I'm back with some fashion and faith inspo for you! The thing I love about getting dressed is that it instantly lifts my mood. I am a huge proponent for the notion that you should always look your best. You never know who God will put on your path, so it's best to leave your home looking the part everyday. Some days will call for workout gear, while others call for a dress shirt and pants. The important thing is how you put yourself together. The goal for me is that I am always put together and confident, regardless of what I have on.
What has happened to me in the past is that I always run into someone I know, or someone important when I look 'bummy'. I always kick myself after the encounter wishing I had put the extra effort into how I looked before leaving the house. I also wanted to remind you all that it is not about how much you spend on your clothing (although there are some exceptions to this thought), but how you pair items.
This affordable dress and pair of shoes was paired with a luxury handbag and bracelet. When all the pieces come together you'd think I spent a whole lot on the look. (I'll do another post in the future about what you should spend more money versus less money on...)
I'm partnering with Zaful for this look today. All of my friends will receive a 10% discount, by using the code: ZFNancy on your next order!
Ultimately, though, you want to work on feeling good from the inside out. In my opinion, it's hard to work on your confidence without first having identity. For me, I find identity in who God says I am. On days when I feel horrible or less than confident, I reflect on what He says about me.
His word says, "For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works my soul knows it very well". (Psalms 139; 13-14, ESV)
