The Wear Your Joy Project

Jul 18, 2014 | My Creative Practice, Wear Your Joy™

One day I started to get more intentional about what I was wearing, choosing only to wear clothes that delighted my spirit and lit me up. And then I invited others to join me, using #thewearyourjoyproject as the hashtag over on Instagram. 

This project has reminded how nothing in this life is superficial – but rather when our hearts speak, we gotta listen. We just never know where it will take us. In this case, it’s taken me to something bigger – it’s not about boots or pairing together perfect outfits. It’s about wearing our joy.

Trying something a little different today for #thewearyourjoyproject. Pairing a tunic (from #boden) with leggings, a big belt, and a pair of new shoes from #poeticlicence that are quite possibly my favorite pair of shoes that I've bought since I bought a

I’m trying out leggings with slips peeking out. Kind of love it. Also, these shoes (from here). They are so cozy and sassy. Love!


Shirts under tanktops = one of my favorite things ever. I could wear this everyday.

Friends, it was a good day.

Experimenting with belts and loving it! This one is from the sale rack at Anthropologie. And the yellow tunic? It’s from Boden and makes me wanna picnic.

Who made up the rule that we shouldn't wear floral with stripes? Breaking the rules today as I get #dressedupinjoy. Also, did you know that I was voted "most likely to wear stripes with plaid" in high school? #somethingsneverchange #thewearyourjoyproject

Why not? I’m digging the mix of patterns while keeping the colors similar. In the highschool yearbook I was voted most likely to wear stripes with plaid – total evidence that some things never change.

This project and practice keeps me in my joy first thing in the morning. That, and hello color. Love that it's warm enough to bring out the skirts again. This one is made by Ginza Girl (local biz). #dressedupinjoy #thewearyourjoyproject

Hello yellow shoes. You are my favorite.

I hope you’ll learn what I’m relearning: Style isn’t superficial. It’s the call of your heart, made visible — and wearable.
