This was a funny evening outfit for me. We had a really full weekend with all sorts of things to get done, but I wanted to go out to dinner. I spent the morning working furiously on all of my various jobs around the house and decided to get ready around two in the afternoon. While getting ready I asked Jules, my wife, what she was thinking about wearing. She surprisingly said she was thinking of wearing a dress, and asked me what I was wearing. This is the funny part, normally it is me in a dress and Jules in jeans, but this time I told Jules that I wanted to wear jeans. As it turned out she was only thinking of wearing a dress because she assumed I wanted to, and thus we both happily wore jeans. I know, thrilling story huh?

Today, I’m just thrilled to offer you a guest post from stylist Char Dobbs! I met Char at a LOTT event, and we hit it off immediately when I discovered that her styling philosophy mirrored my own: She believes that style and confidence are linked, and that dressing well can help women who struggle with self-image feel bolder and braver. I’m no longer offering style consult services myself, so I’m especially excited to have connected with Char since she offers the same gentle, body-positive approach that I did!
