When I was at TJ Maxx a few days ago, I saw a shirt in the Junior’s section that read ‘Inspire and Be Inspired.’ Those are pretty powerful words to be found on a t-shirt. For some reason, these words just stuck with me and as a result, inspired today’s post. Inspiration is something everyone looks for from time to time. Whether it is from our family and friends, social media, or the world around us, we all need to be exposed to new ideas so that we can continue to learn and grow. When we are inspired, some of our best ideas are born and our best work flows. Finding inspiration is wonderful, but we also need to remember that it is our responsibility to inspire others as well. Personally, I want to show girls how to be the best version of themselves and not the best version of what society says they should be. By inspiring others, we not only help other people to be happy but we shine a little bit brighter as well.
I have always been fascinated by the psychology behind fashion and personal style. I tend to ask myself, ‘Why do people wear that they wear?’ or ‘What would make someone choose that outfit over another?’ Fashion allows for people to share a little piece of themselves with others through what they wear and how they present themselves. It provides an opportunity for people to get personal without saying a word. With that in mind, what would your personal style say to the world? Are you bold and confident? Delicate and feminine? Or maybe a little bit of both?
Fashion during the cold, winter months shifts from high fashion to high comfort. Living in New York, I see this occur the second that the weather changes. People complain that it is cold outside and the last thing that they want to do is walk through a blizzard dressed in their best. Although dressing for comfort has its benefits, straying away from fashion too far can put people at a disadvantage. How we dress is a reflection of who we are to the world and dressing too comfortably can send the wrong message. By striking a balance between comfort and fashion, we can combine the best of both worlds. (more…)
Whenever I am wearing something with a little bit of an edge, I always feel like a confident, rocker chic who can conquer the world. What people don’t always realize is that how your clothing makes you feel radiates into your everyday life. Wearing pieces that you feel good in not only increases your confidence but also helps you to be a happier and more radiant person overall. When shopping, I always tell people to buy pieces that are tailored to your unique shape and highlight your best features. These pieces should not only be versatile but also bring a smile to your face every time you wear them. (more…)
When it comes to building your wardrobe, “go-to” essentials are key. These pieces are the foundation for which your entire closet is build upon. Although essentials will vary from person to person, these items should complement your lifestyle, personality, and body shape. Most importantly, these items should allow you to be the best version of yourself.
