Hello! I wanted to start off by saying thank you to everyone for the positive response from my first post in the Dreamer Style series. It seems many of you agree with my view of fashion and that it is so much more than just an outfit. I am beyond thrilled to be sharing this side of my life and bring my love and perspective of style to the site.
Something I have been thinking a lot about lately is the many ways clothing affects our energy. The outfit itself instantly shows the world how we feel in our skin, which directly translates into the energy we are bringing forward that day. The actual clothing tells each person we encounter more about who we are. I am not talking about putting your style in a box labeled “boho” or “hipster”, I am deeply against these labels and believe they hinder creativity. It is more about dressing for the person you are or imagine yourself to be. Whether that is professional in a sleek dress or relaxed in distressed denim (or really whatever is inspiring you that day). There is a tremendous amount of power in this knowledge and it is exciting that we are given the chance to express ourselves every single day without saying a word.
To me, feeling good and being comfortable go hand-in-hand. I never understood the idea of discomfort in the name of fashion. Right now I can’t get enough of light + loose shirts, white boyfriend shorts, and mules. As seen by my last outfit post they are definitely my shoe of choice right now.
How do you feel when you get dressed? Does choosing your outfit come easy or is it a stressful event? Let me know in the comments below!
