Styling my new beaded turquoise necklace
Isn't this necklace awesome? When I first saw it I loved everything about it: the colour, the beads, the price and the chunky style! It is very me, so you'd think that would mean I would have no hesitations in buying it, right? Wrong! I had doubts like maybe it's a bit too bright, too chunky and too attention-grabbing.
Maybe it's just because I've been doing an assignment all week on cognitive-behavioural therapy, but I know these superficial doubts reflect deeper doubts relating to self-confidence. Luckily my best mate was with me and encouraged me to buy it!
Instead of sticking to a no-buy challenge, which is impossible for me because I love shopping, my new challenge is to wear what I want because I love it! No more negative thoughts like: maybe it'll draw too much attention to me or maybe I can't wear it because I'm not thin etc etc. I will wear what I want because it makes me happy!
What we wear should be determined by what we love and not by our insecurities: that's the real daily challenge. Ok! On to the clothes!!
