Bodysuit: Forever 21 /// Skirt: H&M /// Slides: Puma /// Hat: thrifted
I've had this skirt for a little while and haven't debuted it on here until now! If you're a frequent In Search of Sheila reader you might know that I've never really been into midi skirts or anything body-con until recently. Call it confidence issues. Also, I gotta be real with you guys about something...
This week I've been feeling uninspired as a blogger/content creator and really frustrated that I don't have someone to take my photos when I want. I used to get into funks of comparing myself to others alotttt, but the past 6 months I've been pretty okay with myself. So I'm hoping this week is just a fluke and I go back to being inspired and content. Growing up in an image-based culture has made it hard to not think why I don't have as many followers as her or why I don't get as many likes and comments as I used to. Even as a kid I always wished I received as many Christmas gifts as my friends or could go on week long trips to the beach instead of just day trips to an amusement park. This kind of mentality doesn't just fade away with time. It's a constant struggle to stay grounded and takes immense strength to be happy with what you have. It's something I'm still working on as a person.
For this casual look I paired the midi skirt with a bodysuit from Forever 21. This bodysuit has a really low back, but unfortunately I didn't get any shots of it! Next time :) Also, these slides were mentioned in my June Favorites. I've mostly been wearing them around my apartment. It was so hot when I took these photos, so this is definitely an outfit to beat the summer heat in (cheers to no bra!)
What do you think of this outfit? Do you find yourself comparing yourself to others too?
