Hey, hey, hey you beautiful souls!! Thank you so much for taking time to stop by the blog on this beautiful day. Today it’s all about your PERSONAL STYLE! Something short and sweet.
Towards the end of last year I was introduced to Kiyada Upshaw’s Personal Style E-book (you really need to check it out) by my blogger friend, Jaleesa of No Country For Old Trends. The thing that I loved about this book is that it’s short, sweet, and straight to the point. No history lesson required. This e-book not only got me thinking about my personal style, but it pushed me to immediately start incorporating it.
For some personal style may not be a big idea, and to others you may not know where to start (that’s a separate post for another day). So, today I want to give you 3 reasons why you need to start thinking about it:
1. It’s an Expression of Who You Are
There’s so many ways to show your personality and true self without saying a word with the clothes that you wear. Have you heard the saying “If you don’t tell your story, then no one else will”? Well, today I think it’s about time for you to start telling your own story.
2. You Never Know Who’s Watching
Before you start going off and saying “I don’t care who’s watching”, keep in mind those dreams and aspirations that you’ve kept in your heart. You never know who God may place in your path at the grocery store or nail salon. That promotion you’ve been waiting for (depending on your field) could very well come from the way you dress. “Dress for the job you want”, or better yet like the business owner that you aspiring to be. Even if your style is sweat pants, dress it up a little bit. I always wondered why women would dress up just to go to the store 💡💡.
3. “When You Look Good, You Feel Good”
Yep, the oldie is pretty simple! Did you know the way you dress and the colors you wear could have an effect on your mood for the day?(known fact) I feel at my best (like a boss) when I’m in a blazer, skirt, or a dress with heels of course. It’s just something about those things that me make me feel more confident, and walk with a little more swag. That dress that hugs your curves in all the right places, that heel that gives your butt that extra lift, and not to mention that jumpsuit that makes you feel like you can take over the world. Whatever it may be that gives you that boost, go for it!
So these are just 3 of the things I thought were super important for those who haven’t thought about, or haven’t put forth any effort towards their personal style. Let me know your thoughts about personal style, and if you would like more posts like this. Drop me a note below.
Until next time
