SHOP THE LOOK
Being bold and unapologetically myself are two character traits I’ve worked hard to have. I’ve always had a quirky & off beat style, opting for mixed patterns and unique finds over classic pieces. I can recall being in college in Alabama and hating the stares and the “That’s something only you can wear” comments. Honestly, I was uncomfortable being different. I never tried to dull myself, not because I didn’t want to..moreso because I couldn’t figure out how to.
Here I am 10 years later still walking (& dressing) to the beat of my own drum. So this post is for you: The free thinker and free dresser. The girl (or guy) who may not fit in with the masses. The i’ll-try-anything-oncer. The my parents don’t approve of my outfits girl. The friend who doesn’t quite fit in with her crew. The girl who goes against the grain and does what makes you happy.
Society only sees the art you exude. Nobody knows that being different is a struggle. That maintaining a sense of self in a world that would otherwise force feed you conformity is a self waging war. Kudos for breaking the mold and being a wolf in a world full of sheep. You inspire me.
