Being feminine can be so incredibly glamorous but not all that crave this style know where to even start with achieving it. That’s why I have put together this special post and list, to teach those in need, exactly how to be a girly girl and more feminine while also saying screw you, as politely as possible of course, to others that have an issue with it.
I have to say if you don’t naturally find yourself drawn to feminine things and girly things don’t force yourself to like them for any reason.
Especially, don’t try and change your self just to try and please someone else. You’ll never be happy and that’s definitely not what I would want for you.
Think of this post more as a guide if you do adore the feminine style but you’re afraid for someone reason to actually embrace it. There’s no need to be afraid and yes stepping out of your comfort zone is frightening but that’s only temporary.
There’s nothing wrong with being feminine
I seriously hate when people put down others for being girly or feminine. Like seriously why are you trying to crush others for what they love?
To some people being feminine & girly may be “childish” or they view it as we’re suppressing ourselves and our abilities.
To me ,that’s a load of BULL.
If you have to go around putting other people down for what they like, you clearly aren’t happy with the way you’re living you’re life so please keep your bitterness to yourself. I see feminine women as people that embrace what they love without fear of what others think.
These women can accomplish ANYTHING & they 100% do.
You can LOVE pink and be smart as hell.. Yes ,that’s actually true! You can love feminine things while respecting yourself and not letting anyone of the opposite sex tell you what you can or can’t do. You can love glitter and tulle skirts and find a way to make your passion for such things change your life.
For example, starting your own business based off this passion and sharing that passion with every other women out there that loves what you love just as much!
Like I mentioned before, I’m not for you becoming someone you’re not. But I am for you not hiding who you are or embracing it because your afraid of what people will think or say.
Really that doesn’t matter.
Actually, you know what? I do care what people think and what they have to say but only certain people..
The people that build others up. Those people I LOVE and I aspire to return the support they give me and others as well. Those people matter so don’t forget about them because they are unicorns! I couldn’t be more thankful for the souls put on this earth that look to raise others up.
The purpose of this post is to guide you, not be a rant. However, with my experience ,it’s frustrating to not want to tell people to buzz of when it comes to hating on women and girls that love such style. I share this with you for you to be reassured that you can love what you love and make anything possible.
Now for the best part!
Here’s are my tips on being more feminine & a girly girl
Act the part
This is at the top of the list because it truly is the most important place to start. When you are a girly girl it shows through your personality. For example, some girly-girls are very bubbly, happy and enjoyable to be around.
And of course not all girly girls are exactly the same but I’m going to give you advice based off of how I act and how it ties in with being a girly girl and feminine.
As a girly girl my self, I love pink passionately which seems to be synonymous with girly girls and glitter is also at the top of the list for my favorite things! I adore all things feminine and pretty which just comes naturally to you when you’re girly. I also carry my self like a lady, meaning that I keep my speech as pretty and polite as possible and try to spread as much kindness as possible. Oh ,and Audrey Hepburn is with out a doubt my IDOL!
Get The Essentials
To be girly you need to assemble your self with all that you’ll need to show off your pretty and feminine self! This means getting the essentials such as some flattering dresses, skirts, blouses, purses and shoes! And absolutely what ever else will make your heart jump for joy!
Dress The Part
This part stems off of the previous. Do you ever buy clothes that you desperately want to wear, but tend to have a difficult time with actually following through wearing them?
Sometimes the reason for this is that you may buy something that you’re so incredibly excited about but you end up being too nervous to actually wear it. It may be too out of your comfort zone when it comes to the clothing that you normally wear everyday.
For ladies like this, if you love the piece you’re considering and it flatters your body type go for it! Having a feminine style is about having a wardrobe that consist of dresses, skirts and pieces that truly flatter your figure.
That does not mean you have to have “the perfect” body-type, what ever that is.. It means you select clothes for yourself ( or have someone help you) that will make you look your best. This is totally possible, so don’t think it’s not.
It’s another reason why I love dresses so much, because I’ve seen so many different kind of dresses that flatter women with different body-types.
Dresses, to me, say hey you are beautiful just the way you are & now let’s make you shine!
Make The Effort
Taking the previous advice even further, you have to continue following through by making the effort into your appearance. You’ll want to do this with your attitude each and every day as well.
Girly girls & feminine women are known for taking great care of themselves.
They take the extra time to take care their hair, make-up, complexion and health. Having these kinds of habits is a way to promote you feeling your absolute best!!
You also don’t have to wear make-up to be a girly-girl. That depends on your personal preference. I choose to do so because I have little children that tend to exhaust me a bit lol. Makeup is like my sidekick to looking more awake and less like a zombie!
As a women that’s more feminine you have these habits a part of your daily routine. You then put on a lovely outfit that makes you feel and go take on the world!
Carry It Into Your Surroundings
Now, this means to carry it into your home, workspace, bedroom or wherever that you spend a lot of time.
I am always sharing on my Instagram the feminine ways that I style these places. If you ever need a little bit of extra inspiration you must follow me there!
Here are some of my favorite girly ways to decorate : with my favorite fashion prints, fashion books, florals, teacups and teapots. I even love to use my purses and sparkly shoes as decoration as well!
The possibilities are truly endless! But if you want to step up your girly game this list is without a doubt, a great place start. I wish you all of the luck & if you ever have questions, please don’t hesitate to comment or contact me!
You are my favorite blogger and I really liked this post. What is your Instagram?
Oh my goodness gracious, I have just come across your blog, and I’m obsessed! It’s nice to know people who are as girly as me! I often get looks from strangers or co-workers because they assume since I’m dressed up in pink and glitter that I’m spoiled, dumb, or pretentious – which I’m not! That’s another reason I love your blog… You believe in kindness and being yourself. I have just subscribed – looking forward to more from you!
Aw Caity! I am so glad you found my blog and we’ve had the chance to connect! It frustrates me so much the way some people think but hey we know the truth and there’s nothing wrong with loving the style that we do!
I just stumbled across your blog, but it is absolutely wonderful. I am not a girly-girl by any stretch of the imagination (I’m a minimalist who loves navy as you love pink!), but I love how you are unapologetically, authentically you. Your site radiates positivity and happiness. It truly brightened my day. You have a new subscriber!
Thank you so so so much Meg! That truly means so much to me and I am so glad you’re here now!
HI Lexi, Great article! I wear dresses and shirts everyday and my idol is Dolly Parton. i am a happy homemaker whose husband likes pink. I look forward to reading more????????????????????????????????
Hello Amy! It’s so nice to e-meet you my dear! I love that your husband loves pink! Perfection! hehehe!
Hey, my best friend is a girly girl but one day she was crying and her brother told her that that wasn’t manly so now she acts like she hates it. What should I do to help because you helped me! Love ya xoxox
Sorry for my delay in getting back to you lovely! I am so happy I helped you and I definitely don’t want your friend to feel the way that she does.
Boys are silly and can be mean. They think there’s something wrong with crying and showing their true emotions because society tells them there’s something wrong with that and really there’s not!
The same thing is true for your friend. Crying is totally natural and in fact it’s healthy! When you hold things in, those emotions will find negative ways of coming out of you instead.
You tell her that she will still be just as incredibly strong and beautiful if she cries and to not worry about what anyone else thinks. Other’s people’s opinions are just projections of things those people don’t like about themselves. They also are projections of what others have told them and then they pass it on to other people. Vicious cycle..
Don’t buy into it and don’t let her do it either!
You’re both beautiful and wonderful and I hope I could help in some way my dear!
Hi Lexie, I have been enjoying reading your lovely posts- I am wondering if you would do a post about dressing femininely in cold weather?
It’s easier in warm weather but when it gets cold outside I tend to revert back to jeans and sweaters. Your help would be appreciated! Thanks so much! You are an inspiration.
Hey Kendra. Thank you so so much! I absolutely will start working on that post for you! :*
Hi Lexie, I love your blog and girly style! I myself am very feminine and dress and decorate in that manner. When I get married though, I don’t think my husband will be too keen on a pink,sparkly home. Any advice? Thanks!:)
Hey love! I think it’s best to see what your husband would be comfortable with. When my husband and I first were married I decorated our home in very neutral colors and a neutral style but as time went on I started purchasing more feminine decor after realizing my husband didn’t care at all how I decorated our home. If your husband happens to be a guy that’s totally not ok with it, I would suggest styling in neutral colors and an overall neutral theme while adding decor pieces that can easily be switched out ( such as pillows, candles, frames) that have more of a feminine touch that you would like but are also not too much for your husband. :)
Beautiful post Lexie. I’ve always been a fan of the girly girl and lately I’ve tried being more of one and I use you as an example. Love your style and just basically everything about you. You’re one of my idols. ???
aww Abby you always make my day! You are such a wonderful person thank you always for your love and support!
