It's what can make us, break us, Lead us, or defeat us.
If you're anything Like me, You know the pain of trying to put together the perfect wardrobe. You want to have the latest pieces, on an almost non- existent budget, with little to no understanding of how to keep up with the trends. Guys- i get it. It' s exhausting trying to stay current.
For a long time- all i wanted was to be the person that everyone wanted to dress & look like.
as high school went on, I quickly gave up on that goal and submitted myself to the fact that my closet would probably never have a color pallet, would consist of all hand-me-downs, & I would never be that girl I aspired to be on instagram.
until... i discovered the unicorns that are fashion bloggers.
Suddenly my eyes were opened to a whole world of women who knew exactly what i was going through & could give me the tips to get out of my slump!
Fast Forward a couple months, i found Dani Austin & SavannaH Labrant. My life was changed & I Knew I had found my two inspirations for what I wanted my closet to look like. When I found them, I was inspired by the fact that they could prioritize their look, & make fashion their job, but they didn't let it define them. Their worth didn't come from being beautiful & dressed well. it came from Jesus. As social media stars, they didn't act like celebrities. they were just people who were shining Jesus' light & having the time of their lives putting together outfits! As I followed their stories I truly learned how to find the beautiful balance between loving my wardrobe & creating an expression of myself - without letting it define who i was. My Hope for all of you reading, is that you discover that too. Even if you don't believe in God, I encourage you to start looking at how you view yourself & what you feel defines you & gives you worth. IT's always good to step back & have a reality check.
Now, I know we've all read the fashion blogs. The how-to's, the do's & Don'ts, the shopping on a budget blurbs- we've been there done that. S0... what do i have to offer ?

If I could leave you with one parting thought, it would be this:
The fashion bloggers & the instagram peeps, they have it all together on their social media & print. But, in real life, they don't. Please don't forget that your wardrobe & Social media presence does not define you. It doesn't define them- even as perfect as they may seem- it doesn't. So Don't stress about having everything match & be perfect. Have fun! Use this as an outlet to let your creativity & personality Shine in beautiful ways. you are an amazing human being- so don't let your fashion break you or make you, just let it be. It will all come together eventually, trust me.
