It's hard enough finding what 'look' we like best for ourselves. But sometimes that will cause us to be in a box of comfort that limits how we express ourselves and try new things. Take my outfit in this pic. I do not wear tight-fitting clothes. It may also surprise you to learn I struggle with my own body image: hey, we all do. I have felt my own style getting stale, and decided to challenge myself to wear things I have always admired and liked on others, but never believed I could pull off. Let me tell you, it was not easy to leave the house wearing that. But! I felt so much better after I was out, and started to feel comfortable in my own skin again, and felt a sense of pride for pushing myself to try something new. I was easy on myself. I found something in a color that I know looks good with my skin tone (rose gold) that accented at least one part of myself that I do like (my upper body). From there I layered on accessories that were fun statement pieces, did my make-up in a way I was already comfortable with to off-set the uncertainty I was feeling in this new type of dress, and it was a hit! I'm going to challenge you, dear reader, to do something similar. Embrace yourself, practice self-love, and try something new you've always wanted to try. Expand your horizons!
