Hi, I’m Alison Lumbatis, a recovering yoga pants addict and the creator of the style website for real women Get Your Pretty On. My mission is simple – I believe that every woman should have access to great style and feel pretty. As a mom of three, I understand how hard it can be to get ready on a daily basis and take care of yourself while taking care of everyone else. My goal is to make style as easy and affordable as possible for other women.
My Mom Rut
I started Get Your Pretty On and the first Style Challenge after falling into my own yoga pants mom rut. After a few years of working from home, I’d lost all accountability and motivation for getting dressed and taking care of myself. It was negatively impacting more than just my appearance. To get out of my mom rut, I carved out time to feel pretty every morning by putting on a little makeup, fixing my hair (in something other than a ponytail) and getting dressed in real clothes. When I picked up my daughter from school the first day of my new routine she said “Mommy, what happened to you? You look PRETTY!” That was when I decided to make the commitment to looking and feeling better – not just for myself, but for my family too.
Starting GYPO turned out to be the kick in the yoga pants I needed to make an effort every day to stay out of my mom rut!
What I discovered is that it’s just as easy to put on a cute outfit as it is to put on yoga pants. All you need are the right wardrobe pieces and some easy go-to outfit combinations created from them. Style Challenges give you both. I provide a shopping list with the pieces and done for you outfit ideas. You can shop your closet first and spend as much or as little as you want. I even give you links so you can shop online at some of your (and my) favorite stores – from Target to Nordstrom! You don’t have to be be wealthy to have your own personal stylist, my style challenges are at a price point that anyone can afford.
Whether you’ve forgotten what pretty feels like, are ready to rediscover your style or just want looking put together to be a little easier, you’re at the right place! Since the first Style Challenge in 2014, over 10,000 women in 20 countries have rediscovered their style, regained their confidence and made new friends in our vibrant community.
