I never get too personal on the blog since I figure most people are here for outfit ideas and probably, like me, don't have much free time to spend reading blogs. However today's post is a little different. I've teamed up with Nissan to introduce to you the new Nissan Versa Note, the perfect partner in your pursuit to do more of what you love. So today, if you've got some time, grab a snack and read on to learn what fuels my passion for fashion!
There are so many reasons as to why I love fashion and what fuels my passion for it. It hasn't been easy in the last few weeks trying to post daily outfits because work has often gotten in the way, but for everyday that I don't post, I definitely feel like something's missing. So what fuels this passion of mine and creates a craze where I would rather be shooting pictures than enjoying my weekend? Some of the more common, often used reasons include an outlet for creativity, a chance to try new trends, and recycling what's already in my closet. While those reasons are all true, for me to list those off as the fuel for my passion would be too easy and too cliche, so let's get into the real reasons.
First reason why I love fashion? Because it gives me a reason to not wear jeans and a tshirt to work. I was the biggest supporter of jeans and sweats all throughout my college and grad school days and unfortunately, because I had been in school for close to a total of 21 years, the bad jeans and sweats habit carried over longer than I had hoped for. Thinking of all the different colors, textures, and patterns in my closet instantly excites me and has slowly but surely pulled me away from my old routines. Although I still do wear my trusty Minnetonka moccasins and leggings to work once in a while :) old habits die hard.
Second reason that fuels my passion for fashion? It just makes me happy. I like accidentally catching my reflection in the glass and seeing polka dots or stripes or a bright color staring back at me. I feel more energetic, more confident, and ready to take on the day. One of my friends, who used to work from home, told me that she would get dressed every morning even working from home. She felt that she was more productive when she wasn't working in pajamas.
Last reason why I love fashion? Because it's a good stress reliever. Reading about the latest trends or looking at different ways to wear an item gives me ideas for my own daily disguises and it's a fun way to justify spending early mornings in bed, reading fashion magazines. Too many times I leave work wanting to just go to sleep, but 8pm is way too early to hit the sack. Instead, I'll pick up a magazine from my pile of crisp covers and just relax.
Those are the reasons and fuel behind my passion for fashion. Hopefully this post has inspired all of you to go out and do more of what you love!
