Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time on TikTok building up a fun + supportive community there along with sharing some current happenings in my life + also sharing some tips + tricks I’ve learned over the years. One of the many questions I’ve been asked over on TikTok + also on Instagram is how I Build Up My Confidence so I figured I would make a post about it since it’s a common issue everyone struggles with every now + again, even me!
KNOW YOUR STRENGTHS
No one is perfect and when it comes to building confidence sometimes you see your imperfections over your strengths and that is something that is key to tackle when trying to build your confidence. Make a list of the things you are great at from being a good friend, to having nice style, to being a hard workers…when you know your strengths it’s a lot easier to feel strength in being yourself + in turn being confident!
DO THINGS THAT BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU
Something that’s really helped me build my confidence up over the years is to embrace things that bring out my strengths. For me that is creating fun colorful content which I enjoy doing, working hard on my career where I make my clients happy by providing them great results + being a good friend and partner to my fiance and besties.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE THAT LIFT YOU UP
I am pretty independent but even when I feel strong on my own sometimes if I am feeling down it is great to have a strong support system that lifts me up. Even the most confident of people have their down days and how you handle yourself when you are sad and who you turn to make all the difference. Having supportive people around you that help add to your confidence and shine light on your strengths is something that truly helps you to build and maintain your overall confidence.
VISUALIZE YOUR GOALS + ACCOMPLISH THEM
One of the things that have made me confident over the years is setting goals + accomplishing them. There is something so satisfying about setting goals whether it be with your career, your health and well being, your personal growth + more and then working hard to make those goals happen! When you are able to accomplish what you set your mind to it leads to a great sense of self confidence!
The Love Shack Fancy for Target collection came in hot + sold out within a few days but I was lucky enough to snag a few of their gorgeous designs that are too cute to pass up. I have always been a fan of Love Shack Fancy but their price point is a bit high let’s be honest so when they collaborated with Target I knew now was my chance so I went all out, and this dress is currently ones of my absolute favorites!
I paired this dress with the Tory Burch Petite Lee Radizwill bag. I love this bag because I wanted to embrace the micro bag trend but still needed a little room and this bag works perfectly! It can fit your lipstick, phone, keys + more so it’s a micro bag that isn’t so micro!
I also styled this look with white pointed toe pumps, a total classic as well. They are a signature shoe that you need to have in your wardrobe because you will get so much wear out of it.
I always like to keep a positive outlook + bright perspective even when things are tough. While there is a lot of social unrest, COVID is making a second wave and things are all up in the air right now, one thing that keeps me happy and positive is dressing good which makes me feel good and almost always that includes a cute dress, a great pair of shoes + a little POP of color in the form of a fun accessory. That’s exactly why I love this look, it’s my instant ray of sunshine because when you look good you feel good (even if it is just to head to the grocery store or the post office hehe :p)
I am loving this white eyelet dress from Lovers + Friends via REVOLVE. The back ties up and the puff sleeves are a perfect summer accent. This dress is great for brunch with friends, date night + more so it is instantly becoming a summer fashion statement. I’m a firm believer every gal needs a little white dress.
4th of July is just days away + that means bring on the BBQ, fireworks, pies, and lots of patriotic outfits! America’s Birthday is one of my favorite days of the year + it brings back memories of when I was a child cruising around Long Island with my dad searching for fireworks at various beaches, such a weird feeling that a lot of the fireworks shows aren’t happening this year due to COVID but that doesn’t mean you can’t still celebrate with family + friends with a backyard BBQ or fun picnic etc!
Here’s some fun Patriotic Style Picks for you to rock this ⭐️ 4th Of July ⭐️
Things are starting to brighten up in the world! It’s PRIDE month, it’s summertime, lockdown orders are lifting, restaurants, stores etc are beginning to re-open + I’m beginning to feel a sense of normalcy again (hallelujah!) Last week was a heavy week, not going to lie. America is undergoing a lot of changes + growing pains hopefully leading to a stronger nation + unified people. Because last week was pretty emotional for us all my fiance + I decided to venture out for a little road trip + headed to Santa Barbara where we found this gorgeous photo moment!
I thought this spot was so cute to shoot this new Lovers + Friends dress I got from REVOLVE because who doesn’t love a rainbow. I also love this spot because this beautiful piece of artwork is made up of various colors, like our country. It takes different colors coming together to make up a beautiful rainbow, something we should always remember, when we come together beautiful things can form.
I paired this dress with my new RAYE wedges that are sure to become a summer staple for me because they match with every type of look + are super comfortable!
I also felt this look was the perfect time to bring out my new Louis Vuitton Escale Toiletry Pouch that sold out within days. Tie Dye is such a trend this season so I am loving this print from Louis Vuitton…how can you not!
Embracing color is something you should always do, especially this season…be BOLD, be YOU!
