I've got news for you, even if you discover your planner style today, it may change tomorrow!! Whether or not you take that as bad or good news, is up to you, but I think it's good news! Isn't it fun to think that your style will change and evolve as you grow and improve over time. So if this stye thing is so complex, then how in the heck are we supposed to find it in the first place?
If you seem to think that everyone has found their style but you are struggling to nail yours down, keep reading!
Our planner styles are as unique as each of us, your house doesn't look exactly like your mom's or your best friend's, even if you have similar tastes. I'm sure if you look at the magazine covers next time you are waiting in line at the grocery store, you'll notice the vaste range of styles when it comes to home decor.
Why not take a look at the way you've styled your home, the clothes you wear and even the last packs of paper napkins you've bought. Out of all the napkins out there you bought the ones with the teeny flowers and soft coloured butterflies (or graphic bold coloured geometrics, or neutral organics). Today's outfit, the cushion you are sitting back on and the napkin under your pecan muffin all scream YOU!
You can also look to what planner spreads you double tap on Instagram or to the colours and patterns on the kits that you have in your Etsy cart. Colours and patterns tend to repeat themselves in different parts of your life, so take those things and apply them to you planner.
You will automatically be drawn to colours and patterns that are part of your style. It's your style because you like these things. Now, not everything that you like will eventually make it to your planner but it's a good place to start.
Pay attention to what you put in your planner, keep like things with like. If your style varies, keep the butterflies and delicate flowers on one spread and the bold geometrics on another until you nail down your style. Who knows, your style might just be the genius way you mix these two styles together. The more you plan, the more you will narrow down your style, until it becomes second nature.
In the two product review videos below, I show you ALL the pretty things in my boxes, but then at the end I narrow it down and show you my ultimate favourites. Those favourites represent my truest style. That doesn't mean that I can't use the other products (oh, believe me I will!) but choosing a few favourites out of a large selection can help you narrow down your style.
Have a look at the videos and choose your favourites and see how they compare to mine!
