When I wore this beautiful autumnal embroidered Zara shirt in New York, I caught a glimpse of myself in a shop window just after we left the hotel and I ended up having one of those days where I immediately wanted to go back to the hotel to change because I felt so self conscious in it! Sometimes in buttoned up shirts I have a wee complex that my face/head looks massive lol..is that just me?? Anyway, we had too many tourist activities to do so I couldn’t go back and change!
However my day turned around thanks to a number of random American girls. My boyfriend could not stop laughing because suddenly throughout the day multiple women stopped me in the street and in the shops to ask where my shirt was from…it just kept happening! One woman even ran after me to ask! It happened so often that James placed a bet on how many compliments I could get and kept calling me “billy big baws” haha.
It really made me stop and think about how complimenting someone can really brighten someone’s day and that I should start doing it more often!
