It’s hard, right?
Dressing up is easily one of my favorite things to do. I don’t really need an occasion to get cute. I just love planning outfits, figuring out what lipstick to wear, and so on. Growing up, I was always that little girl who pretended to be Ann Margaret in Bye Bye Birdie when getting dressed everyday (if you haven’t seen that movie then shame on you.) I feel like what you wear says a lot about a person, so I always make an effort to try to look my best, even on days when I don’t feel like it.
I’m also very passionate about cute, modest fashion. Its so sad to see young girls and woman who feel like they have to dress like floozie to receive attention. That only shows that they really have no grasp on their self worth and confidence. The same can be said about girls who don’t put any care in their appearance at all. I truly believe that in putting 5-10 minutes into planning your outfit a day, the respect of the people around you will increase as well as your love for yourself.
Now getting to the point of this whole blog… CLOTHED MUCH! I found this modest fashion blog two(ish) weeks ago and am beyond beyond obsessed with it. Elaine of Clothed Much is my my fashion role model. I feel like her style would look good on pretty much any body type. It’s fun, modest, cute, sometimes casual, sometimes dressy, unique, easy, smart, hip, comfortable… someone stop me. I could go on and on… Each day I model my outfit after one of hers! (And the fact that she’s LDS totally rocks my world!)
My parting words to can be summarized in these 4 bullet points:
•You don’t need a special occasion to get dolled up. Smack on your favorite pair of heels, lipstick, dress- whatever! You deserve to feel special everyday!
•Ladies- on the first date, don’t feel like you have to “look cute” without looking like you’re “trying too hard.” Let him see the real you from the begining. Don’t try to be the girl he wants you to look like. Never sacrifice your fashion sense for a man. What do they know?!
•Modest is hottest.

…oh and on a theatrical fashion note, Friends Don’t Let Friends Wear Hooves. JUST SAY NO!
