Bold & Bright

Leather rider jacket: H&M Icons Collection (old), Sweater: Thrifted, Dress as skirt: Thrifted, Ankle strap heels: Zara (old), Bag via Ross (c/o)

The irony about me is that I'm a shy individual who loves bold and bright clothes. Once you get to know me, the bold and bright personality comes through but, I feel so very awkward at social functions where I don't know many people. I've definitely gotten better at social settings but, it's a learning process. Thank goodness I have someone with me who is wonderful at being a social butterfly (talkin' about you, husband). 

The nice thing about personal style is that you can capture bits about yourself into an outfit. So...seriously, new people I meet...I am a "bold and bright" kind of gal.

  7. Just because you sometimes feel like a wallflower doesn't mean you have to dress like one - plus having a great outfit and a statement piece can sometimes be the catalyst you need to start a conversation with someone.

  10. It is interesting to me that several bloggers recently have mentioned being shy/reserved in personality but drawn to bold clothing choices. Shows off a different side of you- and a lovely outfit too!

  11. So your clothes are the outward expression of your inner self? Because you come off as shy but warm up to that boldness that mimics your clothing aesthetic.

  12. Love this, love the bright colours love how you've paired it with a leather jacket too :) x

    I like to keep to myself too. I remember we talked about this before. :) But like you, I love bright colors as well! I love that dress as a skirt and that H&M Icons jacket is the best!! <3


  14. I love this skirt! And the bag! Fabulous look. I'm pretty shy too when I first meet people but eventually they get to see the real me after I've known them a little bit.

    I'm just like you! I'm really shy, but I have a distinct style and I hate blending into the background, style wise. I love the skirt!


Thanks for your comment!
