Did someone say “lobster”?
There are days, when I simply don’t want to think about anything. Not about the food I’m gonna eat, the music that’s gonna play or the clothes I’m gonna wear. Those days, I’m simply slipping into my most comfy outfit and be done with it. But then there are days when I really feel like wearing something super special – like today’s outfit.
But thinking back a couple of years, I would never have worn an outfit like the one you are seeing here today. Not because I didn’t like red back then, but because I never would have dared to wear red on the street. I simply was way too shy.
In fact, I do believe that self-confidence has a lot to do with what we are wearing. Don’t you think so, too? Sometimes, you simply don’t dare to wear a certain kind of outfit, even though you love how it looks. And why? Because you’re afraid of other people looking and talking about you. The one thing I did learn over time was, however, not to give a damn about what other people might or might not think. Who cares about those “others”, anyway?
But that’s something you have to learn over time. It takes years to feel good in your own body and to gain enough self-confidence to wear whatever you like. Stepping out of your comfort zone might be hard at first, but it will be very rewarding in the end. At least, that’s what I learned throughout my twenties.
How do you like my look and in which situations did you step out of your comfort zone for the first time? Do let me know in the comments!
