44: How to Dress like a True Pageant Queen


episode-44-featured-image
In today’s episode, we’re discussing how to dress like a true pageant queen. It’s simple, but not so easy. It comes down to what you have in your closet. And if you’re listening, you need to update your closet. Yes, you. I’m talking to you – the woman who’s had the same hair-do for like 7 years and you’re still wearing your favorite shirt from college, and you wish they still made those shoes you always love.
 
And, I’m also talking to me, because it’s high-time I get a new ‘favorite shirt’ so I don’t end up in People Magazine with a side-by-side photo in the same shirt – one dated 2009 and the other 2016. If that’s you, it’s time for an upgrade.
 
As you grow (up, old, into yourself), you have new priorities, responsibilities, and personality! Whether you like it or not, you’re judged by your appearance and every woman knows that what you wear has a lot to do with how you feel. If you are still holding onto things that no longer represent the new you (or the best you), then you are doing yourself a disservice, and others will know it too.

Several years ago, a mentor of mine explained the concept of “The Year Scot.” In case you were wondering, his name was Scot.
 
“The Year of You” focuses on:
+ What makes you happy
+ Becoming a better version of yourself

+ Accomplishing your vision
+ Having a wildly successful year
 
That was about 5 years ago, and since then, every year has been “The Year of Alycia.”
