Welcome to She’s Not So Basic. I’m so glad you’re here! I decided to start SNSB for a few reasons:
Reason 1: None of us are really ‘Basic’.
Today we have this imaginary cult of “basics”. You know what I’m talking about… You’re in your Ugg boots (because it’s cold outside) waiting for your PSL (because it’s delicious) and your friend asks what you had for dinner last night. You tell her pizza, she tells you ‘you’re so basic’, and I’m sure you can finish painting the picture in your mind.
But you are so much more than your UGG boots, PSL, and pizza! You are Not So Basic. You are the girl sometimes afraid to come out and shine due to surrounding pressures of life. Smart, funny, passionate, and strong. But also feeling a little scared and insecure – sometimes even cranky and gross (okay, more than sometimes on the gross). Sometimes you don’t finish the dishes before bed and you’ve been rocking dry shampoo in your unwashed hair for more days than you care to remember… I know, because I am too!
Reason #2: You know standing out is the new fitting in.
LBH, we are attracted to people who own their quirks, uniqueness, and dance like nobody’s watching. The more we try to limit ourselves by smooshing into a singular box, the more unhappy and insecure we ultimately become #comparisonparalysis. If you feel good in something, wear it no matter what anyone else thinks (except your boss – more on that another time)!
Reason #3: You want to find the style that is authentically you!
Does anyone else feel like the word authentic is being thrown around like a pizza pie these days (ok, I am clearly hungry while writing this, let’s get pizza after!) – But seriously, I want to help you try those trends you’ve been too afraid to try, embrace your differences and switch things up in the blink of an eye to fit your lifestyle. I believe in teaching you exactly how I go from boho to glamorous to rocker to classic in a matter of 14 hours (I change a lot, I know). Inspiration comes from all around me. I wear what I like, when I like, where ever I like. I want you to experience the same confidence and freedom that I’ve finally grown into after years of practice.
I hope you’re looking forward to more from She’s Not So Basic. I’d love to hear from you! Reply Here and tell me about yourself, what you hope to see more of from SNSB (or less of), tell me anything on your mind! Seriously, I’d love to hear from you.
