Hi my loves!
I hope you’re all doing great. So apart from talking about my outfit today, I want to say something about a topic which seems really important to me. Recently, I noticed more and more how girls around me talk about ideals and stuff like that. Well I’m sure the most of you follow some social media stars on Instagram or on Snapchat – flawless hair, a perfect body and hundreds of likes. I mean, it’s great to see what they’re up to and to get some ideas for new outfits or yummy food recipes. But sometimes it seems to me like the lines between inspirations and ideals are getting a bit blurred. There’s such a hype about social media fame and having a perfect body. And apparently this image of the “perfect” body is a result from social media as well. And all the filters and photoshop edits make these lines even more blurred. So many pictures may look like they are real but actually they are not. Guys, please don’t misunderstand me. I love Instagram and it’s funny to see what everyone is doing. But I think too often, some images are interpreted in a wrong way.
The thigh gap is just one example for this. I mean, does it really make you a better person if you have some more space between your legs? I don’t think so… However, some are genetically born to have such a gap and others won’t get it just because their body has another physique. And there is absolutely nothing wrong about that.
So let’s try to make these blurred lines a bit clearer again. Instagram and Co. are there to inspire. They should be fun but no guidelines for how we should look like. Embrace your body – this is way more beautiful than imitating any social media ideal.
Of course I want to say something about today’s outfit as well. I was wearing a layered look which consisted of a long coat and a striped midi dress. To give it a little glam I went for a crystal belt from the lovely Swiss brand piqyourdress. As it was quite freezing that day I went for a suuuper fluffy scarf. For accessories, I chose a black fringe bag which fitted with my black ankle boots. Well, last but not least – the part which is never missing in my looks – I was wearing some fancy ruffled socks. 🙂
I wish you all an awesome day. Be proud of yourself and don’t let yourself influence too much from all these social media hypes. Everyone is different and this is something really cool. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. I always value your feedback.
With love, Carmen ????
