A while back someone I considered a friend at the time said to me that I “try too hard to be different.” This threw me because I don’t try to be something particular. I try to be true to myself and if that makes me “different” then that’s who I am. I thought that once you leave school or the small town people are more accepting of you but the truth is that there will always be people who are threatened by individuality.
One of my favourite TV shows is Adventure Time. It’s silly and ridiculous but it can be deep too and most importantly, it celebrates individuality. That’s why I wore my much-loved Adventure Time leggings with this particular t-shirt in this look. It says “Sorry, I’m different” but I am by no means apologizing for who I am. I am sorry for anyone who can’t accept it. The leggings are quite bright and busy so simple black pieces go best. You don’t want to take attention away from the print or look like a circus clown. I threw this really versatile kaftan over and finished the look with my ridiculously impractical but oh so fab Topshop platforms and some bright jewellery.
I hope you are having a wonderful year so far. If you’re feeling stuck or lost remember what BMO said, “When bad things happen, I know you want to believe they are a joke, but sometimes life is scary and dark. That is why we must find the light.”
Until next time
