Oh Happy Day

When I was in college, I used to force myself to wear nice clothes whenever I was feeling down.  It was hard to be motivated to get up early and fix myself up, but it always made me feel a bit better.  I recognized that if I wasn't feeling well and I looked like crap, it made me feel even worse.  Luckily, these days I don't have much to feel down about and I dress up because I like it.  I am a happy girl :0)  Some quick reasons why I'm feeling happy these days?  I've got a job that allows me to help others every day, I have wonderful friends who make me laugh so hard I almost pee myself (Allison and Karin, last night was hilarious!), I'm looking forward to a three day weekend, I have a handsome man who I love very much, two kitties who cuddled up with me all night, and a Cosby-esque family that never lets me down.

So, what about you?  Do you ever dress up to counteract a bad mood?

I dealt with this just this week. Felt like absolute crap, but dressed up my outfit with heels and a blazer. I felt much better.

I do the same thing to improve my mood, but often my focus is to wear "happy colors"

I always find that dressing up when I'm feeling down is the perfect pick-me-up! I love the color combos here. Indeed, you do have a lot to be happy for! Cheers!

What a lovely post! Being a fabulous blogger should be added to that list too! :D

And yes, sometimes I feel crummy and just want to show up to work looking like a slob but I force myself to look decent and I'm always glad I do!

I definitely dress up to motivate! Sometimes I'm not really feeling like running errands of going to work but, I can fake it with how I dress and no one is the wiser!
