Hey everyone! I hope all my blogging friends in the US had a good Thanksgiving last week, we sure did. Unlike other Thanksgiving years past this one was actually low key. Normally we have like 4 or more Thanksgiving gatherings it seems but this year just 3 (with my family, in-laws and church). The outfit in this post was actually worn on Thanksgiving day to two of those Thanksgiving gatherings. This made for the perfect low-key and comfortable look that just makes me feel happy. Today I have teamed up with two other bloggers to share with you our “Happy Outfits” to share a few things in life that make us happy, including what we wear and why. I also included at the end of the post a few quotes from a few other bloggers that contributed from this post here on what makes them feel happy or confident.
Like I mentioned above I feel happy in this outfit. I bought these leggings from Lularoe consultants Amy and Shannon and they are the MOST COMFORTABLE leggings I have ever owned and were definitely worth the money. In fact I have a hard time snatching up anymore leggings from these ladies as their inventory gets sold out within a hot minute. Thank God I am hosting an online party for them next week to get some more (let me know if you want an invite), but I digress.
These leggings make me happy and host my four favorite colors, blue, pink, black and white. The colorful patterns they are arranged in and the mere fact that these are so comfortable just send me in a happy coma. Because these leggings are so busy and bold I made sure to keep the rest of the outfit neutral. The added scarf balances out the look creating eye movement from head to toe versus stares at just the leggings.
Coming away from the happy leggings I also feel my best when I can straighten my hair (and play with it too, as you may notice in every photo, sorry). I have naturally curly hair so lately I like to take more time to straighten it as it does heighten the excitement for dressing up. As a mom my go-to outfits for fall and winter are normally jeans, leggings and wearing the said colors that I mentioned above so this look is right up my alley and makes me feel confident.

Now on to what other bloggers have said makes them happy ( or confident), from this post:
“Girls nights, date nights and outings with my daughter make me happy too!”
-Jill of Doused in Pink
“I feel more confident when I dress for success!”
-Becky of Bybmg
“For me, feeling happy and confident has a lot to do with how I am thinking about my life and my circumstances. For instance, when I am looking at my body with love and thankfulness, I am more focused on what I have or what I like about myself than areas that I don’t like. Another example is the way I look at my husband or my circumstances. Am I looking for the good? for the reasons to be thankful? Or am I focusing on/thinking about the things that are difficult, uncomfortable, or unpleasant?
Changing my perspective always makes me feel happier and more confident about myself and my life. (And I’m always a better wife when I’m happy and confident!;)”
-Casey of Cattails, Rabbit Trails and Thistlefish
“Working out each day makes me happy, and helps me keep sane!”

“When I take some time to do my hair, put on some make up, and wear a fab outfit then I feel much more confident and put together.”
“Things in my daily life that make me feel happy are my heavenly father, family, girls nights, coffee and coffee shop atmospheres, hot baths, straightening my hair, jewelry, leggings and layering my LipSense different ways.”
