    Deep breath; this one’s a vanity post. One of my original Life List goals was to hire a personal stylist for the day. And I’ve thought it over and, for some reason, the idea of spending money for someone to tell me what to wear totally slayed me. I think it’s a lovely concept and I’m not in the least bit knocking personal stylists, but I think for me, I need something different.

    I needed a confidence stylist. And I needed it to be me.

    I have no problem picking out outfits that I L-O-V-E. And I have very few problems bringing them home with me. And then I try them on, and they just look so-so, and I never wear them again. It’s not really a body issue thing, it’s just that some outfits are much more flattering than others (I’m looking at you, Favorite Dress).

    But you know what? Here’s my new rule:
    1. Wear what flatters you, and always look great.
    2. Wear what you love, and always feel great.

    I’m going for the latter. Which means you might find me sporting a tutu this weekend, and that’s just fine with me.

    Anyway, I might be sharing a few of my favorite outfits with you in this space if Husband will appease photograph me. Deal? Deal.

    In the mean time, here are a few animal sweaters I wouldn’t mind donning all. week. long:
