As much as I enjoy fashion-forward attire, I will always love classic style. I’m sure you guys know this already, but I enjoy keeping things simple, clean, and polished. I’m not trying to make a big in-your-face statement on a day-to-day basis, and that’s totally ok because that’s my own personal style. I mean, my blog’s name is Sensible Stylista after all. Runway pieces are totally gorgeous, but honestly, how many of us could (or would) actually wear them daily?
Even if I could afford to deck myself out in high-fashion garb all day every day, I wouldn’t because it’s just not me. You don’t need to purchase trendy new pieces each week and spend a fortune on your wardrobe to look good. What’s “hot” in the fashion world may not necessarily work for you, and that’s totally ok. Who cares if “x” and “y” are trending? Wear what you want and be hella confident about it all because at the end of the day, your happiness is most important. Trust me, if you feel good, you’ll look good.
If you’re constantly seeking the approval of others, you may as well just ask to feel like crap all day long. You can’t please everyone – it’s just a fact of reality. There’s always going to be someone out there who’s hating on you – your style, your looks, your accomplishments, whatever. You can’t control what they think or say about you, but you can control how they and their words affect your emotions. Wear whatever you want, whenever you want. Embrace yourself fully, and don’t ever apologize for being yourself. End rant.
[Back to today’s personal style post] I centered today’s look around my new lace-up top from Velvet Heart. I paired it with high-waisted skinny jeans to mask potential muffin top and threw on my fave black duster to up my layering game. I accessorized with animal print boots and reflective sunnies courtesy of Freyrs. If you’re looking for cute but affordable eyewear, make sure to check them out! I really like all their designs – I own a bunch of different pairs, and I find them all flattering. Plus, they offer free US shipping so there’s that.
