I'm not making this outfit all about the clothing. So let's face it, it is pretty clear that I am completely and utterly obsessed with these shoes. Each day, I wake up and try to piece together an outfit around them. But then, I force myself to focus on clothing that I haven't worn in quite some time. So let's talk about why it is so important to pull out clothing that you haven't worn in awhile. First, see if you're able to style an outfit that makes you excited to wear. If you truly have to work to get the item into your OOTD, then it's probably time to say goodbye and focus on some apparel that does excite you. Like you'll hear people say, "life is too short to be anything but happy" or something along those lines. And whether you want to believe it or not, your clothing plays a huge role in the way that you feel about yourself. Not only have I recognized this with myself, but also regarding my guy. We've both embraced the saying, "look good, feel good." And although times can be tough (financially) for young people, it is always important to treat yourself every now and then. Obviously within reason, depending upon your situation because everyone's situation is different.
Now since I previously bypassed my clothing in this outfit, I'll discuss it with you now. More recently I've become obsessed with joggers. These are obviously more casual and not a "workout" jogger like you'd expect. But if you're looking for a workout jogger, fear not, I have found THE perfect athletic jogger. I'll gush about them in a post later because they are just too wonderful not to share. So joggers...and we're back to the topic of comfort. Obviously these bad boys are comfy (or I probably wouldn't be wearing them) and the more important fact, they can be dressed up or down. I consider them "dressed up" here since I added my go-to sandal. For a more casual look, I style with my Tory Burch flip flops. It's that simple. So find today's trends that excite you. Everyone's body is different, just like everyone's comfort levels are different. Not everyone is like me and likes loose clothing. Find what fits and makes you happy. If there is trend that you're dying to try out but aren't too sure how to make it work, shoot me an e-mail. I'd love to help you get the look that you've been dying for!
