Confidence check + OOTD

” Be proud of who you are, and not ashamed of how someone else sees you.”

Do you recognise yourself walking down the street,

All alone, with bright new set of heels.

People start to look at you, up and down, their eyes roll through,

And suddenly all you can think is,

What the hell is wrong with you?

“Don`t they like my hair, or my shoes are too high?

Do my pants look dirty or my shirt is too bright?”

All these questions run through your head, you almost brake a sweat.

And you swear to yourself, to never wear this set again.

You have to wear simple t-shirt and jeans, because it is better to disappear in the crowd,

Than feel so green.

But Honey, let me tell you. This is quite wrong.

They look at you because you are fabulous

And would like to remember that look you own.

 

Others opinion is really not in your interest,

So we shouldn’t be afraid whether is bad or good.

Everyone has the right to have their opinion about things,

As well as you do, as he, she or I do.

The streets are your stage, embrace your uniqueness today!

You know, when I first saw this two-set in the store a few years ago, I liked it immediately, since I assumed it looked cute, different, with a hint of vintage feel. But when I got it, one random thought hit me – it looked so similar to old kind table cloth. I simply couldn’t get that thought out of my head and I literally convinced myself that everyone would laugh and point at me if I wore this piece of clothing. Such a silly thought when I think about it now. I was imprisoned into my own made beliefs and I couldn’t wear this item, even though I really liked it.

It took me more than two years to change my mind set completely. Accidentally, I found this two-set in my closet this summer, all wrapped in the back. I put it in the front of my closet and proudly wore it with a big smile. This proves that even our own thoughts and opinions change! Make sure to wear clothes you like and be confident about it! ๐Ÿ™‚

Stylish by boldly following the trends?

You joyfully buy the most trendy jacket and a pair of ripped jeans. Next week you check out the same store to see that your trendy jacket has been replaced by another jacket and those ripped jeans you bought, well, now you should rather wear black leather pants instead… You are confused, a bit upset and get a huge desire to buy new clothes. Does this sound familiar to you?

Fashion industry is a business that has to constantly change and make you buy new clothes in order to survive.

You should also be unpredictable with your style in order to be unforgettable. However, it doesn’t mean you have to buy new trendy outfits every week. You can still wear the same jacket with another pair of pants and blouse that fits perfectly and make you feel beautiful. And you know what? Your confidence and attitude is already irresistible!

You should choose a couple of season trends you really like and add that to your wardrobe. The rest should be your personal style and preference. It is also completely fine if you only like everything that is considered trendy for the moment.

So are you considered stylish by boldly following the trends? Partly yes and no. One thing is for sure, that you will definitely see someone dressed exactly like you on the streets and it shouldn’t be surprising because it is completely normal. And secondly, be prepared to spend quite some amount of money in order to follow all the trends that are being put out for us every week.

My personal consideration scale whether I should buy an item or not usually looks like this:

  1. Whether I really like the item or not.
  2. Whether it looks good on me and fits me well.
  3. Can I afford it right now?
  4. If previous three questions get a positive answer, I will definitely buy it!
  5. (Wow, this item is actually trendy right now.)

From this scale I see that trendiness is not something I look at first and it actually comes in the last place. More important is the personal preference, fitting and tidiness of the clothes. What are your thoughts on this topic? I would love to read it!

Have a stylish weekend! โค

Choose to wear Confidence

confidence-is-beauty

You probably recognise yourself trying on new trends, outfits, hairstyles or makeup you have seen on other people that looked amazing, only to feel the urge to change to something else and cover yourself with a blanket. You walk on the streets and constantly touch your skirt, or fix the scarf and you definitely don’t feel like dancing. When people take a look at you, you immediately think there is something wrong and you nervously look down. What is missing here? Why do other people look so much better in your eyes?

The answer is CONFIDENCE.

No matter what you wear, confidence is the key and how you feel inside. Since the taste is very personal, confidence is universal – it is beautiful and we recognise it regardless of what type of style you like and preference you have. Feel the most beautiful in the room and shine bright from inside and out. Beauty is what you feel about yourself. So choose to wear confidence today and everyday!
