That Rachel Green Skirt

How many times have I watched the whole series of Friends since it's been on Netflix? Too many times to count. How many times am I planning to watch the whole thing again? I wouldn't be able imagine a number. I am obsessed. One of the things I'm obsessed with in the series is Rachel Greens' style. She always looks so chic and wears so many interesting outfits. I've noticed when I've been watching is that she is a fan of the mini skirt and I am here for it.

I saw this skirt on ASOS and I instantly fell in love with it. It was around the time that I was watching Friends religiously. So I definitely took some inspiration from Rachels' style for this outfit.
Inspiration and influence is a funny things and I do find it strange how people do things because of what other do. I guess it is a natural thing and it happens all the time, especially in the blogging industry or celebrity culture. You see a photo of someone you admire, love what they're wearing and because they're wearing it, it gives you that little nudge to buy it.

Although I don't particularly look up to Rachel Greens' character, I do love her style and I definitely remember thinking that this is the sort of outfit she'd wear. So the thought and the influence did still run through my mind as I was buying it. It is hard to keep thinking for yourself in a world of social media, influencers and people telling you what to do, think and look like. I've found myself thinking 'do I want this because I want it, or because Kim Kardashian is wearing it?'. Most of the time it's something that I love but there's always a cheeky purchase because Kimmy K has something similar. This idea of us being influenced to do things, whether it's something we want to do or not, is probably why it's so hard sometimes to be ourselves.

I have found it fairly hard to understand what sort of person I am at times. Comparing myself to others is something I do quite a lot and it's obviously not a healthy habit. I'm trying to understand for myself that there's nothing wrong with looking up to people or buying things because your favourite celebrity is wearing it. Although I need to think for myself, learn what I like and don't. I've started to understand that what some people do or what they wear won't always suit me or my lifestyle, and that's okay. You can still be inspired by others without compromising your own loves and passions.

These influences and inspirations I have like Dua Lipa's cool girl vibes, Rachel Greens' style and even the Kardashians in general are so okay to have. However I can't get lost in their lives and neglect my own. I know this skirt is one simple thing but as you guys will know - especially if you've read my most recent blog post - that fashion represents a lot for me. I love this outfit so much and feel really 'me' in it, even if it was influenced by Rachel Green.
