A few weeks ago, I helped a friend figure out what to do with her summer clothing budget. She emailed me and said she didn’t have a lot to spend, but wanted to add some pieces to make her wardrobe feel fresh and to feel good about what she was wearing (isn’t that what we all want, really?).
So I took a look at her Pinterest board and gave her some shopping suggestions using outfits she liked or things she pinned to try. And for her, a lot of her outfits centered around the maxi skirt. One of the greatest wardrobe inventions: comfortable as pajamas, flattering on every body type, inexpensive, and effortlessly chic.
When I emailed her my suggestions, she thanked me for giving her permission to wear maxi skirts all summer. It made me smile to think how she’ll be spending her summer in clothes she loves, feeling confident and comfortable. And it got me wondering how many of us don’t wear something we want to because we’re waiting for permission. Waiting for someone to tell us it’s okay. Waiting for the go-ahead that will probably never come.
Is there something you wish you could wear? Something you’re dying to try but just don’t know how or what to wear it with? Do you want some help? Leave a comment or question below and I’ll try to help! Or do you just need some permission to step out of your comfort zone and try something a little different? I’d love to help you take the leap. (Unless it’s something like crop tops or short shorts. I’m not helping you jump toward those. Ever. Sorry.)
