Embrace Comfort

Comfy is stylish, when the real you is accentuated.

Aaah, pants. They’re the last thing we put on in the morning as we’re running out the door and the first thing to come off when we make it back home for dinner; well…second to the bra maybe.  

From skinny jeans that give you a bubble butt to spanx that make wearing those high-waisted beauties possible, the pants we wear seem to require sucking something in or tucking something away—like we’re transforming ourselves just to fit into some mainstream standard.  Sounds familiar, right?

Clothes are meant to accentuate what you already have—not change it. If we’re constantly reshaping who we are so we can be like everyone else, how will we ever transform into the truest version of ourselves? How will we ever grow and evolve and just be us?

I vote for wearing pants that let us move, like soft capris. Or boyfriend jeans that let us breathe. Or even pants that actually let us eat. Hello, favorite pair of sweatpants.  Comfy pants give you space and when you have more space, you have more room to grow, literally and figuratively.

Choose to Be a Cool Girl

Looks, Style, The Perpetual YouCait SherrickComment

Being cool simply means being yourself.

Are you a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl? Well, then you always look put together. Do you wear flowy dresses every day of the week? Perfect, that makes you stylish. Do you prefer cut-offs over cuffs? Flip flops over Birkenstocks? Polka dots over stripes?  Great news, you’re officially a cool girl.

Why? Because you’re you and you’re wearing this outfit right now. It’s that simple. Your sense of style is already cool, so give yourself permission to be…well, to be more you. Simply being yourself ushers in confidence, which ups your optimism, which brings you back to the present moment, which makes you that much more cool.

In a world full of trendy insta-bloggers and drool-worthy Pinterest closets, we feel like having style is complicated, like we’re always a little behind the cool girls. We look “sort of” put together and feel “kind of” stylish and wonder if it even matters unless we post our outfit of the day on Instagram. It always matters, because you’re you and you’re wearing this outfit right now.
