I'm Taking a Vacation Day! What am I Wearing?
OKAY! ENOUGH, I HAVE TO TAKE A VACAY DAY, A DAY TO NOURISH MY SOUL, CALM DOWN, NURTURE MYSELF. WHAT SHALL I DO WITH THIS FULL GLORIOUS DAY?
WILL I GO TO THE BEACH AND WADE AS FAR OUT AS I CAN WITH MY PANTS ROLLED UP? SHALL I READ THAT BOOK I HAVE BEEN PUTTING OFF? MAYBE I WILL GO TO THAT PARK I LOVE, WHERE I CAN WALK BACK IN THE WOODS SAFELY WITH THE OUTDOOR HIKERS ALL AROUND?

Embrace Your Inner Goddess: The Power of Dressing Up at Any Age
Ladies, listen up! In a world that often seems obsessed with youth and perfection, it's easy for us to feel like we're losing our sparkle as we age. But let me tell you something: age is just a number, and there's no expiration date on feeling beautiful and confident. As we get older, we've earned every wrinkle and gray hair, and it's time to embrace them as badges of honor. One of the simplest yet most powerful ways to reclaim our confidence and reconnect with our inner goddess is through the act of dressing up.
Hey! There are countless studies that color supports positive moods and can bring a sense of peace, joy, courage or calm.
If you feel under the weather in a No-Can-Do slump, take a look at your wardrobe and take a "picture" an emotional "picture of your color palette." as it hangs on the closet rods....
Are the colors dull, dark, slumpy? (in an emotional context) then it's time to CHANGE your wardrobe - bring in sunny yellows, encouraging oranges, firery reds, colors that LiFT your spirit and make you happy.
