Lately, I have been having issues with self-confidence. I go through periods like this where I feel like nothing fits well or looks good and I end up just wearing the same thing over and over again. Even though I’m thankful for my favorite go-to pieces like bodysuits and a good pair of denim, I just can’t seem to shake that “WHY DON’T I LOOK GOOD?!” feeling that creeps into my head during times like this. IT SUCKS. I hate feeling this way. I have been wondering if I am still detoxing from all the holiday treats I indulged in over holiday break but still, no one wants to feel like they don’t look good. I’m also unsure if my body is changing with age. I know, I’m only 32 but I swear, ever since I turned 30, changes have been happening little by little. Like, when I look at these photos, I love them, but I can’t help focusing on my lack of chin. I feel like in person, I have a defined jawline and it’s something I’ve always liked about my face, but lately it seems to have just disappeared. In person, it seems fine and normal, but I feel like in photos, I’m starting to notice it slipping away. WTF?! It could be a weird angle but still, I can’t seem to shake it off. ANNOYING and yes, a #firstworldproblem for sure, but it still gets to me. However, when things like this start to get me down, I typically rely on some AMAZING piece to make me feel confident again. Enter this incredible faux shearling coat (now on sale!). Every time I slip into it, I feel like a rockstar. Like, legit strutting down the street like a rockstar vibes. I know this lack of confidence will go away eventually but in the meantime, I’m just going to pretend I’m feeling confident by wearing a piece I love.
We are all our own worst critics, which is a shame! And yes, body parts do change with age … and even so I’m having a blast in my 50’s! If you had told me at 25 that I’d be having this much fun at 52, I wouldn’t have believed you! Anyway, I’m all about a rockstar vibe and I LOVE that coat!
