Comfortable = Confidence

The most important rule I go by for my personal style is, be comfortable. Being comfortable is important for me because it's what makes me feel confident with what i'm wearing. You probably know exactly what I mean when I say, there's nothing worse than being out, your in a cute outfit, and your constantly having to pull, tug, lift, stretch, adjust, etc. If the fit is off, everything is off. Those outfit days are long gone for me, I've learned my lesson, miserably. If i'm hitting the town I MUST be comfortable. I also must have something to keep me warm, because there's nothing worse, for me, than freezing to death. One of the things I've learned about my personal style, is that I love trying to dress up a piece that's super casual.  Why? Because 9 times out 10 casual pieces are the most comfortable pieces. Mixing casual and dressy is my goal. I don't always do it, but I love to. For example, a simple t-shirt paired with a pencil skirt. such a cute look. Or even ripped jeans, comfortable heels, a basic tee and a blazer. Classic, love that look. I try to think outside of the box when i'm styling a look, for any occasion. When i'm standing in my closet, instead of buying a new outfit, I think about what pieces I haven't ever thought to pair together. I also tell myself to not think about what's trending, and rather maybe start a new trend. Regardless of what your wearing, personally, as long as your comfortable and confident, it will show, and you will look good. Confidence is the best accessory you can have. I believe when your confident it's obvious. It radiates an energy that somehow attracts people. And for me feeling comfortable, makes me feel confident. Test my theory. Step 1: Wear something casual and mix it with one or two dressier pieces that you feel good about and feel good in. Step 2: Walk into a room like you own it and see how many people pick up on your confident energy. You will be turning heads. Those are usually the times that people approach me the most and compliment my outfit. Today's look is an example of just that. I went to breakfast with my sister and can't tell you the looks and compliments I got, and this look is definitely nothing fancy. Also, the look from Monday's post. I wore that outfit last week to an event I went to with Mike. I was super comfortable (and warm) and people were stopping me to tell me how cute I looked. All because I was simply comfortable, which made me confident. Let me know how my theory works out for you! Until next time...
