USING YOUR DRESSING TO CHANNEL HOW YOU WANT TO FEEL.

I have been experiencing writers block today which is rather weird since firstly I never have writers
block after a good day, it mostly happens when I'm feeling low and overthinking and secondly I have so much I want to write about but my mind is all over the place. However, I told myself this morning that I have to put up this post by midnight and it doesn't help that I started receiving messages on Instagram from some of you asking why I haven't put up today's post as early as 4pm. The pressure, sigh!

I have been thinking a lot about my life and what I want to do with it and while my mom thinks I'm putting too much pressure on myself I feel it's rather necessary and it wasn't until yesterday that I realized she was right. You see, I love fashion so much and I use fashion to express how I feel, I use my dressing to help me feel a certain way and sometimes to channel certain qualities. While I am not a fun of prints I love color so its rather scary that for the past five days I have been dressing in black and white (don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with those two colors but its unlike me). So while I hide behind the fun times of the cultural week experience in school it is quite evident through my choice dressing that I am struggling with something.

Well I thought I'd share with you some of the ways I use my dressing to cheer myself on when I feel low. Maybe remind myself what I need to do to get off this funk coz I'm really talented in overthinking. 

Dress to feel a certain way - I read an article I think it was on Forbes about how our dressing can impact how you feel and act through out the day. They even carried out this whole experiment with lab coats and all (I'll look for that article and share it with you).  I find that this is very true particularly for me. I like to pick out playful items of clothing like a skater dress or a circle skirt for days when I'm feeling low and just need to look and feel playful and flirty and it works.

Choice of colors- I'm sure you have come across one of those articles about how what a certain color choice says about you or something like that. Well I find that I tend to lean towards a lot of black and white looks when I'm struggling with something, Lots of bright colors when I'm in a rather chipper mood and of course there are colors like gold and silver that make me feel elegant while red makes me feel very powerful. while I cannot explain the psychology behind it, it helps to find out what different colors make you feel and use that to your advantage.

Try Prints and textures- This one is all me, I find that when I zone out most of the time I tend to play with the textures and prints on my outfit. It helps to have a playful pattern that gets you feeling all nice and playful inside as you run your fingers across it. Call me crazy but it works for me.

Channel what you want your look to make you feel- You have to pay attention to yourself and channel all this small things around you. If you ignore the little things in life it can become a little overbearing so it helps to have such little things. 

Of course there other ways to cheer yourself up like reading memes and listening to Joel Osteen or playing some good music but I like to do this through my style too coz it makes me feel like I am really in control and guess what, just looking at myself in these pictures all happy and playful in this skater dress with a beautiful floral textured print just cheered me up. Follow my Insta story to see what colors I'll wear tomorrow. I cant wait to see what I pick out either.
