Dress to feel best



I've blogged before about overcoming a bad day/week/experience by dressing to feel your best - this outfit was definitely an attempt to make the best of things. I have to say, no matter what I'm feeling like in the morning (I am a terror in the morning), if I can just get myself into an outfit that I can feel chic and confident in... it really does take my day in a different direction.  Also, LOVE the fact that this outfit is suuuuper comfy.  *smile*

I sincerely believe that looking great helps you feel great. Try it sometime :)








Urban Outfitters dress, F21 jacket and necklace, Spanx tights (FYI - favorite tights ever), Michael Shannon ankle boots, Michael Kors watch, DG sunglasses from TJ Maxx, Francesca's Collection clutch , J Crew iphone cover

  5. It totally works. I used to do this in college on test days. It definately makes you feel more confident and less tired if you are dressed cute. Just the inspiration I needed to dress up today.

  14. I totally get it. What I wear can have everything to do with how I feel. And you do look great! Love the patterned tights. I haven't pulled any out yet but it's almost that time!

  15. I completely agree! There's nothing worse than having a bad day and feeling frumpy and awkward to boot. It was one of those for me today and I really wish I'd pulled on something other than jeans and a t-shirt.

  20. I think between looking great and all the great comments you get when you dress fabulous, you'll eventually feel great. It's like that idea of smiling even though you don't feel like it, it'll change how you feel and might make you happier. I love the tights BTW!

  35. I definately agree, if you look better, you feel better or just the fact that others won't notice that you're having a bad day helps.

    love how you mix all the different fabrics and prints, but it still matches really well
