I have been through some life changes since my last blog post… more to come on that later. I will have a lot more time to blog (at least for now) and plan on getting back into the weekly blog swing of things.
My absolute favorite time of the year to blog about all things fashion related.
This time I thought I would do something a little different.
While going through my photo shoot photos from the other night, I realized that our clothes can kind of….teach us something.
We wear what we feel and we wear our hearts on our sleeves.
In the mornings, we go through our closets and carefully choose how we want to portray to others that day, we wear Black to certain occasions, our friend tells us “wow, you have a lot of Black clothes!” while going through your closet-while you may have never noticed before.
We speak as silently, or as loudly, as we want to the world with what we clothe our bodies with.
Here are some lessons from my Poshmark fall wardrobe, which you can find here:
Be as humbly yourself as possible, but with attitude.
It’s perfectly okay to be quiet- if that’s who you are (me.)
But never, ever, ever let people tell you who you should be, walk all over you, treat you less than you deserve.
Remain yourself, but know when to step outside of this comfort zone when it comes to protecting your own values.
Keep it simple.
This means taking time to sit with yourself and learn patience through your process.
Wake up in the morning, wipe the sleepy from your eyes and look up at the sun and how it has risen for you ; the way in which it has blessed and given you another minute, another hour, another day.
For a minute quickly becomes days and months and years and if we don’t take the time to sit with it, really notice it and breathe it in, it will evaporate right before us.
And on it goes…keep it simple.
Daydream as often as you like.
Play dress up with your life and try on as many varieties as you like.
Our choices were not meant to be taken so seriously…
Do your very best and the universe will send rewards and gratification your way.
It’s okay to dress like Fiona and Frank from Shameless.
In fact, I encourage it.
