Welcome back to the series, “Irresistibly You: A How-To Guide.” The first rule in the series is simply to break them!
But isn’t this a How-To Guide? Well, yes it is my friends. I’m a firm believer in being your own person. Marching to the beat of your own drum. After all, rules were meant to be broken!
After some soul searching and reading a lot of blogs, I found they all had a lot in common. Too much in common! So many people are trying to be like everyone else. It’s like High School! I’ve always gotten slapped on the wrist for speaking my mind when others wouldn’t. It happened in first grade and it’s still happening to me now in the corporate world. I don’t have regrets either. I’d rather stand up and be different than blend in just like everyone else.
I’m tired of books telling me that because I’m a size 12/14, I am forbidden to wear animal prints and colored leggings. We can’t put everyone into a bucket based on size or shape. Sure. There are certain fashion rules you should follow because well, you don’t want to end up on a “Fail Friday” post!
|Most fashion magazines would say that I shouldn’t wear a romper based on my size/shape. I say the hell with them because they are comfy, cute, and I rocked it! Screw the rules!!!!
I am not going to condemn myself to a black and blue wardrobe just because I have some extra junk in the trunk. You feel me? I’m also not going to step out of this house without a good pair of Spanx on when I’m wearing a fitted dress. It’s about knowing the “rules” of being irresistible and knowing when it’s ok to break them. The important part is to be yourself. Interpret the “rules” in a way that works for you. Do you see the big picture yet? Is this making sense?
I want this series to help you become the irresistible woman you were destined to be. I’m not here to dictate how that happens. I am here to help guide you and give you tips but completing the journey is totally up to you. Breaking the rules is a wonderful thing as long as you have the confidence to carry it off and show the world you are Irresistible!
Are you a natural born rule breaker or are you a stickler for the rules?
Stay tuned for the next part in the series, “Rule # 2: Confidence IS Irresistible.”
