week was another style breakthrough for me, for a couple reasons.  I
purchased my first piece of camouflage clothing!  I resisted it for long
enough, but just felt drawn to it!  I always say go with your instinct,
and I’m glad I did.  I think it will get a lot of use this Spring. 

also was able to score an item that I have been tirelessly searching for
forever: a classic black varsity/letterman jacket.  I was thrilled to
find one, and there just so happened to be an extra small available –
this was clearly a sign that I needed it!  Along the way, I picked up this
burgundy flatcap and then what did I do?  Threw them all together to
create this look!  I was a little apprehensive about throwing a varsity
jacket over a camouflage shirt, but I wanted to wear all my new things
and – what do you know? – I liked them together! 

I guess the lesson this week is:  Don’t think too much about your
outfits, and don’t be afraid to jump out of your comfort zone!  I find
when I try to meticulously pair and match things in a methodical way,
it’s always predictable and “safe”.  But when I just instinctively grab
items I like and think might pair well together – they usually do!

– this week I challenge you to find a new way to wear one of your favorite, or most used pieces!  You might surprise yourself!  🙂

Thanks to Nicola Jefferis for photographing me, and dealing with my spontaneity!
