Today’s post is all about taking risks: fashion risks, to be exact. I was inspired by Dia & Co., a personal styling service for plus-size women, to take part in an interesting challenge: taking a fashion risk. Since I am thinking about what I’d like to buy for spring and my upcoming Florida vacation, I well, took a risk, and said I’d do it.
For me, taking a fashion risk would involve wearing yellow. I don’t own anything in yellow. Not even something like a purse or scarf. So I did a little online research and found a few things I’d like to try on. (I’m not a fan of buying clothes online, unless I’ve already tried them on IRL.)
I like this cotton v-neck tee in Sunshine Yellow from Lacoste. I think it would be cute with khaki or white shorts and a bright lip.
I am also loving the denim South Ocean shorts in Lemon Drop by Lilly Pulitzer, which you can see here. Perfect with a white tee on a hot day!
Ashby, my contact Dia & Co., told me that every Friday, Dia staffers celebrate Try-Day Friday, and challenge themselves to step outside their comfort zones, style-wise. I love that twist on Casual Fridays!
Tell me. What does taking a fashion risk mean for you? Let’s think outside the box in the comments!
This year, I’m doing the Eyecandy Project 52 photography challenge. Every week, we have to take a picture inspired by a prompt, such as From Above. Some prompts are relevant to the time of year, some are more evergreen. I’m thinking I’ll post my more successful efforts here about once a quarter. Wish me luck!
