Perfect Imperfections

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” 

― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

What is Perfection? 
The word "perfection" derives from the Latin "perfectio" which means "to bring to an end"  thus literally means "a finishing"... something which is so good that nothing of the kind could be any better and has attained its purpose of being. 
Would you like to be Perfect? That leaves no scope to learn and mold further? 
But then again, isn't Life all about 'learning and growing' ?? 

We are all perfect in our own imperfections. Learning to celebrate our imperfections, improving with each passing minute & growing as we learn is far better than being 'Perfect', isn't it? 
We are all wonderful, beautiful wrecks. That's what connects us all -- that we're all broken and still so beautifully imperfect.

These thoughts were triggered by all the hatred I've been seeing around lately. All the haters on social media, the ones you encounter even on a daily basis, the ones who can't see someone else grow. I'm not only speaking for myself, but for many who have faced this and still continue to face it. Also, I dealt with something very recently with someone close to my heart.

Personally, I've always been sort of a 'Wild Child' - reckless, imperfect & spontaneous. I've faltered & fallen but I got up, learnt from my mistakes and moved on. No one is Perfect. Just a subtle reminder for all of us here, Learn to celebrate Imperfections! :)

The Boyfriend Shirt

Once in a while a trend comes along where we borrow from the boys - literally. There are so many ways to wear his blue & white striped men's button-down shirt, or his white v-neck tee and for some reason, the color white is always ideal. In fashion design, primarily in ready-to-wear lines, boyfriend is any style of women's clothing that was modified from a corresponding men's garment. Examples include boyfriend jackets, boyfriend jeans, and boyfriend blazers, which are often more unisex or looser in appearance and fit than most women's jackets or trousers, though still designed for the female form. 

There are two main important ways to wear the look: making it oversized, and rolling up the sleeves. The boyfriend trend is all about wearing clothes that look a size too big for the wearer. It is recommended to only go up one size. By rolling up the sleeves, it makes the look more feminine and balances it out while implying that the sleeves would be too long for the wearer's arms. 

I've worn loose clothing almost all my life. For some odd reason, tight and fitted clothing isn't really my style and I opt for loose, airy & comfortable clothing. So the boyfriend shirt trend is what I've followed unintentionally in fact haha! Personally, I would prefer pairing up a dull, striped, loose, oversized boyfriend shirt, with a bright coloured bottom like I've worn red palazzo pants from StalkBuyLove here! 

I've been wanting to style the boyfriend shirt for ages now but never stumbled across a good one considering I'm Single! Uh-Umm! I recently came across two amazing shirts one of which I styled here. Can't wait to shoot the other one! Le bestie, P, styled her daddy's shirt in a super fun look on her blog too! Wait till she uploads hers! Hope you enjoy my look! I had so much fun while shooting it!
