Fashion Friday

Posted on

My Mommy

My mother doesn’t always agree with my fashion choices or the way I put outfits together, but there are so many things I have learned from her. My mother taught me:

-how to put colors together. (She has an amazing understanding of colors and complimentary colors.)

-to appreciate my body and wear things that compliment me.

-to be confident and not care what other’s think of me.

-to dress appropriately and modestly.

-how to accessorize (she’s got an awesome collection of jewelry).


-to shop the sale rack and look for good deals.

I am so thankful for my mother that loves me no matter what I’m wearing. I hope that someday I can have a girl someday to pass on all of my fashion knowledge. Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there! 🙂

Happy Friday!

Fashion Friday

Change is good. But it’s also super scary because it takes us out of our comfort zone and puts us into a new, possibly uncomfortable, place. Even if the change is for the better, it is still nerve-wracking.

But change is important to experience new things and to move us towards our best self. Especially in fashion.

Not changing can result in dating you. We’ve all seen that lady who is STILL rocking the Farah Fawcett haircut she had in high school.

Imagine if I kept wearing the same outfits I had in high school. Yikes. I changed from that silly, naive girl and will continue to grow and change as the years go by.

Last Friday, I got my bangs cut short by the lovely Jenni at Envision Salon. This scared me to death to do because I was afraid it would make me look like a twelve-year-old (or like Harriet from Small Wonder…remember that show?). I am super happy with the results and thankful I don’t resemble a jr. higher. 😉

I challenge you this week to do something that you’ve always wanted to do or admired someone else doing, but have always been too scared to do. I was inspired by Taylor Swift in one of her new videos.

Here are a list of things you could choose to do, if you find yourself lacking inspiration:

-wear a cardigan instead of a sweatshirt

-wear a pair of high heels

-wear a color you don’t often choose, perhaps something metallic

-wear a bold piece of jewelry

-buy some skinny jeans…and WEAR them!

-wear a blazer

-cut your hair shorter or get bangs (duh.)

-wear a dress/skirt a different length than you are used to (like a maxi dress or a mini skirt)

-wear a belt at your waist

-get highlights or dye your hair a different color

-wear ankle boots

-learn how to put your hair in a new hairstyle

-wear cowboy boots with shorts

-get a spray tan (Check out Raving Tans if you are in the area. Heather is the best!)

-wear bright pink or red lipstick

-wear fun color tights

Comment and let me know what you plan on doing. Let’s change TOGETHER!!
