There are things that make us instantly feel better. Whether it’d be favourite colour, favourite perfume or a piece of jewellery that has a special meaning, using these things has a special “power”.
For me, some of those things are the colour pink, Chanel Chance perfume and my YSL Arty ring. I’ve had that ring over ten years now and wear it every day. I don’t leave the house without it and when I do I don’t feel myself.
I have a lot of perfumes and wear them according to my mood but Chanel Chance is one I have been wearing for years. When I have an important meeting, a date or don’t feel quite myself, that’s the one I reach for. It has a familiarity that to me is empowering and lifting. I always feel certain way wearing it. I feel my best.
And of course the colour pink. I am always drawn to it subconsciously. It’s a happy colour and puts a smile on my face. Some days I wear a lot of pink and some days I wear very little but I definitely feel better when I wear more of it. It is my signature and it has an effect on my like few things have. It’s a mood and confidence booster.
Take this dress for example. It has many ingredients I love – I shared my appreciation for pleats already here, and the colour and length are very me. Although this is not a shade of pink I wear a lot (I tend to go for softer blush pinks) it definitely makes me feel better and more confident.
When I was moving recently, I went through a very stressful period. I didn’t exactly plan the move and it all happened very quickly. In times like these I rely on these things that feel familiar and make us feel better. There are more and I think we all have them and thank goodness. Life goes up and down. We all go through happy periods and times when life feels a bit tough. It’s good and important to have a strong support group of friends and family but also little things that make us feel US even when everything feels wrong.
What are some of the things that make you feel yourself?
Have a stylish day.
