How Not to Dress Like a Hot Mess


Plus 3 Looks & How to Go From Hot Mess to Put Together in a Matter of Minutes

Do not dress like a hot mess. Hear me out! In this Car Smart episode, I make my case with all the reasons why embracing the “hot mess express” look is only hurting you – not because of what other people think, but because of how it makes us feel. Plus, I share my 3 looks and how you can quickly pull yourself together in a matter of minutes.

It’s become culturally acceptable to dress like a hot mess. But I think we take it too far. The reason why I want to talk to you about this is because I want to help you. Anything I talk about on The Chalene Show is because I think there’s a way to live life happier, healthier, fuller, and smarter. I want you to be happier, I want you to be healthier, and I want it to be easier. And I don’t think putting on your husband’s beat up sweatshirt and a holy pair of sweat pants is easier. Listen to this episode “How Not to Dress Like a Hot Mess” to hear my case, then leave me a message to make yours!
