No basic chick

You really don’t look like a fashion blogger… I mean you don’t dress up like a fashion blogger.

Umm..what?

I mean you should really think about it before taking up fashion blogging seriously, you don’t dress like them!

This was a conversation with few fellow fashion bloggers some years back. Those words haunted me for years. Maybe it was one of the reasons why I took an off from fashion blogging for a long while.

I never understood how my no interest in being decked up every time I go out and my love for keeping it minimal, simple & comfortable, disqualifies me to take up fashion blogging? Yes, majority of the girls & fashion bloggers love dressing up and there is nothing wrong with that. But I love tees more than feminine blouses or dresses, how is that wrong? You can strut out in tees, keep it low-key and still make a style statement. So why don’t you do you and I will do me?

Though it took me a lo-O-o-ng time to understand this concept (having low self-esteem s*cks) but now I am back and kicking it! And it’s funny how people now tell me that my style is on point with the minimal trend and all I could reply to them “my style was minimal when minimalism wasn’t in fashion, babe & thank you” 😉 😀

So call me out all you like but honey, I may like to keep it simple but I am no basic chick B/

  1. Everyone has their own style, minimal or edgy. You should dress the way you want to, that’s what makes you different than the crowd. Love the casual style! x

  3. Don’t ever listen to anyone telling you how you should be, Fashion is a form of art to me, and one can express their sense of fashion in whatever way please them.
    I like your style! I’m personally more of a minimalist. I love the sneakers and leggins

  15. Hey, you’re a great looking girl. We have our own style where we are most comfortable with and we can still look fashionable depending how we carry them.

    Everyone has their own style which (I think) reflects their personality and that’s what makes it so interesting!

  19. Those fashion bloggers who told you that are wow, unbelievably bitchy imo. Everyone has their own personal style, that’s what makes us unique and different. Btw, how does a fashion blogger dress? There are millions of fashion bloggers out there and each have their own style. Sorry that you had to go through that but good on you for making a come back! Keep it real and stay true to yourself. xx

  20. Wow, don’t even listen to those people. You look absolutely stunning. And your photos are so perfect and professional! Fashion blogging isn’t about having a certain style, it’s about celebrating all the different styles out there and being unashamedly yourself! Sorry those people were so mean– just keep doing your own thing. Because you seem to be really good at it . 🙂

  21. Your attitude in these pictures says it all!! WHO CARES WHAT PEOPLE THINK! xoxo

  22. I think it’s good if there’s a wider range of fashion bloggers each with their own style. It means that if I wanted an everyday look, then I can get some inspiration from this post. Plus, everyone’s interpretations of fashion is different so I don’t think it was fair either to group ‘fashion bloggers’ into one category 🙂 xx

  23. That’s so silly! Why would anyone even say that, I think that your style rocks and is much more relatable than 90% of fashion bloggers out there! Don’t waste your time on comments like that hun, just do your own thing – you rock at it! <3

  30. I agree, casual in tees doesn’t necessarily mean basic. I believe everyone has the right to their interpretation of what is fashionable. As long as you feel good in your clothes, you’ll look good! Glad to have you back, looking forward to many more posts!

  31. People can be so ridiculous sometimes, can’t they? There’s no one way to be a fashion blogger, and the whole point really is to do something different from everyone else. I think you look amazing and should keep it up.

  37. Love love love the camo leggings! I hate the way some people think you’ve all got to look the same, act the same, dress the same; its just so boring! The reason I like going to big cities is so I can check out all the different trends! You go girl! 🙂

  38. New to your blog! By the way thank you for your lovely comment on mine 🙂
    I love what you said and your response to what other said bout your style. Someone I used to be friends with had commented on my blog and said how I wasn’t a proper fashion blogger because I wasn’t all about the brands and didn’t dress like they all do. But that’s where she’s wrong because if you are just like everyone else then what makes you special and unique? Love that you kept with the minimalist style even though it’s not what everyone else would go for. Your pants have an awesome print by the way!

  39. What can I say, you dress like you want because you’re not like everyone else. Its incredible how a comment can leave such a mark. Glad to see that’s past and that you are back !

  40. Lovely camo leggings <3

  41. I love this post! You are very brave to share this conversationn and your thoughts and I totally understand. Some people think that if you like fashion and if you have a blog you also have to do certain things (like looking 100% perfect all the time-haha like that is even possible). But everyone can wear what s/he wants and look how s/he wants to look. And btw your outfit is great ;)).And you are very beautiful the way you are!
