The idea of a style post scares the hell out of me. While I’ve always loved fashion (wearing and coveting), I’m so much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it. Thankfully there’s no shortage of cutie-pies in my life to showcase and posting pictures of my friends will help me feel less awk about posting pictures of myself. First up is Kylie!
Kylie is a brave and beautiful girl I know back from my ol’ college dancing days. We used to spend most of our time together figuring out West African dance moves or shakin’ our rumps on stage. She’s already a success at the tender age of 22 because she’s strong, independent, and knows what she wants out of life. Her style reflects exactly this – always poised and pretty, with a little bit of fun flair mixed in. Kylie said her inspiration for this outfit was Carrie Bradshaw (whose isn’t?) and I was basically ready to steal this crop top right off her back.
Though I was cringing editing these photos so graciously taken my patient boyfriend, I know that it’s healthy for me to put these out there. Like with everything else I do – writing, drawing, living – I’m often critiquing myself a bit too harshly. And so in an effort to try to like photos of myself as much as I like photos of others, I give you two recent outfits of mine that feature sweet pink skirts for some sunny summer weather.
Thanks for bearing with me as I take steps towards loving myself. Hopefully my courage will continue and you’ll see more of my favorite styles here soon!
