Don’t you just love it when you manage to pull off an outfit you wouldn’t think would suit you? I find that this always seems to happen when I am out shopping with a friend and they end up picking something out for me that I would normally turn a blind eye to.
On the weekend, I went into Torquay to find an outfit for my work Christmas party on the Sunday that just passed. My friend Crissy came with me and she basically picked my whole outfit! I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for because I didn’t know how dressy I wanted to look but after walking through H&M she discovered a very bright orange zip skirt. Now normally, I wouldn’t wear orange at all but I was convinced to try it on with a black tank top and it all came together quite well! It was a good find and I would have never have bought that if I was on my own. I think we get this idea in our heads that we wouldn’t suit something that we don’t usually wear because we
get scared that we won’t be able to pull it off. A bit of encourgement from a friend goes a long. They seem to pick out things that they can see on you so you trust their judgement.
The outfit was a great success and I loved how it all came together. It was lucky I had Crissy with me to pick out my outfit otherwise I never would have thought of it!
