I realized yesterday that we’ve got less than 10 days before Feel Good, Dress Better launches(!!!), so I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you! One of the sections of the workbook I’m most excited about is the 10 Day Outfit Challenge, which includes daily cues for putting together outfits based on feelings, rather than events. Instead of a look for date night or for your next big meeting, I want you to think about what your outfit makes you feel and what it says to those who see you in it.

Today’s outfit comes from one of my favorite prompts — feminine and creative. I love how each prompt can mean something totally different to each person, and can even mean something different for each day. I could reuse this same prompt every day for a week and probably come up with seven different outfits!

So why this outfit for feminine and creative? When I get dressed, I like to start with one feeling as a base. In this case, I picked out some of my favorite feminine details: eyelet, pastels, and a little heel. Then, I shake things up a bit with a second feeling, throwing a bit of personality in. I never like my outfits to feel *too* anything — feminine, edgy, casual, etc. I don’t love an overly polished look, but that’s just me! Anyway, I thought scallops, a fringe purse, and tassel earrings added a dose of “creative” while pairing nicely with the feminine touches in this outfit.

With any experiment, some things are going to work better than others. In hindsight, I think this dress looks best with a top that’s more fitted, especially through the sleeves. (Also, it obviously looks best when it’s been ironed! And when there’s not like 20 mph winds!) I still totally dig this outfit, though, and might even recreate it with a different eyelet top that’s actually sleeveless to see if I like it better.

What does a feminine and creative outfit look like for you?
