"What's wrong with being c o n f i d e n t ?" - Demi Lovato

There's nothing I love more than when the weather shifts from winter to spring. + trust me, we had the L O N G E S T W I N T E R E V E R in Michigan. {Spring finally showed up last week!} Something about the extra boost of vitamin D makes me instantly start feelin' myself + embrace my true personal style. {I'm convinced that I'm solar powered!} Before you run out + purchase all of the spring style trends {I'm talking to you gingham print}, let's chat about the one MAJOR style mistake you're making this season. Something that's even more important than what you are currently wearing - C O N F I D E N C E !

Why Confidence Is Important
You need confidence first to feel as beautiful as you look. You can have the best pieces in your wardrobe, but if you don't feel comfortable in them people will pick up on that IMMEDIATELY. Confidence is the most important accessory you own. Once you master that, your personal style will follow. 

Create Your Style Uniform
I don't know how many times I can stress this {apparently at least four here, herehere, + here}, but a style uniform is a MAJOR confidence boost! It's a no fail outfit that looks amazing on you 100% of the time. It brings out your inner + outer beauty because you feel most comfortable head to toe. I personally have a few style uniforms, but my favorite for the spring/summer season is the jumpsuit! Nothing has me "feelin' myself" more than this season's hottest trend. Plus, it's a look that does all of the style work for you {no need to match a thing}! I scored this jumpsuit from Target over the winter for, wait for it, $8.98! {Yes you read that correctly.} If the price tag wasn't enough, it fits perfectly + also screams my personal style aesthetic - streamlined with a little bit of edge. Add a statement earring + a bold lip + I'm my best self...always.

Focus on Self Care
Self care is a key confidence builder, no matter what your current lifestyle is. As a busy mom, I have found that this is the most important factor of my personal life. Taking care of myself keeps me sane, balanced in every aspect of my day, and feeling my absolute best. Whether that's sipping coffee or wine in silence, treating myself to a much needed manicure, tuckin' on the beat at 5:45am in barre class, taking the nap even though there's tons of laundry to be done, or binge watching The Office {again} on Netflix - staying in tune with what I personally need brings out the best version of me. {More on self care here, here, + here.}

When you "strip down" the trendy wardrobe + even the glam side of self care, where does your positivity lie? I can honestly say this has always been hard for me to master. Sometimes it's easy to get down on ourselves for all of the things we aren't doing, that it's hard to celebrate what we are doing right. I'm here to tell you to STOP IT! Accept that compliment from a stranger when you are browsing the aisles at Target, jot down something awesome that happened to you throughout your day, or find that one thing you love about yourself + play up that feature when it comes to your personal style or beauty routine. When you can look at yourself in a more positive light {even with all of the flaws you think you have} your confidence can't help but shine through!
