High Heels and Training Wheels: Oh What the Hell, Right?

Oh What the Hell, Right?

Alright you guys, I'm always talking about my "comfort zone" and how I don't have the confidence to pull of certain looks or to try new things. Well, you know what I decided? What the hell?! I mean, really! What's the worst that could happen if an outfit turns out to be a total flop? I wear it for one day, 12 hours at the most, I learn from the mistake and try something different. I mean, it's not like I have to be buried in the thing! And on the plus side, if I try something a little risky and it rocks, I can do it again. Basically, I've just been being a baby about this and I realized I can never get out of this rut if I don't take chances. So I said Eff it and wore what I wanted! Who cares what anyone else thinks, I'm wearing it for me! And I'm so glad I did because it wasn't a flop at all! I've had this skirt folded in the closet longer than I care to admit, it needed to finally be worn!

So do you guys think? Was it a win? I love it. I don't know if it's the outfit in particular that I love or just what it represents; me letting go of insecurities and wearing what I like. This outfit was a turning point. It opened doors into a more adventurous personal style. I just hope I can live up to it and maintain this attitude of "Who the hell cares? I wear what I want!". I may be a mom but I'm only 28! I'm not dead yet! Until next time, guys...

  3. You look super cute. I always feel so self conscious when my skirts are on the shorter side. Any recommendations? I'm always afraid to bend down or get out of the car!

    1. No, I hear ya! I finally just got tired of being so self conscious all the time! I reached a point that I just don't care anymore. Not really sure what the turning point was. I say, just go for it! You won't regret it! :)
