We’ve all heard the expression: You are what you eat. Nowadays, thanks to a more conscious lifestyle that we all chose to embody, we know that the adage also includes what we watch, listen to, read, and the people we surround ourselves with. Everything that we consume and participate in makes up the fabric of who we are. Speaking of fabric, what you wear also plays a big part in your mental and spiritual well-being. 

There is a vibratory frequency to everything. Have you ever felt down and used a little lipstick as a mood enhancer? Frumpy, so you added your favorite pair of shoes? We’ve all felt stuck, unmotivated, and unconfident in our lives, and I find the best way to shake up any mood that I’m in is to go for an outfit change!

Live your best dressed and most confident life with these three motivating factors. 

Dress for the job that you want, not the job that you have 

These days, traditional office jobs don’t look so traditional, and a lot of us are working from our kitchen table. While your morning routine may look like making your coffee and hitting the keyboards running, allow me to try to persuade you to take a moment to take off your PJs and find your self an OOTD. What we wear dramatically affects how we perform and how people perceive us (even on Zoom). Dressing “the part,” even from your living room, can help motivate you and cultivate an air of confidence that ultimately enables you to stay focused, especially when you work from home. 

I LOVE this casual Work from Home Look from Lilly Style 

You are what you wear

Getting dressed can help elevate your mood, which I know we can all use right now. Often, when people feel depressed or bad about themselves, they reflect those feelings in their wardrobe. Dressing well can help your psyche, make you more empowered, and have the confidence to control your life. It can help improve your outlook, and the positive feedback you receive from others can significantly improve your sense of self and overall happiness.

You never get a second chance to make a great first impression

Whether you like it or not, people judge by their first impressions of us. Mindful dressing helps attract friends, partners, and relationships that form our lives. By attracting others and developing meaningful relationships, you can reinforce dressing well and begin to improve your confidence.
