THE INSIDE SCOOP ON DOPAMINE DRESSING

Dallas fashion blogger wearing orange top & skirt set as example of dopamine dressing

The rush you feel after you win a well-fought game, take a bite of delicious chocolate, or hear a loved one laugh can all be traced back to a very important chemical in your brain called dopamine. When your brain feels a reward coming on, it releases dopamine to encourage the happy feelings you get when doing the things you love!

Believe it or not, dopamine can also be released when you are wearing a style of clothing that truly makes you happy. So, in today’s post, I will be showing you how I “dopamine dress” because I strongly believe that each and every one of you should be able to dress in a way that makes you feel your best. Who knew that science could back up fashion? Keep scrolling to see how I styled these 5 colorful looks in order to feel like the best version of myself!

PS –  I’m 48 years old and am currently in menopause and on bioidentical hormones.  The last time I had my blood taken my serotonin levels we extremely low so I’m looking for healthy ways, in addition, to exercising and eating healthy to help increase my serotonin, and dressing in fun, bright colors have seemed to help me lately!  Can you relate?  Would you all be interested in me doing a post on my experience with bioidentical hormones?  Let me know by emailing me ([email protected]) or DM’ing me on Instagram.
