I've got the stripes
Hey loves happy Thursday! You have officially made it through most of your week. You're one day till Friday and I know you can do it! I decided to do something different for this post. I recently allowed some of my followers to ask me question. One of the questions that I got was, you look so great in everything you post, is there something you feel insecure about? That question kind of stunned me to be honest. I wanted to message back in capitol letters, DUH I AM HUMAN THERE ARE THINGS I AM FOR SURE INSECURE ABOUT! Yet, it made me flattered that someone out there believes that I, to them, feel so confident in my photos.
I am human, like I said before, and there are things that I don't always feel comfortable in. I think bloggers sometimes seem extremely confident and glamorous but there's times, I know, I don't feel the best in my skin.
I have never liked wearing stripes. There's something odd about them, I don't think they're flattering, and I feel like they direct people's attention to the areas I don't want them to be looking at.
At first, I was going to carry on and do a regular post, talking about clothing and different items that I am wearing. Then I really thought about it, and it made me truly think, wow this is one of the realest questions I've ever gotten. This may be an issue other women face so why not shed some light on it?
I to want say I don't care how beautiful you are, even the most secure can feel a bit of insecurity sometimes. Therefore, I decided to find something out of my comfort zone, stripes, and dedicate this post to it.
This orange colored striped dress is from Forever 21. I was hesitant to get it when I saw it a couple months ago. I idly came out of the dressing room to show my friend, and she insisted that it looked lovely on me. I decided why not, plus it was one sale, so it seemed like a win. This dress is low cut, which is also out of my comfort zone, I have never been the bodacious person to show a lot of unnecessary cleavage. If that is for you, I say, go GIRL let it show. Therefore, trying to hide as best as I could, I got a small safety pin and fastened the top part of the dress so it didn't show as much.
I paired this dress with a floral coral and orange colored necklace that I also found at Forever 21, it was on sale for 5.00! Can you believe it, I love it when I get sales.
I think it's funny how some things that make us feel uncomfortable maybe seen differently to others. I didn't feel 100 percent secure in what I was wearing but people kept coming up to me telling me how much they loved my outfit, and how lovely I looked with it on. It's weird because I almost wanted to ask them "really are you messing around with me?"
What I am trying to say is that the definition of beauty is so constricted in our society. If you don't fit the mold of, beautiful, you start to second guess everything about yourself. I believe every girl, no matter their shape, size, color, or economic status is beautiful.
We will have the days where we feel the least desirable, but, it just means we're human and it happens to the best of us. My challenge for you all is to break that comfort zone, whether it be wearing a color you find awful on yourself, or a certain style you'd never wear. Break that mold and try something new! You're beautiful, it's not the clothes that make the woman, but, the woman that make the clothes.
Until next time thanks for reading! I love you all.
