You’ve probably heard it before… “Look good, feel good,” or maybe (for my college girls) “Dress well, test well.” I’m here to confirm this cliche.
Ok, I know, I know…barf right? WELL let me tell ya, as a full-time working woman, if there is one thing that gives me a little extra boost (besides my venti iced coffee from Starbucks–extra points if it’s cold brew) it’s 5000% what I’m wearing that day.
I can think of a few different examples right off the bat.
Come home from a long day at work, man that nine to five can reallllyyy take it out of a girl. So, here I am with a choice–I have been telling myself all day that I’d take my dog on a walk but then, out of the corner of my eye, the couch starts to call my name. Keep in mind, work clothes are about 10 seconds away from being thrown on the floor and swapped out for an XL comfort colors tee shirt from my college days.– So, again, here I am…Do I bum it? (yeah, we all have our moments) OR what’s that? Those new leggings and sports bra haven’t gotten any use… I go with the matching set and almost INSTANTLY I have a wave of energy. Not only do I get outside with the leash (& pup) in hand, but I am feeling myself, and instead of walking, I jog. It’s like magic!
It’s Monday (or Tuesday, Wednesday…you catch my drift) 6:30a.m. I want NOTHING more than to snooze my alarm and wake up at the absolute last minute I can to make it to work on time. I mean come on, who cares if I’m wearing the crinkled up tee shirt dress at the back of my closet, instead of that cute structured blazer with pencil skirt and freshly steamed shirt, right? WRONG. Ok, so some of you might be saying, “but Megan, I just don’t have time. Not everyone wants to dress like that.” To that I say, ok, fine…but trust me when I say that waking up a few minutes earlier or taking a tiny, little bit more effort to put on something you know will make you feel like a boss babe (maybe even get some double takes in the hallway) can seriously impact your whole attitude throughout the day.
Even if you don’t exactly relate to either of these examples, what it really all comes down to are the little things & taking the time to put effort into yourself FOR yourself. That’s the biggest part, FOR yourself. Remember, you are the one who has the power over how you seize the day, attitude, outfit and all. So, don’t let the details fool you, they make a difference.
Now go out there, put on your best outfit, and treat the world like it’s your runway!
