Can you believe we are already in April? Just a couple of months ago I can still remember watching the ball drop and thinking to myself: 2014 will be the year of change. Yes that includes life, work, etc. But also my wardrobe. I’ve always been pretty forward with my pieces, even to the point where I illicit looks from strangers. (should I worry?) so I decided to host a challenge with myself that I know will include changing up my wardrobe.
It’s tackling all the trends but putting my own spin on it. So far I can say the trends I’m going for have been treating me well. I make sure I feel super comfortable in them, while making sure I can wear them again without looking ridiculous. The truth is, fashion is crazy! That’s right, I said it, and yes there are a lot of things I wont try. So my open-mindedness has led me to try one of the most coveted items right now, the Romper (I know can you believe it?) Also known as a play suit, or jumper. I remember when they started hitting shelves last year and thinking Who would wear this? I immediately thought: how the hell do you use the bathroom? I quickly ruled it out and never cared for the look until I started seeing it everywhere again this year. It was like it came back with a vengeance. This item is literally so hot right now, retailers from Nordstrom to Forever XXI are struggling to keep them on the shelves.
So yes, I gave in and I bought myself one in the hottest color (coral). As I was slipping it on in the dressing room, crazy thoughts filled my head. I had to push through them because at one point in my life this item was an item that I promised myself I would never wear, so for me to be giving it a chance was a big deal… It was done and purchased, no going back now.
I wanted to keep the theme of this look fresh and colorful, it’s such a great spring time look!
Though you might think that I over reacted to just a piece of clothing, it was more than that… it was me stepping out of my comfort zone fully with a piece that I thought so negatively about. Sometimes in life stepping out of the box may surprise you!
I’m overall satisfied with the way that this look came out and have no regrets!
Does the future hold more rompers for me? Who knows, only time will tell.
Until then, I’ll just play around in this play suit.
