Just by chance, this week has turned out to be all about confidence.  (love the quote above from life coach, Tia Sparkles)   How we dress can reflect whether or not we feel confident…you know, it’s a different take on the phrase if you’ve got it, flaunt it.  My take?  You’ve all got it, so flaunt it!

Ralph Lauren denim skirt: Macys
Wool jacket: Goodwill SA
Scarf: Chicos

The most powerful garment in my closet, as far as I am concerned, is a pencil skirt.  There is just something about wearing a great fitting pencil skirt which makes me feel strong, dignified, in control!  This particular skirt is powerful for me, because about three months ago, I could not wear it…too tight!  YES!  Fits now! 

Garments can give us that extra edge with how we approach life….one of my readers commented on FB she recently had the courage to buy leopard flats! Congrats to Rita, you rock those flats with a smile!  There have been so many comments from new readers this week and I want you to know how much I appreciate each one of you!  Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this blog.

There is so much more I want to do and experience…so much more I believe I can do.  I rarely think about my age…very few circumstances make me feel old.   I am excited about what the next year holds…(I just need to get through the next few weeks!)  But, if I can wear skirts like this, I will face any situation feeling confident!

Now, please visit the confident ladies of Katie's Favorite Things Blog Hop! and have a wonderful day!!

Ta Da!  The winner of the fun Lettuce Stitch Skirt is reader Renee!!  Thanks for entering....I hope you enjoy your skirt!  Please stop by on Monday for another fun fashion giveaway from Soft Surroundings!
