the girl in the pink jacket

I’m a self-proclaimed fashionista.
I usually fall in love with bold styles and bright colors.
As my taste in clothing has evolved I’ve realized that I enjoy being in statement pieces that force people to turn in my direction.
This pink jacket is no exception, it is loud, furry, and all things extraordinary.
I bought it for my trip back to Vegas during Christmas time. Several times during my airport trips I overheard comments like, “the girl in the pink jacket”. Eventually I started laughing because they were obviously talking about me, but I never could hear what they were saying after “the girl in the pink jacket”. I obviously loved the attention, but I realized that there is so much more to being “the girl in the pink jacket”.

It’s about being an example in society. Being an influencer, a leader, a statement maker. It’s about being bold and being brilliant. Knowing your worth and identifying others worth. Having confidence in who you are and who you will become. It’s about standing a little taller when someone notices you as “the girl in the pink jacket”.

The next time someone notices you, don’t just accept it, embrace it.

Often times when someone compliments us, we say something along the lines of “oh stop”, “no way”, or “yours is better”. Instead of just saying thank you. Instead of just being grateful for the fact someone noticed you.

It’s time we start accepting compliments. It’s time we start appreciating when someone notices us, when someone takes the time out of their day to make OUR sun shine a little brighter.

I’m proud to be the girl in the pink jacket.
I hold my head high when I am wearing something that stands out.
After-all, why fit in when you were born to stand out?
