Outfits 6 years ago
Photography by Karen Rosalie
Growing up, like many others, I struggled with my own identity and self esteem. My wardrobe consisted of “barely there” outfits, thinking that the more skin I showed, the more “attention” I would get, and the “sexier” I would feel. Wish I knew back then that confidence starts from loving yourself first, and not seeking the approval from others. If I could tell my younger self something … that would be, “You are beautiful”.
Fast forward 10 years, I can say that my style has completely evolved since then. Occasionally I will pull out the “barely there” shorts/skirts during the Summer, but for the most part I love playing with different shapes & silhouettes. Wide legged pants can be so challenging because it’s counterintuitive to what you might choose for a flattering shape. But I love how wide & loose these wide- leg pants are! They are also perfect for my postpartum body- extremely loose, comfy, yet sophisticated & sexy all at the same time. High waisted Wide Leg pants have a way in making your legs look longer and taller (especially when worn with a pair of heels). I’m usually one to pair a tighter top with loose bottoms, but instead I paired it with an extremely flowy and simple split back tank. I find it extremely attractive when a woman can rock a minimalistic masculine outfit. It’s powerful, sophisticated, and somewhat bohemian.
I know I say it often but I’m so blessed to be able to live by the beach! The fact that I get to witness such beautiful sunsets is definitely nothing short of a little miracle. Reminding you guys to start this week with a little bit of thankfulness, and to count your blessings no matter how big or small! And remember… “You are beautiful”.
