Guys, I totally feel like 80's rocker barbie right now. Hot pink lipstick. Gold bangles. A side ponytail. I mean...I can't really deny it. And guess what? I'm totally cool with it. It's pretty rad actually. The fun thing about starting a fashion blog is getting to dress up almost everyday. Life is short and I want to dress as fun and edgy as I want to while I'm still young. And for me, this outfit is pretty edgy. 

Something that I've learned since starting a fashion blog is that it's okay to take risks. Before I began blogging I thought my outfits were in style but once I started doing fashion posts I felt like all of my outfits were boring and lackluster. And that's not to say that simple outfits are boring, in fact, they can actually be quite chic. What I mean is that I didn't go out of my comfort zone. I didn't wear accessories, I didn't wear bright lipstick, I didn't wear anything out of the norm. Blogging has really helped me to feel confident enough to make bold fashion choices and to try new trends. In fact, I couldn't really even try to pinpoint my style if you asked me to. I'm all over the place. I love all things trendy, preppy, girly, classy, and edgy. Fashion is so fun; I wouldn't want to label myself and stick to just one type of look. Now will I love this outfit in a year? Maybe, maybe not. But right now I like it and living in the now is all that matters.
