“Enthusiasm is excitement with inspiration, motivation, and a pinch of creativity.”

-Bo Bennett quote

How’s your enthusiasm today?? Does your outfit of choice reflect that you are excited to be here or does is say sad and depressed? Sometimes our clothes will be a window into our spirits…I know, because for most of my 30s and 40s I communicated depressed, sad, stressed out, frumpy…I Don’t Care!

Now, my goal each day is to communicate enthusiasm and joy. I do love to look with excitement around me for inspiration with style; and I really never know where it will come from. Today, it came from my hat rack, which is home for all of my scarves. I can see it while I am in the shower and there are times that just one scarf will grab my attention and beckon me to style around it….exactly what happened with this look.

Blue Cardigan: Stein Mart
White Lane Bryant Blouse: Goodwill
Ann Taylor Scarf: A gift
Lee Slimming Jeans:  Kohls
Ballet Flats:  Target


Remember, Deborah Long Shirley  from my recent post about statement necklaces? She is the one who gains inspiration from the stones and pendants she finds for her one-of-a-kind necklaces. She was present at the trunk showing for the W line by Worth Spring Collection, because she designs necklaces to go with the styles in the line…isn’t that fun? I saw a purchase made with a dress and necklace to match while I was there…it just makes sense to show them together! Here are some of the beautiful looks she brought to the show…including a special selection for San Antonio’s upcoming Fiesta celebration!! Debby lives life with enthusiasm and crates of creativity…not just a pinch!!

 Finally, a quick review!

Yesterday, I watched the premier of ABC TV’s new show, The Revolution, and I have to say I will be setting the DVR to catch this one every day.  It is about a message that my blog revolves around: Reinvention….and that it is possible for all of us ready to make positive changes in our lives.  That is why I began writing here.  Perhaps, they need to tone down all of the audience clapping a little…but the information and testimonies were really encouraging and, yes, ENTHUSIASTIC!!  Also, kudos to Macy’s for sponsoring the fashion segments!

Are you dressing with enthusiasm today??
