Something that I can definitely say about myself is that I’m not afraid to try something new with my wardrobe. Forcing myself to think outside of the box, I strive to put together different and unique combinations and outfits that allow me to show off the different sides of me. Many of times people say phrases to me like “only you would wear that”, which at first I wasn’t sure if “that” was a good or bad thing. But over time, instead of taking statements like those as negative ones, I started taking them in as the hugest of compliments, believing my style to be unique and different compared to those around me, which I always strive to do. While things like floral pastel leggings and silver metallic Air Jordan 1s combined together can very easily go from hit to miss, I’m not scared to test out the waters and see what happens. I sometimes get stuck in my ways, trying to figure out a solution to pairing my obscure purchases like these pastel florals with the rest of the items in my closet because you can’t just wear them with anything. Therefore, being creative and fitting all your pieces together takes some time and takes some art. On a day like this where it was a little chilly outside and I knew I wanted to wear something warm, I had the idea to pull the leggings together with a maroon colored TOMs sweater along with my favorite Jordans and ear cuffs to add that extra umph and swag which ended up creating an outfit that I was was completely in love with– reaffirming my belief that sometimes, it’s okay to take chances.
