New Style Confidence
When I saw this week's Life Well Lived question about styling my look so I feel confident & ready for my first day, I was a little stumped because I am not in a stage of life where I have a "first day" (i.e. school, work, etc.) coming up. However, I am in a new-to-me stage where I am needing to alter my outfits for my growing bump, but still feeling confident & ready to face every day.
It hasn't been easy to find things that are 1. fit and 2. are comfortable and stylish. But while most of my pre-pregnancy clothes no longer fit, two areas of my closet have been my life-savers - jewelry + shoes.
I've written on my love of accessories before and I'm a firm believer that a statement necklace can easily turn a plain tee + jeans into a stylish outfit in an instant. I've also been trying to work in earrings and bracelets into the rotation to change things up a little. It always amazes me how different I feel when I am wearing jewelry vs. not.
Another one of my favorite pieces of my closet are my shoes. Luckily I haven't hit the stage where none of my shoes fit anymore, so the shoes I have invested in over the years are still adding something to my often-basic outfits. Some of my favorites include my ever growing collection of Toms and enjoying my sandal collection in the beautiful weather we are having.
