Daily: Own It

Some days I’m in a more risk-taking mood when it comes to my outfits. Keep in mind that I attend a small university in Indiana – not exactly the fashion capital of the world. However, my personal belief is that anyone can wear anything he or she wants as long as he or she owns it and does so with confidence. Here’s the breakdown:

Striped Tee: Goodwill
Skirt: Goodwill (Gap)
Flats: Garage sale
Bag: Garage sale (Coach)
Sunnies: Forever 21
Necklace: Rue21

My first initial thought when I found this skirt at Goodwill last spring was that it desperately needed to be paired with a skinnier-striped tee (thicker stripes would have clashed). I was a little anxious about pairing two relatively bold patterns together for class, but when I woke up this morning, I knew it had to be done. So, I took my own advice and wore the two patterns with confidence.

So tell me … what are you anxious about wearing on a normal day?
