Monday Morning Inspiration~ From Sequins & Stripes

Hello + Happy Monday! It's Liz from the fashion and style blog, Sequins & Stripes, and I'm thrilled to be guest posting here at The Peak of Tres Chic today! I always look forward to Sam's Monday Inspiration posts and jumped on the chance to share some Monday inspiration of my own. 


What better way to dive into a new week then with a quote! I always think it is important to take a step back and "look again" whenever something difficult comes up. 


...and a few things that I always try to keep in mind to ensure a good + productive week...start everyday with a cup of coffee or treat myself to a tasty cappuccino, get dressed up everyday even if I don't have meetings planned, accessorize {with this Kate Spade bangle, these earrings, and this bow}.  Also, make to-do lists, and once you cross a few items off of your list, reward yourself with something sweet! Wear some bright lipstick, dress up your undergarments {with this and this}, buy some fresh flowers, put on some sparkly shoes {I love these!}, and always tell yourself, "you look great!"

A huge thank you to Sam for having me here today! I hope you all enjoy a lovely week ahead and don't forget to stop by Sequin & Stripes to find daily inspiration for a styled life. 

xoxo

  7. I've had trouble myself with Monday's lately... I only have 1 class and tend to sleep in, then don't get dressed for class, come right back home and be lazy. NOT GOOD! I'm going to start dressing up starting today! Yay for Monday Inspiration!!

  19. Love this... the quote, the attitude, everything!!! I have a job where I can be pretty casual, and even though my version of "dressing down" is most people's "dressing up" I have recently chosen to step it to an even higher notch. It's incredible how much better you feel by just putting a little extra effort in! XO brynn

  21. Also, in regards to your post on Sequins and Stripes(I tried to post this on your blog but I can't because you don't have the Name/URL profile option) I love your sweater. I love the nautical theme and colors. I also like that you posted a regular outfit, not one that you planned just to post. That always seems a little silly to me. Classy and casual is the way to go :)
