Valentines Day totally had me in the mood for wearing red and after doing the Wear One Piece Five Ways with my red blazer, I remixed it one more time last Sunday.
That morning when I was getting ready, I remembered thinking that I didn’t want to overdress and make other people uncomfortable by wearing a fabulous outfit. I was happy to be proven wrong after I received several lovely compliments. It made me think of my favorite quote by Marianne Williamson from A Return to Love:
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. … And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
