We all know the colorful clothes Warrior wore and how his sense of style was unmatched but in a way mine seemed to be too. I didn’t even realize it at the time. My favorite color always has been pink and still is long before Warrior or Dana showed their great taste! I never followed fashion trends or fads, just wore what was comfortable for me at the time. I didn’t care so much what other people thought.
When I was teaching it was so fun to match my shirt with earrings, socks, or hair ties. I even had a co-worker tease me about it so then it became funny to add accessories on purpose! 😜Warrior wanted and needed to stand out to be different professionally but for me it was never meant as an attention seeker. I was just expressing myself and my unique style.
Sometimes all of his gear didn’t match and mine wouldn’t all the time either. Like him, I just loved color and wanted to show it off.
Nowadays, I even paint my nails different colors sometimes since one color seems so boring anymore. Of course there were times I just wanted the comfy sweats and not the stylish jeans or the flats instead of the heels. 👟👠👡 A few years for Halloween I dressed up as some guy characters which shocked so many! Yes, o.k., I was doing that to get noticed but had the confidence doing so.
It’s funny how us introverts can express style or fashion in such an outward way and yet still remain insecure about venting emotions. I have come so far with both of these and am always learning as I go. I need to remember how to stay a strong, confident warrior woman in everything since she is who I’m meant to be.
Fashions come and go, styles change, and colors mix or match. Through all this, one thing has stayed the same for me and that is being independent and not afraid to become my OWN trend setter. Followers? Maybe. But, at least I am fearless in being comfortable with my colorful self– just like Warrior would do.
P.S. The next few posts are kinda “girly” but I hope readers can still be inspired in their own ultimate way!! 💖🌸
