If you were to ask me to think of times when my mother has looked most beautiful, I would tell you quite easily:
- My wedding day
- Her 30th anniversary
I have these two days in mind not because she was wearing fancy clothes or perfect make-up. Nope, she looked lovely but not so different than normal. The reason these days stand out is because she was radiating happiness. Her smile lit up her face, and she was positively glowing with good feelings.
Ask yourself this question about the people in your life. When do they look beautiful to you? I think part of style and fashion goes beyond what we wear.
Reality check from George Carlin:
‘Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body.’
Fashion is fun. We can express our individuality and play with different looks. But always remember that the surface is just one layer of what you’re expressing to the world.
Feel good, look good. It’s as simple as that.
