Hello, friends! Today, we’re gonna get real. Today, I’m not wearing any makeup. I’m not wearing any accessories, not even a pair of shoes, just some clothes (because while I’m all for transparency, nudity on the internet is just not my jam).
The theme for today’s Thrift Style Thursday is “Denim Rebel,” but I honestly couldn’t think of anything to wear, aside, of course, from denim. You see, I’m not much of a rebel. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a goody-two-shoes, either, but, lately, I’ve had a bit of an issue with labels.
What am I categorized as? A hipster? Probably. Preppy? Eh, not so much. Bohemian? I doubt it. A rebel?? I side with the rebels in Star Wars, does that count? What does it all mean, anyway, and, more importantly, what does it matter? I’m me. Isn’t that enough? I think it is. So, for today’s post, I’m just gonna be me.
No makeup, no touch-up’s, no airbrushing or filters. Nada.
I have a red nose (I’ve been spending A LOT of time in the sun lately), and freckles, and spots on my chin and a few on my forehead. I have a big crooked tooth right in front that I usually hide for photos by smiling with my lips sealed. Sometimes it sticks out anyway. I don’t usually post those photos online. But out in the real world? I actually only wear makeup about 50% of the time, and I always smile my biggest, most genuine smile, because that’s who I am. So why not go au natural right here on my blog?
The details: bleached denim shirt (GAP Outlet, less than $5!!) // dark skinny jeans (H&M, thrifted via Goodwill) // white racerback tank (Forever 21, old) // pale blue sports bra (Forever 21)
Yikes, those close-up’s were scary. But the older I get, the more I just don’t care. I’m not perfect, no one is, but it’s my flaws that make me unique, that give me character. And before you say that I “have great skin” or that I’m “naturally pretty,” let me counter by saying that you are too! Yes, you, each and every one of you is absolutely beautiful in your own amazing, stunning, wonderful way. Own it!
Alright, now it’s your turn – what do you love about yourself?? Fess up, I wanna know what makes you beautiful!
