style: Thrifted Part 3 - The Skin You're In

Top (DIY Scarf) - Blitz London // Jeans - Zara // Shoes - Zara // Denim Jacket - Blitz

On today's episode of "Thrifted" (lol, I watch too many tv shows), I decided to change my scarf into a top. I got the idea from another instagrammer I follow and thought I'd try it out. I think it turned out pretty well but not without a few adjustments. If you are in the "itty-bitty" department, like myself, I would suggest wearing a strapless bra under the scarf and tucking in the scarf at the tom and bottom of the bra once you've tied in to your desired tightness. In today's world of digital media, it's very easy to get carried away comparing yourself to other and asking why you don't have something someone else has without looking at what you have yourself. In situations like this you can either mope and ask the universe why you were cursed, accept your situation and be grateful for what you do have or try and improve on your situation. I would recommend the last option but in cases where the problem can't be fixed- I suggest embracing it. In terms of body image, it took me a long time to come to terms with the fact that not everyone looks the same. Even if you gym constantly and eat like a rabbit- this will not necessarily get you the body of a Victoria Secret Model- and that's ok! You have to embrace what blessings you've been given and work with that, like I did with this scarf/bra top lol. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this "thrifted series" - I will be back with another series soon. :) - also comment if you have any suggestions on a series/ lookbook you would like. xo
