Style Watch: Louisa Clarke

Dear Wonderful Reader,

I present to you Louisa Clarke from Me Before You. I recently went to the watch the movie in theatre and was inspired by Ms. Clarke’s silly and child-like sense of fashion. I adopt more of a simple, minimal style when it comes to clothing, but Lou is here to remind us that its fun to break the rules every now and then and to dress for the inner child within us. Fashion shouldn’t be about rules or regulations. So make the most of your wardrobe by mixing and matching what you already have.

Lou’s Looks Guidelines:

Minimal, natural makeup

Elementary School hairstyles and braids of all types

Short necklaces

Colorful purses, watches, and earnings

Mixed and matched pieces, with patterns

Scarves and belts of all shapes and sizes

Colorful leggings

Funky Mary-Jane shoes often worn with socks

Job Interview Results


Dear Wonderful Reader,

So my job interview didn’t go well at all. I didn’t plan accordingly so I was 20 minutes late. Like I said I tried the honesty approach but it didn’t go well at all. It seems like people want to hear “groomed” answers at job interviews.

I was a little depressed driving home cause I felt like my true self isn’t as impressive as my “groomed” (fake) self in job interviews. But then I realized… to hell with it.

Oh Above is what I wore to my job interview.


Dear Wonderful Reader,

My mama gave me huge, wide feet. I’m size 8 in case you’re wondering.

Inspiration: Be Too Positive

“Don’t look back and ask, “Why?” Look ahead and ask, “Why not?” When it comes to your dreams and goals, be too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.”

Inspiration: Follow your Heart

Follow your heart. Be true to yourself. Do what makes you happy. Be with who makes you smile. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you live. Say what you need to say. Offer a helping hand when you’re able. Appreciate all the things you do have. Smile. Celebrate your small victories. Learn from your mistakes. Realize that everything is a lesson in disguise. Forgive. And let go of the things you can’t control.
