Look Good, Feel Good

Would you agree that when you look good, you feel good?  I don’t know about you, but on days that I just don’t want to get out of bed, or I’m having a bad hair day or am feeling blue, it really helps to put on something that makes me look good because then I feel good.  What an easy pick me up!

Here are some of my favorites items from my personal look good, feel good collection:

My red Guess purse.

This was a gift from a lovely friend, Tina, when I left Vancouver.  It seems to have magical powers and attracts compliments from everyone which always makes me feel good.

My red Franco Sarto open toed shoes.

I splurged on these babies one year for my birthday and love them!  They’re perfect when paired with a red pedicure and the Guess purse :)  Red, red, red.  I’m sensing a pattern here…

My tweed hat.

Never underestimate the power of a good hat.  Hats are particularly useful on bad hair days or if the alarm didn’t go off and there’s no time to wash your hair!

Now that I’ve spilled, what is in your personal look good, feel good collection?  What’s in your closet that helps you feel good when you need it?

One of the newest trends in shoes this season is gladiator sandals.  If you’ve ever seen a pair, it’s obvious why they’ve coined the phrase gladiator sandals.  If you’ve opened a magazine this season, it’s a trend that all the celebrities are embracing.
