I realise I've been totally lacking on the blog front recently, but today i have the day off work and figured I'd post this summer filled outfit. Truthfully I've not been that "in to" blogging recently, fort many reasons that I'm not going to bore you with now! But I will say the thing I love most about blogging is it makes me feel connected to the fashion world; theres so many people on this planet that having a blog makes me feel like I have my own space, I can connect with people all over the world and share my passion through clothing. It sounds stupid, but I like to think one day i can look back on this web page and see my journey through fashion- I am studying as a degree after all. I think the reason I've not really been crazy about blogging is- and things are about to get personal right now- it takes a whack at my self-esteem. I'll see a photo and be like "Oh god i'm so fat, I can't post that" and have a mini melt down. And thats MY issue (I'm not going in to details about it because I don't feel comfortable sharing that part of my life), and I realise now i need to control it. I need to accept and embrace the fact I'm not a skinny-minnie woman with naturally tiny legs and can look good in anything. If you've followed my blog for a while you can see the difference in how I looked about 3 years ago compared to now, and I guess its hard to let go of. Basically I need learn to accept who I am, how I look; I'm tall, so I'm not naturally tiny, and I have boobs, which in its self is a big issue for me as it always makes me look out of proportion.
I've wanted to write something like this for a while now, and finally had the guts to do it after seeing so many other amazing bloggers do the same with no fear. Sometimes the only way we can move on and be okay, is to get everything off our chests and stop feeling like we're hiding from the world. Everyone has there own issues with themselves, but i guess its about learning to accept who you are and stop comparing yourself to other people (something I always do, which isn't good!). Anyways, I hope this inspires you- if you haven't given up reading this long essay- and its not too cheesy. Its a difficult post for me to write, but I'm just going to do it.
Love Elizabeth xx
p.s I had to post this photo because I can't stop laughing at myself hahhahaa
