Today I'm popping in to show you a new outfit I got recently. I tend to get really comfortable in a certain style of clothing, as do most people, I'm guessing! I am usually a leggings & tunic type of girl. Sometimes I will throw on a pair of jeans, and a sweater. But mostly, I just wear what's comfortable.
Lately, though, I've been trying to step outside my comfort zone a little and buy pieces that are still comfortable, but different & unique to the other things I have in my closet.
The first time I ever even thought twice about this style of pant, was when I was at Type-A Conference this past September. I saw several ladies wearing them, and as I was sitting there in my jeans and the button was digging into my belly -- I kept thinking how fashionable these pants looked, but also, how comfortable they would be to wear! Especially for long periods of time. But really, I'm kind of curvier girl, and I wasn't sure that I could pull them off.
But back in October, I got gutsy and tried on a few pairs. I posted a picture on Instagram of myself in a dressing room, trying on this pair of pants. I got an overwhelming response from my friends to BUY THEM! And so, I did. Thanks guys!
Also, don't make fun of me for wearing sunglasses. Although, it's not sunny, it was bright outside from the white overcast clouds, so I was super squinty if I didn't have these on. ;-)
Black Top: Target
Scarf: gifted to me
Pants: Fred Meyer
Shoes: Rack Room Shoes
If I'm being totally honest, I've only worn them once since I got them. I'm still not really that confident with how they look on me. I still question whether or not I should be wearing a patterned-style pant. But there's no denying that they are definitely easy to wear, I don't feel confined or restricted when I'm wearing them.
Another huge battle I have, is shoes. I feel a bit like a fish out of water when I'm trying to pair shoes with outfits. The advise I got from people about shoes on this outfit, was to get a pair of black flats, so, I did. And I think they go really well with the outfit! They are super versatile and very comfortable to walk in! And the best part, is that they don't hurt my heels like a lot of other flats I have.

I feel like flats are my go-to shoes these days, because running around after kids... who has time for heels?!
Do you tend to get stuck in your comfort zone when it comes to fashion? How often do you try different styles?
