There are some things we are comfortable trying and some we aren't. Some things we try and love, some we try and don't like so much (but at least we tried).
This weeks linkup is about 3 looks I love that you should try. I'm going to share 3 looks I've tried over the past year that have found a permanent home in my style repertoire.
Top 3 Looks (that I've tried AND stuck with)
White freaks me out. White pants, white shirts... white clothing in general. I previously wrote a blog post devoted to my fear of white pants. Here's the problem: I LOVE the look of white on everyone else but I'm constantly afraid of spillage/sitting in something gross etc. Having said all that, I've tried to be more welcoming to white in the past year (but you had better believe I'm always carrying a tide-to-go) and continue to add white pieces to my wardrobe (though, in the interest of full disclosure: I couldn't bring myself to buy white maternity jeans - I can only go so far people!).
Having never been a huge fan of animal print, this was a stretch for me initially. I bought my first pair of leopard print flats, with hesitation, during last years Spring Style Challenge. I haven't looked back. I have since added a leopard print scarf and a second pair or leopard print flats (the first pair got so much use, I figured I could use a back-up). Needless to say, I have learned to love leopard print and it's found a home in my closet.
By far my biggest fashion leap. Historically, I like to stick with denim or black pants and I haven't really deviated much from that, until last year. I started with a pair of red pants, then added some prints and more color. I've learned that color and prints work on the bottom (and can be lots of fun), you just need to shop around for fit, material and color that work with your body type (read: doesn't show lumps and bumps). I am happy to report I have even carried this look into my maternity wardrobe!
