Sometimes, you just gotta step outside your comfort zone.
I always wear a-line or full skirts. Always. That’s been the case since… early college. Or maybe high school. It’s partially a practical choice: with straight skirts, if they fit in the hips they’re far too big in the waist, and if they fit my waist – well, they’ll never go over my hips. And it’s a comfort choice. And frankly, fit-and-flare shapes are super-flattering on tons of body types, including mine.
But I’ve been reading other personal style blogs and getting inspired to try something new. Recently, this post on The Hourglass and this post on Girl with Curves inspired me to try something a little more body conscious.
And guess what?
I kinda love it.
And with a skirt like this one by BCBG, fantastic heels are required.
A little outside of my comfort zone?
But life’s more fun when you push boundaries!
