Yes, She is

It’s been a while since my last post. School requirements have made my schedule hectic, but I love every moment of it. Anyways, I saw this while browsing through my facebook news feed:

“One day it just clicks. You realize what’s important and what isn’t. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that you would never recover. And you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.”

I cannot emphasize enough how much this spoke to me. I think I’m still in the process of getting there, but I also think I’ve already come a long way. I still get insecure at times, but I quickly recover by thinking “what matters is what I think of myself”. Plenty of times people tell me that they admire my courage. Whenever they do, I question myself. I never thought of myself as someone worthy to receive that kind of admiration. I only did what I thought was right for me. I only acted upon my urge to do what I think would make me happy. Come to think of it though, prior to everything, I really was in that hell hole wherein I almost believed that I wouldn’t be able to get out of. Who knew I’d have the guts to do the things I did? Now, I can totally look back and smile. I guess I really am courageous and bold. I better believe it. I’m excited to gain more experiences and see what more I could achieve. Life goals, I’m coming at you!

As for what I’m wearing, if you are curious, I got this totally cute skirt from SheIn. It’s their Vertical Striped Bow Pom-pom Hem Skirt. If you love it on the photo, you’d love it more on you! You can purchase yours by clicking this link. The funny thing is, on the model, it’s a midi skirt. On me, it’s a maxi. I’m so tiny! LOL I believe my fellow petite girls would understand. Midi or Maxi, it looks super cute either way though right?

HOW TO STYLE IT: LAGOS

It’s no secret that women have different style preferences. Some of us prefer outfits that are edgy, preppy, boho, glam, feminine, etc. It all depends on our personal aesthetics. If given a single item, say for instance a plain white shirt, we’d sure enough have a zillion different ideas on how we could style that item. Of course, that scenario is not limited to shirts only; The same goes for other fashion items and clothing pieces. Allow us to show you five different ways to style one of my favourite Passionista pieces, the LAGOS.

 

EDGY

Pair your Lagos with a chic leather jacket, gladiator sandals, and a bold red lip. Make people wonder, “Kendall Jenner is that you?”

PREPPY

Feeling preppy? Underneath your Lagos, wear a long sleeved, white button up blouse with a front ribbon. Put on some oxford pumps, over the knee or thigh high tights, and a cute hat.

 

 

 

 

 BOHO

Be chill and boho chic by pairing your Lagos with a printed Kimono, cute lace-up sandals, and a fringed bag. Top it all off with a flower crown.

 

 

 

 

GLAM

Go for the gold and get glam by wearing a metallic blazer over your Lagos. With that, wear toned down items like a simple suede sandal and a small black clutch to balance the whole look.

 

 

FEMININE

Scream Queens anyone? If you watch that show, you’ll know what I mean when I say I get inspired style-wise by Chanel and her minions. Get a similar look by pairing your Lagos with a faux fur coat, thigh high boots, and cat-eye sunnies.
