Your clothes form part of representing who you are. It serves as a powerful expression of individualism that creates an impression on everyone you meet. Therefore, knowing and understanding your Personal Style is important. However, this is not always easy, and in most cases, finding your Personal Style and what works best for you is an ongoing journey. The type of clothes you liked last year may not be the same you like this year, and that’s perfectly ok. The most important thing is to wear clothes that you’re comfortable in and make you feel good about yourself. Knowing your Personal Style and being able to put outfits together that best represent you can be an enormous confidence booster!
Think about celebrities or characters from movies and TV shows that you like
Are there any outfits that your favorite celebrity or TV character wore that you like? Is there a specific historical era that you love, and do you like the clothes from that era? Considering these questions can be a good starting place to figure out what sort of styles catch your eye. You can look online if you want to find an exact or similar piece that someone wore, or you can look for clothes that are reminiscent of the outfits your favorite character wears. There are lots of social media pages, especially on Instagram, that document the clothing that celebrities and characters wear, and some even include details on where to find specific pieces.

Every business owner has a lot of priorities to juggle and managing how to balance all of these priorities is definitely an art form. If you follow me on social media, you know that not only do I own and manage Striving For Modesty, I am also the owner of Striving For Clarity and Flawless Academy. Alongside all of this, I recently joined the leadership team of an all-women travel company, Girls LOVE Travel as their Community Development Manager. On top of all of this, I still have my #1 job of being a wife and mother.
