Confidence, defined to be the feeling of belief that one can rely on someone or something, a feeling of trust or certainty, a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities.
How would you define confidence?
We all have our own opinions when it comes to style. When it comes to patterns and even colors. We become consumed to defining what is "normal" or accepting based on society's definition of normal. But what style could we really define as normal?
It's understanding the artist's or designer's story behind their masterpiece or idea, the pattern, the choice of colors, the image, the collection etc.
So when if comes to fashion, the only rule I would encourage is to be confident. Be confident in YOU. People will judge you regardless of what you do or what you wear. Let the world be your runway and express how you feel through your sense of style. Be confident in what you put together; the prints, the colors, the accessories, etc. Your confidence is what makes your outfit, your collection, your art, your masterpiece.
I encourage you to dress in a way that makes you feel comfortable. Dress in a way that makes you feel like you. If you want to wear polka dots with stripes, go for it. If you want to wear denim on denim, do it. Live to inspire. Live to create.
This week's style is focused on the knit fedora from the San Diego Hat Company. This hat is probably one of my favorites. It can be styled in so many different ways, whether it be casual or chic. This week, I decided to go casual. I paired it with white, high-waisted, distressed jeans that I bought from Forever 21. The top was a little too loose, so I tied a knot in the front of the shirt to accentuate the high waisted jeans. To complete the final look, I wore a black loose cardigan I got from H&M.
Can't forget about the other accessories! These sunglasses were mentioned in my previous blog. They are from the spring collection at Aldo (haven't lost them yet LOL). In addition, the bracelets I wore for this outfit are hand made bracelets from Africa. I found these amazing bracelets at a local market.
What's your favorite spring accessory?
