Happy Monday guys! I’d like to start the week off on a high note – let’s talk about confidence. There are definitely days when I don’t feel like my best and last week was just that. I was just not a hundred percent. But I want to change that this week and really turn my energy around. And the most effective way I know how is by dressing up.
Whether I’m only going to work, a brunch date with some friends, or a really important meeting, looking put together makes a world’s difference. It’s crazy to think that such simple things can uplift your mood but it’s so true! When I leave the house wearing a power outfit, it definitely makes me feel like a million bucks and that I can do anything. So here’s what a power outfit that exudes confidence looks like to me.

Confidence isn’t just about how you look like on the outside. It is also about how you feel like on the inside. And to me, wearing something powerful even underneath it all is a confidence booster right from the get-go – especially during those times when a woman feels the least bit sexy.

I’m a firm believer of dressing for your body type. Yes there may be some trends that you’d love to wear, but if it doesn’t work for you then don’t force it. I’ll let you in on a secret – for years, this has been my biggest issue. For a very long time I have been so uncomfortable in my own skin and how my body looks. I’ve been meaning to start a style column and show a little bit more of myself and my day-to-day style in this blog. However, because I’m self conscious of my body image, I just avoided the subject altogether.
But now I realized that I must work with my body instead of against it. All of us women are built differently. There was never a one-size-fits-all formula for women. Our differences make us beautiful and that uniqueness is the core of our confidence.
So to celebrate women, I’ll be taking over Dear Kate’s Instagram today and tomorrow for a short series featuring confidence. If this is your first time hearing about Dear Kate, it’s a lovely underwear line created by chemical engineer, Julie Sygiel, to give women underwear that is built to keep up with their busy lives. Dear Kate uses materials (patent pending) to create panties that are strong but still sexy and are sure to cover all of life’s mishaps. It’ll be lots of fun so be sure to follow along!
And to make sure we all start the week strong, I ask you this: What makes YOU feel confident?
