Try something new. You never know, you may like it.
In the spirt of experimentation, I modified a J.Crew outfit from the new Fall 2011 collection. For this outfit, a very patterned leopard skirt is paired with a white and blue striped tee-shirt.
I would have never thought to wear that striped top with the leopard skirt, but when I see it all together, I like it! For my outfit, I wore my J.Crew Neapolitan pencil skirt with a blue striped shirt with embellished shoulders. I also wore black pumps to match the model in the photo above.
When I first looked in the mirror this morning after getting dressed, I second guessed the outfit because it was out of my comfort zone (which says a lot!). However, in an attempt to be courageous in my fashion choices, I went with it. (And I'm glad I did!) I absolutely love this look. I think it's fun, it's different, it's unexpected. It doesn't necessarily match, but that's why it's interesting visually.
I definitely intend to try more out-of-the-box outfits. I had a lot of fun with this one!
