STYLE REBOOT #1 | Challenges | BusbeeStyle com

(upbeat music) – Hi ladies, it’s Erin, and
welcome back to my channel. If you’re new to my channel, I do upload new videos every
Wednesday and Friday morning at 6:00 a.m. Central, so I hope you will subscribe
and stick around for those. I want to start a brand new
series I’m very excited about called Style Reboot. You all have heard me talking about it now for a couple of weeks. I now am getting around to starting it. I have no idea how many
there are going to be. I’m just going to sort
of see how it plays out, but essentially what I’m gonna do is sort of go through what I would do if I were teaching a style
class or doing a presentation. I’m gonna start with step one, and we’re gonna work our way through to however many steps it takes. And so this will be designed so if you miss one, you can go back. I’ll number them and everything so you don’t feel like you’re missing out. But it’s definitely, it’s going to be a process, and it will be important to
kind of follow the steps. It will be important to follow
them, some of them in order. So just something to consider. And as always, if you have any questions, you can comment below. I’ll always put anything I’m gonna mention or any suggestions I’ll put in the description box, and then I’ll also do
a corresponding blog, so you guys could check that out as well. And if you’re not already
subscribed to my blog, you might wanna do that as well, because I do different content on the blog that I do on my YouTube channel. Okay, so for Style Reboot Number One, what I wanna talk about
are some of the challenges that we as women face that impede our style or impede us from
becoming our most stylish and best self. The first challenge is confusion. A lot of us fell overwhelmed
with information. There’s so much out there. There’s so much fast fashion going on. There’s so many trends. And then there are
trend within the trends. There are micro trends. You know, you transition
to a new lifestyle. Maybe you are not, still not sure about your body type. Maybe you’ve completely, you know, you’ve become a mom recently, and you’re not really sure how to dress. Maybe you’ve hit a milestone age, and you feel like you’re
supposed to dress differently. There are so many different things that can become very confusing
and overwhelming for us. And there’s so much
information to take in. And that’s why I really felt
compelled to do this series, because I feel like if you just kind of
watch these short videos, it’s going to help you kind of get your, give you a plan and cut through the crap, basically, okay? So hopefully we can do
that, cut through the crap. Maybe I shoulda called
it Cut Through the Crap. (giggling) The second challenge that
a lot of us face is money. So when I first started out after college, I got a job as a reporter, a TV reporter, and I was making about $16,000 a year. And I lived at home for a year, and then I also waitressed on the side just to make ends meet, really. And I remember, you know, I had to wear nice stuff because I was on camera, and I wanted to build a resume, ’cause I knew I wasn’t
going to stay there, and I wanted to build a tape and stuff. So, I know a lot about
shopping on a budget. We didn’t grow up wealthy. I always have had, you know, most of my life had to shop
on a very regimented budget. So, I get it. I understand it. You know, sometimes I don’t, or I forget about adding an option
to something for less, but I’m gonna be a little
bit more careful about that, a little more mindful of that. But there are definitely options for people who are on budgets. And if you are on a very strict budget, I would say that the
wardrobe basic component is going to be incredibly important, and that’s where you’re
going to spend your money. And then you’re gonna save your money on sort of the lighter, fluffier,
trendier, more fun pieces that you buy. But obviously there
are consignment stores, there are outlet stores. I’m gonna talk about
his in a separate video. But money I know, I get it. That’s a challenge, and it’s one that we’re
gonna address, coming up. Another challenge that a lot of us face that maybe all of us have is
time and the lack of time. As women, we are juggling our
career, our job, our business. We’re juggling motherhood. We’re juggling, you know,
being a wife, being a friend, being a cousin, being
an aunt, being a sister, being, you know, all of these
things to all of these people. And time is very valuable. Time is very precious. One of the first things that
gets put on the back burner is your style and your appearance. And I’ve given a lot of thought
to the importance of style and what role it plays in your life. I am aware that, on some level, there’s a real frivolity to it, and it is a bit superficial, on one hand. But on the other hand, it’s
such a vital, important role in your life. When you look good, then that translates to feeling good and looking good and feeling good. When you feel good, that
means you are a better mom, you’re a better wife,
you’re a better friend, you’re a better sister. It just, it’s one of those things, and I think we, you know,
intellectually think, oh, well, that’s just, it’s
not important, it’s frivolous. And it is, you know, somewhat frivolous, but at the end of the day, you know, how you feel in incredibly
important to your day to day. It’s incredibly important
how you perform in your job, it’s incredibly important how you perform as a matriarch of your family. So, you know, I don’t
think it’s so frivolous. I don’t think it’s so superficial. I think it’s really, really important. So, just something to think about. I know, you know, with the time factor, it is one of those things that kind of gets set in
the back burner first. But I’m gonna talk a little bit about some of the things you
can do to save time. The next challenge is just life. Like there are things
that happen in our life that sort of derail our style, the same things that derail
our exercise plan, right? Like you’re gonna have a
baby, you move to a new place. You know, you move to a new
place, and it’s very casual, and you’re not really sure how
to dress in that environment. Or you move to a cold
climate versus a hot climate or hot climate versus cold climate. Or maybe you’re changing jobs, and you went from a corporate
office-structured environment to very conservative to, oh I’m working in this very
business casual like, you know, more modern environment where
you can wear jeans to work. So there are a medley of things
that can happen in your life that can also serve to derail your style. Age is another one. You hit ages, you’re like, hm, I’m not sure I should
be wearing this at this age. There are a lot of
questions swirling around that happen as a result of just life, things happening in life, and that can serve to derail your style. So we’re gonna talk a little
bit about some of those things also, coming up. And then another one, a big one, especially for women,
especially if you’re a Catholic, you know what I’m sayin’ if you grew up Catholic. Guilt. Guilt is a big deal for women. When I was seeing clients full-time, I cannot tell you how many
clients cried in their closet. And they cried because they felt like
they didn’t deserve it, they felt guilty, because, for some reason,
when we become parents, or we become wives, we feel that we’re supposed
to put ourselves last and put everybody else first. And that happens all the time. We pretty much all do it. So guilt is another thing
that you have to overcome in order to enhance your style. Am I giving you license to go out and buy a $4,000 Chanel Boy Bag? Well actually, it’d be $5,000. No, I’m not. (giggles) I’m not saying that. But what I am saying is that it’s okay for you to take time, make time. It’s okay for you to spend
a little on yourself. It’s okay for you to take care of you. Because, again, if you take care of you, you feel better. And if you feel better, you are a better everything for everybody. So, you gotta get over the
guilt factor a little bit. And don’t beat yourself up. Like it’s okay to take care of yourself. It’s okay to do something
nice for yourself. It’s okay to love yourself
enough to take care of yourself. So, that would be another challenge. And then the last one would be fear. So I have worked with clients before where they’re just scared
to kind of try anything. They just don’t know what to do, and they’re almost like paralyzed in fear. And that can happen too. You know, you just don’t
know like really who you are or who you want to be
in terms of your style. Or you don’t wanna try something because you’re scared of the trend or you’re scared of the look or you’re scared of how people
are going to perceive you. And, you know, some of that
is just, maybe it’s age. Maybe you’re younger and just not real sure
who you are at that point. Or maybe it’s just, you know, the fear often just comes
from a lack of information and a lack of knowledge. So, what I’m gonna try to do this series is really give you a great
overall knowledge base so you feel like you
have the building blocks or the foundation so that you can be stylish, so that you do feel more confident
in making those decisions and taking those steps. And you feel like you have a plan, and you feel like you have a direction. And if I can achieve that,
then mission accomplished. So, that’s the goal of the series. We’re gonna tackle those challenges. These are challenges we all face. They are so normal. You are not alone. And I just think it’s important that we work on these together. I’m gonna do my best to help you, to hold your hand and walk you through it. And you’re gonna let me know
if you have any questions. You’re gonna email me,
you’re gonna comment below. Whatever’s easier for you. And we’re gonna whip our
style into shape for 2017. So again, thank you guys
so, so much for watching. Don’t forget to subscribe,
and I will see you next time. Bye. (tranquil music)


  1. LovedHappy says:

    Loved this so much Erin! This is such a great idea and I'm sure will help so many! I love all the things you touched on in this intro! Definitely excited and looking forward to the series! Xo

  2. Sharon M says:

    Looking forward to this series. I just turned a young 70. Suddenly this age bothers me and i question many items of clothing as to whether I'm too old to wear it I am also glad you mentioned budget.

  3. Nancy says:

    EXCITED about the series. Thank you.

  4. Nora de la Garza says:


  5. 21 cats says:

    I'm looking forward to it.xx annie

  6. designerdiva1103 says:

    Love your hair!

  7. Lori Lynn Lodge says:

    Great video. Looking forward to this little series!

  8. Lynda M says:

    Great! Include something for women in their 70's that desire to be stylish but classy. I love dresses (no cold shoulders etc. LOL) and I am in a position to wear them. I am very short so I prefer long dresses (to ankles or almost) to give me a linear look with jackets of all lengths. I am seeing leather & faux leather jackets for the spring and summer – I am not comfortable with that as yet as we live in the south but hope to get there because I love them in pastels. Thanks can't wait 👍👍

  9. Christette C says:

    love this, Erin. I must say my biggest issue is guilt. I am looking forward to this series.!

  10. Julianne Rogers says:

    sounds like it's going to be a great series, you are so knowledgeable and I look forward to listening to what you have to say

  11. Rosie Girl says:

    This sounds great Erin. Just what I need. Looking forward as always to your videos and blogs.

  12. Imar5d says:

    What a great series! I am in my late 40's and on a weightloss journey…. I have lost a considerable amount but am still not comfortable drawing attention to myself…. which is weird because I have seen women, larger than me, look gorgeous and so put together. I'm looking forward to learning so much from this series! Thank you Erin🌷

  13. Laila Papin says:

    Woohoo! I am so excited about this series!!!

  14. Embellish Life says:

    Fun series! I know this will make a difference for so many! You are awesome, love you and all you do. Thank you for taking the time for putting this all together. Hugs, Heidi xoxo

  15. Charlie Simmons says:

    Erin, you just blow me away. You are so intelligent, so intuitive and genuine. I really appreciate all the hard work you put into your channel. You're a blessing! I'm looking forward to this series.

  16. Dianne D Ballard says:

    Looking forward to this series!

  17. Joe Ely says:

    I just had a baby and I don't know how long it's going to take me to loose the weight so I'm  desperately wanting new clothes that make me feel good but timid because I don't want to spend a lot of money on clothes that may soon become too big. Finding clothes that will make a new mom feel confident but also be cheap or transition well for a mother who is dropping sizes would be nice.

  18. Grecia Pedroza says:

    I completely agree! Sometimes I feel so self centered when dressing up and trying to feel good in what I wear but at the same time its my creative outlet and I do it because I love doing it and I love the way I feel when I've put extra effort into my outfit and the way I look! It can literally transform my mood and outlook on my day and my life in general! I still struggle with feeling a little out of place at work (I work as a middle school teacher) when not all of my coworkers are as dressed up or as invested in the way they dress..makes me feel like they think I'm trying to show off or something but I'm really not and it's so difficult to face that and not be able to truly dress the way I want all the time! Don't get me wrong I never want to dress inappropriately (showing skin and all) I just want to try more styling like pairing prints and wearing chunking block heels with short cropped pants

  19. Vicki Teeples says:

    Looking forward to this series.

  20. Barb O says:

    This is excellent !!!👊🏼 so excited for this series😍 thank you Erin!!!😘

  21. Cristiana Helm says:

    I'm excited for this series! As a woman in her early 40s with an apple shape I really have a hard time figuring out what I should and should not wear.

  22. Denise Millikan says:

    Hi Erin, I don't think looking good is frivolous at all, I always try to dress nice, and Iam not talking $200 pair of jeans, or a $500 purse, Just a nice pair of jeans, nice boots or booties, nice sweaters, tops, makeup, a little lipstick, hair looking good and yes it does make you feel better definitely …so dressing nice does make you feel better and you are a better person to everyone… thanks for the great video, perfect ! ox Denise PS I love this series !

  23. Lee Katherine Herczogh says:

    Perfect timing on this series for me! My stay at home mom style needs a reboot! Thanks! 😉

  24. Crissol says:

    Thank you Erin for all your help, I am 50 and went from working in an uniform to a casual enviroment where I can where anything I want and is so liberating, I can really take in all your advise, and about money which is a big factor for me, Marshalls Target, Nordstrom rack offers great trends for a low price, looking forward to your series.

  25. shaustin22 says:

    Great video Erin 💟💟💟💟💟💟

  26. Angie says:

    great idea

  27. Celie Canada says:

    Erin thank you so much for this series!!! At 57 I have struggled with confidence and trying to get a style I'm comfortable with. You hit every challenge I have. It is like you made this video just for me 🙂
    You are a beautiful woman and speak so eloquently. Thank you again for all the help I've obtained by viewing your videos.

  28. Olivia Rix says:

    Excellent points. I'm really looking forward to this series!

  29. Cathy's Life says:

    Looking forward to this series! Great video Erin.

  30. Pam Ravenscroft says:

    Looking forward to this series!!

  31. Jen M says:

    This is awesome, Erin. Can't wait!

  32. Sterndli98 says:

    This series is coming at the right time for me. I lost a lot of weight, am actually still loosing weight and am probably changing jobs this spring.

  33. Denisse San says:

    I love her!!! Greetings from Guatemala! 😆

  34. Charlene Floyd says:

    Erin. Thank you!!! I'm looking forward to this! I'm 53 and because of thyroid issues have gained 50lbs. I wear the same rotation of cloths because I hate the way I look and feel nothing looks good on me. I work in the retail fashion industry and I guess I'm feeling my age and feel and dress like an old woman. One of my goals is to get this under control and I'm SO excited to watch this series!! You're the best.

  35. Gamala 💕 says:

    Good luck with the new series, Your Loveliness❗️. Very interested in the age approximate styles and cost effective shopping for my budget❗️. Great start❗️💕💕💕

  36. lifewithabang says:

    Looking forward to this! I am turning 40, and i feel i know who i am, am not worried about what people think, and i'm enjoying paying a little more attention to makeup and style!

  40. Cara Corson says:

    Great video….glad you mentioned the money aspect….not everyone can shop at Nordstrom and afford $175 pair of jeans….probably more people can't than can. Happy you are sensitive to that.

  41. joy wells says:

    This is a very good video with important info. I look forward to this series.

  42. Colleen says:

    Thank you Erin! Everything you said I can relate to. I am 61 this month and am looking forward to your series. 61 sounds old but I am as young as who I have been in all the stages of my life. If that makes sense. Love your channel!

  43. sapphirelady2 says:

    Thank you for doing this series. My big challenge is budget. I would love to have some of the jeans that you love, but I cant in good conscience spend $200 on a pair. I need more ideas for under $100 that would work for my body, which is hard to fit!

  44. Joanna M says:

    I enjoyed the video Erin x

  45. Lisa Copeland says:

    So excited! Lisa

  46. elinor dashwood says:


  47. Karen Petersen says:

    Awesome series idea!

  48. Anne Del Riccio says:

    Can you please talk about us big girls giving ourselves permission to care for ourselves? Because I believe we are shamed into not caring for ourselves. You seem like a lovely woman, and I hope this makes sense

  49. Melissa55 says:

    lol, I like "cut through the crap"!!! I really will so appreciate learning how to save time. That is a big one for me and I think a lot of women. I'm past the small children age, but have moved over into other demands so any hints I'm really going to study and appreciate. Thank you so much Erin for doing this. It's going to be wonderful! Much love, Melissa

  50. Sharlene McQuaid says:

    Fantastic idea I need updating can't wait

  51. monelka1985 says:

    Erin, I just recently discovered this company called Lularoe and i must say that I am slightly obsessed with their clothing as I purchased a couple of their pieces. The clothing is very cute and comfortable. The prints and patterns are adorable, I'm not into the crazy patterns like hot dogs and french fries 😂. I am a stay at home mom to two little girls who are six and three. I am in my early 30sand I love the ease and effortlessness this of this line. What are your thoughts and honest opinions on the brand/style of clothes that they have to offer?

  52. Laura D63 says:

    I so needed to find this channel right now!   EXCITED~

  53. The Hip Chick Online says:

    Great video series idea! You are so right I n this video. My motto has always been "when we look good, we feel good and our confidence really shines!" Excited for more! 😘

  54. Saundra Moragne says:

    I need a Reboot!!

  55. Joanne Miracle says:

    excited about this series 😊

  56. Jill Radcliffe says:

    Can't wait to learn! Thanks Erin!

  57. Kendy Falo says:

    Love your videos !

  58. L L says:

    Great idea for a series. Looking forward to more installments!

  59. Jennifer De La Cruz says:

    I love this, Erin! For most of my teenage/adult years, I would have thought of myself as stylish. In the last 4 years my life has changed tremendously! I no longer work in an office, where I'm meeting with clients, etc., I'm a stay at home mommy now. I'm beyond thankful, but it has left me feeling lost and confused with how to dress myself. Which is something I've never had issue with before. I'm looking forward to your tips!

  60. Allison Templeton says:

    Great. Looking forward to this series. Thank you!

  61. michele citrin says:

    Hi Erin, This was such a great video that I had to watch it twice!

  62. Denise Julius says:

    Great video!! I'd love to add that our daughters (or other young women in our lives who see us as role models) watch and learn from how we care for ourselves too. I think a great way for them to start to value themselves is to see that behavior in action. 🙂

  63. Melissa Yackley says:

    Can't wait to see more of this series! What a great Style 101 class–love the idea of walking through steps one at a time because there IS a ton of information out there to sort through. Thanks for doing it!

  64. Elizabeth Henson says:

    Love this video! I'm turning 50 in a couple of weeks, and after a few years of a style slump, and am now having a style renaissance.

  65. Jamie Torres says:

    Thank you so much for this series Erin, I so need it and I'm so excited for it!!!

  66. Gia says:

    Will definitely be keeping up with this series. Sounds like just what I need, a reboot. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  67. Kimberly Oertel says:

    so excited for this! you are wonderful, thank you so much! 🙂

  68. imamyloo says:

    I am so happy I found your channel, and even happier for this series. I am early 40's and feel so young and vibrant, but I need my outside to match my insides. Hope this helps. And I'm in San Antonio as well.

  69. Linda Giammarino says:

    how exciting that your sharing this series REBOOT, can't wait to learn from you!!! the challenge I have is a bigger bust, thick waist, and thinner legs. I don't like my arms, hope to learn how to dress for my body type. YES! more on the budget. thank you for this. love your hair

  70. Michele Nelon says:

    Yay! Let's do this! I turn 50 in March, been watching you for a while now and feel more confident than ever about my style. You are accomplishing your mission:)

  71. Cecilia Quinn says:

    Thank you so so much to you Erin!!!

  72. Chiquis J says:

    Can't wait!! Thank you Erin!!

  73. Rita Cymbalista says:

    Talk about guilt, trying growing up Jewish!  Looking forward to this very exciting and informative series.

  74. Cynthia Wilson says:

    Hi Erin! I'm so excited about your new series, and I particularly like the idea of helping us to organize our style/come into our own. I'm 52 and want to have a sophisticated modern yet classic style with a little edge. Your videos have helped me tremendously! Although I work in a professional office, I'm active with family, friends, church and the community. I'm proud to say that I happily embrace my Catholic faith, but without the "Catholic guilt." The guilt that does tend to creep up on me is not about whether I'm worthy of purchasing for myself, but rather am I being a good steward of the family finances when I do make personal purchases. My husband has a brain injury that affects his ability to work as much as he used to, and we have two young adult children (a senior in private school, and a college student) at home. Therefore, money is very tight. That is why I especially like your ideas for clothing and accessories that look expensive, are of good quality, and yet they don't hurt the budget too much.
    Thank you for your willingness to help us, your sound advice, your great sense of humor, beauty, style and your generosity. I'm learning and adapting a great deal of your style thanks to you. May God continue to bless you and your lovely family. XOXO…

  75. Diana Gyuró says:

    Hi Erin, congratulation to your chanel and for the reboot series. Currently I am lost in the fashion-maze, so I need some good advices. Greetings from Austria, Europe

  76. Joy Faith says:

    Love this concept, style reboot. I sure need this. Never too late to improve. I'm 60 and find your advice helpful.

  77. Sharon Sutich says:

    Thank you Erin!! Such a great idea. Looking forward to this series!! xo

  78. Jens Happy Home says:

    I love this series. I feel constantly challenged with style. I am very petite and constantly end up shopping juniors clothing because everything in the women's department is always too big. Any advice since you are very petite as well?

  79. TheDawgies says:

    I checked out your channel based on the shout out by Stephanie Marie. So worth the time to watch your videos. Thank you! Robin

  80. Olga Candelaria says:

    You nail it! That is what we all women have felt at some point.

  81. Bright Angel says:

    I really needed to hear this. Thank you so much, Erin. How did you get to be so wise?

  82. Victoria Bristow says:

    This is the third video of yours I watch! Where have you been!?!? I'm hooked! I'm also right up the road in Austin! Ok got to go binge watch while the kids nap. 😀

  83. The Catholic Girl says:

    This was so good. I needed to hear this. Especially about the guilt. 😂 You're great. So down to earth. I love it.

  84. James Briggs says:

  88. Shirley Singer says:

    Thank you for the Video!! Great! ! XOXO I Am so looking foward to the next one!!

  89. Karen Sample says:

    Thank you💕💖

  90. Pardon me while I live here says:

    I thank you so much for keeping in mind women who are wanting to stay with in a budget. I've found, through running our family business, people are becoming increasingly aware and of trying to 'live with in their means'. I think it's a fabulous trend, but as a result, our closests tend to take the hit And, yes I get the guilt. Lol! 😉

  91. Zina Risley says:

    Life changes: peri-menopause & menopause, your bed linens change & you have to layer your clothing…

  92. Trapper says:

    "Maybe…you got a raise…"

  93. Zoe Smith says:

    Hi Erin your videos are so helpful I’ve put on 4 stone so I’m reluctant to buy loads of really stylish clothes in the larger size when I’m dieting, I have loads of nice clothes to wear when I’ve lost weight I can’t wait 🙂 your videos are really helpful & positive thank you Zoe from England

  94. Peggy Gourton says:

    The last two part is so touching, thx again ❤️

  95. Mayra Blanco says:

    I can't believe I had missed these awesome videos! I don't think it's frivolous. To me fist impressions are important b/c it's a lasting impressions. Great info -thanks Mayra

  96. Cindi Bennett says:

    Hope you can touch on topics that a 74 year old can relate to. Sounds like you are inclusive, pretty general in your information. Just found YOU!

  97. Love Lynne Esguerra says:

    I am very new to your channel but just based on this video alone, I already love it. I love how real you are and I can relate so well with what you say. Thank you and I am looking forward to the rest of this series as well as your other videos.

  98. cj marshall says:

    I’m getting addicted to your videos. So much great information and you really inspire to be more strategic about my wardrobe. Thank you!

  99. Silvergirl7 says:

    My goal: clean out and organize my closet! YouTube ideas for that brought me here to you and boy am I glad I found you! ‘Clean out your closet” has been on my list for sometime now…and I realized I have things in my closet that are 30 years old (that I, personally, purchased 30 years ago- not fun vintage or anything)! In texting that, I just realized I’ve officially reached the status of my grandmas closet we used to make fun of as snooty teenagers-and although I’m close to being a grandma myself, I refuse to go down with the old stereotype! The point I was trying to make is that you can continue down the same path of aimlessly spending when things are on sale (thinking you’re doing yourself a favor) OR take this “head on” the ‘right’ way and strategically spend to get a final product that works together and is really complete. In the end, I think I’ll feel and look far more special in these items that are quality over quantity and all have a specific purpose together.

    I am so glad I found your channel. You changed the way I buy clothes with your basics checklist (genius). You encouraged me to lose that extra 5 pounds that was holding me back from feeling good about myself. Getting dressed for Thanksgiving took me less than 5 minutes, usually, it's a 30-minute nightmare. I felt pretty again. Thank you for doing what you do!
