I’ve been really proud of myself lately. Why? Well, I’ve been stepping outside my comfort zone when it comes to fashion and beauty, and I’ve been doing things that I’ve always wanted to try, like wearing lipstick (gasp! But I never wear makeup) and wearing a man’s shirt. So this past weekend when I was going to the movies with my family, I decided to throw caution to the wind and wear what the heck I wanted.
I wanted to be stylish, but comfortable, and frankly, I just wanted to take a risk and wear a combination of things I never would’ve thought to wear together. And I wanted to wear this peplum dress one last time before it gets too cold.
I paired my dress with a long-sleeved denim shirt and some comfy sneakers and tied my week-old curls up in a colorful scarf. My hubby reminded me when I put this on that I was inadvertently wearing my high school uniform colors. And yes, in the Virgin Islands, public school students wear uniforms, including pleated skirts. I’m still laughing at the coincidence.
But you know what? I loved this outfit. I felt like a hipster (though I’m not sure if that’s a good thing), and I was completely comfortable and confident (always a good thing).
I think I’m starting to get the hang of this whole “dress for the day you want to have” thing. If you want to know what I’m talking about, check out all the other ladies who are dressing for the day they want to have (not for the day thatâ€™s trying to have them) with Dear AbbyLeigh, and link your own outfit post in the linky!
