Dressing for Success
"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman" Coco Chanel
On a wintery day in the Pacific Northwest, I thought I would write about my favorite athletic wear - Lululemon. I wear Lululemon 365 days a year. Yes, I do! Why you ask? Because the apparel is created of the highest quality fabrics, in an array of beautiful colors, styles and designs, super comfortable and made of dry-fit or sweat-wicking material. They never pill, washes well, and keeps for years. Furthermore, these numbers remind me daily to work out and get moving! More importantly, Lululemon makes you look and feel great. As Billy Crystal once said on SNL, "It is more important to look good than to feel good. "You look marvelous."
My Daily Routine
"The joy of dressing is an art." John Galliano
When I wake up in the morning, I slip into a pair of Lululemon leggings, top and sweatshirt. You will never find me wearing pajamas all day or even for an hour or two. Instead, I eagerly get dressed for a new page to begin. It is just as important as making your bed in the morning in order to jump start your day with an accomplishment. After all, my motto is "dress for success."
If I am planning on playing tennis a few hours later, I switch into my favorite tennis apparel (future article) and out the door I go. When I return home, I shower and reach for jeans and cashmere sweaters which are comfy and always classic. You will never find me in Lululemon all day or in the evening. I believe in dressing up a bit, putting my makeup on even if it is late in the day. Makes me feel good, look polished and self-confident. However, every morning begins with Lululemon!
But First - Some Inspiration
"Spread love wherever you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier." Mother Teresa
Before I ramble on about my favorite Lululemon pieces, I thought I would take a moment for a few words and share inspiration and love. We all had a difficult 2020. My hope is that we can come together, spread cheer, and calm the turbulent seas in 2021. What we have lived through, what we have witnessed, what we have endured has been heartbreaking and gut wrenching. Recently we were stunned to our knees. We were shocked, livid, saddened for the loss of life and appalled. Yet, we continue to carry on with grace.
What have we learned? We have learned that family and true friends are everything. We have learned that helping another person is the essence of human existence. We learned that connection was and is paramount. The human condition is beautiful tapestry and finding peace, hope and love is the essence of everyone's life.
Family & Friends
"There are friends, there is family, and then there are friends that become family."
Surrounding yourself with family and friends during the darkest days brings contentment to our lives. The constant calls, texts and video chats help soothe the soul and refresh our energy. Without, this element of connection we are lost. Additionally, I believe we are turning the corner and the new year will bring much joy and happiness to everyone.
