On trying more new things // How We Wore It

Several weeks ago, I talked some about trying new things and how much I love doing it. From food, to vacations, to work outs, I really really love trying out things I've never got to do before. So when I had the opportunity to be part of a fashion collaboration post, I jumped on it. 

I'm not a fashion blogger, really I'm far far far from being even a little bit of a fashion blogger, but I'm always up for a challenge.

The goal of this collaboration is to take a look created by a "real" fashion blogger, and put our own spin on it, using items that we already own - thus challenging us to use the clothes we already have to try to come up with fun new combinations and looks.

This month, the inspiration comes from Robin Vilate, pictured below.

original post

If you know anything about me, then you'll know that I'm the queen of laid back outfits like the one pictured above, so technically this challenge wasn't exactly challenging as far as choosing an outfit went, but posing for pictures is a whole other story. Not to mention it was raining yesterday, so I couldn't take my pictures in front of a pretty brick wall like I'd imagined. (Maybe if I didn't wait until the last minute to do these things, I wouldn't have been put in such a pickle?)

I chose one of my favorite tops that I purchased recently from Target and a pair of jeans (also from Target) that I've owned nearly two years. Since I don't own any cute camoflage, I went for the next best thing: floral. 

 My favorite part about this top is that it kind of tricks you. From the front, it's just a simple casual grey tank top, but from the back, it's bursting with fun flowers and color. 

I stopped buying and wearing converses in high school, and even though I loved wearing them then, I'm just not into it any more. Probably because I can't stand to wear socks just as much as I can't stand to wear a bra.
