About the time I bought my first pair of white jeans, Grade 8, was about the time I met Aynsley. We immediately bonded on things like Depeche Mode, The Lost Boys, and our distaste for the public school system. Twenty years later, I buy my second pair of white jeans and Aynsley opens her online store: The Automat; a hot new little haven for fine things resurrected from the past.

An hour after hubbie finishes snapping the pics of me in my vintage Automat dress, I’m telling him that if he can’t tell me five things he loves about himself, he’s fucked. I tell him I could list ten things I love about myself without batting an eye and it has nothing to do with ego. Self love creates a power within you to be who you want to be and attract the things and people you want in your life. If you love yourself, you know how to respect yourself, how to create boundaries when something doesn’t feel right, how to survive the ups and downs of life, and how to love others in a healthy way. Self love is the ultimate love.

So, before you go out there, buy a cute new outfit, and enjoy the mid-summer heat, list five things you love about yourself.
