I’ve began so many different times in so many different ways over the last few years, that I’ve lost track of the beginnings. Some were involuntary (most of them were, if I’m being totally honest) + some were voluntary, the follow-your-heart-even-if-it-doesn’t-make-sense kind of voluntary.

Involuntary, voluntary...it doesn’t really matter. Because every time I begin, it feels a little less uncomfortable, a little more free + a whole lot more right.

Right. That’s what we’re all hoping for really. We all want change, we all want our beginnings to feel right. To feel alright. To feel correct.

Whether we realize it or not, it’s always correct. It’s always alright. It’s always right. It’s just hard to feel it when we’re in the thick of it.

So I begin. Again + again + again + again + I will keep beginning every time, because it feels uncomfortably, comfortable. Because it feels free. Because it just feels right.

Celebrate Warm Layers

Short on time? Short on motivation? Throw a little self-care into your style choices.

When was the last time you took a moment for yourself? When you’re constantly on the go for your kids or your business or your day job, it’s easy to be so wrapped up in life, you lose sight of your joy. People rely on you, dreams need to be nourished, bills need to be paid. Your needs just aren’t a priority right now. I get it, babe, I really do.

Here’s the thing, though. The only way you can provide for your kids or your dreams or your job is if you make sure to provide for yourself first. You can’t give something you don’t have. And the only one who can take care of you the way you need to be taken care of while you’re constantly on the go is YOU.

Tap into some warm layers so you can feel (and share) joy more freely. Layer a puffy vest over your plaid shirt. Throw a cardigan over your favorite t-shirt. Wear a big blanket scarf with just about everything. Better yet, wear two big blanket scarves with just about everything.

Putting yourself first when making style choices is an easy yet empowering form of self-care. You can make any outfit YOURS simply by choosing things you want to wear because you want to wear them. When you put yourself first in this way, it’s fulfilling and authentic and a heck of a lot more joyful to take care of all the things.

Unleash Something New

Style, The Perpetual YouCait SherrickComment

Nothing’s stopping you except yourself.

I prefer clean lines over ruffles, buttons over bows, and neutrals over pinks. I'm a bit more creatively minimalist than I am traditionally 'girly' when it comes to my sense of style. Until recently, sort of. Let me explain.

This past spring, Target had these adorable gray and white striped pajama shorts hanging near the main aisle; you know, right by the register so you can’t NOT see them. Every time I’d pass them, I’d lovingly oogle them, touch them, check the price, and then put them back. I’d put them back every single time because they had ruffles on the bottom hem.

Did I mention that I’m anti-ruffle?

After weeks of the same “oogle, touch, check the price” routine, I up and bought them. I was so over my self-imposed ruffle limitation. I bought them because it’s important to try new things, because trying new things in small ways with small details is much less scary than diving head first into a fully ruffled top, because exploring new details in style can bring out a whole new side of you.

Ruffled pajama shorts, sweatshirts with lace, flared jeans… whatever detail you choose to try out this month, know that—by doing so—you’re indulging your sense of curiosity. Have a little courage, trust yourself.  Push yourself outside your comfort zone. And do it softly, gently. I guarantee you’ll like who you are out there, ruffles and all.
