Confidence is Key
My personal style has evolved so much since my twenties. The biggest difference from then to now is my confidence. I’ve never been much of a risk taker with my clothing. Y’all know I love the classics and prefer modesty to being flashy and trendy. I don’t mind showing a little skin under the right conditions, see this post. Earth tones and neutrals are my faves but I love a pop of color here and there, see this post. Blogging has been the biggest influence on my style evolution. I love seeing how real women embrace their personal style and create everyday looks that look phenomenal. I am a style blogger that is consistently inspired by other bloggers.
Stop the Negative Self-Talk
I found my groove when I became comfortable with my body, specifically my pear shape. I use to stay away from certain trends because I had convinced myself I was too fat to try them. Of course, that was complete non-sense. I wasn’t even allowing myself to try new things. I became easily discouraged when off-the-rack clothing didn’t fit me perfectly.
I had to get out of my own head about sizes and not having what was (is) considered the typical body shape. I would love to fit into a single digit skinny jean. One day maybe I will but for now, the goal is to find clothes that make me feel confident and look good on me.
