Take some time to shop for summer pieces that you’d like to add to your wardrobe, like some new elegant dresses for summer that will make you feel like a princess. Wear your dress or favorite look around the block, to the pharmacy, for an at-home event, etc. and you’ll feel that confidence boost.

Going through your clothes, trying on fun pieces and ending with an organized closet that you are excited to go shopping in will uplift your spirits and get you excited about what you do have all over again. Make it even more fun by FaceTiming a friend and sorting through together!
These days it may be a bit hard to feel okay, but these gradual steps will help you feel more confident and that extra bit of self-care can make all the difference.
