We’ve all been there...... you are rushing to get out the door in the morning and you have no idea what you are going to wear! It happens to the best of us and in these types of moments, I try not to over-think my outfit. And not overthinking my outfits means I make my outfit decision within seconds.
I had one of these moments the other day, it was cold and foggy and I needed to get to the bus asap. And in all my chaos of trying to get out the door,I was forced outside of my usual go-to list of looks. I learned quickly that its okay to go outside of your fashion comfort zone. See, I rarely layer my button-downs and sweaters, or stray from my usual color pairing pallet. But on this day I pulled together a color combo I don’t think I’ve ever previously worn (sage and orange not my go-to!). To my surprise, I came into the office and received a boatload of compliments. And what girl doesn't love a good compliment?! I guess trying something new wasn't so bad after all.
Life is all about taking risks and sometimes those are fashion risks. Moral of the story: sometimes when you put together an outfit, the first thing that comes to mind works out better than when you over-think what you are going to wear. So get out there and take a risk with your fashion choices this week. You might find yourself pleasantly surprised with the outcome!
