“When a woman says, ‘I have nothing to wear!’ What she really means is, ‘There’s nothing here for who I am today.'” -Caitlin Moran
Caitlin Moran is a British author and a very opinionated woman. She is quoted for many things, including the one I have placed above. I chose this particular quote because it couldn’t be more accurate for me personally. Every day I am slightly different, every day I express more of myself in the outfit I wear than through actual words.
I never stay with one style, I jump from this to that. Some people might say that is chaotic and indecisive. I say it makes things interesting. Not every day am I feeling the pink and butterflies, then again not every day am I feeling the grey, rainy day vibe.
From yesterday to today, I have completely flipped what I wore. Yesterday, I wore vibrant, flowing pieces. I even danced in the street laughing! Just simply being silly and enjoying the day. (By the way, this outfit is entirely from Plato’s Closet.)
But today is a different day, today is dark and rainy. Today I wore dark colors, items that don’t draw attention and create a peppy atmosphere. More of a serious outfit that doesn’t bring an awe factor. It’s simply put, an average outfit.
Much of my fashion choices do include the weather forecast (I check The forecast every morning). But I also wear what I’m feeling. Most girls do, I mean, if you don’t feel so hot, you know you reach for those favored sweat pants or leggings. But if you feel on top of the world, you reach for those jaw dropping items that make people go ‘wow’. You feel good, you look good, that’s just how it works.
Each day is something new to be experienced, and each day gives me the chance to mix and match my clothes. I’m not one to stick to one style, I experiment and try all kinds. In no way am I bashing those who stick to a genre of clothes, it’s just not my way. I attempt to rock them all, bringing my own twist to everything.
Instead of copying something exactly, I enjoy making the outfit my own. Making the style suit me no matter what it might be. Grunge, girly, boho, chic, I have attempted them all. But each time I do, it’s not someone else’s idea. I encourage you to do the same. Make the outfit you, make it speak of how you feel and how you want to be seen. No, it’s not all about the clothes, but they do help us reveal things about ourselves. Whatever you feel, whatever you want to convey to the world, do it in your way. Love your fashion, and most importantly love yourself.
