Fashion bloggers work miracles on girls like me. I didn't think I could wear something so far outside of my comfort zone, but somehow I did. I really like the dark colors in the outfit, which is an instant way for me to try something new or trendy without feeling like I'm saying, "look at me!" I think the charcoal cotton shorts are also a safer option, and they seem more appropriate for evening, the only time I would consider such an outfit for myself.
So what's the worst that could happen anyway? Having someone tell you that you don't look so hot? It's not the end of the world ;)
Would you ever wear something completely outside of your safe zone?
