Spring '16 wishlist.

11:39

I know it's still winter, but this year, for me, is going to be all about floral, girly...confident fashion. In 2016, I'm wanting to break a barrier that I've been trying to break for years.



I don't whether this is just an anxiety thing or whether a lot of other women do it too but does anyone else do that thing where you put on a skirt, a pair of shorts or a nice day dress - you're ready to go out for the day and then something just changes your mind. Anything. From a slight chill in the air to the way your tights ruffle slightly at the bottom. You just start picking flaw after flaw until eventually you give it up and opt for the usual Jeans and a jumper trend that feels so much more secure.

I was told a piece of advice by a support worker I spoke to for a while when I was about fifteen and she said something that's stuck with me since, and it's probably the best piece of advice I've ever received.
To feel confident, you've got to pretend to be confident - smile, talk, make eye contact and the true feeling of confidence will come over time.

So, my logic is, if I wear these clothes and pretend I feel comfortable in them, eventually, with the way people perceive me and the way I carry myself, the confidence will manifest over time...

(Of course I don't mean go full on cocky confident, but by acting as though you're comfortable in your own mind and your own skin and your own clothes...then surely you'd start to feel more confident and more comfortable the more you keep doing it!

If any of you have this trouble as well, I hope maybe my posts this year on confidence, starting with my spring wear trends, will inspire a few of you to put the jeans back on the hanger and whip out something you actually want to wear.

In the next few sets, created on Polyvore,  I feature a few looks I'm hoping to trend this Spring (just need to find the confidence first - and the money!!!)
