Confidence Is Key


We all have those things we don’t like about ourselves. We stand in front of our mirrors and think of a million and one reasons to not be confident. Why? Why can’t we love ourselves. Why do we pick ourselves apart? Is it out of fear? Or are we just blind to our own beauty? 

I don’t know how to answer any of these questions, but I do know that, depending on what I wear, I feel more confident. I’m not sure what it is about the perfect outfit that allows me to be more, well, me. 

It’s not about wearing a certain brand or trend, it’s more about how something makes you feel. You know in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants when they each wear the jeans in certain situations and, in their own ways, are bursting out of the seams with confidence. It’s about that, it’s about wearing something that empowers you to be the fullest extent of yourself. It’s about being confident beyond how you look, and more about how you feel. Absorb confidence and release it to others. Confidence is contagious. 

My froomie (friend / roommate) and I wondered around campus the other day in our favorite and confidence boosting outfits to create this little video. I hope it inspires you to be more confident and less nitpick-y of those little things about yourself that no-one even notices anyways. 

A HUGE shoutout to my friend Jeremy for directing/filming/editing this film. Go checkout his Instagram clips. You won’t regret it, plus I’m 100% sure he’s going to be doing huge things in the future. 

This post is sponsored by Tampax, and I love that their brand spreads the ideals of confidence. They aspire to inspire girls to #WearWhatYouWant and #BeRadiant; I love that their messaging go against what most girls think of when they have their period. Most girls avoid short skirts, white pants, and tight anything. But you know what? If those short skirts, white pants, and tight anything make you feel confident then by all means rock them. Own it. Do you.
