I was really feeling my outfit today (I didn’t have any hot sauce in my bag, but still…swag). I’m in college so my outfit usually consists of sweats/jeans and a t-shirt/hoodie. This is not my “well, I’m in college outfit.” This is my “I have always worn this style” outfit. But, remember how I said I was feeling my outfit today, well…I was until I tried to “do it for the ‘gram” and post my cute outfit of the day post. Fail. The lighting wasn’t right, I couldn’t get the right angle and then I realized that my outfit was quite…”normal.” I had on skinny jeans, grey knitted sweater, checkered black and white cardigan and calf-high boots. Nothing out of the ordinary.
First mistake I made was scrolling through Instagram before posting my “feeling myself” outfit. I follow quite a few fashion bloggers and today, they all happened to have posted some really chic, cute outfits. So chic and cute that it made me ask myself, “what the heck is fashion sense?” which was then followed by “why don’t I have any?” I like to shop for clothes. Sometimes. Whenever I go shopping I always tell myself that I am going to buy a new style of clothing or buy some more colorfully diverse items, yet I always find myself leaving with my usual style of clothing.
Fashion blogger, Niurka, of Fashion Styles defines fashion sense as “less of following trends and knowing more of what fits the unique “you” and what you’re comfortable in. Being stylish in your true self.” So, maybe I do have fashion sense… or, at least I have an idea of what it means. I find it hard to describe my sense of style and even harder to put into words “what fits the unique [me].”
