Have you ever found yourself standing in front of your closet, staring at a sea of clothes and feeling like you have nothing to wear? Or maybe you've been struggling to define your personal style and feel like you're supposed to fit into one specific fashion mold. As I've gotten older, I've found myself asking these same questions. I've wondered if I'm dressing too young or too old, and I've bought clothes that I never wear because I felt like I had to save them for a special occasion. But then, something shifted for me. My daughter asked me when I thought I lost my sense of style, and it hit me: I was trying to fit myself into one specific fashion category, when in reality, I have many moods and styles that make up who I am.
I realized that I didn't have to restrain myself to just one style - I could embrace my many moods and the different occasions in my life that called for a different look. Instead of just throwing on a shirt and pants, I started styling each outfit I wore, and I began making better choices throughout the day as a result. One day, after finishing a pilates class and wearing loose joggers and a t-shirt, I decided to change into a sundress, sandals, and a hat before heading out to lunch with my husband. And even though we've been married for over 30 years, I felt a little embarrassed at first. But he complimented me, and I felt better about myself wearing it. Now, I make it a point to get dressed for the day and embrace my many moods and styles. And I want to encourage you to do the same! Send me a picture of you dressed up for the day, and let's celebrate the uniqueness of our own personal styles.
Here's to embracing who we are and continuing to optimize our success!
