Sometimes while I'm getting ready in the morning I like to sing and dance to praise and worship. The other day I said to my husband, "I'm sure you've heard me singing (sarcasm because our neighbors can probably hear it). I just want you to know that I don't have any misguided plans to audition for The Voice or anything. I know my voice is pretty terrible, but it just feels so good to sing, and it makes me happy, so I do it!"

It occurred to me later that my confidence with fashion comes from the exact same place. You won't hear me say that I think I'm stylish, or that I'm a wonderful dresser, and I often post outfits here that I'm unsure about or questioning and yet... I would also say that I am completely confident when it comes to style! (Certainly you've got to have some confidence to be posting outfits online, and potentially even more so when you're not sure about them.) I don't give much thought to my ability or style skills. But I'm 100% confident in the joy it brings, or what I call the audacity to enjoy myself. The singing and the bold outfit wearing of the world is not just for an elite bunch, it's for all of us. And I think we may as well embrace the freedom to experiment with style, regardless of whether we're hitting the right notes every time or not!
