There is Magic in You!

My greatest wish for each of you this Christmas Day and every day is that you BELIEVE, not in Santa, but in yourself!

A fellow blogger from across the pond (thank you Mis Papelicos!) recently paid me a compliment, saying "there is  magic in you." It made my day, for sure, and resonated as something more than appreciation for a cute outfit. I think it's true of ALL of us, but believing it and recognizing it in ourselves and others isn't always easy.

Lately when I've felt self-doubt, I've reminded myself of her words. "There is magic in you." I'm not sure why I find that simple mantra so powerful, but I do. I've also found it running through my head in my interactions with friends and those I admire - there is a unique kind of magic in the people I've chosen to surround myself with, whether they know it or not, and I've been making a point to let them know. Believe in yourself. Believe in others. Believe in magic!
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
