Look good, feel better.

Dressing with confidence is more than wearing the latest fashion trend, it’s about feeling good about what you’re wearing, looking poised and feeling self-assured in all situations. When you are dressed well you feel more attractive and powerful. You have the option to do this every day, so why don’t you?

Many women don’t realize how much fashion affects their attitudes and self-confidence. When you’re getting dressed you feel first and dress later. This means that if you’re feeling lazy then you’re going to reach for your sweats but if you’re in a good mood then you’re going to be willing to take a little bit more time and effort to find a better outfit.  Try to change how you feel before getting dressed and it will benefit you dramatically. When we feel good and are dressed better we have more energy throughout the day, treat others better and have a better day overall.

Here are a few quick and easy outfit ideas for this fall:

Just throw on a vest, scarf, earrings and/or some bracelets.  Adding accessories can make a big difference to a simple outfit.

Monday, my “Lazy-day”.

Don’t even think about going to school in your sweats. If you want to have a lazy day, here is an example of a comfy “lazy-day” outfit.

Even though I woke up with plenty of time to do my hair and choose a different outfit this morning I chose to be lazy. This is really the perfect lazy-day outfit. The sweater is embellished just enough to not have to worry about wearing accessories, the leggings (plain ones could be worn too) match the color of the embellishment, and the sandals are just plain black. You can wear just about any sweater you want with some leggings and your choice of shoes.

It took me about 5 minutes to get ready this morning. I threw on this outfit, let my hair air-dry and put a little mascara on. If you wanted to wear this outfit to more than just school then you can.

All you have to do is loosely curl your hair, add a little lip gloss, natural eye-shadow or eyeliner, blush (if you want) and you’re set!

If you add the time it took to curl my hair, add blush, lip gloss, and a little eye-shadow then were to about 15 minutes. That’s not to shabby for a lazy-day.

I hope this helped you and gave you a few ideas for some outfits. I’ll continue to post my “Lazy-day” outfit every Monday to give you more ideas and keep you away from those sweats!

Fall Fashion: Boots

Well ladies, it’s that time of year where we finally get to wear boots again! I started noticing girls at school and some co-workers wearing them which got me thinking about some of the crazy boots I’ve seen. Let’s be honest and say boots with fur aren’t a good choice 99.9% of the time. I’ve found a few example of a variety of boots that you should never wear, can always wear,  and that are popular right now.

To start off, boots you should never wear:

I don’t even know how these got to be made! Sure, a few of them have heels and a little bit of structure to them but in the end they’re a fail. I asked a few friends (guys) what they thought of boots, particularly ones with fur and they all said that it was a no-go. These include ugg boots ladies, sorry. I’ve heard they’re rather comfortable.

Boots you can never fail with:

These boots have structure and come in a HUGE variety. From ankle to thigh, black to blue. If you just choose a neutral color (brown, black, beige, etc.) Then you can wear them all season with basically every outfit you put together. Guys opinion: these boots are just fine, just be careful when buying them and don’t get the ones that will make you look like one of the Three Musketeers or Jack Sparrow.

Example:

Whats popular? Combat Style:

These boots are more of a  grunge look so if you like them I say go for it! I’ve seen a lot of girls with them and they’re really starting to grow on me. There is a large variety of these as well so just find the pair that you like. The guys opinion on these shocked me, only because i know women sometimes like weird/different styles. They all said they like them and  to go for it!

I hope you’ll take these options into consideration next time you’re out shopping.

“I like my money right where I can see it… hanging in my closet.”

Yeah… I love seeing it my bank account, but I love showing it off too.
Right after I read that quote I HAD to go look at some sweet pictures of closets filled with clothes.

Here are a few for you to check out…

Those are only a few that I found, I couldn’t post the extreme ones because of sudden website problems. :/ I will admit though, I am rather jealous. I can’t wait for the day when I can do this to my closet. It’s so organized and wonderful. 🙂

Happy Monday, everyone!

I don’t know about you but when I woke up this morning I was feeling really lazy. The thought went through my head to just go to school in my pajama’s, but, that thought quickly passed and I remembered why I never do that.

Here are 3 reasons why I wouldn’t wear sweats in public…

  1. It’s easy for me to throw on a pair of jeans with a hoodie or plain t-shirt and call it good.
  2. When I’m wearing sweats I’m not as confident as I am in jeans. Don’t tell me wearing them out in public is building your self-confidence because I know it’s not. “I don’t care what people think.” I know you do, ladies. Remember “Always dress like you’re going to see your worst enemy.”
  3. If you want to impress the guy that is standing next you then don’t wear sweats. He will look right past you and look at the girl that took that extra couple minutes to get dressed. Guys are looking for girls that take care of themselves.

Here are some good examples of what you can wear on your “Lazy-Day” 

It’s such a simple outfit! Leggings, long and loose-fitting top, and a pair of flats.

This is another easy outfit. If it’s a little cooler outside just throw on a pair of jeans with a cute sweater and your set!

I know I can’t talk all of you out of wearing sweats to school or other places (even though it’s so easy) so, here are a couple examples of more suitable sweats.

These fit your body, unlike your boyfriends XL basketball sweats. 😉

If your heart is setting on wearing sweats then just put a little more thought and effort into the ones that you’re wearing.
