I find I have to constantly push myself outside of my fashion box. I seem to instantly gravitate to dressier more stuffy clothing items and I find being more casual is a real push for me. Several weeks ago Tutu convinced me to buy Mommy and me purple converse sneakers. They look adorable on her but to be honest I struggle to feel comfortable wearing them myself. It’s such a contrast to my usual footwear choices, since I’m almost always in a high heel.
I also have to find ways of wearing most of my wardrobe outside of work or a special event. The best way I found to do this is to pair contrasting items together like dresses with a sportier shoe or sneaker, a lace or sparkly item with leather or denim. This gives you options and versatility for wearing a lot more pieces in your closet. It also adds an unexpected twist and interesting details to your everyday look.
Floral print for Fall is not a usual choice especially in a light purple color, but our weather has been very warm this fall and slightly unpredictable. The lighter weight of this fabric and flowy styling is the perfect choice for a warm Fall day.
