There’s always so much to be insecure about. Really there is. I do know this, but I choose to ignore any self doubt that tries to creep in my mind. Rather I choose to follow this style tip: If I think I am, I am.
If I think I am a fashion blogger, then I am one. I am simply going for it. No one has ordained me as such. But I feel passionate about style, and I want to help others feel good about getting dressed, so I am embracing this passion. Am I stylish? Maybe…maybe not at all. But in my mind I feel stylish, and so therefore I am declaring that I am.
If I walk in shoes that are ugly, but believe they are cute, then they will be. Tennis shoes luckily are having a come back. But I’ll be frank: they aren’t the cute little black booties I love, or even the ever trending cross-over, laced up flats. But, tennies are working for me and my situation right now. I feel good in them, and therefore I feel like I look good in them. Feeling counts for something with style. Feeling counts for a whole lot.
If I concentrate on that fun flippy curl of my hair, my love of a red lippy, and my quirkiness of wearing only one earring, I will not be able to focus on my flaws like that pesky double chin. There’s plenty I don’t like about myself; I’d rather just find some celebrations instead. Feels better. Finding think I like about myself Feels like love rather than self hate.
If I think I am stylish, I am. I’m wearing all sorts of crazy from stripes to plaid to leopard. I’m wearing an obnoxious tee that claims something I’ve delcared like being a “fashion blogger.” I’m wearing tennis shoes as if they’re stilettos as I’m hobbling around on crutches. It’s all rather silly, but if I think I am stylish, then I am.
Go for it: my first style tip is if you think you are, you are!
