Top: Forever 21
I am sure you have heard the phrase "writers block" before. I had something similar to that last week, but instead of my writing skills being stubborn, it was any skill whatsoever I had in putting an outfit together. I decided maybe a break from putting a lot of effort into my clothes was in order. I stuck mostly with comfy sweaters and warm boots. Lo and behold, fashion inspiration is seemingly creeping back into my life. Why hello there, little guy, it has been too long. I think I got caught into the whirlwind of the top bloggers; let me explain this. Many bloggers who have a good amount of followers typically also have a good amount of clothes. And by a good amount, I mean probably a lot more than the average person owns. And the result of this? Endless combinations to which each and every outfit looks completely unique and put together because they have so much to choose from. I was pressuring myself to look absolutely amazing everyday and became burnt out in the process.
So, what have I learned?
I have learned that I am a non working college girl, so I can't afford to buy all of the latest trends or have the perfect pair of flats in every color. I need to work with what I have instead of working with what I want. I don't have to look fantastic everyday because that's not possible. I will have my shining moments, but the majority of my outfits will just be nice. Everyday I reinvent and redefine my style and will come across new obstacles, but mostly the one I face almost every morning. The ultimate statement of "I have nothing to wear." Baloney. I have plenty to wear. Im just figuring out how to wear it.
