I don't know for you, but I found the fashion industry "superficial". I love fashion, I studied fashion styling because I love creating outfits and helping people with their styles. However, I discover trying be someone that I wasn't to "Fit In". I kind of have forgotten the fact that I am an outdoors lover, camping lover, sports lover, etc.. and brand doesn't mean anything. I was so much into the fact that everyone else in this industry takes fancy pictures while drinking coffee or wants to have the last Gucci belt and post outfit on social media that looks the same as everyone else's outfit and I did try to do the same to fit in.
Thank God, I re-met an old friend who reminds me, just by talking about what we both loves, that I love outdoors, wearing whatever I want that fit with me and fit with my personality. It's also when I realize that I am more the type of girl who will live in the countryside or in urban place close to the woods, mountains, rivers, lakes than in a big city with all the fancy restaurants and stores. I rediscover who I am and what I love.
Don't get me wrong, I love fashion and I am still a stylist (BTW, I still have my online stylist services available) and helping people, but helping them to have their own style and still be trendy, but by staying true to themselves. If you don't like floral prints, then don't buy it, stay true to yourself. You don't need to wear all the seasonal trends to be trendy, you just need to stay true to who you are and what you love. If you don't know how to match things or how to incorporate a trend that you like into your style, well go check my stylist services. But honestly, best advice ever, stay true to yourself. I just wanna be a stylist, entrepreneur, person who stay true to herself and post on social media pictures that she loves, such as outdoor activities, simple looks that they may not seen to be the latest trend, but that represent who she is than posting stuff that doesn't represent anything other than trying to fit in.
Honestly, if you see my daily outfits you wouldn't believe that I am a stylist and that I love fashion or maybe yes, but usually, I wear jeans and t-shirt or comfy pants and t-shirt or anything that goes with being comfortable.
Of course, when I have special events or go out with friends, I love to dress up a bit and wear a dress with cute sandals and stuff like that but still stay true to the fact that I love simple looks and keep it that way.
I wrote this post today because I have been thinking about it recently and talking about it with one of my friend who feels that same way as me. I am just more into being true to ourselves, wear clothes that we want and represent who we are as a person than trying to fit in and wear things that don't represent us.
Like I wrote above, if you need help with anything, my stylist services are available. There are two amazing sessions options that you can take that will definitely help you. You can write me if you have any questions.
Why fashion has to be superficial and why people think you are a weirdo if you like outdoors (hiking, camping, canoeing, bike riding, fishing,etc..) and fashion?
