Facing your Fashion Fears

Friday, 29 September 2017

Oh hello me, in a bright red swimsuit, booty out and all. Today I want to talk to you all about something I have battled with forever, and still do, and I'm sure you do too. Sure enough I advertise myself as a fashion blogger, I should be confident in whatever I wear right? Nope. We all have our insecurities - sometimes there are clothes I just adore, but no way in hell would I be brave enough to wear them. Today I ask you to face your fashion fears, and heck, BUY that item, and bloody well ROCK IT!

Swimsuit - Missguided

Obviously, when I go on my holidays I've got to get some cute new swimwear. Bikini's are great for me, but this red swimsuit made me a little nervous. I have no idea why - it covers more skin than a bikini after all, but the high rise on the legs and the bright colour was a bit out of my comfort zone.

I'm fed up of wearing 'the safe' outfit, or outfits for the comfort. I think it's so important, in all aspects of life, to push yourself out of your comfort zone every now and then. Dia&Co have a fab new initiative - the Try-Day-Friday which I love, and here's my first example of that. There are real studies out there that prove what you wear can change your mood, and that we should dress for happiness. I know when mom jeans first came into fashion again, and I thought no way could I wear jeans that aren't skinny, I'd look ridiculous. After a while I bit the bullet, bought a pair, because I loved them after all, so why shouldn't I wear them just because they're not skin tight? And guess what? Yep, I bloody loved them. I felt like a style icon in them, god knows why, they're only a pair of mom jeans after all. They're still my favourites now! Why should we let clothes hold so much negative power over us? It's time for that to end sistas!!!!

So I kept this swimsuit, and I wore it, and I took some damn photos on some damn sand dunes. AND, I felt damn brilliant.

Today I call for you to face your fashion fears. Rock that print you're a bit scared of, wear a bright colour, and most of all, feel great in it!
