my style signature: stripes & a smile

When it comes to personal style, everyone has their “thing.” For some, it’s a red lip, for some it’s great fitting denim, for others it might be a classic button down blouse. For me, it’s usually stripes & a big smile.

Even if I have five striped shirts, I gravitate towards striped items in stores. It’s subconscious, I have to remind myself that I already have a few. As of recent, another signature for me is a smile. I used a smile a LOT, probably an obnoxious amount really, and recently started again as I have been progressing through my Invisalign treatment. I’ve been wearing the trays now since May, and it’s amazing how much my teeth have moved in such a short period of time. Really, I have this amazing machine to thank called AcceleDent. Basically what this little tool does is cut the time that you wear each tray in half! So where you would generally wear 1 tray for 2 weeks at a time, with this, you only wear it for 1 week. It’s really amazing once you start flying through the trays. I’m already on my 10th tray, which wouldn’t be possible without AcceleDent. AcceleDent is a lightweight handheld piece that you use for 20 minutes a day (while I’m watching Law & Order: SVU for example), and it uses microvibrations to stimulate movement in your teeth. It is safe, gentle, and helps relieve that 1st day, new tray discomfort!

I think AcceleDent is great for a variety of reasons–whether you have a big event coming up (graduation, wedding, etc) or are just impatient like me and you want to see results as soon as possible. You will love this!

As far as signature fashion pieces go, what are your tried & true, go to looks?
