Some days I find myself wearing overalls.
A few months ago I bought a cheap but reasonably well fitting pair at Value Village (the most fun place to shop, in my opinion) with the hope that I could figure out a way to actually wear them in public. I've always felt like there is an adventurous dresser living inside me, whispering ideas of polka-dot tights and 80s sweaters to me in my sleep.
I used to be too scared to dress how I wanted. I would buy clothes that I loved and never wear them. Lately, I've found my style. I'm more confident in how I dress and that confidence has allowed me to take more risks with what I'm wearing. Sometimes I get to school and immediately regret my outfit choice, but more often than not I end up loving what I'm wearing and getting a few compliments.
At this moment, I'm sitting in a coffee shop wearing overalls. This morning they called to me from the shelf. Regular pants just didn't seem good enough. So I threw together an outfit and decided, to hell with it, if I want to rock overalls then I can. And maybe it worked, the barista said she liked them. But the most important thing is that right now, I'm loving my outfit and that's all that really matters.
