Live While You’re Young

by | Apr 26, 2021 | Lifestyle

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. 

I was thinking about college when I realized that my sister would be graduating high school in three years. It was then that I realized how quickly 3 years actually pass, for example; 3 years ago I was starting 5th grade, which seems like just yesterday. And after 20 mins of finally realizing how much I’ve been acting like a high schooler, I decided that being 13 is not a bad thing. There are so many things you can do when you’re in middle school that you can’t do in high school, just like how when you’re in high school you can do stuff you wouldn’t be able to do in middle school. Like how in middle school, school isn’t much of a stress, so hanging out with friends and shopping is one thing that you do all the time. But, in high school, there are so many more opportunities out there, like how certain classes you want to take you have to be at least 14, or the fact that you can pursue your dream and maybe intern with someone who has that career. 

Both being older and being younger have their benefits, but what’s important is to focus on the good. So when you’re wishing you could join cheer but are too young, find something else you can do at your age. Or when you want to fly to New York for NYFW, save it, when you’re a junior or a senior in high school going to NY will be much more important. You want to feel older, but when you’re older all you will want to do is feel younger. So live in the moment, if that means not wearing as much makeup, buying clothes that look your age, or making space for things you might not be able to do in the future. Do what feels right for you, not what feels right for you 10 years from now.

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

How Social Media Has Impacted Fashion Trends

Every decade had its main fashion trends that stayed for the full 10 years, we all know 70’s hippy, 80’s neon, 90’s grunge, and y2k futuristic with a retro edge, but what about the 2010s. 2010 to 2012 was still y2k style, 2013 to 2016 was all boy bands, and then 2017 to 2019 were all repeats of the ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s. It was all over the place, and so far 2021 hasn’t been any different, starting with y2k fashion, then the 90’s, and finally its own style with hints of both the 90s and ’00s.

Let Idiots Burn In Hell

Let Idiots Burn In Hell

When you are expressing yourself through fashion, people will comment on your outfit. And maybe you will take their opinions and think them through, cry, or just ignore them like the badass you are. Peoples opinions are like flies, buzzing around you and constantly annoying. On rare occasion, they will be helpful, but on the more realistic side, they are the most frustrating thing that can occur when it comes to fashion. Whether it is simple, “Your outfit is very bold,” with hints of disgust. Or the straight up, “What are you wearing?” The one sentence that can send you over the edge.
