The Secret to Feeling More Confident

You know, I spent a lot of time in my younger days wishing I looked like someone else. And if I’m being honest, I still have some of those same hang ups. I never had a flat stomach, and I’ve had to learn how to dress in a way that minimizes it. My boobs are larger than most women who are my size and height. And my butt, well, it used to be nonexistent, and then I hit late-20-something and now I actually have pants that won’t accommodate it. I also have larger-than-average arms and shoulders, leftover from my swim team days.

Sure, I once wished all of it away. And sometimes I still do. But I’ve also learned the secret to being more confident. And I hate to break it to you, but there is none. The secret lies within you. It means accepting your flaws, whatever that means to you. What I may find a flaw in myself might be your best feature. What I may love about myself may be your biggest insecurity. What being in my late 20s has taught me is that no two people are alike, and that is something worth celebrating.

We as women are too hard on ourselves. We feel bad when we go up a size. (Or at least I do.) I put pressure on myself to never gain weight, to stay the same. And honestly, that’s just not practical. Our bodies change as we get older, and for some bodies who transition to having children, they may change a whole lot.

So how have I worked on feeling more confident?

3 Festival Outfit Ideas for Every Style

Well, it’s officially music festival season! Looking outside and seeing raindrops on the sidewalks and windows doesn’t make it feel very much like it here in Seattle, but I’ll just pretend I’m in the California sun. ;) While I’ve never been to Coachella, I have definitely embraced some of the festival vibes of our local music scene. From Folklife to Sasquatch and Hempfest, Seattle and Eastern Washington has a music scene and lifestyle all it’s own. And fashion is most definitely an integral part of it, which is why you always need to have some good festival outfit ideas up your sleeve!

Dressing Up Sneakers

Earlier this month I shared how to style sneakers in a casual way, but of course, you can dress them up too! I love rocking a cute skirt and sneaks, or a flirty spring dress. For this styling, however, I thought I’d pull one of my warm weather favorites out of the closet: the versatile jumpsuit!

How to Dress Up Sneakers

I think jumpsuits are the perfect piece to wear dressy or casually. Pick one up in black, and you instantly have a piece that can be worn in so many ways. To me, black is one of the most versatile colors in my closet and goes with almost everything. In fact, I have so many black jumpsuit outfit ideas, I think I’ll just have to post some of my favorite ideas soon! For now, here’s one way I love styling my little jumpsuit: with sneakers, of course!

Rain, Rain Go Away // Rainy Day Outfits

You know what they say… April showers bring May Flowers, and that’s most definitely been true lately here in Seattle. It seems we get several days of absolutely gorgeous weather, and then boom, another rainstorm. I hate to complain, because the rain is great for the environment, but can’t a girl get a little warm weather?!

I have a feeling this rainy spring weather is the reason why Seattle gets a bad rap for how we dress. When it’s drizzly, we often opt for hoods over umbrellas and let’s be honest; hooded coats often aren’t the most stylish. Regardless, I don’t think rainy weather should be any excuse for dressing sloppily. I mean, have you seen rain boots these days?! With so many cute patterns, prints, and colors to choose from, rainy day outfits can most definitely still be stylish.

LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil

You know those days where it seems like everything is going wrong, but then it all turns around? That was my day last Thursday. I had the privilege of being invited to the media preview night for the LUZIA by Cirque du Soleil under the big top at Marymoor Park in Redmond, and while my night started off rocky, it ended in a beautiful performance that I can’t recommend enough. 

What to Wear to Cirque du Soleil // Hello Rigby Seattle Fashion Blog Disclosure: I received complimentary tickets from Cirque du Soleil in exchange for my review. All opinions are my own!

I’ll set the stage by explaining these photos. You see, I had planned a full outfit to share what I wore to the show, as this is a style and beauty blog after all… but then as soon as I went to snap my first test photo, my beloved Canon 70D locked up. It error coded, and I died a little inside, but the show must go on, right? In shock, I had Dave help me get outfit photos on my iPhone. As much as I hear people harp about how amazing iPhone photos are… I’m just going to be honest and say I don’t think I’ll be switching anytime soon. ;)
