What I Wore // Space Heidi


I was feeling really great on Monday after having been sick for about 3 weeks now so I thought I'd rock a Space Heidi outfit :)  Haha.  I just got this belt from Beginning Boutique and pretty much anything I pair it with, I look like I am a teensy bit astronaut or alien.  It's just so shiny and fun and I dig it.  I was out and about a lot on Monday and got so many nice compliments on my outfit, it was really uplifting since I was feeling a little extra kooky with my style that day and I had been feeling so crappy for so many weeks.
In high school and college, I wasn't afraid to wear really really wacky outfits.  I dyed my hair a million different colors from age 12-23.  I have had super long hair and super duper short boy haircuts.  I had a septum ring for awhile in college too and loved it as a visual expression of my confidence in myself.  I loved dressing up and expressing myself in a different way everyday and I was ok with people reacting strangely to what I wore because if there was one thing I felt comfortable with in myself when I was younger, it was simply that I was an individual and I was happy with my expression of self, even if people didn't dig how I dressed.  I would always tell myself in high school, "I can't not be myself."  I would get really down on myself when I felt like I didn't fit in or felt like I didn't relate to anyone fully, I had some really dark depression periods in high school and college for sure.  But I would always try to remind myself that even though I felt alone a lot of the time, at least I knew myself and I wasn't going to change myself for anyone.
Since it is the first day of Spring today, I want to remind myself of that saying I would always tell myself in high school, "I can't not be myself."  But I'd also like to add on "...and CELEBRATE it!"  Spring is here, the sun is slowly starting to find it's way into Seattle.  It's still really cold, but I feel a beautiful Spring coming up and I want to have all the fun I can have this Spring, feeling my best and showing it through what I do, say, how I act, and of course, what I wear!  So space belt, we will be seeing more of you this Spring :)  Do you have any goals for Spring?

I wish my fashion sense was as awesome as yours! It's nowhere near there, but I learning little by little from yours and other blogs.

I went through a phase where I wore whatever I felt like wearing and my confidence was crazy high while I going through it. Since then I have toned things down and kind of matured I guess you could say, but it's still fun to add bits and pieces of those crazy things to outfits : ]

And Spring goals? Hmm. This may sound harsh but it's not meant to be: I need to get it together! I've let too many things slide this winter and I need to pull it all together again. Actually, thanks for asking this because now I have a single phrase to remind me of what I need to do : ]

I am the exact same way with how I dress, when I was in high school I would wear crazy outfits and not think twice because I had so much confidence in myself and I don't know how it happened but I've lost that. The title 'space heidi' made me laugh out loud because that is exactly how I would describ this outfit, I love that white dress! Ali

I love your attitude. I wish I could have been that confident in myself when I was younger, but I'm finally coming to that realisation in my mid-late twenties and it feels pretty good!
