Clothes are emotional. I was reminded of that on the last episode of Project Runway, and again today. When I'm happy I reach for bright colors, prints and dresses.
When I'm sad or stressed I STAY in my PJ's.
When I'm tired I reach for jeans and a t-shirt.
When I'm feeling extra pretty I wear dresses and skirts.
I dress with my emotions not because I want to send a message to the world, but because being such a visual person, clothes have the ability to impact my mood.
Today was a stressful, emotional day, and it started out with me staying in my PJ's until Noon. However, I decided to take a break and forced myself to hop in the shower, take extra time for my makeup and hair, and pick out an outfit I feel confident in. Granted, I'm still a bit bummed about my morning speed bumps, but I'm feeling much more positive and confident sitting in the exact same chair as before simply because I "dressed for success." Cheesy -I know, but it seriously can help turn frowns upside down. ;)
