On Fashion

I've always been very zealous about fashion. When I was younger, my best friend (who is my cousin) would come over in the weekends to my house. We did everything together back then, including plan our outfits, even when we had nowhere to go. We would also where the same type of clothes, as in, if I wore a pair of shorts, she would too, and vice versa. As I grew older, my love for fashion, and my confidence with it, diminished a little bit, but moving to Ireland and growing up in general not only brought that confidence back but also made my voice -in regards to not only my style but in my opinions and values as well- louder.

It's kind of strange how in the five years that I have been blogging, I never wrote about just fashion. A lot of people would probably find my style from time to time eccentric, or "out there," but I can guarantee you that I am 150% comfortable in whatever I wear, whether it be as basic as a pair of skinny jeans or as erratic as a pair of bright orange tights under a black tulle skirt. This, I think is what fashion is all about. Not fitting in, or looking like another person's idea of "cool," but in showcasing who you are in clothes that you feel the most comfortable in, that you feel the most you in. I always feel like my voice is most heard when other people sees what I wear. Whether people like it or not, I am confident in it, because whatever I wear is always me.

Which is why I have decided to create my very own fashion blog, which you can visit it here. This idea has been playing in my mind for, like, two years now, but factors like time and effort and "do I even know how to blog?" kept getting in the way. But last night, I have decided that I'm just going to for it. Although I haven't been blogging as regularly as I used to, it is still one of the main things that makes me happy, and perhaps a new fashion blog like this would re-ignite the passion that I had for blogging three or four years ago.

You can visit the blog if you so please. I have put up pictures of previous outfits that I have worn on it, which you may have already seen on instagram or twitter or facebook. I look forward to seeing you there.
