Wouldn’t it be fun to wake up every day and put on something you love? Wouldn’t it brighten your day and make you feel buoyant? It would be like Valentines Day in your closet.
That experience is absolutely possible.
I’ve got a few ways you can use that powerful love force and infuse your wardrobe with it so you’re happy to meet the day.
Shop for what you love
In order to have a wardrobe that’s filled with what you love you may need to change up your shopping habits. If you’re shopping on the run, you may be grabbing “just any old thing” rather than allowing yourself the time to try things on, look in the mirror and ask yourself the question, “Do I love this?” Or if you are taking the time to try things on, are you settling for the same old thing instead of exploring new possibilities? The best thing to do is give yourself some time to explore and have fun with clothes. Don’t settle for “okay” when you could enjoy clothing pieces and accessories that put a smile on your face every time you wear it.
Insist on wearing the colours you love most
Sometimes people will surround themselves in the colours they love when they’re decorating their home. While having wall paint or bed linens in your favorite colours is fabulous, how about having an ample amount of clothing pieces in your favorite colours? Or while you’re waiting to save up for the navy blue tufted velvet couch, find a top, pant or dress in navy blue and enjoy that colour right now. Be up-to-date with your love of colour. Maybe you used to be crazy about white but now you’re crazy about purple. You don’t have to buy a whole new wardrobe in purple. You can buy a few pieces that will satisfy you. This Spring’s pantone colour is Ultra Violet Purple.
Highlight a loved feature of yours
While much of the time we seem to focus on figure challenges, it’s great to take a break from that and focus on features you love about yourself. Maybe it’s your décolleté. Are you wearing pieces that flatter your chest? Wear flattering blouses or dresses with great necklines. A secret to one woman’s style is to focus on her long legs. She wears pants in all kinds of fabrics like lace, velvet, and jacquard. You have the power to direct attention wherever you want to. The bonus is that by focusing on what you love, those challenges just fade away.
On a scale of one to ten with ten being totally satisfied with your wardrobe and one being not at all satisfied, where does your wardrobe stand? Bringing some loving attention to it could be what’s needed to bring that number up to a resounding ten.
