Wearing the unexpected

Have you ever surprised yourself by being drawn to something completely uncharacteristic of your normal style? In the past year, this has definitely happened to me a few times. I was never one for snakeskin anything, and yet a month ago, I spotted this pair of 7 For All Mankind snakeskin jeans at a Loehmann’s sample sale and had to have them. (The price didn’t hurt either — $20, what a steal!) Well, I got cold feet after buying it, though, and I started second guessing myself with an inner dialogue that went something like: “Red pants? Red snakeskin pants? Really, now, what were you thinking?!”

After some reflection, I realized I needed to get out of my comfort zone, and these jeans were a way of just doing that.

I embraced the idea and immediately wanted to push myself farther by pairing them with another unexpected purchase: my ‘Homies’ parody sweatshirt.


To break up the dark colors, I wore a contrasting light chambray shirt underneath, and kept this outfit from going too casual by wearing a pair of pumps.






I strongly encourage everyone to take a chance and go a little off-road with their style choices. It’s fun being a little unpredictable!

Did anyone get anything from the Isabel Marant x H&M collab yesterday? I tried my luck shopping online but unfortunately I wasn’t fast enough. I had a handful of things in my cart but wasn’t able to check out before everything sold out. Oh well, it wasn’t meant to be for me. Maybe I’ll swing by the H&M this weekend and see if, by some miracle, there is anything left. Hope everyone else had better luck than I did!

Thanks for reading, and have a great weekend!
