I never like to categorize myself as a ‘heels’ girl, a ‘flats’ girl or a ‘sneaks’ girl cause I’m all three. I used to think that wearing heels was the only way to look good or that dressing down was a fashion faux pas. Crazy, right? As I get older and way more comfortable with myself, I’m really focused on locking in my personal style; not necessarily to fit into any specific style category but mostly to make sure my priority remains to wear what I’m comfortable in, what compliments my body type and boosts my confidence. I’m definitely not a fashion expert but I’m a firm believer in feeling confident in whatever you wear.
Always dress to impress…yourself. That’s my motto.
I wear what I want when I feel like it and although a pair of heels can really bring your outfit up a notch…stylin in a comfortable pair of flats is just as dope.
My go-to relaxed going out outfit usually consists of a pair of ripped jeans, a loose tee or a lightweight blouse and a comfortable pair of flats.
Often times, if I’m going out after work I just want to be comfortable. Some days that means a heel and some days it means kickin’ it in whatever makes me feel less restricted.
This is a great outfit for a relaxed coffee & dessert date or a chill weekend lunch date with friends.
When I’m dressing down, I up the anty with accessories; a nice watch and bracelet are my favs.
Early (sunny) evenings call for a stylish pair of sunglasses and depending on where I’m going…statement earrings finish off the look.
I’ve tried to follow trends and wearing what I think other people would think looks good and it’s never worked for me. I never feel comfortable and it shows. 100%.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to dress up and my style is constantly evolving but…no matter what, I only wear what I feel beautiful in.
What’s your take on trends and literally, dressing to impress? Let me know!
Stay tuned for my next post!
