I always admired bloggers and stylists who were able to put together outfits with strong personalities, but I was worried that that’s something I’ll never be able to pull off. However, I started 2014 with a few resolutions: I promised myself I would have more courage to try new things instead of being afraid of making mistakes, and that I would trust myself and my instincts more. But the most important resolution of all was to stop confining myself to a little box of outfit types I am comfortable with, and to have the courage to try the things I like on others, but am afraid to wear myself. The shock and surprise in people’s eyes will not last forever, they’ll get used to a more courageous me in no-time.
As I am re-reading this paragraph, I am realizing just how important of a role fear played in my life, and how much healing power courage can have. That’s what I need: courage.
So here is to a somewhat theatrical outfit that just a few months ago I didn’t think I could pull, and to the year of courage!
