I started this link up over a year ago. I had wanted to start it for quite a while at that point, but was getting stuck on names. I have a habit of doing that actually. It took me a few days until I decided on I do deClaire. I like it when things 'feel' right and cannot make a decision on things until they do. So when Confident Twosday came to me, I knew it was the right name for what I had in mind. 

Over the year a few of my co-hosts have mentioned confidence in their blog posts. While it was the whole idea behind this link up, I am not sure why I didn't start talking about it more. I would love to start including why each outfit (or what part of each outfit) on Tuesdays make me feel confident. In this outfit, my red heels made me feel confident. Red is a power color and one that I typically shy away from. But these heels are such a happy red and a little bit of a heel really makes me feel confident. What is making you feel confident today? If you want to join me on twitter or instagram, use #ConfidentTwosday!

  11. Your embellished sweater is so cute and looks great layered over the chambray shirt! The pop of red was a fantastic choice. Fierce shoes always give me an extra boost of confidence. :)

  13. Red is the color that makes me super confident too. I cannot stop wearing red or my two pairs of red pumps lately. I want some cute patent leather ones again. And that embellished striped sweater - oh my.

    Nice that Adriele is co-hosting again. Her style is classic.

  20. Great look Laura and loving the red heels. I did read somewhere that one of the presidents always wore a red tie when he met with other political leaders because it represented power. I am not sure if this is true or not but it's good.

  22. That sweater is fantastic on you. Love the bit of red with your heels too - nice that they look low enough to wear all day and still be comfortable.

  27. I know what you mean about red! I love it, a favorite color of mine You look great with the black and white, then the pop of red in the lip and shoes. I think confidence really shows if you are happy in what you are wering too.

    thank you for linking up with TH tuesday

  31. Colour has such an impact on our confidence and is often overlooked. I know that if I want to cheer myself up, I'll gravitate to not necessarily bright colours per say, but certainly rich colours; blues, reds, greens and pinks, so I completely get how those red shoes can boost your confidence.
    And that jumper is just so darn cute!

  35. I love this top more and more every time you feature it in an outfit! The stripes + embellishments are just so cute!
    I recently got a jeweled sweatshirt on eBay, so I will have to try pairing it with a chambray button-up...you know, once I don't have the baby bump anymore ;)

  41. I feel the same way about the color red. It's such a statement that it's hard for me to wear! I have a red coat I absolutely love but have to be in that "ready to take on the world" attitude to wear it. You've given me the confidence to wear it next time we go out!
