential for a smooth transition. If you normally go to bed at 9 and get up at 6, continue to do that so you get a good night’s rest.

Relax, Don’t Do It

Wearing white (and yes, it’s totally acceptable after Labor Day) will help you to attract positive energy and exude a sense of peacefulness. Who knew? Layering it over a plaid button-up will make your outfit seasonal and will leave you feeling warm and cozy even during the cold and dark evenings.

Pro Tip: We all know the golden rule: do NOT go on our phones while we are laying in bed. This is even more of an important rule to follow during the time change. According to prevention.com, our brains can’t tell the difference between the light coming off your phone or the sun and you’ll wind up staying up all night. Take 2-3 hours (if possible) before bed to unwind and swap your phone for a book or evening meditation.

What comes to mind when you think of fall? For many, fall means football. People look forward to the start of the season all year round.  Whether you’re a super-fan or someone who simply enjoys the spirited atmosphere, we’ve got 3 fashion-forward game day outfits that will help you totally nail your sideline style.

game day: moto jacket

The Good Old Traditional Tailgate

We would be lying if we didn’t say our favorite part of game day is the tailgate. The food, friends, and super fun atmosphere make it a highlight every time. The only downside? The weather. It can get quite chilly as the season goes on and that can make it tricky to figure out what to wear. To make sure you’re more focused on the game and less on the cold temps, layer a hoodie underneath a warm moto jacket and top your look off with a scarf.

 

game day: flannel and sherpa

#1 Fan in the Stands

For some, game day means getting your little one ready to hit the field. Between prepping snacks for the team and trying to keep uniforms clean, there’s no time to worry about what you’ll wear to your kiddo’s game. To make it easy, opt for a classic piece like a button-up flannel and pair it with an on-trend sherpa jacket. You’ll feel super cozy as you cheer from the sidelines!

 

game day: camo cardigan and baseball tee

Cheering From the Couch

Whether you’re hosting a party for the big game or keeping things low-key, cheering on your team from the comfort of your home might arguably be the best way to go. You get to enjoy all of the snacks without spending a fortune at the stadium. Not to mention, there’s no need to fully bundle up when you get to stay indoors. Choose a cozy cardigan layered over a long-sleeve tee and finish your ensemble with relaxed denim. On day three of dry shampoo? Relatable. Throw on a baseball cap for a fully sporty look.

Whether you were ready or not, fall started on September 23rd (somebody please tell us how summer is already over). Some have been counting down the days to bust out the pumpkins and spooky decor while others have been dreading the cooler temps and shorter days. Whichever side of the fence you fall on, there’s no denying that fall brings a bounty of cute clothes and cozy sweaters to choose from. From small details to bold patterns, we’ve narrowed down the list of our can’t-live-without fall sweaters of the season.

fall sweaters: tie front sweater

Dainty Details

An easy way to switch up your typical sweater routine is to take a classic piece and add a trendy element like a tie-front detail. The tiny update totally transforms a simple sweater. Wear it to the office with elevated accessories or keep it casual with denim on the weekends.

 

fall sweaters: ruffle sleeve sweater

Statement Sleeves

While the calendar might officially say it’s fall, depending on where you live, the weather may not agree. A short-sleeved sweater enhanced with a ruffle makes for a great transition piece. You can throw it on with jeans and booties for a totally autumnal look without fighting the temps.

 

fall sweaters: animal print sweater

Neutral Animal Prints

One of the biggest trends of summer won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Animal print—whether it’s leopard or snakeskin—is transitioning over from sundresses to sweaters and we’re a big fan. The toned-down hues in this sweater make it both professional and polished.

 

fall sweaters: cardigans

Draped Front Cardigans

There’s nothing better than finding a cozy layer that you can throw on any day of the week. The long length, crazy soft fabric, and cascading draped front make this cardigan an irresistible piece. Cozy up in it for movie night or keep it at your desk for a go-to office layer.

 

fall sweaters: striped sweater

Swoon-worthy Stripes

Set aside your solid pieces and opt for a striped sweater. Stripes paired with a rust hue is a fail-proof fall combo. We especially love the cozy knit fabric and wide ribbed bands for a little extra texture. With its undeniable versatility, you’ll be able to style it with whatever floats your boat.

New seasons allow the opportunity to welcome change and new experiences. One of the things we most look forward to is trying the emerging trends and latest styles (pretty fitting, huh?). We’ve already started to freshen up our street style and we’re equally excited to add new pieces to our workout wardrobe. We got a chance to chat with Susan, our Merchandising Manager for the fitness category, to talk about her favorite fitness trends for fall.

fitness trends: tie dye

Tie-Dye

“The tie-dye trend came back strong and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon! I know this soft and cozy pullover will be the style I reach for over and over this fall…and well into spring!”

Whether you’re lounging on the weekend or layering after a workout, this vintage-inspired tie-dye pullover is a must-have piece. It comes in a few different colors so you go bold with a bright red or low-key with a cool neutral. Either way, you’ll feel, like, totally groovy wearing it.

 

fitness trends: strappy sports bra

Strappy Sports Bras

I love neutral pieces with a twist! They’ve become my core go-to’s.”

Navy is a great alternative to black if you’re looking for a subtle switch-up to your fitness wardrobe. This sports bra features woven straps for a modern take on a classic racerback design. Essentially, it hits the trifecta of fitness gear: function, support, and 100% show-stopping.

 

fitness trends: soft leggings

Colored Leggings

“I never want to take these off. Not only are they soft, but they easily take me from studio to street.” 

A cooler season doesn’t mean you have to make the immediate transition to darker colors. These berry, buttery-soft leggings are right on trend for the fall 2019 color story. With their gorgeous hue and an amazing amount of comfort, you’ll find every reason to incorporate them into your day-to-day.

 

fitness trends: camo hoodie

Camouflage Print

“Camo should be in everyone’s wardrobe—both in performance & athleisure styles.”

This camo hoodie is a no-brainer no matter if you want to freshen up your fitness wardrobe or street style. It’s a great layering piece to take you to and from the gym, but it also looks amazing with jeans and a tee. There’s nothing better than a piece that works for more than one aspect of your life!

 

fitness trends: animal print

Hey, we get it. Shopping isn’t for everyone. It’s inconvenient (hello, overcrowded malls), time-consuming, and can be quite overwhelming—like, try everything on and run away empty-handed, overwhelming. Lucky for you, Wantable has a team of super talented personal stylists (if we do say so ourselves) who are here to make shopping easy, exciting and enjoyable. Not sure it’s your thing? Here are the 5 signs you *might* need a personal stylist.

1. You Don’t Have Time (or the Desire) to Shop:

By the time you drive to a shopping center, go on a stakeout for parking, browse through hundreds of products, and try everything on, shopping can turn into an hours-long endeavor. Whew, it’s exhausting just thinking about it. So it’s easy to see why one of the main reasons people make the switch to personal styling is convenience. Wantable sends Edits straight to your door meaning you get to try everything on in the comfort of your own home. No more scary salespeople or overwhelming crowds.

2. Your Clothes Don’t Fit Quite Right

Nobody wants to be jumping into their jeans (getting dressed should not be an exercise) or constantly adjusting their clothing throughout the day. Your clothes should feel comfortable all day long and help you to feel your absolute best. Our stylists are fit experts and will make sure the pieces in your Edit are fuss-free and fit you to a T. You’ll be shocked that someone you’ve never met in person can nail the right sizes. You’ll never have to tug, pull, or shimmy again. Trust us, it’s a wonderful feeling.

3. You’re Tired of Looking Like Everyone Else in Town

We’ve all been there. You’re going about your daily routine when you run into an outfit twin. Dressed head-to-toe in almost the exact same outfit. Ugh—the worst. It can be hard to stand out if you and everyone else in town are heading to the same stores. With your very own personal stylist, you’ll receive pieces exclusive to Wantable along with other coveted brands to help you define your unique style. So you can say goodbye to #twinning and say hello to a totally personalized wardrobe.

4. You’ve Realized You’re Wearing the Same Clothes Over & Over

Imagine getting dressed in the morning. Does it look at little something like trying on 7 different outfits only to end up wearing your usual go-to’s? Don’t get us wrong—we love having a few fail-proof options in our closets. But if you’re struggling to get creative or step out of your comfort zone, our personal stylists can help you get there. With each Edit, your stylist provides outfit inspiration along with a few pieces you may have never thought to try on your own (but will quickly fall in love with).

Say cheese—it’s family photo season! You’ve found your photographer, picked the perfect location, and now it’s time to decide what you and the rest of the fam will wear. Gone are the days of matchy-matchy outfits (a.k.a blue jeans and a white tee—boring) and overly-posed family photos. Nowadays, it’s all about candid captures, a complementary color palette and picking the perfect piece to build a cohesive look. We’re here with failproof outfit ideas to help you nail your camera-ready style.

family photos: plaid

The Palette

Blues, deep reds, creams, and chambray.

The Piece

Go for a button-up plaid. Plaid is a great way to incorporate a few different colors for the rest of the family to work with when selecting their outfits. Layer it under a utility jacket and pair it with jeans and finish your look with a boot. Want to dress it up a bit? Pair it with a skirt and tuck it in or tie it in a knot at the front.

The Pro-Tip

Instead of a small plaid print, opt for a large scale plaid. Larger prints and patterns pick up much better on camera! Also, don’t be afraid to get playful and mix and match patterns within the family. Plaid with polka-dots? Yes, please. Stripes with florals? You got it.

 

family photos: camo cardigan

The Palette

Olive green, charcoal, light grey, black, white, and forest green.

The Piece

Camo continues to be a trend through the Fall 2019 season, so this cardigan is a great choice to make a neutral color palette look modern and fresh. Keep the rest of your look classic and pair it with a simple tee and black denim. If the weather allows, you can make your look even cozier with a scarf or a beanie.

The Pro-Tip

You’re investing time and money into making these photos happen (and maybe even a bit of your sanity). It’s likely that they will be hanging up in your home for a long time. Keeping the number of trendy pieces to a minimum in your family photos will ensure they’ll remain timeless.

 

family photos: burnt colors

The Palette

Burnt orange, beige, cream, and tan.

The Piece

An easy way to make for eye-catching photos is choosing a statement color to focus on when building your ensemble. These colorful skinnies in a trendy burnt hue will make the rest of your outfit a breeze. Pair them with a neutral sweater or pick a print including the same color to really pull everything together.

The Pro-Tip

As odd as it may sound, think about how your home is decorated. You want these photos to be a part of your decorations as much as everything else. If you’re opting for a standout color in your family photos, think about how will it look with the rest of your home decor.
