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?
