Dressing For You // OOTD

I used to dress to please others. I would put on outfits solely based off of what I thought other people would think was cute-- but not trying too hard. I would over analyze every outfit in the mirror until I didn't feel good about myself anymore. Especially with my fashion blog, I craved comments of approval on what I wore. Even so, I didn't want anyone from school looking at my blog.

Around this time last year, all of that changed. I started to break out of my shell and wear what I felt good in. It stopped mattering to me whether or not it looked like I was trying hard, because I was having too much fun to care. I still get comments from people like "Are you really going to wear THOSE shoes?" to "Those are some big earrings for such a little girl." But it turns out, the more you wear what makes you happy less you lose sleep over the opinions of others.

Iris Apfel said it best: "Dress to please yourself. Listen to your inner muse and take a chance. Wear something that says 'Here I am!' today."

I recently shot an outfit with McKenna that I think expresses my personal style. I hope you like it, but if you don't, that's okay too. :-)

I am absolutely obsessed with these earrings from Lisi Lerch. They also have tons of other styles/colors- check it out!

  2. Absolutely loved this post! I feel the same as you used to, where I put together outfits based on what others will think of them and whether they will like them or judge them. This outfit was the cutest, and I'm obsessed with those heels!
