Guest Post Group: Star-Crossed Smile's Dressing for Confidence

As part of the Guest Post Group, created by Ashley of Two Eyes in the Mirror, this month I teamed up with Jen and Kam of the closet narcissist to write this guest post!  Thank you for having me on your blog, Jen and Kam!

Jen and Kam's blog focuses on building confidence, so I thought I would share an outfit that I feel confident in.  This is the type of outfit I feel most comfortable in - a pretty dress, a cardigan, matching earrings, and flats.  I can use this formula for an outfit any day and feel confident that I look put-together and cute.

Even though this is a fairly simple outfit, I love the feeling that putting together a cute outfit gives me.  I can be having a crappy day and just getting dressed can make me feel tons better.  It's funny that clothes can have such an effect on us, but I would definitely say that looking 'presentable' on the outside gives me a good feeling on the inside.  Along those lines, starting a personal style blog has increased my confidence by leaps-and-bounds when it comes to what I wear.  They aren't always huge fashion risks that I'm taking, but it's fun to see when I've put together an outfit that I wouldn't even have thought of a few months ago.  

I want to know, do clothes make you feel confident too, and if so, how?
