Me Monday is a segment I’ve brought to The Couture Complex that centres around the theme of me (or rather, you!). Whether through video, podcasts or articles, each week I’ve chosen to highlight something that has particularly resonated with me. It could be something that discusses happiness, motivation, or self identity. All centralize on being the best you and the life that goes with it.
In the interest of this blog, it’s also hard to have solid personal style if you don’t know who you are. On Instagram, Pinterest and in the media we are always following and admiring women who we deem to have great personal style. Entire magazine editions are devoted to celebrities who dress the best – who wore it better!? Clearly, there is a following for this. We feel drawn to people who fall into that category of “having it all together”, but I think it starts with more than a colour schemed closet or dressing characteristics. (Is she girly? Tomboyish? Edgy? All of the above?) It starts with you. As much as we love to copy looks, at the end of the day it’s called personal style and that means it should be tailored to you and how you feel in order to feel authentic (both to you and others!). All these women we follow and admire have done research into themselves. They are confident in what they are wearing because it aligns naturally to their own identity, and that confidence is contagious. Don’t you want to look that good, and feel that good, in your own clothes? I know I do.
Hopefully, this segment will be a great way for you to start figuring it out!
Back for Chapter 2 is Mel Robbins talking about how to get everything you’ve ever wanted out of life. As she says – it’s simple. But not easy. She talks about forcing yourself to change your habits, getting out of your own head, and your brain’s emergency brake.
I love her personality and she delivers big ideas comically and in a manner that’s easy to understand. This is definitely something you’ll want to listen to if you want to better your life in any way, and in less than 22 minutes it’s easy to fit into your day somehow. You don’t need to watch in order to understand (you can just listen while you do something else) making no excuses for not giving it a go!
