“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.“
— Marie Curie

For years now my go-to confidence booster has been a very dramatic swipe of red lipstick.
Most people can’t believe what a difference it makes in my appearance — I just feel so much more capable with a red lip! There’s just something about a bold, powerful lip that works so well at boosting my style confidence and making me feel like I can tackle LITERALLY any challenge.
But ever since my Nana passed away last February, I’ve been wearing this cobalt coat of hers religiously only to find myself loving the confidence boost it instantly gives me too. What a difference one coat makes!!
It’s almost as powerful as a swipe of red lipstick in boosting my confidence!
Maybe it’s the stunning jewel-toned color? Or the classic silhouette? Or because it was my incredibly stylish Nana’s coat first?
Well, whatever the reason, I’m seriously in love with the extra rev this coat puts in my step no matter if I’m layering it over a cobalt dress, or pairing it with my favorite leopard booties, or just pairing it with a simple cashmere sweater.
