Sometimes I feel like we know who we are, what we are meant to do and where we are going in life… Until something happens that shakes you. It makes you wonder if what you are doing is correct. What people think. If your wasting your time or if you should just keep pushing through.
I started really thinking about this recently when I went to an fashion event where I knew almost nobody and being shy found it hard to just randomly approach anyone. I started to wonder if I fit in, should I be there and what I was even doing. I love fashion so much and love to experience new things like this but at the same time I don’t consider myself uber fashion forward. I am a mom, on a budget and I love fashion because it makes me feel happy and allows me to express myself. When I left for the evening I was really confused because maybe I didn’t really belong in this industry. Is this the industry I wanted to be in? I most definitely am not the fashion blogger who dreams of getting that Gucci purse that only 5 people in the world can get.
I went home and proceeded to chat with my instagram friend who is amazing To thine own style be true and she reminded me why I am here.
I love fashion, I love being helpful, I love inspiring you to take back your own style, I love creating a community that value fashion, family and happiness.
Maybe I don’t fit into the high end fashion luxury brand clothing but that’s ok because that’s not who I am. Nor will it ever be who I am.
I like my budget finds, I like getting a great deal. I don’t care if someone has the same thing as me. I don’t need to have that one of a kind because I put my own spin on my style to make me one of a kind.
I hope my experience, although not entirely negative helps you get through your own insecurities should they ever arise. I hope that if you ever get put into the position where you feel like you don’t fit in you don’t worry about it. Remember who you are and why you do what you do. Don’t let anyone tell or make you feel otherwise. You are doing what you were meant to do, you are making yourself happy and you have your priorities set. For me my priority is my family, my happiness, my husband, staying present, sharing inspring styles with you to make you feel inspired. That’s enough for me.
Be true to you, be present and have a wonderful start to your week xo Jen
