Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone


Last winter I did something I don’t normally do. Instead of just walking past the J Crew storefront in the mall like I usually do (it’s just a little too rich for my current budget)… I walked right in. Now, I walked straight to the sale rack, but still. I was taking a chance – specifically a chance that I was going to fall in love with something WAY out of my price range. But low and behold, they were having an AMAZING 50% off sale items sale.

And that’s where I found this skirt. Who can say no to that twirl? It’s easily the single most complimented item in my wardrobe, and I love it dearly.

Normally I stay pretty conservative with it, pairing it with  sweaters and simple tops, but I was recently convinced to try it with a tied chambray shirt, and while I wasn’t immediately convinced (tying shirts in general never seems to go well for me)… I love it.


Oh, and here’s my trick for wearing an outfit you’re on the fence about: rock it when you’re only working a half day. That way if you really truly hate it, bam! You’re already home and changed into jeans. Done and done.


What chances have you been taking recently?
