Today’s Stripes

Today's Stripes. 
Sloppy, Sunday comfy dressing. .
My posts are always non-filtered and exactly how I look that day. .
It shouldn't be necessary to filter, Facetune, or create a social media enhanced perfect version of yourself. .
NO celebrity or client I have ever styled or dressed for the Red Carpet has had a perfect body or skin.  You can always aspire to be the best version of yourself but your imperfections are what make you unique.
.
Be confident enough in your own self-image and body-image to not judge or compare yourself to others, especially others' fitered Instagram posts. They're not real.
.
Tshirt dress: Primark
Sweater: Zadig and Voltaire 
Metallic trainers: Superga

#Tbt Me age 15 and age 28

Me age 15 and age 28.
.
.
These photos are pre-social media when there were no filters on photos and no pressures to look a certain way. .
Of course there were those who were skinny too and those who were fat but no-one judged or had anywhere to post photos that weren't real. The only place to post a photo was in a personal photo album which stayed in your living room. .

No-one exercised, worked out or went to gyms in the same 'addicted to fitness' way so our bodies were a different shape and less toned than gym bodies of nowadays. .
Maybe we did ballet or horse riding or swam or did some form of sport at school and beyond but only for our personal enjoyment. Not with the same end goals to have the perfect Instagram body. .
We didn't compare or judge. 
No pressures to look a certain way.
We were happier and more confident in our body image then. 
Free to be who we were. .
