Blouse, Zara / Booties, Sam Edelman / Jeans, Zara / Jacket, Hinge / Bag, H&M

Skinny jeans, booties, and a leather jacket. Could life get any better? Although some might say this is a typical me outfit, they would also say that long baggy blouses are not entirely my scene. They would be right on both counts. I think that when trying out a piece that’s not so much your style, it’s comforting to pair a new piece with the things you’re most comfortable in. That way, you can allow yourself to ease into a new trend that you’re trying out, and you know you’re sticking to your own style. Being bold with the things you wear is one of the best parts about fashion. But if you’re anything like me, there’s hesitation the first time you wear a new trend outside of the house. Is it going to look okay? Am I going to regret this outfit later? Even if it doesn’t, at least you were comfortable! If you do like it, try going even¬†bolder the next time around. xx

Houndstooth Heaven

Skirt, Zara / Sweater, Forever 21 / Shoes, Topshop

The desperate search for a plaid mini skirt came to a stop as soon as I spotted this Houndstooth mini at Zara. Though not the colorful plaid that seems to be popping up everywhere, I love that the skirt gives the same bold affect. It can be paired with the same things as a plaid mini and possibly even more due to its monochromatic color scheme. I live in California, so I plan on wearing this amazing little piece all winter long, but you guys over on the East Coast definitely can rock the mini all  season too! (Maybe just plan on staying indoors when wearing one) Whether you decide on plaid or houndstooth, definitely pick up a bold mini skirt for this A/W season! xx
