I am not a morning person. I, like anyone else, know how hard it is to scoot out of bed and find the strength to plan a great outfit. It’s horrible, but you know what? It’s worth it. When you walk out of the house and you feel comfortable and confident, you’re off to a great start. With a kickin’ outfit, you have a positive outlook on the day. Am I right?
No, your outfit doesn’t have to be the most amazing outfit ever. It doesn’t have to have expensive price tags. Heck, it doesn’t have to be brand new. Just mix and match what you’ve got, try new combinations, accessorize like crazy. When you go shopping, buy one pair of shoes or a cardi or a necklace that’s out of your comfort zone. When you add that piece with the stuff you normally wear, it won’t look so “out there” anymore.
Why am I giving you this pep talk you ask? Why am I being so pushy? I’ll tell you. I wore two (in my opinion) kick-ass outfits to work the last couple of days. I carried myself differently. I was more productive and more positive. Maybe it’s because it’s been really busy, but I also think my attitude and outlook had something to do with my great outfits.
No, I’m not going to post photos of the outfits. They really weren’t very cool at all. But who cares! I felt great because I made an effort and created new outfit combinations, and strayed away from black.
All I’m saying is don’t make excuses for yourself. Don’t give into the freezing cold weather. Don’t give into how tired you are. Don’t give into wearing frumpy or wrinkled clothes. Be proud of your outfits! It’ll change your outlook for the day. I know it’s not possible to try hard everyday, but don’t give into the vicious cycle of never, ever caring about how you look. You won’t regret it.
