About Self Confidence

'Talisman' playsuit: Bec and Bridge
Heels: c/o Lost Ink
Leather jacket: Forever New
Clutch: c/o Target x Jean Paul Gaultier

There's something about wearing a leather jacket and a pair of killer heels to inject a good dose of self-confidence in yourself! Transform your thoughts from "I can't do it" and "I'm not enough" to "I got this". I did a photoshoot recently for a pretty exciting campaign (all shall be revealed in due time!) and it was a little nerve-racking. Not so much because I didn't know what to do, but when you start comparing yourself to other people, you start doubting your abilities and appearance and eventually start wondering why the heck you even got picked to be there. A distressed inner voice starts piping up and asks questions like "Was it a mistake?" and "Don't people realise I'm not actually that great compared to all these amazing people"? I'm sure we've been on that mental journey before! 

The thing is we are often so much better than we think- what we see inside could be a completely different picture to how others view us. Instead of thinking everyone is looking at you with eyes of disdain or disappointment, in reality they could be having thoughts of envy, respect or even reverence. Cut through all the insults or failures you may have experienced over the years and start remembering all the compliments and times you felt good about yourself. When I think about the fact that people could potentially be looking up to me, I immediately hold myself better just in the hope to inspire them to be the best they can possibly be. Everyone has their own talents and abilities other people could be wishing they possessed- so everyone has a reason to feel proud about themselves :)

  5. You are so right! Sometimes we rush to think that people are looking at us in a bad way when we don't realise that some actually only have good things! Confidence is definitely a daily thing one should work on. It really does prevent us from pushing boundaries.

  7. Great post. It’s hard to believe that someone as gorgeous as you would ever be self conscious but we’re all only human. I agree that we’re actually doing better than we think but I think when people read a post like this, they realise it, so thanks for sharing! Love the outfit btw, the playsuit is so pretty!

  12. I have been on that mental journey so many times and still have bouts of it every now and then. And it could really suck the fun out of anything. We tend to always be our worst critics and while that has its advantages, it could also hurt our confidence. This post is so on point and very inspiring. More posts like this please. And I love your style love, as always! xo
