Do you watch how other women dress and/or carry themselves around?
I personally don't have a driving licence so I do a lot of walking which allows me for deep thinking and constant observing.
I don't so much observe for trends or style mistakes anymore but rather for the aura every woman gives out.
There is a certain kind of women that seem very self sufficient, confident and very put together and they always grab my attention.
For the few brief moments our paths cross I try to comprehend what makes them so appealling.
Self education project, you can call it, and these are the observations so far.
These women carry themselves in a proud way but not like snobs.
They walk like they have direction and things to accomplish, like they are part of a bigger plan so their walk is lively and enthousiastic but not stressed or like they hurry because they are late.
They are well groomed even if no make up is applied. Hair style, brows, nails ,skin all is well taken care of.
Notice that only now will I talk about clothes.
They don't always wear trendy clothes or are young and thin. They can be any size or shape and any style, age or economic status.
But their clothes fit and seem to be of good quality , good design and clean. What is commonly said is also true, they seem to wear their clothes and not the clothes wear them.
Their clothes have one or more little details that the wondering eye can focus on and be pleasantly surprised.
And one more thing, they know what colors work well together and with the color of their skin/hair.
They seem to have all these things sorted and their look is effortless.
The percentage of these women is not a high one. They are few but then not so few so that I rarely see them.
I call them authentic because it takes a great deal of self knowledge and self acceptance to carry yourself around like that.
It also takes time to organise everything in your life and manage your time to be able to be presentable every day!
Recently, I keep on wondering about one thing and I need your perspective.
Is authenticity in looks a sign of being authentic in character, too?
Some days sporty and some ladylike in style but I always try to stay true to my mood of the day!
