Fake it Till You Make it

Top: Charlotte Russe (old), Dress turned Skirt: Francesca's Collection,
Necklace & Earrings: Kohl's, Shoes: Blowfish

I've heard this saying a few times before - fake it till you make it - then someone said it again this past weekend, and it's been stuck in my head ever since. If you've ever lost your way fake it for a little while and act like you know exactly what you're doing. You’ll finally get the hang of things again, and you’ll find your way. Honey, that’s what the professionals do. Confidence is key, and it breeds success. If you don’t have it, well, we’ve got to change that. If you believe you’re brilliant and can accomplish anything you set your mind to then you’re way ahead of the curve. Now show them who’s boss.

  6. I love the braid in your hair and the way you paired those wedges with that skirt--- it's so summer-y. And agreed: CONFIDENCE is KEY!

  9. I totally believe in that philosophy. If I'm feeling down, I try to dress nicely and/or wear bright colors to trick myself into feeling good.

  12. So true! And you know what? All those people who are usually really impressive and seem to have it together all the time 'fake' it a lot of the time too. There's no need to feel 100% confident/amazing all the time... just make sure you project it somehow :)

    And your outfit- too fun! The turquoise is a fantastic color on you :)
