I, like I pray most people do, have a fail proof, it’s that time of the month proof, I shouldn’t have gotten desert proof, outfit. An A-Line Skirt with a body suit and normally a pair of heels. It’s easy to dress up or down, works for any season and does wonders for my silhouette. I can, and did, wear variations of this outfit for the past two years. Recently, I’ve been buying clothes that don’t necessarily fit in the 1950’s aesthetic I’ve acquired over the years. I’m just kind of outgrowing it, which I was trying to fight for the longest time but I’ve come to accept it. Everything evolves over time. I’m not the same person I was when I was sixteen, so why should my wardrobe?
You’re style will evolve over time. I’m never going to be a t-shirt and jeans girl. I’m just not but I’ve recently added pieces that I wouldn’t have even glanced at in the past years. Things I wouldn’t have necessarily been comfortable wearing because of one insecurity or another. I’m pushing myself out of my style comfort zone and I’m not regretting it. I recently bought a romper, from Forever21. Aside from the fear I had of my girls being all over hate place, I hate wearing shorts. Long story short, I had a bad experience once because of a pair of shorts when I was like sixteen and I haven’t worn them since.
Yet, this black romper with red flowers was literally screaming at me through the computer screen so I had to buy it. When it came in the mail, I literally did not open it because I was kind of nervous, like the romper was going to come out of the plastic baggy and eat me. I eventually did and Oh my, I’ve fallen completely in love it and it’s one of my favorite pieces in my closet. It’s so comfortable and it looks so cute. I honestly can’t believe I didn’t buy one sooner.
I’m not giving up my a-line skirts and I’m NOT giving up body suits. I hate shirt lines, so intensely, it’s not even funny BUT I will be stepping out of the norm of whats in my closet. The beautiful thing about personal style is that is always evolving. It’s can be kind of stressful, especially if you’re into aesthetics like I am, but it’s nice to have some variety in your day to day wardrobe. Buy or in the very least, try on the skirt with the weird print. You’ll have somewhere to wear it, I promise. You might surprise yourself and like it.
