Iam going through what they call body shape and something of Style revolution at the moment.For years I have maintained a stable body weight and size and bulid up an exclusively Colorful ,brite wardrobe that contains tops,skirts and dresses mostly.Oh I’ve got all kinds of dresses,long,mini,high neck,long sleeved,short sleeved,low neck,bodycone,distressed ,structured,puffy …All brite and from all kind of fabrics. I still have no real issue with my color palette,It’s fun and ultra feminine,but towards the end of my pregnancy and my work at the office my wardrobe began to be really difficult to mix and match.It wasn’t easy.I did not invest in basics.Dressing down gave me headache.The only time was easy for me was dressing for an event,party or dinner.
I always thought Monochrome is not exciting in the game of dressing up…yawn!
I dont know if it’s my work or lifestyle,I started to branch out;Black and White,Basics and Trousers that aren’t made of denim…You name it. Wearing Black feels like an alien for me.When you look into your wardrobe and nothing seems wearable,it’s time for a shake up.Trying something new is as freshing up to me,specially that it’s nearly spring. Iam now able to play with my pieces and wear them in a tottaly different way,It makes me feel a brand new person.
On a less serious note- I wore this outfit for a lunch meeting in a fancy a Michelin starred restaurant and could later on work relaxed in my outfit on my desk at the office.I added those flared Black trousers to my wardrobe and matched them with lace top.Lace is having a moment right now. Paired them with a struchtered blazer that every working woman should have..The tottal look turned out classy and trendy at the same time.I took out my red bag for a pop of color.I should be a bit feminine right?And most importantly I wore my confidence…
Confidence… is the secret behind every good outfit.However,a lucky few are born with it and the rest us have to work on it.I believe that each person is remarkable and wonderful when they do themselves and let others see that on them.Your outfit looks great when you wear your confudence well.
I wanted to share my own 5 tips on why wearing your confidence is the best piece in your Waredrobe.
Every morning before heading outdoor wear a smile on your lips.Smile when you say ‘’hello’’ to people.Your lips are the first part that you should wear your confidence.It can say a lot about your personality than you can imagine.It can brighten up your parade and makes people around you feel much better.It will surprise you to find out what a smile on your face can change.
ACCEPT YOUR PERSONALITY
It must be easy to say it but what if you want to be someone else?
You will probably end up being a low imitation of someone else. I always try to be ‘’ me, the whole me and nothing but me ‘’. You do you and I do me. It is that simple.Being a false version of yourself can be hindering,exhausting and absolutely not worth it. Speak the way you want to speak,wear what you want to wear;there will be always two types of people. Some will like and the others will dislike.The world will continue turning…Focus on your unique qualities and celebrate them.
EMBRACE YOUR FLAWS
No body is perfect. Everyone have something about themselves they wish they could change.Accepting your flaws is one of the most hindering factors in building your confidence. I have read somewhere that it can really help you improve your selfesteem.You can try to address those imperfections, you start working on them and try to change them.Dont forget that your flaws can make you different from everybody else. That’s actually a good thing that makes you appreciate your indivituality.Don’t let your flaws hold you back from your dreams instead of that make them famous!
DO WHAT YOU LOVE
Speaking for myself, It wasn’t an easy decision to start a blog while on the otherhand working in a Law firm.Both areas are extremely different from eachother.I could not go for one as I love doing both.. The decision to persue my wish to have my own blog made me happy.When you are happy,there is a glow about you that radiates from within you..Therefore, you will have more confidence and trust in yourself.
Being positive spreads positive vibes around you and it costs you nothing other than a smile. Respond to situation in a positive and great attitude.It looks classy and sophisticated.Dont let anyone to make you feel inferior.Grab a notepad and jot down three things you are grateful for.Affirm your great attributes over and over again and believe in them.
After working on these tips,you are indeed more attractive and strong.Confidence is the best quality a person can own.You are then more happy.It reflects in your smile and the warmth you carry around you makes others want to be a part of your life.. So wear on your confidence and the world will take a note of you.
