Once again, Happy Wednesday Girlies! I hope you are well. You know what Wednesday means don't you? Guest post time. Today I have a guest post by the lovely Kelsey from Style Me Gone...
I wanted to create a blog about the things I loved for years. I was envious of the people I knew who ran popular blogs with fashion and style and created images of what people wanted to be. I was envious that I wasn't stylish. Why should I start a blog? Everything in my closet was a handmedown, thrifted, or things that I've had since I was twelve (I'm cursed with shortness or something like that).
No great brand names or rose-patterned leggings. Even my sunglasses were a cheap dollar pair that I found in a craft store. I didn't realize that style was more than what was 'in' at that current moment. Style was how I picked sunglasses with an almost cheetah print rim rather than something else.
Style is what YOU pick.
Trend doesn't change until we do.
I started my blog because I'm tired of trend. I'm sad that no one listens to the bands I love. I'm sad that I probably shouldn't be wearing black in the summer. I'm sad that I can't dress up on days that I'm staying home without getting asked why I look "fancy."
We are each an artist and our canvas is our self. If I want to wear sequins to my computer desk, why shouldn't I?
It's hard to break the mould and show your style. I still struggle with it. Blogging helps. But when I'm being myself, I'm a happier person.
Be who you are. Find style by your own taste. Create the trend.
Do you have a style that you find hard to express? Or do you showcase it regularly? Tell me in the comments below (I won't judge)!
