Happy Monday, ladies! Thank you for being here…I want to have a discussion today about how the purpose here is to help you have a goal to be uniquely you!
Let’s look at that word UNIQUE. Many of you are waking to find fresh fallen snow outside of your window.
Snow reminds us of the beauty of uniqueness…each snowflake is different and unique. That is so amazing when you ponder the wonder of it…every single one is different.
The definition of UNIQUELY is: being the only one of its kind and it is often paired with the words remarkable and extraordinary. (Love that!)
This blog has existed from day one to assist you in being uniquely you!
FASHION AND UNIQUELY YOU
Of course, the fashion industry exists because we are motivated to buy clothing we love and are drawn to.
There are many messages online like this:
5 Staples Every Woman must have in her wardrobe
5 trends you need to follow this spring
8 ways for every woman to look younger
You get the idea. I am here to say that EVERY WOMAN SHOULD NOT DO EVERYTHING!
Confident, joyful style comes from setting a goal to be uniquely you…understanding what that is…and not falling for the message that “every woman should do every thing.”
We all have fashion icons…including me.
Women we love the way they dress and we often attempt to emulate them.
I know in my own life…in my early 50s…this led to a problem. I would purchase clothing to look like women I admired and then when I put it on me, it just did not look the same.
Ultimately, this type of thinking will waste our money and our time.
That is why I am not here to seek out others who want to look like me…far from that.
I am here to motivate you to be UNIQUELY YOU.
One of the ways I do that is with the FOUNDATIONAL FIVE PERSONAL STYLE BUILDING BLOCKS.
It is a simple idea that I created to help us all to be unique and to enjoy our own unique style apart from the rest of the world.
You merely select five adjectives that you want to communicate to the world about you without speaking a word.
When you leave the house, what do you want your style to say about you?
My five adjectives…the five words I want to say with the way I look every day….are: JOYFUL, APPROACHABLE, CREATIVE, POLISHED, and CURRENT
I look in the mirror and ask myself…DOES THIS LOOK SAY TO THE WORLD THAT I AM THESE FIVE WORDS? If it does, then I am good to go!
This is how you develop a style UNIQUELY YOU that is confident style! It does make a difference in how you face the world each day…whether running errands or going out to dinner.
I believe focusing on what we want to say about us with our clothing brings much peace and replaces the anxiety of why we are not comfortable attempting to look like someone else.
I want you to enjoy your best life in this second half. I truly believe dressing to be uniquely you is a big plus.
Your five adjectives will be UNIQUE to you. Many readers here have chosen this method of dressing and found success with it as I have.
I am going to be speaking more often about this idea of how to be UNIQUELY You with your style.
I have some special ideas planned.
When I post a slideshow of clothing, I encourage you to use your five adjectives to determine if the clothing is right for you.
Of course, I appreciate you shopping through this blog for support through the SHOPPING LINKS, but I also encourage you to decide first what you want to say with your style.
Those messages will determine how you dress UNIQUELY YOU!
A reader request was to show garments in the PERIWINKLE Blue color of the year. Here is what I have located so far:
This color is not in my autumn color palette, but it is a lovely color for some of you to consider.
Thanks for being here…I would love to hear your thoughts….and remember a smile is your best accessory so always…..

Today is a very special day….nine years ago this freckled young man captured my heart when he entered the world.
He was our first grandchild and I honestly never knew how deep a love could go…and now it has gone 6X stronger with more grandchildren.
This one will always have a special place in my heart and my love for him always brings me to tears.
Happy Birthday, Luke. Pappa Joe and Gigi love you so much!
