Capsule #3 / Outfit 14
It’s Friday and you know what that means — #unfancyfriday! I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what it is + why I started it. Basically, I thought it’d be really cool to have a style lookbook from all kinds of different people + all kinds of different lifestyles. I’d love it if you’d join in today on Instagram, snap a selfie of your outfit today, and tag it #unfancyfriday.
Have you seen Colbie Caillat’s new video Try yet? I have to be honest: I shed a happy tear at the end. Maybe it’s just because I was having an insecure day (oh hey, cellulite). But … as a person who has had her fair share of insecure days (and as a person who is fiercely protective of her sisters + lady friends + little nieces) I was glad that someone was out there saying this.
There’s been a decent amount of debate over the video, but I think the heart of it is right on: it’s not so much about whether or not we’re wearing makeup, it’s about our motivation behind it. Are we doing it because we enjoy it? Or are we doing it to find validation + love from others? Are we looking at it as an opportunity to express ourselves, to be creative, to play? Or is it an attempt to hide ourselves behind an image?
Makeup or no makeup, that’s up to you. I believe the most important thing is that you take good care of you + that heart of yours first.
