Style Starts Now!

Stepping It Up

Monthly Round-Up

Photo by M.B.Cotto
Woo-hoo!  It has been an amazing month here at DailyOutfit!  

I started the month by hosting a wonderful workshop in The Hague and I'm about fly off to NYC to host another one in Brooklyn -- plus my first Style Maven Cocktail Party!  So excited!!

I lost my Dad to the playoffs -- he's still fully wrapped up in baseball -- and Malala won the Nobel.  AND I debuted my beautiful manifesto.

Phew!  All of this growth and stepping into my spotlight has not come easy.  It's a big risk to put yourself out there, to invite people into your ideas and your passions.  

Don't I know it -- I have been wrestling my own personal demons all month!  Fear and doubt are my two evil step-sisters and they are doing everything they can to keep me below stairs.  

Not gonna happen, ladies!


When I start to feel their prickly fingers steal over me (and it always happens from the back of my neck...why?), I take heart in Martin Luther King's words:  "You don't have to see the whole staircase.  Just take the first step."  

Martin changed the world.  If it worked for him, it can work for me!

Focusing the steps in front of me, tacking each one individually, it is much easier.  Instead of huffing and puffing and searching for oxygen, now I can look back and celebrate how far I've come!  Yay!


UPCOMING EVENTS:  
Speaking of which, here are the details on my workshop and my cocktail partyin NYC:

THIS MONTH AT DAILYOUTFIT:
It makes such a difference to me to know that I'm making a difference in people's lives.  This is what gets me up in the morning and propels me to keep coming up with fun and inventive ways to help you start your style journey.  

Everyday Style. You know I'm a first adopter when it comes to technology and shopping. I love it when the power of the web can make life easy -- especially when it comes to style!  So, I had to share Resultly with you!

Here's a sampling of some of my collections:

 

I'll be creating a collection for each monthly look.  You can shop straight from the collection, comment or ask questions of your own.  It's going to be fun to explore this new site!

Manifest-o Monday.  DailyOutfit celebrated its 7th Anniversary this month.  It's hard for me to believe it's been 7 years!?!  I started this blog way before blogging was cool.  

But, I never really talked a lot about why I started DailyOutfit in the first place -- I just started doing it.

In my posts Creating A Safe Space and Why the WHY, I discuss my motivation and mission with DailyOutfit.

DailyOutfit's October LookFandom is different for different people.  For some, it's an ardent love of sports teams.  For me, it's galvanizing female leaders.  For others, it's both and more.

When Fanatics asked me to write a post about game-day style, I knew I had to say YES.

The power of dress can be a key to your success.

At sports games, you dress in your team's colors and iconography to cheer them on and show your support.  

For female leaders, dress can be a burden or a boon -- depending on whether she chooses to bury her light or harness it to propel her message forward.

DailyOutfit's October Look

http://www.result.ly/dailyoutfit/interest/-pWgk1hqDk2lTrM57R0iEw

I have lost my father.  He's not actually lost -- don't worry -- but he's not talking to me.  And it's not that we've had a disagreement.

Everything is totally fine.  He's well, he's happy in his apartment attached to my sister and brother-in-law's house.  My sister tells me she's barely spoken to him either. 

The issue is the playoffs.

Really?

http://www.malala.org/#who-we-areMalala wins the Nobel Peace Prize at 17, my Dad won't talk to me because of -- what sport is it?  Baseball?  I don't even know.  I had to ask Google -- and even then it didn't make a lot of sense to me.  But, I'm pretty sure it's about the Orioles.  


Now, my Dad spent his life in public service.  He read 2-3 newspapers every day for his entire adult life.  He's a bright, engaging, and generous man.  I know he's incredibly proud of Malala and is inspired by the amazing work she's doing -- as am I!


And the truth is I love sports.  I rode horses, played soccer, field hockey, rowed and love my mornings at the gym.  But, I never really understood watching sports.

On occasion, sure.  World Cup or the Superbowl.

Obviously, super-cool people do it.  Check out JT and Jessica.  So cute.

But me?  I watch to know what other people are talking about and to enjoy their company.

So -- when Fanatics asked me to write a post about how to rock great style with baseball hats, I thought.  Yup, I definitely need do that.  Because the key to enjoying sports for me is looking at what other people in the stadium are wearing.


Yup -- that's right -- it all comes down to style (of course).

Strangely, I seem to find myself in lands where everyone wants to wear orange.  Orioles-land.  Neder-land.

Lucky for me that I am a mix between a Summer and a Spring and can get away with wearing orange.  Most people can't.

No joke.

After all, style's my thing.  I even caught myself thinking how gorgeous Malala's khimar was (had to look that one up; hope this blog post was accurate) and how it complemented her coloring beautifully.

I mean, look how gorgeous she is!

I am *such* a fan!!


{Swoon}

So, fans, here's how we rock it at the game:

MISSES: 


+ + + +



PETITE: 


+ + + +



PLUS: 


+ + + +



Keep it casual, don't over-do.  I implore you.  Choose one place for the brand and coordinate with your colors.  Face-paint -- yes -- but let your outfit be about YOU.

Embrace your fandom -- and yes, let's do it with style!
