I've spent my whole summer at the dentists office. This time I picked up the August issue of Vogue while I was waiting and came across this quote that really spoke to me:
"It took American woman awhile but we've finally taken on board a certain truth: How we feel about ourselves has more than a little to do with how well we care for ourselves. And that most definitely includes how we dress. Style isn't imposed on us by the establishment it's a daily affirmation of - well - our joie de vivre. We are each a painted butterfly with a different pattern on our wings."
For me, it's been really interesting to see how what's going on in my life effects my personal style - particularly what's happening with my self esteem and how I'm really feeling inside. Clothing is my way of expressing how I feel to the world - and lately there's been a renewed sense of excitement, sophistication, confidence and groundedness in how I've been expressing myself outwardly. And it feels good.
