My favorite part about fashion is how it makes you feel. I have different go-to pieces I use to switch up my mood. Stillettos bring me confidence. Blazers make me feel powerful. And feminine dresses make me feel pretty.
The other week, I was feeling a little down, so I thought about what I could put on to instantly elevate my mood. I was originally saving this dress for an event. But I decided why wait if I knew the moment I slipped it on I would smile?
Sometimes, reaching for a special event piece of clothing on a day there is no special event is exactly what you need for a mood boost. I know it worked for me. The lace made me feel soft and feminine, the bell sleeves made me feel fun and playful and the swinging skirt brought me back to my childhood, when all I’d want to do was twirl and smile.
Do you have a piece of clothing that instantly elevates your mood?
