Hi lovelies, what is confidence? Confidence is "a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities," according to the Merriam Dictionary. But I t really is so much more. It is the ability to feel happy with yourself and being ready for anything. Someone with confidence is positive and doesn't care what others think of them. So, I am sharing with you what outfit makes me feel the most confident and who empowers me to be confident. I will be contributing 10% of my sales from my blog on Dec 8-9 to Dress For Success, and ShopStyle will match 100% of my contribution. Dress for Success is an international not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
I feel like I learned confidence from my mom, my grandma (Yiayia Nitsa), and my great grandma (Yiayia Megali). They are always positive and they showed me how to find what makes me happy. My great grandma taught me how to sew and that's when I knew I wanted to be in the fashion industry, and she helps me find the confidence to keep working at my dream. My mom, who is my biggest supporter, gives me the confidence to try new things and always shows me positive side even when things are so negative. I am always getting positive quotes and images from my grandma who empowers me with love and support. These three people have made a huge impact on my life and I am so grateful for them. I hope you have someone who really empowers you to be your most confident self.
My outfit today is my go to outfit if I need a boost of confidence. I really believe what you wear can make you feel happy and strong. This outfit really makes me feel like I can take on anything. It is so comfortable and warm, which makes it perfect for the approaching Winter season. The statement piece is from Topshop. I love how it is so unique from anything else I have in my closet. I love the fringe and the neutral colors.
Next, are my favorite pair of skinny jeans. I am so picky I can only buy jeans from one brand -- American Eagle. Comment if you are like that, too. They stretch and are comfortable. If you haven't noticed, the main point in this look is to be comfortable and confident. Next, are the heels and I know you lovelies have seen these in another outfit post but they are amazing. They are really comfy but they dress up the look. I have four pieces of jewelry on for this outfit and they are all very beautiful. The necklace is from Greece but I will link a similar one. The earrings and ring are from Pandora and I think you have seen these in another post before. The bracelet is from a booth at a Christmas Shoppe I went to. My purse is from Vera Pello. It was from my godmother which reminds me of all my other godparents who inspire me. The list could go on forever. I am really lucky to have so many inspiring people in my life.
Thank you for reading this very long post. Check out the other bloggers who are empowering people. Comment who empowers you and your power outfit.
