This lime green turtle neck dress from Fashionnova takes me out of my comfort zone in only the best of ways.
I love that despite it’s color, it is still very modest — I had know worries wearing this to church. At first I felt like a giant highlighter, but my confidence grew little by little. Trust me, if you’re going to wear something this ‘eye-catching’, you have to have the confidence to match.
I’m a firm believer that there’s a learning lesson in anything. Have you ever worn something, or had to do something, that stretched you outside of your comfort-zone? It’s funny how small things — even fashion — can help you to grow and learn new ways to love and embrace who you are, and where you need to ‘grow’ some more.
It’s not the dress that wears you, you wear the dress. Whether it’s a lime green dress or nothing at all, I hope you will learn to feel confident regardless of what you wear. Love like that only comes from the inside out.
So here’s what I want you to do: Wake up a little early tomorrow. Stand in from of the mirror, no makeup, no sprucing up. And tell yourself I love you three times…maybe even more. Our minds are records, and just like listening to the radio, the more you hear these words, the more you will begin to repeat them without even thinking — and believe them.
Until next time,
