I thought I had died and gone to Heaven when when The Impeccable Pig asked me to choose an item to style from their online store. I wanted one of everything. I perused their site for a good hour trying to decide what I thought was "my style" and what I thought you guys would like to see.
And surprise! Well, I guess it might be more like, "Hey, Shanna, you surprised yourself!". I ended up selecting something that I probably would have never given a second look, much less bought to add to my closet.
Now, I am by no means saying that I don't like this top because I do...I actually LOVE it, but it is definitely a piece that I wouldn't normally pick out for myself. Why? Well, I am not real sure. Maybe because it's white. I am not a winner at keeping things clean that are white. Maybe it's because it has ruffled sleeves. Never been a big fan of those. Or maybe because it looks like I am off to do some sort of rumba number on Dancing with the Stars.
Regardless, I was drawn to it the minute I saw it. It was something different. Something that I wanted to style and feel challenged by doing so. I had ZERO clue what I was even going to pair with it. I just knew I REALLY liked it. This is SO not me because typically, I only choose items that I know I can remix, wear with something I already own or feel as though it's a staple.
BUT, this top is so fun and as soon as it arrived I starting playing around with it in my closet. Yes, I play pretend dress up with my clothes. Don't judge.
Anyway, I ended up with this: layering it over a maxi dress (remember this one), adding a dash of leopard, a pop of color and hoop earrings. Deep gasp....yes, I said hoop earrings. I haven't worn them in years, but for some strange reason I felt like they needed to be resurrected.
So, where is this post going? Well, I am here to say that sometimes it's fun and daring to step out of your fashion comfort zone and try something new and different. Doing so might surprise you and help you discover new ways to work your closet and style. Plus, I am sticking to my new "Just Do It" philosophy and not turning back.
So, have you added anything recently that you never thought you would wear? If so, spill the beans.

P.S. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. The devastation is catastrophic and I cannot even begin to fathom the pain and sorrow that so many people are experiencing today. May God bless and strengthen all those who have been directly and indirectly affected.
