Embrace Clear Thinking

Living Life Creatively, Style, The Perpetual YouCait SherrickComment

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

Living Life Creatively, Looks, StyleCait SherrickComment

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.

Searching + Bending

Living Life Creatively, ThoughtsCait SherrickComment

As a jewelry designer, I spend a lot of time searching for stones + bending metal. Searching for imperfectly shaped stones + bending perfectly shaped metal. Searching for the imperfect + bending the perfect. Searching + bending. Searching + bending.

We're always searching for something: space, connection, love, purpose. We search, we find, we bend, we grow. And then we search some more, find some more + bend some more. Endlessly searching. Endlessly bending. Endlessly growing. Endlessly living.

I don't think it's a coincidence that this life has led me to own my own business in which I quite literally search for and bend things all the time. Maybe it was a result of having to search, bend and grow so much within other areas of my life. Or maybe it was to prepare me to search, bend and grow more deeply moving forward.

Art imitating life or life imitating art.

The results are the same.

Search. Bend. Grow. Live. Repeat.
