Daily Outfit: Wear Something that Scares You

For Freckles in April‘s 10th day in the Winter Challenge, she challenged us to wear something that scares you. It took me a long time to figure out something that freaked me out in my closet but this is what I came up with:

I’m scared of wearing:

  • white pants for fear they’re going to get stained
  • the same thing two days in a row
  • precious pieces of jewelry
  • overly tailored jackets because it makes me look too corporate
  • high heels because of what they do to my ankles

Today I threw caution to the wind and wore all of these things.

Outfit Breakdown

  • Rust blazer – thrifted
  • Multi-strand necklace – gift from Grandma
  • Paisley tunic, transformed into a tube top – Nordstrom Rack (I wore this yesterday, but differently)
  • Nude layering tee – modbod
  • Braided belt – F21
  • Watch – fossil
  • Bracelet – Annie M. Jewelry
  • Nail polish – Deborah Lippmann @ Nordstrom
  • White pants – Gap
  • Nude heels – some shoe store I can’t recall

One thing I am not scared of is orange. It’s my favorite color and wearing it gave me courage so wear all these other things that scare me.

Fill in the blank: Wearing ________ scares me.

  1. Wow – I love the burnt orange blazer with the white pants. It is very pulled together. I also love how you styled the tunic. I think it adds just the right amount of whimsy to your outfit.

    I just realized another thing that I am scared of – wearing a lighter color skirt or pants with a dark shirt.

  2. Thanks Immayer — when I first found the blazer at the thrift shop I thought it would be a great display piece but ended up loving it. The heels are great, but definitely sitting shoes :) -Sarah

  3. Thank you for your lovely compliment! You\’re absolutely right — the flowing paisley tunic definitely balances the more structured pieces.

    Re: wearing a lighter color skirt or pants, give it a try and see how it works! Let me know how it all plays out for you.
