It’s my birthday today, which means I’ve been writing this blog for 9 years now. It’s a funny thing creating content and writing about style on a blog. The second you start one, you feel like you have to have it all figured out, that you’ve got to appear to be some kind of authority if you are going to have the audacity share what you are creating.
When I started this, I was just beginning to explore and develop my personal style, I was a stay at home mom wanting to do something creative and connect with other women, and keep challenging myself to learn how to better dress my petite body.
I used to think that to be successful in this space I had to pretend like I’ve always somehow intuitively known how to dress, but the truth is, I didn’t.
Sometimes, I still don’t. Yes, I still try outfits that don’t work and not every style risk is rewarded.
But if there’s one thing I’ve learned to hone over the last nine years in this space, it’s how to tap into the true power behind clothes: the power to help you live your best life.
Yes, clothes are fun, they’re a great creative outlet, and they’re a fun expression of our personal tastes, but that’s not where their true power lies. The true power behind your clothes, is their ability to change the way you think and feel about yourself, enabling you to live the very best version of your life.
If I’ve known anything intuitively in this space its that I’ve always done better and felt better on days when I was confidently dressed. The days when I’m dressed in something that makes me feel like a million bucks are always my most productive and most enjoyable. I deserve to feel this way everyday, and so do you. You deserve to show up for every day of your life feeling like a million bucks.
Over time, I’ve honed my approach to building a closet that makes it easy to accomplish this every day, and I get an insane amount of joy teaching other women how to do the same.
My closet is my secret weapon, and every day it endows me with power in working towards living my best life.
If your closet isn’t doing this for you, it’s time to make a change!
