Why not wear a gown out and about on a random day of the week? These are the types of questions I ask myself when people give me looks when I’m walking down the street in broad daylight wearing a dress meant for an evening occasion. However, big skirts and gowns are just how I roll when it comes to stylin’ my looks for Wannabe Fashion Blogger and for my life. I just prefer to dress it up instead of dressing down and honestly, why not? In my opinion, there really aren’t any strict fashion rules anymore. I’ve most certainly worn black with brown, I have definitely been seen wearing white post Labor Day, and I like to wear casual t-shirts over my ball gowns.
Something to love about personal style is that you get to pick and choose what best suits you (both body and personality) and from there, you own those looks with confidence. Now, this is much easier said than done. I truly wish I was the type of person that was so confident that people’s looks and glances did not make me rethink an entire outfit or, worse, wonder if they just think I have an odd face (I know this sounds weird, but I am so self-conscious). Being a tall gal, I often have to brace myself to hear “you’re so…tall!” every time I meet someone new or pose for a picture with my petite friends. While I have gained much more confidence over the past few years and can pretty much wear whatever I please without (really) caring what other’s think, I still have those days when I just can’t seem to pull a decent outfit together due to feeling not so great about myself. However, when I begin to find myself sinking into that dark hole, I remind myself that my personal style is mine alone and I shouldn’t let other people’s opinions get me down. To be honest, this is one of the reasons why I started this blog. I wanted to share my sense of style with all of you and it has been the most wonderful (and challenging) experience I have had.
Also, Jonny has been taken on the huge responsibility of learning the ins and outs of our new camera. This has been a frustrating process for the both of us (we just want to be naturally amazing photographers and not have to learn anything!), but I just wanted to give him a quick shout-out for continuing to stay by my side throughout this process, even when I become overwhelmed and discouraged (a.k.a. mean and snappy Tamryn). I couldn’t do this without you, beeb. Thank you.
Have a wonderful rest of your day! Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for your continued support.
