Dressing in chiffon and wearing your best lipstick can create confidence that isn’t easily curated. When I first started writing this blog my inspiration was based around sharing and promoting this exact feeling. I wanted to help women feel this confidence every day with style tips and confidence strategies implemented daily. We can do more when we feel our best. My confidence can often be sparked or strengthened when I put some effort into my look for the day. Feeling your best is directly related to looking your best. Put some time into your makeup routine, take a class on how to do a winged eyeliner or a new look altogether. Spend time planning your outfit or trying a new trend this season. Taking care of ourselves helps us to be empowered to take care of others. Confidence is key and it can be lifted by making yourself wear that top that hangs continually because you don’t want to take it to the dry cleaner later that week. My advice is don’t worry about it just wear it. Look your best in the office, out to dinner, or at home and do it for yourself. Looking your best isn’t about impressing someone else it is about reminding yourself who you are and what you can become. You are beautiful and you are powerful. Remind yourself daily by presenting yourself with all of your worth in mind. Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by!

Nostalgic & Sentimental

Ruffles don’t go out of style and it is important to shop with these timeless tricks in mind. My dad bought me this sweater on my 18th birthday and it is still such a great piece to mix with any blouse. You don’t always need to but a new piece to feel your best. Throw on that piece of nostalgia or the sentimental piece of jewelry someone bought you and make it your piece of confidence. Confidence isn’t bought it is made.

We all take it for granted when we have it but once we catch a cold we have that fresh perspective with gratitude. Keep your heart healthy and everything that connects to it. Jake and I are currently doing a juice cleanse and I’m excited about added health as a result. Our bodies are always moving, working, and changing so it is important to take time to heal and repair. My first stop in caring for myself physically and mentally is a good stop at the Barre.
