Confidence and the art of 'owning it'

These are some really old pictures, but I'm in a blogging mood today and really liked how the lighting came out in the pics. I'm also in the process of 'styling'/ helping my BFF for a gig outfit (coz sometimes I do stuff like that). Saying she's fickle is an understatement!! Self-conscious too. Self-conscious about how she'll look to other people and in pictures mainly. Not only is this exhausting and takes the fun out of shopping and outfit planning but also really sad. Why should she feel conscious in an outfit she really likes when she first puts it on, but will doubt 5mins later? 

As with most trends, it always goes hand in hand with confidence! With an added sprinkle of not giving a fuck' ;) On the day these photos were taken, I wasn't very organised and I'd forgotten most of my clothes, my hairbrush, no biggie- my hair is a natural state of scruffy anyway haha. And I'd also forgotten my shoes! Thats right, those are my work trainers I'm wearing (really comfy). So having no choice but to wear my trainers with a mini skirt, I thought 'oh well, lets just get on with it' and I actually like this outfit ensemble (maybe with different trainers haha) I now like the jumper/ mini skirt/ trainer combo! I wish more girls wore their clothes with self confidence :) xx
