Stripes & Florals

If you want to know where I am in my life, take a look at my outfits. This look in particular tells so much about who I am right now. Three things come to mind immediately:

1. I'm taking risks.

Mixing prints are so much fun, but it's definitely a risk. Linda and I were recently discussing just how homogeneous my life was just a year ago. It was all the same people, doing all the same things...blah. I loved those things and those people but I needed to be shaken up a bit. I'm open and ready to try different things and different people. Let the risking begin.

2. I'm not taking anything too seriously.

Intense would be a pretty accurate description of my personality. I go hard! These days I'm just living..chilling. Not many things are urgent. I'm truly in love with all things I'm dedicating my time to and most importantly they nurture me and uplift me in a way that renews my energy. I can relax...breathe... Cheers to that.

3. I'm comfortable in my own skin.

I've heard that the older you get the more self assured you become. It's true! I'm so good.

Conventionally, strips and florals don't "go," but in recent seasons they've made a big splash all over the blogosphere. There is only one thing I keep in mind when rocking florals and strips, keep things in the same base color. The base color here is black. The skirt is from ASOS, the cropped top is H&M, and shoes are from JustFab.

Stylishly Yours, Nia
