Why Is Important Not To Fit In?

These days I'm thinking about this topic so much that I needed to share it with you. We live in such a modern world, where everything and anything is available and freedom is given to you but yet we choose to live in a prison. Not literally, but more like close minded. Look at the fashion, we have one type of a style for girl where she is considered to be cool and everyone is wearing it. Ripped jeans, bomber jacket, choker, fishnet & too much  make up, even if that type of  eyeliner doesn't fit her, or that shade of  lipstick, but that's 'on trend''. I'm not saying that I'm not wearing any of those. I do, but I'm not wearing it because it's cool but because I like it and I can incorporate that into my style. I don't like it when you need to wear certain clothes or makeup to be accepted or to be a bad ass girl. That is going on right now, even though we are aware of it.
 We need to be more open minded, to think outside the box and see the bigger picture. Today everyone is trying so hard to be something they aren't and that's why we see a bunch of girls dressed like an army, they are all the same. I don't want to go too deep into this. The point is you have to work on yourself constantly and not to be afraid to be yourself. I know it sounds too cheesy, but people will always like you because of you, if you are fake they will know it. It's okay to be different! That's the way you are going to stand out from the crowd.

Same goes for the blogging world, if you want to be successful I think that you need to be different (aka yourself)! I'm sure world is overwhelmed with the same uniformed girl. You need to learn to say no and to stay true to yourself. This one sounds cheesy as well, but I see a lot of bloggers who says this and then go and promote stuff that everyone is promoting and are such a big cliches for example: vitamins for your hair, tea for losing weight or washing powder and you are a fashion blogger. You need to think  long term and to ask yourself if that’s what your blog is about, is that representing you, are you standing behind that? I'm not calling out anyone, I'm just saying what is on my mind and how I see it. For me this is my little baby and it's representing me all the way, from the way I talk, think, dress, interact with other people and write. I understand that there are blog & entrepreneurs who are more on commercial side and there are in it just for the money. I don't want to be that person. I think that quality will always stand out from the crowd, even though it can take some time, but you always know why you started and that's what is going to lead you always.

Don't forget:
No one can be you, you are one of a kind.
That's the only way you'll make it!
Learn to say no, stay true to yourself, always and forever, no matter how much $$$ they offer you. Money will disappear, shame will stay.
Don't listen to others, trust yourself!
Don't compare yourself to others.
Work on yourself!

Stay humble and be kind.

  1. Pa ja ne znam koji je ovo put da vidim na tebi nešto što je meni zapalo za oko da naručim. :D

  2. Ana, a HUGE thank you for calling out all these copy cats, wannabes and first and foremost people promoting things that don't even work (slimming teas, like seriously GIVE ME A BREAK, haha) for a small compensation and thus losing all their credibility, at least in my eyes. I, just like you, think that we should break the uniform trends and go our own ways and that's exactly what you're doing sweetie and with that you earn my respect and I'm sure a lot more people will follow!

  7. Amazing post darling! I agree, there are so many fashion bloggers who look almost exactly the same. I think that your outfits are original and I can feel that you have got an artistic soul! It's true- the most important thing is to always be yourself.

  8. So, SO true! Agree with everything you said! Everyone ends up looking the same. It's great to have your own style and way of wearing certain trends.

  12. I totally agree that people should try to be true to themselves. I also think that its ok for people to like trends, to want to emulate others. The problem, as you mention, comes when people start judging themselves based on anothers scale.

  21. Thank you for sharing! Learning to just be OK with being yourself is so hard but so rewarding at the same time. :)

  22. I think in the beginning, as soon as I received an email collaboration, I jumped on it. I was just so excited that a company would even want to work with me. However, nowadays, I'm learning to say no and try to work with companies I really believe in. I also don't want to falsely mislead my audience to brands that I don't like.

  23. I get sick of seeing the same things too, and there are certainly trends that I just do not like at all. Making sure you are true to yourself is so vital. I agree with you there!

  24. I absolutely love this. A lot of brands approach us bloggers a lot and half the time they never fit our niche. I see some people fall into this often. I try my best to collab with only brands I love and use to stay true to my brand.

  25. You put in words exactly what I think!! THis is such a wonderful post! I have never fit in, that's basically why I've never been "popular" and even now, with my blog I'm not popular. It's still quite contradictory for me, because I still care that people would read and look at what I do, but on the other hand I don't want to give in and abandon my "special" personality... I supposed that is why I have 700 followers instead of 700'000

  30. You have an amazing sense of style and I love that you are staying true to yourself on your blog! Living authentically is so much more inspiring than following the latest trends just for the sake of staying "in". Great post, babe!

  39. I so couldn't agree more dear! fitting in tends to be too important for some people and consequently some girls (and for sure also boys) are like a little army all wearing their uniform lol
    I don't like every trend so I simply don't wear it. :)

  40. Very wise words! It can be so hard to stand out among a sea of bloggers and influences, but as long as you maintain your authenticity you'll always outshine the others. Also love your jewelry btw!

  41. Honey, I love your personality! You are so right. I wrote a blog post in which I addressed a similar topic and I could not agree more! Great post babe.

  42. I totally agree with you. I couldn't possibly be "someone else" because I'm too weird to be someone else. We were all created uniquely and individually so why go and copy someone or be someone you're not right? It's ok to follow trends, but I try to make them my own and put my own spin on things. Thank you for the reminder to be true and real to yourself!

  43. This is so great. And I love the darling pieces that you featured. The purse is so cute and makes a statement as do the fun earrings. Great style.
