Be bold. Be brave. Go for it. In life, in fashion, in general.
Each morning we are given a new day; an opportunity to start fresh. Convenience and routine can get the best of us if we let them. Same shoes, same shirt, same hair style. Or... we can see each day as an opportunity. A chance to try something new. To stretch ourselves and grow. I have a friend who used to drink her Dr. Pepper out of a wine glass. It's silly and simple, but it showed me that an ordinary thing can quickly become enhanced; special and even whimsical if we put some thought into it.
How can you add a little whimsy to your life? Your wardrobe? Last year I made a goal to try something new each month. I surfed, went stand up paddle boarding, zip lining, and held a baby lion (Mexico only). By making a small decision to be more intentional and try new things, my life was greatly enriched.
Have some fun this week with your wardrobe. Spend 5 minutes to put together a new outfit. Roll up your sleeves, cuff your pants, try a bold lip color, wear heels, or curl your hair. In an effort to keep pushing past my comfort zones I decided to go for it with this purple snakeskin dress by Tibi. Not for the faint of heart, the bold color and snakeskin print make this demure little party dress a real statement. Grounding the look with my favorite booties and gorgeous drop earrings from Petals and Stones I felt like me, only a little shinier ;) How are you going to shine this week?
