“Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it.”
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this little blog of mine has managed to teach me a great deal of things in a relatively short amount of time, and today I want to share with you some of those useful things I’ve learned. Now, I wasn’t the most confident girl growing up, I had my fair share of insecurities – some of them still live cozily inside my head, others are long gone by now – but what I am happy to have understood is that:
- It’s never too late to change and it’s never too late to try something new; of course stepping out of our comfort zone is not easy but you should wear that red lipstick you’ve been thinking of wearing for the longest time, you should switch the jeans for a pretty dress if that makes you feel prettier, you should always feel like the best version of yourself, regardless of what others might think, or say;
- Dare be you – we live in a world that seems to constantly try to dictate our decisions and while seeking inspiration in everyone and everything is alright and quite natural, is what you choose to do with that inspiration that matters most. You should never compromise who you are for others, I’ve done it before and it doesn’t feel good at all. If in a world that is mad about color you feel the happiest wearing black and white, do it. I know I am having a blast doing it ^_^
- Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication – there’s absolutely nothing wrong in choosing simplicity, the same way there’s nothing wrong in going wild when defining your personal style. And while I appreciate the use of imagination and the unexpected clashes of colors, prints or textures on others, it’s still the ultimate simplicity that puts a smile on my face, and while boring to others I LOVE IT, I always will.
- It takes time for things to fall into place and it takes patience, and that is OK. Not everything has to move at the speed of sound, we all have our own ways of dealing with change, we are all gifted with a different set of values and I for one, have really, really learned to enjoy the ride, with all the bumps that come along.
There’s still a lot on my mind, but I will be sharing the rest of my thoughts in another post. Enjoy your night and think about what truly puts a smile on your face, because that is key to your happiness ♥ ♥ ♥
