Karen’s Love Thursday post today ends with the gorgeous line, “And my love-filled wish for you is that, at some point today, you realize how beautiful you are.” (Go over and read the whole post – and check out the other Love Thursday links. I love that she dedicates one day a week to recognizing and spreading all the love in the world.)

I know her post wasn’t just about physical beauty – but this week I’m loving the clothes that make me feel physically beautiful. You know those clothes – sometimes they’re brand new, sometimes old standbys. Some are chic and fancy; some are soft and casual, worn in until they’re just right. I’ve worn both kinds this week, and I’m so thankful for those clothes that flatter my figure, suit my complexion, match my eyes or make me feel like a knockout.

The wide-leg, dark-dyed sparkly jeans. The v-necks from Gap whose V dips down to the perfect spot. (One of them is the exact colour of my eyes.) The gold flats that make my toes feel twinkly. The bright coral linen skirt, bought in Oxford, that makes me feel like Meg Ryan in You’ve Got Mail. The soft, elegant grey cardigan from Express that goes with nearly everything. The charity-shop strappy stilettos I just love. The colourful sundress I inherited from Mom, just right for graduation. The little black halter dress I always feel fabulous in. The ripped, faded, worn-out jeans I’ve had since I was 17 (they are my very own “traveling pants”). The T-shirt from Rome that says “Ciao Ciao” instead of “Coca-Cola.” The trusty Mossimo tank tops that hug my curves perfectly. I could go on – but I’m so thankful to own clothes like these, that make me feel and look exactly like the best version of me.

May you wear clothes that love you today – and may you feel beautiful, inside and out.

superhero clothes

Superman has his red cape. Batman has his body armour. Catwoman and Wonder Woman have skintight gear that shows off their muscles AND protects them when dealing with villains. And I have…well, I don’t have anything that enables me to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Or even a few bounds.

But I do have this:

heart doorstep

Wide-leg dark jeans, sparkly brown wedges, and purple toenail polish. (And a heart-sprinkled doormat, as a bonus.) I also have my gold flats, my black strappy charity-shop heels, my butter-yellow jacket, my dark denim pencil skirt, my beaded Fairtrade earrings from Oxford, a whole rainbow of scarves, and an old green tank top that I love because it matches my eyes exactly. I can reach for any of these things, and an ordinary day at work or around town is automatically better.

What are your superhero clothes?
