Get Out and Do Something

by | May 4, 2021 | Fashion

Getting yourself out of the house and doing something that isn’t staring at your phone all day can be tricky, especially during a pandemic. But because teens need to be social and not trapped in one space for a while, getting out and doing things is important. Also seeing your friends and getting boba is VERY important. Whether that was going for a jog, or hanging out with friends, getting out of the house, made me much happier and easygoing. Now, because of vaccines, there is less worry with getting together with people outside of your household and going to stores. 

Surprisingly enough, this actually played a huge role in my fashion. Just like everyone else, I went through the phase where I only wore sweats and pyjamas, but I realized at the beginning of this year that that was one of the reasons why I was tired all the time and lazy. Your outfit not only shows off your attitude but also changes your mood. So if you were wearing a ball gown you might feel like royalty, but if you are wearing all black, even your makeup, you feel goth and chill. I started wearing actual clothes even when I was just at home watching T.V. because it made me feel awake. I also started to dress up more when I went to the grocery store, or walking the dogs, cause why not! Picking out my outfits in the morning gave me something to think about. 

There are a bunch of things you can do to lift your spirit, getting dressed and going out places are just two examples. But you also have to remember to dress like yourself, and if that means as many layers and colours possible, or as much denim as you can get on, then go for it. Your outfit expresses who you are, so don’t be afraid to be yourself.

My Teen Life in the Pandemic

My Teen Life in the Pandemic

Even in a global pandemic, there is still so much to do to entertain ourselves. Just because we can’t have social contact with others, doesn’t mean we can’t have fun and find ways to stay positive.

Live While You’re Young

Live While You’re Young

When fashion comes along, as a teenager, I know how hard it can be to not just dress like you’re 20. But what we need to remember is to live while we’re young. I’ve realized recently, that my fashion and style are slowly becoming things that someone would wear in college, or when my outfits are more businessy, to an interview. But it also wasn’t until recently, when I was so caught up in my blog, and following my fashion dreams, that I realized that I’m in 7th grade, not high school. There is no reason for me to be wanting to intern with a fashion designer now or become a model so that I will have extra money to spend on clothes, or even feel like I need to be living up to my idols. 

An Evolution

An Evolution

2020 through 2021 has been a year of big changes. For one, we all struggled with the transition from “normal life” ie. eating out, seeing friends and family, and going to work or school to “quarantine life” ie. costco bags of onion rings and netflix (but no chill). However, the biggest changes have been internal. Even if with vaccines rolling out, and facilities opening back up, things will not be the same.
