Mint and leopard. In my room I thought this outfit was a great idea, but as I walked out the door into real life I had a “What on earth am I wearing?” kind of moment. Mint in the fall? Mint and leopard? Why do I kind of feel like a superhero wearing colored skinnies and boots? But then I just decided to think it was awesome (or at least pretend to). Mint and leopard? Yes. Why the heck not?
I think confidence is one of the best accessories you can wear. I’ve had plenty of days lately where I’ve walked out of the house chuckling at myself, wondering what the heck I’m wearing. But I just find a reason to love it–whether it’s being able to appreciate one particular piece, or simply being proud of myself for trying something new even if it’s not my favorite outfit, or because it’s such a train wreck that it’s so dang funny–anything. It so happens that while it’s not always the case, I genuinely came to love this outfit! Not gonna lie, though…even though I decided that I loved this before leaving the house, it helped when I ran into two girls I knew who saw me and instantly showered me with compliments about my outfit. Even with all I’ve just said, you’d better believe inside I was like, “Whew!” 🙂
What do you do when you walk out of the house unsure about your outfit?
