Clothed in Confidence

It’s common to see people walk across campus in sweats. More commonly are girls wearing leggings, over-sized shirts, and hair in a messy bun. I get up at 6:45 each morning to shower, style my hair, apply some make-up, and dress nicely. You never know when you are going to meet a future employer… or husband…

Today I have my Basic Video Production presentation and told business casual was not necessary but to look nice. So decided on a blazer with boots and jeans (this is one of the few times I wish I had an iron the press my jeans to have a crisp look, but only washed works too). What started as smiling all morning, striking up a conversation with a stranger in the elevator, and handout papers in my Agricultural Leadership class, I noticed I am more confident in myself. The constant smiling and offering to be in front of the class are not always common for when on a daily basis. I am connecting this outgoing happiness to the blazer.

A person who feels more confident in themselves is more likely to go outside their comfort zone. By dressing nicer than usual with the added blazer, I gained more confidence to step outside my comfort zone and be the person in front of the people I look up to.

Wearing my favorite blazer for Video Production presentation today. Of course it is hot pink with cheetah print and gold cuffs.

Dressing a notch above gives me more confidence in myself. Does this include the confidence in myself as a student to do better on exams than if I was dressed in a t-shirt and Sperry’s? With two 8 am finals coming up, I will be putting this theory to the test; dress better, do better. I may not be wearing a blazer and slacks, but my hair will be done up and unwrinkled top on.
