Finding My Own Personal Style Made Me More Confident In My Body

Whether skinny, curvy, or fat, you are beautiful as long as you are healthy and happy.

Finding My Own Personal Style Made Me More Confident In My Body

Ever since I was younger I felt awkward.

Not about my personality, I was a very outgoing person and still am, but about my body and the way I looked. I remember always feeling uncomfortable in anything I wore and being a swimmer did not help much since I had to be in a bathing suit constantly. Not until recently have I truly felt confident in my body, while I still have bad days, The outfits I choose to wear that fit my body type and style preferences makes a world of a difference.

Around the 8th grade, I started to experiment with my style. So long were the days of leggings and sweatshirts with badly straightened hair. I wore leather skirts and flower crowns with shirts that had quirky sayings on them. I was trying to experiment and find what was good for me, and that is when I saw my confidence begin to rise.

After 8th grade, 9th and 10th slowed down for me, I didn't care as much about style but I did still always have it in the back of my mind. Soon, around the end of 10th grade, I found that confidence within me, and the clothes I wore were the main source of this confidence.

Since then, I have evolved my style into something that is unique to me, I take things that may not look good on my body type and change them to make them my own, or, I pair clothing pieces together that you would never expect.

All in all, my style keeps me confident in myself and affects the way that I carry myself throughout my life.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
