No Fashionista’s Allowed

To the fancy and the fashion-forward, this post might make you cringe.

I don’t claim to have style because, let’s face it, my idea of casual dress is a pair of leggings without holes and a cotton shirt that is one size too big. Therefore, when I put a pair of jeans on, I feel like a Kardashian primping for the paparazzi (minus the make up).

This is why changing out of dress clothes into comfy sweats is what I am recognizing as my daily quirk that makes me happy. Seriously, how good does it feel to be comfortable? Don’t get me wrong; I love fashion. I really do. I like seeing what the new trend is and trying new things out although I only do it three (if I have to) days out of the week.

But what is the point of loving fashion if you feel uncomfortable in your own skin for 10 hours of the day? This is when I began to change my “style” if you will. Instead of the heavy earrings and itchy fabric, I started to aim for the comfy chic style. Oh, that just sounds ridiculous doesn’t it?

The picture below shows you the difference between my something and nothing look. Something being my actual style when I try to dress up for an event or occasion and my nothing meaning I’m going to class and eating mac and cheese for supper.

As you can tell, yoga pants are my go to comfort for the day time and my black skinny jeans are my go to dress up piece. I wear my skinny jeans way more than I should for a girl with other options but it’s way too simple to pair an easy shirt with and so I shall blame the pants themselves.

I have realized that being comfortable is a secret weapon for me to feel good. I love being able to  just slip off my shoes when I get home and feel ready for bed. Let’s be real, taking off skinny jeans sucks when you just want to crawl in a blanket cave.

So here we go. Think of what you wear when you want to be at your absolute comfiest. Take that fashion mindset you usually have and set it free this week because your wardrobe deserves a break. I challenge you to wear your comfiest clothes all week to break the expectation so many people uphold. After that week is up, I guarantee you that the next time you wear the same old jeans and v-neck you will feel so much more like a diva. It will give you a whole fresh start to beginning another fashion streak (if you’re up for it).

Let the yoga, the sweats, and the over-sized sweatshirts come crashing into our wardrobes this week and cheers to feeling comfortable in the midst of another cold winter.

Until next time!
