Three Attitude Transforming Confidence Boosters
Today I woke up and felt all sorts of beautiful. I felt like the day was especially orchestrated for little ol' me. The sun was shiny and I had to respond to the private lavish invitation. There wasn’t anything “special” about this day. It wasn’t my birthday or any other major holiday. I hope you caught that. My birthday is a national holiday. That may be a Leo thing, but it’s been declared. Even if I’m the only one ready to close down the city in observance. I digress. Needless to say, nothing special was planned for this day. It was a sunny, yet cool Spring day in March. I had no major plans other than the usual uneventful tasks of taking the car to the mechanic, grabbing lunch, and getting some work done. Well, that’s exactly it, who says you need a special reason to be posh? Remember those childhood years playing dress up? I did just that. I grabbed my favorite skirt from ASOS paired it with black pumps and a crop turtle neck. By the way, this was my first time wearing a crop top. A friend and I met up for lunch. The first words uttered were, “Since when did you start showing skin?” I was cracking up! I’m bit of a conservative dresser so this was me stepping out of my comfort zone. I kept it classy though. Always keep it classy, ladies! From their reaction you would think I was half naked. Anyways, I then accessorized the OOTD with a bracelet, vintage clip-on earrings, a red watch, necklace, minimal make-up with a bold lippie, and a hat to hide the bantu knots I didn’t want to disturb.

When you’re reminded that you’re alive to see another day, you’re blessed beyond measure, and you feel a nudge to take it up a notch for the occasion. DO IT! Will folks look? Guaranteed. Will some think or even spit out, ”Hmm, you are doing the most right now.” Maybe. How should you respond? Unapologetically sashay to the left, sashay to the right, and keep it moving!
The opinion of others should NEVER play a role in aborting a harmless “I feel beautiful.” moment. Just go with it. Link up with the knowledge of who you are and don’t waste your valuable time responding to any questions along the lines of, “Why are you so dressed up?”
You have to own your personal style. Don’t simply accept your uniqueness. Embrace it willingly and enthusiastically.
