I am going to start off this blog by telling you that I am a horrible writer. I have been teaching math for over a decade so words are certainly not my strong suit. But as has been my motto during this adventure, I am just going to go for it. And that's exactly what I did when I had the courage to finally chase my dreams.
For years I have been dreaming of owning my own business. My husband can tell you all the business ideas I have come up with over the years, but that was all they were, ideas. I was too scared. Scared of failure, scared of what people would say, and at the heart of it all, scared I wasn't good or smart enough to do it. I was my own worst enemy, letting my insecurities get in the way of my dreams. This reflected in my everyday life, I was unhappy. This even reflected in my outside appearance.
Finally, one day I just decided to go for it. No really, I was lying in bed one night and decided I was going to start a boutique the next day. And unlike the times before, I finally had the courage to go for it. And I don't think I have stopped since that moment.
I originally just wanted to sell some clothes. Clothes and fashion have helped me in my journey to feel better about myself, but I have come to realize that I want Lyla Taylor Boutique to be about more than clothes. I want it to be about encouraging other women to do the same. I want it to be about helping other women feel better in their skin. and about even showing myself when I am on the hot mess express. (It can be about our adorable clothes sometimes too!)
Instagram and Facebook are full of picture perfect moments, and while fashion and clothes are an amazing part of that, I want to be real too.
