Wearing DKNY hoodie | Cavin Klein leggings | Target sneakers
Have you ever seen something and you’re immediately like “I need this.” It happens to me all the time. I know I’m not the only one, however. When I see certain things especially clothes and shoes, I have instantaneous visions of how I would wear them. Each piece of my outfit happened that way. I was working as a stylist for the hoidays and stumbled upon this DKNY hoodie. It was the last one, my size and very affordable so I grabbed it. I needed it. A day or two later I had a customer who was inquiring about these Calvin Klein leggings. They ended up not fitting into her holiday shopping budget but I knew the moment I saw them they would be A-Mazing with my new hoodie.
Some weeks later after the holidays came to a close I saw these sneakers at Target…yes Target…and just had to have them. I was in love. My girlfriend loved them too and helped persuade me into buying them (not that I needed much persuading honestly). But in my mind I had created this ensemble already and couldn’t wait to bring it to life. My brain works like a virtual closet. I know they make apps for this now but I create and store images in my mind of every peice of clothing in my wardrobe and all of my accessories.
I wanted to get something on the blog for the new year. I’ve become more comfortable with myself physically as I get older. I’m going out more without makeup and loving my skin and my face for what it is. This is a tough environment to learn how to love yourself in and I watch everyone around me go through the same thing. But if we create the love and acceptance within ourselves first we can help those around us feel more comfortable.
I hope 2018 brings a lot of new experiences and lessons. I know I’m making changes every day. On a side note, this will be my last post for a while as I recover from shoulder sugery. I will be reading all my favorite blogs and dreaming of amazing outfits.
