So I talk a lot about stepping out of my comfort zone. Let me just say that this zone is very small for me. I generally didn't ever go shopping unless I absolutely had to and when I did I would always stick to the basic neutrals. If the item couldn't be worn many ways with things I already owned, I wouldn't buy it. So I had zero statement pieces and I never took part in trends because they had no longevity.
This makes my fashion evolution difficult. Everything is new to me and sometimes that can be intimidating. I believe you look as good as you feel. If you have confidence and hold your head high, knowing you look fabulous, others will see something fabulous too. And if you don't have that confidence....well, that falls into place too.
This is the first outfit I've worn that didn't match explicitly. Ordinarily for me to wear blue pants, I'd have to have blue up top as well. My point is, I struggled with confidence a little today but I held my head high and faked it anyway. I didn't back down and change into something 'safe', I stuck it out. And I may not feel super comfortable in this outfit but I've already gone far just for trying it out.

So these are those pants and the nail polish I talked about on Friday. I absolutely love the color of this nail polish, the picture just doesn't do it justice. It is a bright neon, it almost glows. However, 24 hours later it's chipped on every nail! I guess it's one of those 'you get what you pay for' things. I'll try with a clear top coat and let ya know how that works out.
