In my post last week on failure and rejection, I talked about how hard it can be for me to post style photos on the blog. That is not because I don't like style - I think it is precisely because I do love fashion and style and putting outfits together that it is difficult for me. I want you all to like me! I want to be accepted, and seen for who I really am. I'm sure that is a familiar feeling. I know I'm not the only one who thinks about this stuff.
When it comes to body image, I've really struggled in the past. But this last year has been so healing for me, and though I am on a long road to health, I have come to learn that I can love myself as I am now. When I find myself doubting, I just say outloud "I am fine, just the way I am." It always makes me think of Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy, which is even better.
I love that this outfit boasts bright color and crazy patterns. I don't hesitate in rocking this stuff. It's a part of me to be bold.
Now I'm going to go make some blue string soup with orange marmalade.
