Breaking Rules Pt. 2 | Mixing It Up

The last time we talked fashion, I discussed some of the rules and one of the rules I use to hate breaking but now I want to touch on the rules in general.

When you look at these "rules" they don't really work for every outfit. Sometimes you have to try and see if it works for you because after all not everyone has the same style. We are all unique and what I like may not be what you like or vice versa. Or heck I may like mixing colors one day and the next swearing against it.

Fashion should be about how we feel in what we are in, not dressing to impress.
Side note: obviously certain situations may not apply like interviews, meeting patents, etc . Your not gonna wear your pjs and uncombed hair to meet the parents well maybe no pjs because who am I kidding I never comb my hair in the mornings.

My point is if you like it and it makes you feel great wear it!

For example, another big no no of mine was mixing color. The only way two different colors could be brought out was if one accessory had all the colors in it. But now I am enjoying random pops of color, it makes me feel amazing being able to mix colors in a fashionable way (at least to me).













But there are still days I feel great playing it safe as well.




























So whether your playing it safe or mixing it up, you can still look amazing. Just do what makes you feel good.

Breaking Rules Pt. 1 | Outfit Repeater

I'm not a fashion expert by any means, I've just worn what I liked but I always followed the "rules." You know the rules:

•No white after Labor Day
•Do not mix patterns or prints
•Match your shoes with your belt and bag
•Do not repeat an outfit
Blah blah blah

I was very guilty of sticking to them but let's talk about being an outfit repeater offender. 

To me an outfit was created by the shirt and pants. I didn't see the accessories as part of the outfit, they were just accessories.  I was so concerned about wearing the same shirt so close together that I would often buy shirts that didn't make a large statement so no one would remember them. However, if I did run across a shirt that I loved but knew it would be remembered I would wait months in between before wearing it again.





But you know what? Who cares if someone remembered you wore the same shirt last week or even two days ago (just remember to wash). I love this striped shirt and I want to get the most out of it. Thanks to Cassie, I have finally began to grasp that mixing and matching accessories and layers can create so many different looks. You don't need a closet full of clothes to create new looks each week, we just have to learn to use what we have.

I wore this outfit two weeks ago.

This outfit is from last week.

I am having so much fun with my closet now that I dumped these so-called "fashion rules" and create looks that I enjoy wearing because they make me feel good.

Are you a rule follower? Or are you are rule breaker?
