Get ready for tomorrow today by putting more thought into your clothing and setting out tomorrow’s clothes and jewelry tonight. Also, put more thought into your makeup and hair choices before you go to bed.
For most people, getting ready in the morning is done in a hurry. It’s hard to be enthusiastic about your appearance when you’d much rather be back in bed.
But, despite my lack of morning cheeriness, I still know the importance of dressing the way I want to feel for my day. I might not be in that mood when I step out of bed, but putting on a fun ensemble is a good start to making my day great.
When you get dressed, ask yourself these questions to see what your clothes are saying about you:
- Do I wear too much black? Sure it’s slimming, but isn’t it a tad boring, and a tad too predictable? How can you add more color?
- Are my clothes baggy? What are you hiding from? Do you think big clothes help conceal your size? Did you know that big clothes simply make one’s body look bigger? Hiding in your big clothes isn’t helping.
- Are my clothes too tight? Do you need to invest in some new clothing pieces with your real size in mind? A few simple rules: your tummy probably shouldn't be showing (unless you’re at the pool), and if your pants give you “stomach overhang” you need to invest in some new ones.
From time to time, it's important to ask yourself if you are in a clothing rut. Remember, the way we dress is the way we present ourselves to the world. Represent your truest self by dressing the way you want to feel!
