We’ve Been Conditioned to Not Make Mistakes, But I Can’t Live That Way

My look from Monday.

I loved the effortless combo of these crazy sneakers with this easy, comfy dress. And I love it with my big bow ring.

This dress doesn’t come with a belt, but I don’t think I’d ever wear it without one (gotta have the fit and flare!).  For an unstructured dress, it has some great details, like small, cute buttons, a flattering collar, and perfectly placed seams.  And it’s so comfy!

Let’s talk about the shoes.  I really wanted some wedge sneakers that were unique and not too sporty (the classic Isabel Marant-esque ones aren’t really my style).  These off-the hook edgy-glam ones fit the bill.  And of course they’re Betsey Johnson, my fave.

Was wearing a great Forever 21 bag with this that totally matched the shoes, but the chain strap broke early in the day (gotta get that fixed!), so I switched it out for a Marc by Marc Jacobs black nylon bag with gold hardware which also worked, but that I decided not to include in the pic.

I feel like I’m taking new creative risks with my style, and this look is something I wouldn’t have even thought of in the past.  I love that I can keep learning and shaping the way I dress.  Keeping it fresh and creative.   Fashion is such a fun thing to look forward to every day, and I’m having as much fun with it as ever.

What I wore:

  • Topshop dress
  • Francesca’s Collections belt
  • Betsey Johnson sneakers
  • Kate Spade New York ring
  • Hue (?) or Ann Taylor (?) tights
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and necklace

No memory of what earrings I was wearing.
