“There’s a scientific study that shows that if you stand like this in superhero pose for just five minutes before a job interview, a big presentation or a really hard task, you will not only feel more confident, you will perfrom measurably better.”
– Amelia Shepherd, Grey’s Anatomy.
Well hell yes, I did it. I just quoted Grey’s Anatomy. Not because I like what she’s saying, but even more important is the fact that it’s actually true.
We all have those moments in life where we can use some extra encouragement, and who is more equipped to make you feel better than… you! So next time when you find yourself in a stressful situation and don’t know how to handle it or get started, try it. No harm no foul, right?
I will be having those moments for sure in the upcoming weeks, since I will be on the hunt for a new job! If you think you can help me out in this field, let me know. I’m definitely looking for something where I can channel all my creative energy into.
But today I also really want to talk about this awesome outfit. Because it’s no coincidence that it just happens to have all the usual superhero colors…uhuuuuu. That’s right, this is my power outfit for several reasons. So let me tell you why.
First of all, the jacket.I got it as a birthday gift from my mom, which makes it extra special already! As you can see it’s this gorgeous bright red. Now, I believe red is the superpower color of all superpower colors. To me it represents courage, boldness and power. If you think of what color tie Señor Trump usually wears… that’s what I mean. Not a fan of him though!
It’s also one of the statement items everyone should own. Because when you come to the realization that you are wearing an all black or kind of boring outfit…again, just put on a bright jacket. Instant va-va-voom!
The pants are just so comfortable they are all I want to be wearing on the weekend. They can keep up with me on busy weekends when I go from cleaning the house to grocery shopping to cuddling my pooches and sipping cocktails on a sunny terras. Ok that last bit I just made up. I live in Belgium and as soon as the sun comes out no way in hell that I’ll be wearing jeans. BRING OUT THE SHORTS and enjoy those 5 minutes.
It’s not really the kind of pants I would wear to work, but that only strengthens the weekend vibe I’m in while wearing them.
The t-shirt. Well it says WOW in all my favorite superhero colors and that was enough to convince me really ;). Also, super affordable! I found both the shirt and pants at Bristol. Formerly known as Shoe Discount.
Bristol is one of those shops I don’t really come that often. It’s usually when I’m shopping with my mom that we end up there. And you see, once in a while that pays off!
Well, that brings me to the end of this post really.
Let me know what you think and if you like red as much as I do!
Oh, and remember that job thing! If you know a place, do let me know! 😉
