Looking good is about feeling. So how are you feeling today?
The other day my coach told me a phrase I loved: Fashion and style are ALL about feeling.
I never thought about it that way but it’s totally true!
It’s about how you feel! Like everything is.
You don’t want the outcome, you want the feelings it gives you.
Do you want to feel beautiful?
Do you want to feel comfortable?
Do you want to feel abundant?
Do you want to feel creative?
Do you want to feel amazing?
You can do all of that with fashion and style.
And you can also do it without it, of course. But it’s just an easy and fun way to get there.
If you want to feel abundant, let me ask you this:
Are you not investing in your image and style because you think it’s not superficial?
Are you letting go of what you really want and love, like looking a certain way, having a certain type of clothes, having a certain style?
Do you feel you shouldn’t spend too much on clothes and style because you’re wasting money?
For many years I denied myself lots of things I loved, because society decided they’re not important enough.
Society says clothes are superficial, society says you shouldn’t care too much about what you wear – that’s vanity, that’s superficial, that’s actually a sin, now that I think about it. lol.
So what is vanity? I looked it up and it means “excessive pride in or admiration of one’s appearance or achievements”
Well I don’t know what you think, but for me it’s good to have some pride and admiration of one’s appearance and achievements
In excess it’s not that good, but isn’t it better to have excess pride in yourself, then excess criticism? And isn’t it criticism what we give ourselves the most?
What about futile? That’s a favourite word for fashion and style too.
Futile means: “incapable of producing any useful results. Pointless.”
If you ever wore an outfit that you really loved, and you felt amazing in it, you already know the useful result it produced ;)
So that’s my message for you today!
Own that you love style, own that you love beauty, own that you love clothes or that you just want to look great!
Know that style is important, fashion is important and it has significance and meaning.
Know that you can invest in your image and style and in new clothes and it is an INVESTMENT.
Know that you can buy new clothes even when you already have your closet full and that doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. It just means that you love fashion and you want to have new clothes that make you feel good.
You can spend your money in a lot of ways, and you’ll spend it for sure. At least the money you have decided to spend.
You can invest in traveling, in self-development, in going out for dinner, in anything you want.
And you can and are allowed to invest in new clothes, going to the hairdresser, getting a massage, getting your nails done, and any other beauty and style related activity ;)
Is that vain? Is that futile? Is that worthless?
Well, I don’t know about you, but for me…
I’m not letting some people that clearly can’t see style and beauty the same way that I do, rule my decisions and my life anymore.
Lots of love,
