Every Tom, Dick and Harry has a blog these days. (I like to think of myself as a “Dick” I joined in the middle, before it was THIS massively popular. Or maybe it was, I just never took notice. But I am a Dick, never the less)
I have said this before and I will say it again, I do not care much for “Beauty Bloggers”. But I am not saying they do not have a place in the blogging world. They do, some get inspiration from them; some stalk them as girl-crushes. Let them be.
Lately it has become the biggest fashion to post a “Outfit Of The Day” post. Some pull this off seamlessly. Well taken photographs, professional (well it looks like it) make-up. And always a new location. Not your moms driveway. Where you see the barbed wire and the Trellidor safety gate in the back. Now I know someone will comment on this and be all “don’t look at it if you don’t like it” Shush you. I look at some links shared 1.) to support the person in a page view or two. Because most of these ladies are nice, good, humans. 2.) in the hopes that someone will type something relevant or caption the photos in a witty way.
I looked at a few “OOTD” posts last week and saw pretty girls and talented writes posing on the stoep because their blogger friend did it and got an invite to an event, so if not why not right? So I am joining the craze.
Here is what I wore today.
I know nothing about clothes. I’m the girl that wears what she wants and likes and has always gotten by that way. I am no feminist. If you have it honey, flaunt it. But I wear more than cheap or expensive pieces of cloth or leather every day.
I wore happiness – God there are SO many things I get to smile about every single day.
I wore a smile – I hear it’s a girls best accessory
I wore problems – Some days they seem to wrap tighter and tighter around my neck. Then it occurs to me I have the power to take them off and not let it ruin my summery outfit.
I wore beauty – I believe all humans have beauty. Wear it on your sleeve. Show the world.
I wore vanity – We all do. We all make snide comments and boast for no reason. I wear my vanity on my sleeve. Simply because hidden, tucked away vanity is worse.
I wore shame – Around my waist. Because I am ashamed of my waist line.
I wore pride – I wear my pride where everyone can see it because I have so much to be proud of. My work, my achievements but also the pride in the people I have around me. Friends who are doing great things, making good decisions and getting great things done. I am proud of them.
I wore ambition – I sprits a little extra ambition on every morning. People are attracted to it. Try it some time.
I wore confidence – If you wear a black bag with confidence you might be sweaty, but no one will think twice. In fact, you might even get complimented on how good you look.
I wore heartbreak – 100 little things manage to creep into your heart every day every now and then one leaves. Leaving behind a little hole. We all wear heartbreak. Some only a few days a year. Other have it as a fashion staple.
I wore the world – the weight of the world on my shoulders does not make for a great accessory, but having all the opportunities in the world sure does. Its heavy to carry, but worth the work out. I promise.
I wore love – Love for everything from finding the perfect song to start the day to waking up next to the right guy. Love is that miracle hair spray that makes you look like a million bucks. And it’s free. Wear love, it looks good on everyone.
