Can I just tell you that I’m so grateful for all of you? I know how much time it takes to comment on blogs and I seriously appreciate it every time any of you takes the time to say a quick encouraging thing. And I’ll be honest, I needed them badly yesterday. I discovered some people on another site basically saying my style is not chic enough and rather dowdy, like in a kind of emphatic and unnecessary way, as if I had offended them with my style or something. And whether or not it’s true (because those are opinions that are relative) and though it comes with the territory, it still hurts to see it. On good days I can shake it off easily because I know that I’m not trying to be super chic. I just want to look put together in a normal way. But when you have a style blog people’s expectations get different and they are quicker to judge you for not looking like you belong in a magazine. On days when it’s harder for me to shake it off (read: hormonal days) I go back to your guys’ emails and comments and things you wrote on that survey to help me continue being me and to keep putting myself out there. And one of the best things you can do for a person is to help them feel good about themselves, so thank you guys, really. Really really.
This outfit will probably not help those people’s opinions about my style not being chic enough, but I wore it and I was comfortable. So whatever. 🙂
