Sometimes (or all the time) it’s just one of those days. And on those days (in addition to lots of coffee) you rely on your favorite clothing piece to get you through the day like the boss lady you are. It could be those black pants that fit you so well and make you look and feel great, that lucky necklace that has you looking and feeling confident, that dress that just makes you feel like a million bucks, or grandma’s pearl necklace.

One of the things that I tell my clients is that you should dress from the inside out, not outside in. In other words, know who you are, what your style is, and what message you want to send. Then put together a wardrobe that portrays all that. Now, I’m not saying to load up your closet with a whole bunch of clothing that you feel connected too. You should still make sure your closets are clutter free, but have your clothes represent you and those connection pieces motivate you.

So, do you need a connection piece? No, it’s not necessary. Would it be great to have? Yes, because clothing helps send your branding message. It gives the outside world a glimpse into who you are. Clothing also helps you be the best you can be. These items can spark an emotional response giving you more self-confidence and motivation.


If you’re reading this and thinking, “I have no connection to my clothes, how do I get a piece that can give me the boost I need?!” Well, here are some tips to help figure out that clothing connection piece that makes your frown turn upside down. 

1)      Try on clothing- What makes you smile when you wear it? What makes you look in the mirror and say- Wow, this is so me! 

2)      Are you an accessories person? If so, go through your accessories and do the same exercise as above. Is there a scarf or necklace that pops your outfit and makes you look and feel great?

3)      You’ve done 1 and 2 and still nada, no connection piece. Then head to your favorite store and browse- what catches your eye and makes you stop? A certain blouse? A certain color? If something strikes your fancy try on the clothing piece or accessory and see how you feel wearing it.

Now I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a connection piece that always turns your frown upside down?
