Daily Tip: Dress To Be The Woman You Want To Be
I stay home, I rarely go out and I went through a phase a few years back of not getting fully dressed, wearing sweats or yoga pants becuase no one was going to see me. Well the truth is I see me, everyday when I pass a mirror and those clothes did not represent who I wanted to be. They said 'I quit, I don't care anymore' and that is not who I wanted to be. I felt getting dressed in nice clothes, putting on makeup was just a waste of my time because I couldn't go anywhere and the truth is I did quit. After some time of this I found myself fading away becoming lost in my own shit and looked in the mirror looking at this sad woman that was not me.
Today I get dressed, fully dressed every single day. If I am feeling a little sad I dress to be happy, if I feel like I am losing my strength I dress strong, like a femme fatale. I dress to be the woman I want to be and shouldn't we always raise the bar? There is no rule that says if you stay home you should dress like a maid, no offense just going with a stereotype. What do I want my clothes to tell people about me? Well I know I sure don't want them to say I am sick or I'm not as strong as I use to be. What do you want your clothes to say about you?
Break The Rules:
Wear stilettos and red lipstick to vacuumm blarring Meet Virginia
Wear a sequined skirt with a sweatshirt to the grocery store
Wear black leather pants with a fisherman sweater and hightops to the PTA meeting
Stop defining yourself but what you do or don't do anymore
