be true to yourself

When I was in 9th grade I kind of started wearing whatever I wanted. Style wasn't an issue and a lot of the time what I wore didn't match. If I thought it looked cute that was enough. Even if that meant I was wearing a yellow headband, black shirt, maroon sweater, blue pants and red vans.

Yep that was an actual outfit

The point is, I loved not caring. I still don't. My mom told me that I would look back and regret some of my outfit choices, which is very true. But sometimes I would actually come up with something that looked kind of wonderful. Other times...

Tie dye and sweat pants. Always a winner
Comfort is key
This one is a personal family favorite. In Brazil and looking not so wonderful.
Best part about this, I went straight from dance to the wedding in my backyard. No one said anything.
I went all out on dress up days as well...
Things started to get better when I went to Disneyland on choir tour
But I can't help going back to my over sized sweatshirt, patterned thermals, and uggs
You can never go wrong with floral leggings and pigtail braids
It probably would have been a good thing if someone had said something to me before I left the house in the morning. I guess when you're a parent you have to pick and choose your battles. 

Be true to who you are. You'll never regret it.
