Monday came around so quickly this time… But at least I was more prepared for Mutiger Montag! The concept, that I’ve written about before, came from my blogger buddie Ines and involves everyone wearing or using someone that they usually don’t have the guts to wear or use, every Monday. Be it those tights that are just too bright or that necklace that could anchor a boat, bring out all your stuff that’s gathering dust and love them!!
So, just a little disclaimer – I such at taking photos of myself. Always the one with the camera, never the one having my own photo taken – I just suck.
So anyway. My Mutiger point yesterday was to dress more “me”. I love pink. I love girly, bright, sparkly things. I often tone it down because I don’t want to alarm people. But yesterday in the spirit of being Mutiger, I dressed exactly how I wanted to dress. This was especially brave since I went to an event in the evening where I would meet lots of new friends, and usually I wouldn’t want to scare them away. In the end someone said I look like I came straight out of Wonderland but otherwise it was pretty positive! And I felt more positive too!
Not only was my outfit all pink, but my bracelet too. I love this – it was made by women in Nepal to help protect them from human trafficking. I’ll write a proper post on them later this week but I love this – it’s pink and it reminds me that I’m lucky to be where I am, and it allowed me to help those less fortunate than myself.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE PINK!!!
Yup, even my shoes – which I have previously thought to be too much for work – came out yesterday. BAM!
I really hope we can spread this concept of Mutiger Montag. We spend so much time worrying how other people see us that we forget to be who we are. I love having the opportunity to express myself more in my style every Monday. YOU SHOULD JOIN ME!!
