You know how I mentioned on Monday that I find it tough to feel like a truly “fearless” fashionista when I’m wearing flats?? It should come as no surprise then that today I was feeling about as fearless as it gets in my silver platform boots, leopard coat, and striped jeans combo!! In fact, this particular ensemble might be one of my all-time favourite looks since I started blogging over four years ago; I think I hit on that perfect balance of rock chic and bohemian that I’m always after…and all this without the outfit-enhancing attributes of a hat!!
While I absolutely stand by my opinion that a hat is a virtually foolproof way to up the ante of almost any look, that doesn’t mean that I want to wear one every. single. day. I wouldn’t want to wear anything every single day; even my crazy-cool striped skinnies would get boring if I pulled them on week after week. (If I’m being totally honest though, I kinda could reach for my leopard coat – which I debuted just this past fall – as a non-negotiable topper 24/7…but I’m purposely pacing myself to keep that bloom of newness going as long as possible!!)
And oh my goodness – those silver, reptile-textured disco boots can’t help but be the (rock) star of the show, can they?! They’re very definitely not flat-heeled; and even more definitely not “boring!!” Statement-makers in the truest sense…but that major platform makes them surprisingly easy to wear. Being fearless in your personal style choices should have you pushing yourself out of your wardrobe comfort zone on a regular basis – I don’t think I would have dared a look quite this bold even a year ago! – but feeling physically uncomfortable doesn’t need to be part of the equation…at least not all the time!! 😉
