Krystin Hargrove-Be Loud Be You

I’m so excited to announce I’m offering personal shopping services here on the blog. Over the years I’ve been back and forth about doing this, mainly because the timing wasn’t right until now. I’m looking forward to this expansion of the site and can’t wait to connect with some of you on a more personal level. You can click the Services option via my new homepage or on the top left of the blogs navigation bar.

I shot a few looks with Crystal last week, it’s funny, I have this love hate relationship with outfit posts. Part of me feels silly still doing this. I don’t want to come off the wrong way but style comes so naturally to me I don’t really think much about it until someone points it out these days. Becoming a mom 7 years ago and now having two children I get dressed for so many different reasons than before. But the most important reason is because it’s who I am, I love expressing myself this way, always have and always will.

I have a very particular eye for style. When I started my site I wanted to showcase that through me, personal gain and recognition is what I wanted to achieve. I don’t think there is anything wrong with that to be clear. I think your craft wherever it is, is yours and you should receive the recognition you deserve from the work you put into the atmosphere.

But as I’ve grown as a person and in my purpose I realize that I don’t aspire to be recognized for what I put on my body. That I’d rather be recognized for how I make other people feel helping them express themselves through the element of style. I think that’s a powerful thing to be known for, helping people feel beautiful in ways that outwardly reflect what’s beautiful inside of them. I think ultimately that’s what style is and that’s very different than fashion. Fashion to me is temporary, it has this undertone of short term not longevity. Style is so beautiful because it's not just what you wear but how you carry yourself, it’s how you make people feel when you come and when you go. It’s more of an energy than anything which is why two people can wear the exact same thing but you connect with them in totally different ways.

It makes a lot of sense for me to offer services now because a lot about who I am is driven by encouraging people to be free and express themselves, style is a powerful way to do that. I think about things a lot differently these days in terms of what my goals are continuing this site. Coming full circle into who I am and what my gifts are is the reason for my change in perspective. I don’t need any validation to be me because I'm highly aware of who I am and who I’m not. Sharing that freedom with as many people I can as often as I can is one of the things I’ve been called on to do.  

Now I’m in the proper alignment to extend myself to people without taking away from myself. And by that I mean forcing things, the moves I’m making feel very natural to me. Which excites not overwhelms and will allow me to be present in the moment and have fun! That’s what it’s all about : ) xx
