Why fashion isn't my strongest suit

sea, person, woman
I was never the girl at school with the hottest handbag and the latest hair-do. I was the girl who wore no make-up and a plaited tail. Fashion didn't really appeal to me and even now at the age of twenty-one it doesn't. I have idols, Khloe Kardashian, Rita Ora (the list goes on.) and I do like flicking through magazines at "what's hot" but I feel as though fashion isn't a way of expressing ourselves any more. Fashion seems like a must have. There are no guidelines these days, people and media tell you what you should be wearing and you should never be told what to wear, it's about comfortability and expressing who you are. 

I wouldn't say I'm boring with my outfit choices, I'd say I'm more original. I wear what I feel most comfortable in, I'll wear clothes that compliment my figure and wear colours that suit my skin tone. I'm not going to dress up in clothes that make me feel like I'm trying to be someone else. I wear Me, I do me. Some may say 'plain Jane.' but I'm far from that. I have a wardrobe full of clothes that I would refer to as fashionable, but I would also refer to them as my personality. I express myself through my clothes, which is what fashion is suppose to be about, in my opinion. 

"I don't think I'll ever be the kind of woman to do the grocery shopping in a dress and high heels, I'm more of a statement tee and turn up jeans with converse pumps, and I'm okay with that." 

If you ask people for advice a lot of the time it will be "always be yourself" and that can be hard, possibly one of the toughest tasks to do. When there are critics in the street and on social media. Life is sometimes like living on america's next top model. Being judged for what style we chose to wear. But when we are comfortable and happy in who we are and what we wear it makes it a lot easier to continue being ourselves. 

I could easily wear what others are wearing and have my hair how everybody else has theirs, but where's the fun in that? Every time I go shopping I'd feel like I'm in a clown house of mirrors. Looking a lot like everybody else. When was the last time we posted on Instagram with the caption 'I'm wearing me, styled and modelled by me." There is nothing wrong with inspiration, and styling an outfit similar to our most loved celebrity, as long as we're in there somewhere. I can't duplicate myself, so I'm not going to try and duplicate someone else and try to look like them as much as possible but If I'm totally honest, I could throw anything on and feel good, as long as my face and hair are all on point. I don't care too much on my outfit and that is the reason alone why I'm not a fashion blogger, It really isn't my strongest suit. (no pun intended aha.) 


Be you. Be Original, Be-autiful.
