I have a confession. I’m pretty comfortable with most styles, but it took me a long time to get up the courage to wear a hat.
In fact, Troy bought me a fedora probably 3 years ago, and I finally wore it in public last year. I was self conscious and felt like people would judge me for wearing a hat. Those words look ridiculous written out, but I know from talking with some of you, you’ve felt the same way. We know we shouldn’t care so much, and we don’t want to, but sometimes that’s harder said than done.
Once I started wearing the hat, I loved it, and I wish I’d just done it instead of giving in to worrying so much. There are a lot more important things to spend time and energy on. Sometimes you just need a nudge to step out of that comfort zone, so here I am, nudging you. :)
Deciding to wear that certain item may feel scary, but try it this week. Maybe start with a trip to the store where you won’t know anyone. Or to an event with a close friend that you know will encourage you. Taking risks with something as small as an item of clothing can give you courage to try other things you’ve been dreaming about but holding back from. Think of your closet as a pair of training wheels for pushing yourself out of your comfort zone.
Here’s my latest hat look and proof that I’ve been obsessed lately:
I love wearing simple things with my hat, like a button down, tank, or tee.
This t-shirt dress is another of my favorite things to pair it with. Simple, but pulled together.
I think I’ve worn some version or another of this look about 83 times already this summer! :)
Your turn! Pick something from your closet today you’ve wanted to wear for a while, but couldn’t quite muster up the courage. Share it with us in today’s link up (even if it’s not a hat), and let us encourage you!
Last week, y’all killed it with your remixes of patterned bottoms (let’s have one last laugh about that wording combo, shall we? :)) I had a really hard time choosing a few looks to feature, so be sure to go back and look at all the amazing inspiration!
Jennie’s look is so lady-like and swoon-worthy!
Jen showed us how she remixes her plaid skirt for every season, and gives tips
for making pieces work year-round.
Maricel rocked her palazzo pants. This might become my summer uniform.
