My Thoughts on Personal Styling and Self Love
Luxury, Hollywood, and out of reach are the first thoughts that come to mind when speaking of personal styling (for most people).
With follow up comments such as:
Are you crazy, I can’t afford a personal stylist!
What do I need a personal stylist for?
Or, I’m fine with how I look.
Which are understandable points however with statistics showing that, 85% women ‘opt out of important life activities, such as trying out for a team or club, and engaging with family or loved ones, when they don’t feel good about the way they look., the real question then becomes can you afford not to have a personal stylist?
Think about it…
Tons of women spend their money biweekly getting their nails perfectly manicured or hair professionally styled for what reason? To feel good about themselves. To love on themselves because guess what we deserve it! I’m all for it.
If something so small as nails can make you feel empowered and confident, then imagine how you can feel if you look your best from head all the way down to your pedicured toes!
You would feel like you can conquer the world, right?
As much as most people hate to admit it we live in superficial world and the way we look has a lot to do with how we feel, how we act and how people treat us.
And with that in mind here's what I believe...
I believe that practicing a little self love and enhancing your personal style can and will change the way you see yourself. And once you see yourself, I mean really see yourself for who you are and what you have to offer the world, then you just can't help, but be empowered to take ownership of your life.
I know you're thinking that something so superficial couldn't possibly change your life but hear me out...
Have you noticed that when you wear your best outfit you feel like you are on top of the world? Your shoulders are back, your chin is up, you are owning every room you walk into and despite your insecurities, you actually feel good about yourself. This is what we call the power of style!
What if I told you could feel this way every day? That instead of looking in your closet the next day and finding nothing to wear, you actually found another great outfit and felt amazing all over again! Imagine the effect this would have on your life? Wouldn’t you agree, then, that by simply seeing yourself differently you would act differently, and by approaching every day with confidence and self love your life would begin to shift? New opportunities will arise, people will begin to notice you and you will actually have the chance to show everyone what you can do! There is no denying that when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good your actions follow suit.
So I encourage you today to start loving yourself every single day whether it be speaking words of affirmation to your reflection in the mirror, exercising (even if it's just walking), drinking more water, reading, journaling or just a new pair of shoes. Do whatever you have to do just love yourself a little more every day because, it all starts with you!
I hope you found value from this post and clarity on where I stand when it comes to style. Stick around for more encouraging and real conversations such as this. Maybe not as long but you get the idea.
Now a question for you?
