Pop of Pink + Thoughts on Confidence

Pink Dress and Faux Fur

I wore this look on Saturday night out to dinner with a few blogger friends that were in town. I knew it was going to be cold so I wanted to dress warm but still look chic – how do you think I did?

I’ll be honest – fashion week this year was a double-edged sword for me. Normally I look forward to the mayhem and seeing out of town blogging friends, but this year I actually felt myself sort of dreading the whole thing. I knew I wouldn’t be able to attend many events or shows – most happen during the work week and I like my weekends to recharge and work on my blog – not run around the city in freezing temperatures. Going into this fashion week I knew I was going to be taking a step back and I was okay with that. But then of course the inevitable happened – I looked on Instagram, Twitter and started feeling down. Yesterday morning I woke up and my confidence was just totally down the drain. Part of me was kicking myself for not making more of an effort to actually get out there to the shows, promote my blog and expand my network. The other part of me was kicking myself for feeling guilty about not doing that in the first place. So what did I do? I talked it out with Nick (he always puts things into perspective) and looked up some inspiring quotes on confidence. Here are some of my favorites:

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”

“Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.”

and my favorite…

“The more you love your decisions, the less you need others to love them.” 

SO that is my personal mantra for the week and for you guys! If you have any advice for me or tips on how to maintain confidence I would love to hear your thoughts. And a big thank you again for reading! xo
