dressbarn: Fill Your Closet


[title subtitle=””]#LabelMeConfident[/title] Confidence is all about looking and feeling your best. For me, that means waking up early, having a cup of coffee, getting in a workout, and going about the rest of my day. Some days, though, getting out of bed can be especially tough. Believe it or not, there are times when the weather and work piled up from the day before have convinced me, against better judgment, to stay curled up in bed with a book.

Of course, the luxury of lounging doesn’t come easily or often. When I need the extra push of confidence, I usually opt for a little more makeup and done up hair. I’m also a big believer in dressing for success, especially if I feel like what I’m wearing is both within my budget and beautiful. What I wear on the outside should always reflect how I feel on the inside. So, with the weather cooling down, I thought I’d share with you a perfect fall-inspired dress designed by LUXE by Carmen Marc Valvo that I got from dressbarn!

For those who don’t know, dressbarn is amazing place to find chic and trendy fashion for great value on the fly. They’ve got everything from office wear to staples for a night out on the town.  In addition to the dress you see here, I also have this Abstract Floral Print Sheath Dress that’s perfect for upcoming holiday parties and this Abstract High-Low Dress that I wore to a casual wedding last weekend.  Happy Shopping, ladies!



  1. Good Morning!
    I just found you on Blog Lovin, and am inspired by your beautiful site!

    I especially loved these lines “Of course, the luxury of lounging doesn’t come easily or often. When I need the extra push of confidence, I usually opt for a little more makeup and done up hair.”

    Of course, true confidence comes from a sense of peace with yourself and what you’re doing for and in the world..but it’s also absolutely positively ok to source a little boost from surfaces! I too go the “bit of extra lipstick” route. It’s not a matter of choosing between inner and outer self-worth–its about enjoying both. 🙂

    On my own site, She’s Very Chic, I’m working to redefine “chic” as Confident, Happy, Inspired and Connected…but ultimately offer my takes on elegant everyday style with suggestions that give me “a quick boost”. Glad to know we have a common message.


  2. I haven’t been to Dressbarn in ages, but it looks like it’s time to go back for another go. And yeah, I totally agree with the dress for success. Totally a thing.www.MarinaSays.com

  3. I LOVE how long this dress is! I work in a professional environment and I have been on the hunt for longer dresses! Thanks for the post; I’m heading to boot barn right now to find some work clothes!

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
