Unleash A Trend

Style, The Perpetual YouCait SherrickComment

You know the feeling.

Maybe you’ve been through something traumatic recently, maybe you had to tuck part of yourself away so you could be a “better” wife, maybe you’re covered in spit-up and pureed green peas.  You’re feeling all the feels and wondering how any one human can even contain that many different emotions at once. You’re feeling pretty much everything but feminine.

You grasp at anything to feel more like a woman, more like a human: that soy latte, some pink peonies, even a lacey bralette. And that’s ok. Buying into a trend to feel a little more feminine is okay. You’re not drinking 3 soy lattes a day, buying out the entire flower section, and wearing a bralette every day. Right?

Or maybe you are. However you get back to feeling feminine is completely up to you.

Sometimes life can feel like it stripped you of everything you know about yourself, and if all it takes is one lacey something to bring you back to your whole, feminine self, then buy the damn bra. In the meantime, just know that feeling all of those emotions at once is what femininity is all about. No matter what, you’re always feminine.

Embrace Clear Thinking

It’s not the state of your closet, it’s the state of your mind.

You wake up feeling exhausted already, and move in super slow motion while getting ready. You open your closet doors and sigh-- you literally have nothing to wear. An hour later, your entire closet is strewn about your room and you’ve changed outfits multiple times only to finally settle on something that makes you feel harried and eh.

We blame our clothes, because obviously life would be so much easier if your closet looked like a Pinterest account. Amiright? Here’s the thing, my love. You’re hot and stylish and you have a closet full of great clothes. Your dissatisfaction isn’t your wardrobe’s fault.

Moments like the one above are triggered by plain old exhaustion, which Is when negative self-talk can kick into high gear. When we’re well-rested and make self-care a priority, we naturally choose to believe positive things about ourselves, and these crazy closet moments don’t happen.

Something as simple as going to bed earlier can naturally boost your mood, strengthen your confidence, and tap into your inner calm. Routine self-care readies us for the mornings that don’t go our way. Because if we don’t feel good about ourselves, especially on those mornings, we can't feel good about anything else—not even a Pinterest-worthy outfit.

Choose to Have Options

Personal style is just that: personal. And when something is personal it’s always right.

Confession: while the purpose of this blog post, my instagram feed and even the Looks page on my website is to give you easy, intentional style tips, the truth is there’s no right or wrong way to get dressed in the morning. There’s no right or wrong way to style a t-shirt, there are no right or wrong shoes to wear with those pants, and there is no right or wrong way to layer that sweater.  There are no real rules in style, only possibilities.

When you look at everything with possibility, your options are endless.  Suddenly, you have 25 different ways to style that t-shirt. You realize that you can wear a different pair of shoes with those jeans every day of the week and, magically, your sweater layers perfectly over everything from a tank top to a button down.

From choosing the color of your t-shirt to deciding how to tie your scarf; from choosing the style of your shoes to deciding how to tie them; from choosing the wash of your jeans to deciding how to layer your jacket, you have options. Acknowledging your options keeps your personal style full of potential.
