Hey, You!

Clothes – Every girl’s weakness and worst nightmare all in one. The stress of figuring out what to wear is an everyday occurrence, whether it’s for an event or just to go grocery shopping. Say you’re having a girls’ night out with all of your gal pals. The first question – What are you going to wear? If you’re anything like me, you pick an outfit, try it on, look in the mirror and say, “ehh” and change. That cycle then repeats itself several times (usually causing me to be late) before finally picking the winning outfit.  Your clothes say so much about you; they are a representation of your own personality and unique style. Maybe you can classify your style as boho chic, gothic, glam rocker, classy, preppy, sporty, girly, hipster, 80s, punk, edgy, western, or just casual. Maybe your style is none of those, or maybe it’s a mixture of all or several. If your style is more punk rock, you probably won’t wear cowboy boots with a flannel and blue jeans for the simple fact of that’s just not who you are. Just because you see someone wearing something you wouldn’t wear doesn’t mean it’s wrong.  It takes a lot of confidence to wear something you know won’t necessarily “fit in.” My advice is to just be you.

Many times when ladies go shopping they go into the fitting room with arms full of clothes, put on an outfit that they like and think to themselves, okay wow I actually look good in this…but I better not buy it because I would probably get a bunch of funny looks. Girl, BUY THE OUTFIT! Buy it and wear it proud! You should NEVER be ashamed of who you are. No matter where you go and no matter what you do there is always going to be someone who doesn’t agree with you even if it’s just your style they don’t agree with.

So maybe you want to impress someone or maybe you just want to look good because you can. It isn’t vain to be happy with the way you look. Confidence is key, and the clothes you wear are a big reflection of that confidence. Buy and wear whatever YOU want and whatever YOU feel comfortable in. I love the quote, “dress like you’re already famous.” Dressing the part is a good start, but the way you carry yourself in those clothes is what matters. So remember, hold your head high and don’t be afraid to be yourself. Being yourself is the best person you can be.
