Happy 2019 everyone! For many people a new year brings new resolutions and goals. We thought it would be fun for us to each try out something new that we wouldn't typically wear. After all, you won't know if you'll like it if you don't give it a shot!
Stepping out of your comfort zone in any aspect of your life can always be a little scary, from the biggest to smallest things, but it's usually always worth it in the end! This week is a fun theme which required me to step away from what I'm used to. I don't tend to stray away from my neutral color pallet and pretty much all cream wardrobe, whoops.
For my outfit I chose this fun striped jumpsuit that had many colors I wouldn't normally wear, but I still managed to sneak a little cream in there. I added a super fun hunter green long sleeve underneath it to add a pop of color that I would normally never do! And just like I said earlier, it was so worth taking that risk! It turned out to be so cute and exciting.
To accessorize it I paired it with an adorable layered necklace and big earrings. I added a white boot to add some height, because your girl needs all the help she can get. I hope this posts help inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and enjoy the risk!
Okay...how is it 2019? I literally blinked, Christmas came and went, and now I'm two weeks into the New Year trying to find the strength to leave my glutenous habits of 2018 behind me. Whoa! To kick off the New Year, we are choosing outfits that we would normally never wear. I love this idea! Nothing better than starting fresh with something new and challenging.
Let's be real, if I could get away with wearing all black every day of the year, I would. Color has always been a bit scary to me and I'm not really sure why... I guess I like to blend in rather than stand out. I really wanted to step outside of my box and try something different, so I chose this gorgeous striped jumpsuit!
If you've been following our blog for a while, you'll know that I'm super into the retro bohemian styles. This piece screams late 60's vibes to me and I. am. here. for. it! This apple-cinnamon color is NEVER something I'd lean towards, but when I actually got the jumpsuit on I was in love! The vertical stripes are unbelievably flattering and I actually really enjoy the different colors running throughout.
I paired the jumpsuit with some tan wedges, which was perfect in my opinion. It made my legs look a mile long! I love the crisscross cut of the neckline, and that the waist is more of an empire cut. Together, they make the already flattering stripes even more flattering (especially for those of us who have had babies...mom bod helloooo!). I never thought I could rock a jumpsuit, let alone a LOUD colorful one, but this was such a pleasant surprise. If you've been hesitant about this trend, I really urge you to try it. You'll be surprised just like I was!
To keep along with the 60's trend, I paired this outfit with a long fringed necklace. The details on this piece are beautiful. I am really into statement necklaces as of lately and I've had my eye on this one for a hot second. The hues are nice and warm, which ties in perfectly with the tones of the jumpsuit.
These wooden earrings are fairly out of my box too, but I felt like they were neutral enough to go with the outfit. They give off a fun, retro vibe too! They're super unique and not something I've seen anywhere else.
I hope the New Year is treating you well! Step outside of your box and try some new things, you'll be surprised by how fun and exciting it can be!
New years are all about taking chances and becoming a better you! Going into 2019 it's time to step out of the comfort zone... even if that means wearing something you normally wouldn't! I always see super cute outfits but think "I can never pull that off" but why not!
This week I decided to wear an olive green overall jumpsuit with a brown mock neck long sleeve. This is definitely one of those cute outfits I see styled all the time on Instagram but never dared to try and to my surprise I loved it!
I actually never wear earrings so I went with a pair of big snakeskin dangle earrings that really stood out. I topped of with a small and simple gold necklace that perfectly laid underneath the neckline of the long sleeve shirt. Both of these accessorizes go nicely with the warm colors of my whole outfit!
I loved the way I felt in this outfit and am adding it to my wardrobe list of favorite outfits to rotate during special occasions! Lol. It's perfect for these cold Sacramento days when you throw a large coat on!
Getting out of your fashion comfort zone can be difficult, especially as you age, change weight, etc. But sometimes grabbing an item that looks crazy on the hanger ends up being a chic blessing in disguise.
Personally, I tend to go for more structured and tailored bottoms. I have never worn a wide leg trouser out in public ever. It looks absolutely cute and effortless on others but I always felt too short to try it. I decided to try this trouser and pair it with a form-fitting top to balance out the volume of the lower half. Since I'm not used to such a statement pair of pants, I kept the accessories simple.
Next time you're out shopping, consider grabbing that crazy piece on the hanger. Even if it never leaves the dressing room, you might learn something new about yourself.
Happy New Year everyone! A huge trend right now is animal print. My style is a lot more relaxed and casual, so animal print is something I typically shy away from. However, I'm really feeling it this time around!
Even though the top is wild for my tastes I decided to take this theme to the next level (for myself) and pair it with a fitted hunter green suede skirt! WHO AM I? Actually, I ended up falling in love with the skirt! It has two layers to create the tied look and I loved that the double layer helped hide any lines from the bodysuit. The knot in the front was flattering and the gathering also helped conceal my tummy area.
I went with gold accessories for this outfit to add even more pizzazz! I really like the mixed materials of the earrings. To me the earrings look like the "dark side" of the moon combined with the sun. My Y necklace is a simple, dainty piece that I tucked into the top. Since I don't really wear heels, I only had black flats, but this outfit would be great with heels!
We hope this post inspires you to try something new this year.
Thank you for stopping by!
