Some Thoughts on Self Care

Happy Sunday everyone! This week has been one seriously emotional roller coaster. And while it’s been a little rough, it has also reminded me of the importance of self-care. From getting your nails done, to snuggling with your doggie, to taking steps to improve your health, to relaxing in a warm shower, to looking at pictures of puppies on the internet-self-care is amazing. And while I do do all of the aforementioned I’ve started realizing I’ve started using fashion as a form of self-care lately.

All of of which have significantly boosted my ability to deal with life and take everything as it comes…and take it from this life-long worry wart, that’s not small feat.

I totally and completely recommend that you wear at least one outfit this week that makes you unbelievably happy because it definitely makes a difference in your day (just ask Marci who has been rebelling against her work dress code…that’s rough over there!)

Have a great start to the week guys and smile big as you throw on those chunky sweaters/leggings/amazing heels/embellished tees/what have you.
