OK, I have to tell you that I kept looking & then re looking at these pics for almost 2 hours. Actually I will let you in on one secret – Everytime I am writing a new Blogpost I go back to my previous posts and keep looking at some of my old pictures and then think to myself “Are these appropriate??” Should I be dressing down a little bit?? Does this look OTT? Am I going to get judged?? Therefore Should I have been wearing it, Would It have changed anything, Could I have done it better? These and many more such doubts run through my mind. Some sit there for a longer period of time & some get quashed there and then. The only valid argument that I give to myself that this is precisely the purpose of my Blog – to showcase my style which is an extension of my personality.
Don’t get me wrong I am not regretting any bit of it. On the contrary these questions make a good enough base to debate with our self doubts & emerge a winner. We are everytime faced with the challenge of Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda. Second guessing a decision or thinking of an alternate response to a situation may not be a bad idea but its possible to get so caught up in the paths not taken that a person can get entangled in the endless web of Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda blame game. The only thing that works at that time is to act according to best of your capabilities and leave the doubts and second guessing to some other time.
I am so grateful to have my Blog that lets me be myself & express myself in a manner I wish to. I am inspired by so many women in the world in different spheres of life & one common thing I see in them is that they do not want to blend in. They are constantly pushing the boundaries. Sometimes i wonder if they are haunted by “Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda” when they look back into the rearview mirror of their life. Well, even if they are I am sure they are shrugging it off with an optimistic explanation. The point I want to make & at the risk of sounding cliched (but I will anyway say it is) Stay true to yourself. Live freely, experiment as much as possible & let your style evolve. People will stare, At least make it worth their while.
Coming to my outfit – I am not a quirky dresser. Infact I like sticking to classic with a hint of edgy. I wanted to make this one look fun, young & playful hence the choice of this cutesy top & hairstyle. I hope you like it as much as I do.
