Guest Post!

My first guest post :D This little article is written from Meredith at Growing Popularity.

I’m really a tom boy at heart.  When I was younger, I would buy boyish looking school shoes so that I could play kickball during recess without my shoes flying through the air and I would buy loose boy-fitting clothes.  But, as I got older, my interests and styles began to change.

It was a mini teenage edition of an identity crisis.  It was like, I wanted to buy new prettier and “girlier” shoes, but I wasn’t comfortable wearing them simply because I wasn’t used to them.  The same goes with clothes.  I wanted to buy more feminine looking clothes, but I wasn’t used to the tighter fit.  And of course, I just felt uncomfortable wearing my new style because I wasn’t used to seeing myself look that way.  It made me feel awkward.  And then I wasn’t acting like myself because I didn’t feel like myself.

I wasn’t sure if I could be a girly-girl and be a tom boy at the same time.  Could I mix those styles?  The more I pushed myself out of my tom boy box, the more comfortable I became with wearing the tighter, more flattering clothes.

Whatever your style is, just know that it is okay to grow into something new.

  2. Yay for guest posting! She guest posted on my blog, too. Isn't she awesome?! :D
    And I'm like that now: I'm really tomboyish. But, I'm girlie at the same time. I love to wear high tops, but I love high heels too. I love to wear baggy tees, but I love fitted ones as well. I love dresses but I also love jeans. So... I'm a mixture of both styles. XD
    PS: LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your new background and phrase thingie in your header :D
