What are we scared of?

Although I like to think of this as a fashiony blog, and I read so many others every day; I always feel embarrassed at the idea of someone in my classes knowing this and looking at my outfit in disbelief. My fellow students are so casual, which I think has effected me. Its uggs, casual trousers/jeans, hooded tops, tshirts. I usually wear jeans with some kind of long-sleeved tshirt layered over something. I like wearing cardigans too, sometimes dresses. If someone wears something 'on trend' or in a bright colour they really stand-out in my classes. Sometimes I think my lecture clothes reflect my commuter status, I have to travel into classes so I don't want to look bizarre.

I think my current poor excuse for style is a result of my god-awful self confidence. There is a girl in my classes who wears really cute clothes, that are 'riskier' than other peoples and I always love and envy her clothes. She shows it can be done! My classes are all done for the year - I know! - but maybe in September I will find some confidence and start dressing in exactly what I want to wear.

totally in the same boat here! i've been trying to change my attitude though and dressing for me and only me! i always hope that maybe i might walk past even one person who will secretly think 'oo that's nice' and change their day a bit. in the future i think i'll look back and kick myself for now dressing how i want x

You should have confidence in yourself, especially if you know what looks good on you and what doesn't! I'm petite so I know I can't get away with V-necks or baggy tops, because they only serve to make me look smaller. Just wear what you want and feel good about your assets :)
