A Fresh Start
In a bit of a rut with your clothes? I’ve definitely been there! This post is all about inspiring more creativity in our wardrobes & while we shop. Sometimes, all you need is a challenge, or to try something new to spark a bit of joy & inspiration within us. I have 6 fashion risks worth taking to share with you. Getting dressed should be an exciting part of your day. It’s a way to express how you’re feeling & make a great first impression. Let’s get risky!
1. Be Colorful
Around this time last year, I challenged myself to wear more colors. What’s so scary about color anyways? I dare you to wear a bright flippy dress like the one I’m wearing & not smile! No doubt the people around you will smile too. We need a bit more color in our lives.
2. Show A Little Skin
Why not? Show a little leg, a little chest, or wear a backless dress. Having a bit of skin on display makes you hold yourself differently, walk differently, & even act differently. Wear your skin with pride! There is no one else like you!
3. Mix Prints
Nothing excites an outfit more than a bit of print mixing! Whether you’re new to print mixing or you are a long time pro, check out this post to get the creative juices flowing.
4. Over Accessorize
Go big! Don’t be afraid to make a bit of a statement with your accessories. Wear a pair of big earrings, or fun hair clips, or a statement bag. Why not wear them all at once?! Have a little fun & don’t take yourself too seriously. (see my Accessorizing 101 post here)
5. Try Daytime Sparkles
Have a pair of sparkly shoes? Try wearing them during the day! Why not wear a bit of sparkle in your day to day life? Even if it’s a bit of sparkly eyeshadow like this one I’ve been wearing on the daily.
6. Be “Matchy-Matchy”
Instead of mixing prints, why not match them?! Try stripes on stripes, or florals on florals, or even houndstooth on houndstooth. But you can be matchy-matchy even without prints! Go for a monochromatic look like this one or this one.
