Well of course I didn't jump out of any trees in this outfit, but you get the point. I actually wore this to a cigar bar in DC, and decided to wear it again for the blog. When I wore it to the bar, a young lady who wore a dainty dress commented on my outfit by saying, "that's more of my style." I was flattered because I actually threw this outfit on to kick it with my homie. I wasn't thinking too hard about my ensemble. I was simply putting on what was comfortable to me, and what spoke to my style. When the young lady commented on my look I thought to myself, "style is all about what you are comfortable with and what's you."
I'm learning on my journey not to think too much about everything including my style. If you overthink everything stress creeps into your space, and things began to get really hectic. Stay true to yourself, do the best you can do, and the rest will fall into place.
In the pictures above, I am wearing some high-waist jeans from H&M that have a lot of stretch in them. My shoes are from Aldo (old but similar pair here). My t-shirt is from Urban Outfitters, and my purse is from Forever 21 (old but similar one here). My choker necklace came for Intuition. I am definitely into these necklaces nowadays. I rock them almost everyday.
Enjoy your week everyone! Let's remember to keep it real with ourselves, and not overthink everything.
