SELF LOVE X WHITE DRESS

As we slowly ease into the new year, i hope you love yourself more than you have ever done and just bask in the beauty that you are.

The media constantly bombards us with what should be the ideal but i hope that you see passed all the airbrushed beauty and models photoshopped to perfection and just love yourself as you are.

I found this poem on self love by Charlie Chaplin and thought to share it with you all.

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT”.

As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY”.

As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE”.

Here i am styling a simple white summer dress that has been in my wardrobe since the longest time. I love it because its easy to wear and move around in. Added the denim jacket to give it a cool chic vibe. And flats because not every time heels. lol

What do you think of the dress and how would you wear it?

Have a splendid week ahead.

    Love love it! But you already know. There’s something about white dresses, and your makeup is so clean, plus we can’t go wrong with red lip sticks!

    The message in the very first sentence of this post is something everyone should remember and live by.

    Cute dress but the hair is my favorite part of the look.

    You look clean and pretty. I’d probably wear the dress with a colourful sun hat and sandals. You always look so good, Toyin. Happy New Year.
