Hello my fellow readers,I’ve been recycling, donating, and selling off my clothes as much as I possibly can. Closet cleaning has been my mantra during this summer, and I’m utterly excited to change things up before I begin my final year in high school. As dramatic as it sounds, change has been calling my name in the past couple of months.
When I say the word “change,” I don’t just refer to my closet or clothing in general, but I’m also referring to mental and physical perspectives of my life and lifestyle. I have mentioned previously on the blog that I would like to or have started to read more, and I’m also slowly gravitating into the Old-Hollywood movie addiction. However, besides my cultural development, I have also been working on toning my body and getting into shape. This summer was actually a quite successful one because I have managed to lose weight and gain some muscle yet unfortunately, I have lately been feeling as there is much more that needs to be worked on. Do not get me wrong-I love my body and I always will, however, as most likely every girl on this planet, I have certain flaws that I’m not very considering as my “perfect imperfections.” Yet, to each one of you, who might be currently reading or scrolling through this post, please always remember that you are beautiful no matter what, and as cliched as it sounds, “nobody is perfect.” You are smart, strong, beautiful, and inspiring young individual, who should never doubt their inner and outer beauty because doubt is not always right.
Besides motivating myself and others to love themselves, I have been playing with outfits. I’m tired of certain things I have worn previously, and with that sense of fatigue, I have decided to google images of what does it mean to dress like an Uptown or a Downtown girl. If you are unaware of what does it mean to be considered as an “Uptown girl” or a “Downtown girl,” I will clarify it as much as I possibly can. An Uptown girl is the one who is classic and elegant; the one who would never consider the possibility of owning a biker jacket or studded leather boots. However, what is known as a “Downtown girl” is a female, who would never wear a baby-pink cashmere sweater with her fifth family generation’s brooch on it, yet, she would make an attempt to dress in an all-black ensemble without having to go to a funeral. After taking that research into consideration, I realized that I’m neither of those girls. I’m a Midtown girl. Yep, a Midtown girl. I own two biker jackets, yet, I have a pencil skirt and a ruffled blouse. Therefore, I put a spin on my clothes by calling it the “Midtown Girl”: where the both worlds collide. Sounds a bit corny, I know.
No matter what type of girl you already are or will decide to be-Uptown, Midtown, Downtown-or none of the above, you are you. You are one unique and stunning individual, who can conquer the world and do anything you please to do (as long as it’s done without harming others, of course). No matter what others say or how you might feel on one of “those days,” you are you, and there won’t ever be another you. So while you last, make the best of it.
Thank You so much for reading, and enjoy the rest of your day.
