Hey guys! The half term is over already, I can’t believe it. That one week off was honestly just a teaser, even thinking about going back to school is so much effort. Anyways, I’ve been on the hunt for some new dungarees for agess and I finally found ones that I like from Forever 21. They are the most gorgeous deep denim colour. They are slightly distressed and a little oversized and I love them so much. I have so many ideas of how to style it with different bralettes and tank tops, but this is one way how I decided to wear them.
Now I just got this dungarees in the mail and I am OBSESSED with it, but no matter how good I think I look in it there will always be an element of doubt in my mind. It’s kind of like when you’re choosing a selfie to post on Instagram and you think you’ve found the one. You look at it and are like YASSSSS GURL YOU LOOK GOOD! Then after a while of looking at it you start to find things you don’t like about it anymore, like the little hair over your face for example. That’s how I sometimes feel with my outfits. I’ll like it for the most part but then it will either be like is this top too tight or does my bum look good in this or will people judge my style or taste in shoes. And it goes on and on and on.
At the moment, I’m in the process of starting to love and accept my own style. With this I’ve also acted on certain things in order to make me feel better about myself, not just for the short term, but in the long run too. Finding one thing that you really love about yourself and reminding yourself of it really helps. For me I love my legs and reminding myself about things that make me feel more confident in myself really helps my self-esteem and confidence levels. Being confident in your clothes isn’t only about your actual clothing but about self-love. Of course self-love comes in time, it’s definitely not something that can be maintained overnight but small steps will lead you to feel good about yourself and confident. And when you feel confident and happy, it really shows.
For me, mental comfort is a big deal, being able to be confident and sure of myself or my actions can be difficult. I mean I’m not a very confident person so I don’t often voice things very easily for example. The things that drive me to feel mentally unstable are simply the thoughts that I have in my head that me drive me to think certain things so much to the point where I’ll actually believe them.
It’s hard to explain really, my ‘Lyrics To Life‘, ‘Under Lock & Key‘ and my ‘Living In Your Thoughts‘ posts kinda explain it better. What I’ve found to help though is keeping a track of my thoughts and how my day has gone. It’s not as much commitment as a diary, it’s just a notebook that if one day something particularly good happens then I’ll write it down. Similarly, if I’m feeling rather crappy and overwhelmed, I’ll write down my moods and what may have contributed to whatever I’m feeling. I’ve only done a few days from April up until now, but I like the freedom that there is and it’s not something that I feel like I have to do because I feel like if it was something I was obliged to do, it would only stress me out more.
Being comfortable mentally can be just as hard as being comfortable physically and I think it can often be forgotten that comfort may not always be how you feel on the outside, but on the inside too.
