Today I’m excited to be partnering with ShopStyle for a special campaign in partnership with Dress for Success, an international non-profit that empowers women to thrive in work and in life. Today and tomorrow, I will be donating 10% of net sales from my blog to Dress for Success, and ShopStyle will match 100% of my contribution. As part of this campaign, I wanted to share a bit about what makes me feel confident and empowered.
When I think about people who have empowered me, the person who has done so the most consistently and significantly is my husband Brian. He believes in me when I don’t believe in myself, gently pushes me towards reaching my potential, and reminds me that I am capable of much more than I realize. I’m so thankful to have him by my side, as a spouse and now as a business partner.
As far as confidence goes, I don’t know that I really have a specific power outfit, but I do certainly have a power color: black. I’m sure if someone psychoanalyzed that choice they probably would discover something terribly wrong with me, but the reality is, black is my favorite color to wear. It feels bold in a subdued way (if that’s even possible), and I love the way it allows me to accessorize according to my mood. Although I certainly wear other colors (white, grey, tan…haha), it’s what I wear when I have no idea what to wear because I know it’ll make me feel like myself. It’s a recipe for success, every single time. Plus, it makes my jewelry stand out even more 😉
