"All you really need is loads of self- confidence...and a smile." Ines de la Fressange
I love this quote from Ines because I believe it to be so true. Really, you can wear and pull off just about anything with self-confidence and a smile. During my 40s, my self- esteem was in the gutter. I allowed it to overshadow each clothing choice I made….my clothes sent a strong message of “I DON’T CARE!” And I honestly believed because I was overweight, unhealthy, and exhausted I would not look good in anything…even if Michael Kors walked into my house in person and said he was there to dress me head to toe!!
I do not miss those days at all. But, the only thing that has really changed is my attitude. Oh sure, I have lost a little weight; am on the road to a healthier me; and maybe go to bed a little earlier…but overall, I am still the same. The biggest difference is that now I am having fun with my fashion as opposed to beating myself over the head with it. I am determined to have more positive thinking days than negative (notice I did not try to convince you that I am 100% positive all of the time) and I am determined to smile more than I frown.

Once I discovered how I react to my circumstances is my choice, I was able to turn it around. Now, I can look at a great trend like EQUESTRIAN and really have a lot of fun.
Have a wonderful Tuesday everyone! Did anyone score big at sales the past few days?
