BeYOU {Instagram Shots}

Always be a first rate version of yourself,
instead of a second rate version of somebody else. ~Judy Garland

Do you ever find you are complimented the most when you are
truly comfortable or confident in your appearance? 
Even if you have a unique style, when you are true it, people pick up on that self confidence...and that is attractive.

Whether it be home decor or what to wear,
I believe there is only one you.  

The way you dress yourself, or decorate your home, is a form of self expression.  I say as long as you feel authentic to yourself and surround yourself with things you love, that make you feel happy,
 you've done good.

We don't need to exactly follow the latest fad .
Instead gather inspiration from different styles, eras, or
trends to make your own authentic look.

I have done this many times...

Buying something I see on display to decorate my home and when I get it in my house, everything just feels off...

Or forced an outfit that looks amazing on someone else, 
{probably because they are dressing to authentically express themselves}, only to find I feel insecure and awkward.

Wearing mixed colors, patterns, textures, and styles is when I feel best.
A super polished look or matching too much makes me feel uncomfortable.
The complete opposite could be true for you...that is what makes us each so interesting as individuals.  Let's embrace it! 

Owl Shirt: Thrifted
Stripes: TJ Maxx
Vintage Leather Cuff: Rustik Chic
Skinny Zippered Cargos: American Eagle (last year Clearance)
Corduroy Loafers: Roxy (2009)

I felt good this me. :)

When do you feel most like 'you'?
