I know I've mentioned this countless of times, but whenever I'm standing in front of my closet in the morning, all hip-shot and messy haired, I can't get over how different my style has become.
I've found that now everything is picked out according to my feels. And not just what my mood is that day, but how do I feel while wearing it. The best way I can describe it is when I was in a Forever 21 dressing room about a month ago, trying on this flaired-leg jumpsuit. It was a simple number, with tiny roses scattered down its length and a deep v-cut slicing through the back. It wasn't a show stopper. It wasn't something that would catch your eye and make you want to press your nose up against the display glass. Which is why when I slipped it over my shoulders and zipped it up the side, I was unassuming. And when I smoothed it down and glanced up in the mirror, I was floored. I felt....gorgeous. Like, I'm pretty sure I could get free coffee today, gorgeous. Or, Yea, I think I'll have that stranger on the train propose to me right now, gorgeous. I couldn't tell you why, but something about that piece just made me feel the way a sigh sounds. And so I snapped it up.
And that's how I dress now. I don't buy a single thing unless there's some sort of zing that follows it. Because if you feel like doing an excited little shimmy every time you look in the mirror, how can your day possibly be anything but overwhelmingly amazing?!
