I know what you're thinking, are you CRAZY?! ha! A little, but sometimes we get so used to similar outfits that we can forget that it can be fun to try different styles and colours in our wardrobe. We're all about our "signature look" or "investment pieces" that we tend to forget that it's OK to be different or to try a different style of clothing or a trend we wouldn't usually go for.
We should embrace different styles and trends we don't usually go for, why should we keep being safe with our fashion? Let your alter ego style take over for once and you'll be amazed at the result and surprised with what you might've thought wouldn't look the best to something that looks fantastic on you!
My inner arty little foxy self-burst with excitement when I saw these mismatched earrings from Isabel Marant. I love her designs and these earrings were something I'd never dare to wear, but I felt my art teacher alter ego say "Do it, wear them! THEY'LL LOOK AWESOME". Alter ego was right, they do look hella cool! I love them, they're dainty but express a part of me that I rarely show now. I'm glad I took the plunge and picked them because now I wear them regularly.
Another key piece of something I never buy is white booties because we've been told: "white gets dirty". Yes, they can, but not if you spray protectant! These studded white pointed booties from Sam Edelman were such a statement too! I love styling them with my jeans, it just gives my casual outfit such a pop!
So, what are you waiting for? #StyleHigh with Shopbop and try something a little bit different that your alter ego currently craves!
I want you to think back to a time when you felt your heart flutter when you wore the perfect outfit. It's a great feeling, isn't it? It's not an impulsive feeling, but it's a sense of euphoria that great fashion makes us feel. For me, this feeling comes when I find the perfect bag to have by my side whilst strutting down the city streets to attend events, meetings or even for a cheeky cute lunch date. I want to feel fashionable, powerful and most of all, happy!
So when I was scrolling on Shopbop, I started to feel my heart flutter when this Marc Jacobs beauty caught my eye. Soon, like always, my mind began to race and flicker through when and where I'd wear this. The colour was just perfect, but most of all, I pictured my #StyleHigh moments wearing this. I could picture myself at an event with this epic bag. The statement strap crossed over my black blazer, making a scene to make heads turn and wonder.... who is that fashionable babe?... That's when I feel confident in my #StyleHigh moment. Of course, it'll go with every outfit, I thought to myself as my mind started to wander into fashion utopia.
Have a little scroll, you're bound to find something on Shopbop to have your latest #StyleHigh moment too.
