Ever meet someone one that has literally have NO sense of style? They wear leggings everyday with crazy prints of them.They can’t do a proper “messy bun” and they had to google what winged eyeliner was. They have collections of onesies, sweat pants and high top sneakers. Oh, and this person also cannot pluck their own eyebrows to save their life.
Ya, I know a person like that….I am that person! I pretty much dress like I’m 14 and I’m in my thirties. And since I’m in the confessing mood, I also do not know how to properly blow dry or straighten my hair, I don’t know what bronzer is for , I don’t know how to wash my make up brushes, or how to make a high pony tail.
Now before I go on I want to make something clear. I don’t think I’m flawed, ugly or less of a woman because of these things. I don’t personally believe that I need a face full of make up, perfect hair and a flawless outfit to feel beautiful. I am very content in my heart PJS, my messy hair and my make up free face. I very much enjoy my carefree approach to fashion. I kinda don’t give a f#*^ about the latest trends or craze. The reason, I have “get a sense of style” on my goal list is simply because I WANT to learn to do my own make up, dress a little nicer and straighten my hair properly for the days when rainbow leggings are just not okay.
I want the choice wether to get glammed up or be lazy. I want to now how to put a Pinterest worthy outfit together.
You see,In my dream life I am the CEO of my own amazing knitting company. Also, I have an amazing walk in closet that make Barbie jealous, so I need to fill this closet with pretty clothes. When I’m all in a super important meeting with some knitting company or I’m at a glamorous party, I kinda wanna look like I know what I am doing. I want to be taken seriously. And no one takes you seriously when your wearing Batman sweat pants and its looks like a 3 year old did you eyeshadow.
I LITERALLY do not know how to do any of this “girly” stuff, yet I dream in the colour pink and I secretly wish I could put glitter on everything. I don’t own a pair of heels or a little black dress. So, although I will always choose PJS and knitting over parties and fake eyelashes. One day, when I’m on a night out with my girl tribe I want to look amazeballs. I don’t want someone to take pity on me and apply my make up for me when we are getting ready. I want to do it myself because, thats what bad ass knitting CEO would do. They would look like a million dollars and when the day is done they go home and chill, in their rainbow pjs.
So, here’s the plan!
I’m going to be “researching” on YouTube, and Pinterest I will be watching, reading, pinning and taking notes! Basically I’m trying to find the best tutorials, outfits and hairstyles that match what I’m going for. Think fun, colourful and awesome. It also has to speak to who I am. Meaning there is gonna be a whole lot of pink.
I’ll be looking for outfit combos and trying to find something similar to add to my wardrobe! Online shopping, anyone? Then I’ll be using tutorials and books to improve my make up and hair skills.
So to give an you an example, this is my Pinterest account. It’s awesome by the way.. but I have a bunch outfits, hairstyles and make up ideas pinned on there…( and a whole bunch of knitting stuff too).
There is one outfit In particular I’m trying to recreate and I’m halfway there so far.
Jean jacket, London bridge girl is pretty much how I envision myself. I already have the jean jacket and grey shirt…So, now I need black ripped jeans, the sandals, the bag, and the sunglasses So, this month I’m scouring the internet to find those items to make this outfit complete!
I’ll probably be also working on pink hair, and a kick ass make up routine so, trust me you are gonna wanna stick around for that..cause in all honesty, there’s probably gonna be some epic fails!
In the meantime thought does anyone know where I can get some black ripped jeans?? I need them badly!!
Lots of love!!
