Put on the show pony first


I had a necklace I wanted to wear, it had stayed on my jewelry stand too long and today was the day. So, I got dressed and put on my necklace. I was so proud of myself until I realized the necklace didn’t go with my outfit. So I took it off, vowing I would wear it tomorrow. The next day the same thing happened and after a few days of this pattern repeating I realized my mistake – I needed to build the outfit around this necklace, not add the necklace at the end. That brings me to Show Pony Summer Series Method #7 Put on the Show Pony First

When you decide to wear an item such as earrings, shoes, necklace or flirty top, put it on first or if this isn’t possible (I’m looking at you, shoes) put it in plain sight as you get dressed. Then, as you put on a top that necklines clash with your earrings, you take off the top instead of the earrings. This may seem very obvious, but it’s very easy to get to the end of your outfit, put on the special item and decide on the outfit instead of the special item. We think ‘I tried, today’s not the day.’ We don’t want to try, we want to show our show ponies what life is like outside of the house. Thus, we need a strategy. The strategy is to choose your intention of wearing your special item over your intention of getting dressed quickly.

Now, another take on this method is to experiment with this item when you are not in a rush to get out the door. I know that when a timeline is breathing down your neck, the first thing that gets cut is your determination to wear your show pony. So, when you find yourself with nowhere to be, decide to play! Put on some fun music, put on the show pony and try on ALL the things in your closet. Those that it goes with and those that it doesn’t. You may be surprised at what you come up with. I’m serious, put on the special item and start pulling, mixing, matching and playing. There are no rules, except to find an outfit you can wear with this special item. Quick, before you take it all off and slip into your sweats, take a selfie or make a note. Then, when you go to use this item you’re already prepared with kick ass outfits!

Have you ever made the intention to wear your special item and then left the house in your old faithfuls? What item will you start with and build your outfit around?

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring
    writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but
    I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..

    Any tips? Thank you!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  4. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  5. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew
    where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble
    finding one? Thanks a lot!

  6. Heya! I realize this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask.

    Does building a well-established website such as yours require
    a massive amount work? I’m brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  7. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
    infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it appears
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from
    being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it.

  8. I absolutely love your blog and find most of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the
    subjects you write related to here. Again, awesome web log!

  9. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?

  10. You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I feel I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely vast for me. I am having
    a look ahead in your next submit, I will try to get the hold of it!

  11. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the
    near future but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  12. Heya i am for the first time here. I came across this board and
    I find It really useful & it helped me out much. I hope to give something back
    and help others like you helped me.
