#outfitvibes from yesterday. #latergram #ootd #whatIweartowork
✌️❤️🌈 One of the things I realized when I looked at places to work was how I want to be somewhere where I could be expressive with my #fashion. If you know me, you know I've ALWAYS dressed how I feel and play with clothes in a really fun, quirky way since FOREVER...way before we had Instagram and fb. That's how I have fun, and that's what makes me happy. 🔬
When I was working in a lab for 14 hrs a day, all alone and running experiments by myself with no one else around...I realized that part of my unhappiness with that situation was my inability to express myself through my clothes bc I had to keep it sterile for work. I loved solving problems and feeling smart in a lab, but I didn't feel like me because I couldn't wear the #outfits I wanted to wear and #havefun, #befun, not take myself too seriously, and just uplift others through cheerful visual aesthetics. ☺️
Strangers used to always stop me on the street and tell me how my clothes make them happy, and it sounds so simple, yet it's such a small detail of your whole day where you realize you can help others feel more confident in themselves and show that they don't have to be stressed about taking themselves too seriously. I just want to cheer people on to go ahead and live their truth, be their authentic selves, #LetYourFreakFlagFly! It's sooo freeing to be yourself! 🙏❤️
As you grow and evolve, you learn all of the little deal breakers along the way. For me, I'm Jacky So. What I do for myself is #JackySoStyle. I need to keep that aspect of myself in order to feel authentic to who I am and my own personal brand. If I can't have fun with what I'm wearing as I go out and greet the day, then I'm not myself.
Yeah, we're adults, but that doesn't mean you stop having fun. And it doesn't mean you aren't a kid at heart. 💖😍
So I just wanted to share this morning thought with you, bc it's one of the reasons I was so excited to accept the position of where I work now. One of our values is having fun, and that's a mindset you can embed in any part of what you do. Because if you aren't having fun, are you living? ❤
