Dress For The Day You Want To Have

I don’t remember  exactly where I first heard the phrase, dress for the day that you want to have. But whoever said it, thank you, thank you, thank you. There are days that just call for yoga pants and a hoodie, no doubt. But unless you are sick or depressed, you need to put some real clothes on every day. What do I mean by real clothes? Clothes that you are not embarrassed to be seen out in public in. Clothes that show a sense of pride. Clothes that make you feel good and beautiful. When I dress the part, I feel the part.

Just this morning, I got up early, took a shower, put on a cute outfit, and 5 minute makeup. Nothing special or super fancy. Nothing that took more than 20 minutes tops – including makeup. I felt presentable and ready to face the day. Can I just tell you the difference in my self-confidence and attitude when I know that I look nice? It is amazing. I left the house to work in a coffee shop and kicked my to-do list to the curb.

I am hardly a style maven. In fact, I really dislike shopping for clothes. But I do know what works for me and what I feel comfortable, yet presentable in. I buy outfits that are simple and can be more interesting with jewelry and scarves. I have a “uniform” if you will that I can change up in a million different ways. I love makeup and am constantly changing it up. If you are not a makeup wearer, I recommend going to a make up counter (Bobbi Brown is my all-time favorite for a natural, put together look) and have the makeup artist give you some tips and show you how to do a super quick face. Each day, I use a little powder foundation, bronzer, blush, mascara, and lip gloss. That’s it, but I feel so much better as soon as I put it on.

Give it a try. Dress for the day that you want to have.

    I couldn’t agree with you more on this. Getting up and getting dressed/putting myself together makes a world of difference in the amount of productivity I have each day. As someone who works from home, it’s easy to just let yourself go, but it makes me feel so much better when I don’t! And yey for getting your to do list done!!

    Doesn’t it? It is hard to do sometimes when I know that no one is going to see me. But I feel better and stand taller. Totally worth it.

    Tracy Larsen’s blog sent me over here. =)

    I like this post and I agree! I usually get ready, from socks to hair w/in 30 mins (that includes shower, clothing, makeup, hair).

    I am by all means, not fashionista, but do feel that what we wear does affect us… at least, for the most part. =)
