A long vest + wide-brimmed hat may not feel like the most wearable, everyday pieces, but they can be. The most amazing outfits, meals, and art would never happen if people we were too afraid  to try due because of what people thought. It can be easy to get into a wardrobe rut or even a life rut by worrying about the outside perspective. News flash! It’s all about you. This is your life and you are writing it. The same goes for everyone else and their lives, meaning they’re mainly focused on their script, not busy judging yours and if they are then toss ’em. By focusing on you and what you like you may find some winning outfits in your closet that you would have never tried, a yummy new dish, or even a new outlook on life and your dreams.

Before we get to the pics and style tips, here’s a life tip. Compliment yourself everyday. When you feel good you look good and vice versa. Treat yourself with kindness and recognize those good traits, inside and out. When you feel confident you can conquer the world.

{ Style Tips }

1. Don’t be afraid to dress a little dramatic. Sometimes I can almost feel a little silly wearing certain things, but then I remember that I shouldn’t and it’s empowering. Clothes and accessories are meant to be worn, so don’t only save for special occasions.

2. Roll the jeans and show off the ankle boots. I do this almost always with ankle boots (plus my jeans are usually a little too long) and it has a way a making the outfit feel more like a “look” and draws attention to the booties. Did you notice that the boots are this month’s Dare To Wear item?

3. Long vests can elongate + slim you. I write can because it’s gotta be the right fit. Fitting properly in the shoulders is key. If it drapes in the front then it’ll make you look thinner and offer extra coverage, which is a big reason why I love layering with vests.

I hope these tips inspire you to dare to wear different outfits and give yourself lots of self love!
