my personal style is called “i don’t have the money for my preferred aesthetic”
“Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining.”note to self (via rajkumaris)

We don’t all “follow trends” to fit in or “be cool.”
Some of us are actually passionate and enthusiastic about things and don’t appreciate being viewed as a sheep.
