Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone!
Recently, I have discovered how much fashion has an impact on my self esteem and emotions. During these times, it is very hard to find occasions to get all dolled up. However, here are a few things that have helped me keep my confidence up without wearing makeup and jeans everyday!
Step 1, Loungewear.
Find some cute and cozy loungewear!! Right now, fashion companies are putting a large emphasis on loungewear because everyone is working from home! By wearing a cute set of loungewear, you will automatically feel more confident and productive.
2) Step 2, Jewelry.
Never underestimate the power of some simple jewelry! You may not even realize, but earrings really do make a difference. The minute I put on some cute earrings, a necklace and some rings, I am ready to start the day! As many of you may know, I am a huge hoop girl! One of my close friends recently invested in some hoops, and she told me she now understands my obsession! Hoops transform your look, and make you look like a bad b**** in the process!
Step 3, Take Pics.
Get dressed up for fun! Because there aren’t many places to go, (especially in Michigan) get dressed up and go take pics with your friends! It is so fun to get ready with friends and drive around looking for cute places to go. I can definitely say I have had more than one photoshoot in quarantine. And if you don’t like being photographed, just be yourself and have fun. Who says the pictures have to go anywhere? Just getting ready and feeling presentable is the goal:)
Step 4, Distance From Social Media.
Because there is not much going on in our day to day lives, it is easy to get wrapped up into instagram, snapchat, tiktok, etc. As you all know, this can be detrimental to our mental health. By comparing yourself to insta models or famous tiktokers you are constantly tearing yourself down. You may not even realize you are doing it! This is why it is super important to make sure you are creating time for yourself. Whether it is journaling, art, sports, or listening to music, having an outlet to just think is extremely important for your confidence.
Step 5, Wear What You Want.
I cannot emphasize this enough, wear what is going to make YOU feel the most confident! It is so important to feel comfortable in your own skin. The only way to truly do so is to wear what makes you feel YOU! (as you can probably tell, I feel very passionate about the YOU) My biggest piece of advice to shoppers is to wear what you will feel most comfortable in. If you are in love with an outfit, you will automatically radiate that confidence. I truthfully think fashion has significantly impacted my confidence growth. So, moral of the story, you do you! Wear that dress that you love, buy those shoes that you can’t stop thinking about, you deserve it.
I hope these tips can make quarantine and this year a little easier:) Thank you all for reading, it means the world<3
