I wish that I could be like the cool kids...

interior-and-lifestyle-blogWhile attempting to take these photos it was raining and blowing a gale. Trying to look casual and relaxed in strong winds and rain isn't easy especially when for half the photos your hair is standing straight up on end like some kind of ginger bart simpson... Oh so stylish!

Ive had the song Cool Kids by Echosmith stuck in my head for the past two days (hence the title of this post) - its been going round and round in my mind. It got me thinking about school and how I never really fitted in with the cool kids. I remember this sometimes being an issue when I was younger; how i'd want to wear what everyone else was wearing, be into whatever was the cool thing to be into. Then around the age of 16 I stopped caring what other people liked, what was considered cool & I was just. me. I was at my 10 year high school reunion a while back and a guy who was in my class came up to me and said oh I hear you're a fashionista now. It made me laugh, I never thought of myself as trendy or cool ever, because now the cool kids are some of the bloggers I read daily & as much as I hate it I compare myself & my blog to them.
I need to take some tips from 16 yr old me who stopped caring about what others were up to and just get back to focusing on being me, because according to that guy from my school some people already think Im a fashionista and thats good enough for me. leopard-print-coat

  4. I think it's so cool of you to think that way and let it all go. Good for you!
    When I was in school I got bullied a lot and yet I still remember not caring about anything these guys had to say. I still feel a little bit inconfident from time to time but I met my friend from high school just a month ago and she said: I thought you really didn't give a sh*t about what they were saying. And she was right! I wasn't! I tried to totally ignore those negative vibe people and carried on with what I'm doing. I am now also trying to focus on that attitude because it will bring me so much further than looking back, thinking about what I'm doing wrong or comparing myself to somebody else.
    We don't need to compare. We are unique and wonderful from ourselves. :)
