5 ways clothes have nothing to do with appearance:

style tip Apr 22, 2021

 

1. They connects us to how we want to feel.

How do you want to feel for the day?

Want to embody a bad ass boss vibe? Want to feel more low key and comforting? Want to express your rebellious bold self? Want to feel more adventurous and fun today? Look at your closet and identify certain outfits or pieces that help you connect to how you want to feel for the day.

Bonus - Part 2: Weight & Food Freedom

"There's this idea that if we love ourselves, then we're only eating healthy food, exercising every day of the week; doing all these chores... To eat & exercise the way "they" tell us we should... I would argue that NONE of that is loving ourselves. It's not loving yourself if you're following someone else's rules of what you "should" be doing for your body. I would argue that that's abandoning yourself. Actually loving yourself is pausing every day and asking yourself how you feel and what you want to feel" ~ Roni Davis

Bonus - Part 1: Recovering from body dysmorphia & bulimia

"Our culture revolves around food and drink. You can't turn on the TV without seeing something about how someone looks. There's ads for every different way to exercise or food to eat.
