Do you see June busting out all over? It is just like that old Rogers & Hammerstein’s song from the musical Carousel. I may be dating myself, but every June I think of that song. The month of June always makes me feel like I am bursting with joy. I thank God everyday. I love the warm weather, not having to wear a coat, going for ice cream cones with my grandchildren, walking on the beach, watching sunsets, riding my bike. My list can go on and on. Every year I promise myself that this will be my best summer ever, but every year the summers go by faster and faster.
Please, don’t waste a single moment this summer. Enjoy yourself and really get to know you. Summer is the perfect time to get to know yourself better and love yourself more. Discover your personal style. Developing your signature style takes a little strategy. Play up your strengths. Your style is defined by you and only you. Next time you look in a magazine and see a picture of someone who has it all together and you think you want to look like that....STOP!
Don’t copy anyone. Let your signature style reflect who you are, not anyone else.
Next time you go shopping, don’t buy anything unless you absolutely love it. Don’t try to convince yourself. Whenever you feel the need to talk yourself into buying something, that is usually a sign that you shouldn’t buy it. If you are having doubt in the dressing room, take a picture of yourself. This is even more accurate than looking in a mirror. Your clothes should show what is beautiful about you.
Before you go shopping, take a good look in your closet. Do you have an excess of a certain item? Do you purchase the same thing over and over again? That is your sweet spot. Embrace it.
What is your signature item? Audrey Hepburn had her ballet flats, Jackie O. had her oversized sunglasses. All summer long you will see me in sparkle baseball caps. I like red lipstick and red nail polish too. Think about it. What is going to be your signature item this summer? Remember, repetition is reputation.
You know how great it would feel to be you this summer? My passion for fashion and my compassion to help women look and feel great is my purpose. So if you are having any trouble defining your style, just call me.
Wouldn’t shopping be a whole lot easier if you had a better idea of what style suited you best?
Let this month of June be the time for you, and you will be singing that song too.
