This was the outfit I wore yesterday when a friend of mine came over for dinner. By the time she got here I already had this post written, but our conversation made me feel the need to tell you guys a bit more about why I started this blog.
You see, I sometimes I suffer from social anxiety. It isn’t every day or only about certain events. It pops up different times and seemingly without warning. It stems mostly from a lack of self-confidence. Something I’ve struggled with since I was a child.
I believe strongly in the phrase “When you look better, you feel better.” And so that is what it is all about to me: wearing clothes that make me feel pretty in order to boast my self esteem. It isn’t about getting compliments (though they are nice) it is about me feeling better about my own self.
I still have a lot to learn and I’m not all the way there, but this blog is sort of part of my journey to self discovery. It is strange to let people in on this, but putting myself out there is part of the process.
I really do hope to inspire you by all of this. It is cheesy to say, but every person is beautiful in their own right and they deserve to feel that way. It may take some effort and it may be frustrating sometimes, but I promise it is worth it.
As a side note, I wasn’t going to post this outfit at first because it is a little similar to the outfit I wore here. Sometimes I feel like I should wear an entirely different look each time I post. However after reading this article I figured, if it looks good and makes me feel good then why not wear it and post it?
Why do you dress up? What do you guys think about wearing repeat outfits?
