Fake it ‘til you make
In the past few months or so I’ve notice a shift in my fashion taste. Items and tends that I never thought I’d like, let alone wear, are now things I’m desperate to add to my closet.
One thing would be dresses. In the past I was strictly a pants, sometimes skirts kinda girl. Now lately whenever I go shopping, in the stores or online, I find myself going straight to the dresses. Looking for things I can pair with leggings or just for a casual day out on the weekend. In the past I never would wear dresses unless the occasion called for it. Now? I look for any excuse to put one on!
I love how fashion is constantly evolving and how you can change with it. For the past 4 years or so though my style has been pretty much the same. It was really casual preppy. Now I’m leaning towards more edgy tends and find myself dressing up more in general. I work in a very casual office so for the past 2 years I’ve pretty much only worn jeans. Now I’m putting on those tweed pants, or that floral skirt.
At first I was a little uncomfortable. Since my whole office is so casual I felt awkward being so dressed up. The more I stepped outside my comfort zone the more comfortable I became. Same thing when I went out.
I’m still nowhere near being done with my “transformation” but I like how I’m changing. I’ve always loved fashion. I’ve been obsessed with clothing since I was a toddler. However I was never able to really incorporate the things I loved in magazines to my wardrobe. Especially since I have/had body issues, I never wanted to wear something “flashy” to draw attention to myself and my body. Even though I’m still unhappy with how my body looks, I’m getting more comfortable with it.
That’s the key. You need to be comfortable in your own skin. Even if you are unhappy with your weight, or have parts that you would like to change, you should always be comfortable with who you are now. Or in my case, fake it ‘til you make. Things are slowly clicking into place and I’m really happy about it.
Have you ever really changed your fashion sense??
