As many women have discovered accessories are the key to creating a unique style. In my case I have two bracelets I like to wear, and some fun earrings for the holidays. Shoes have become more of a statement because I have a pair of pink and black Vans, and a pair of purple sneakers I wear when I am feeling colorful. That is a huge step towards breaking away from my traditional white sneakers.
Scarves, hats, and miscellaneous items come into play. I am still very conservative in how I dress, and that is fine. The important part is that I am trying new things, and I am enjoying wearing colors.
The most interesting part of this is what other people compliment me on wearing. It surprises me. 3 months ago

Tonight was a work party and I wore black cords, black low heeled shoes, a black lace top, and my black sequined hat. I got a lot of compliments on my hat and my spider earrings. :) As I was walking to the party I started to put my hat on and I had a momentary concern because some high level managers would be there. And I dismissed the thought because I wanted to wear my hat so why should I care what they would think of it. And I love the spider earrings because they are so different.
I give myself a big pat on the back for dressing how I wanted and feeling fine with it. (OK reading this last line it is really is silly that as an adult I would be worried about what people might think of my clothes.) My style is still conservative though I can see that hats are going to come into play more.
I did pick up a fake lei and wear it around work earlier this week. No one said anything, but the cashier at McD’s did look at me a little oddly. I was just having fun and the fact that no one said anything was interesting. Time to shake things up in my life! 9 months ago

I didn’t realize when I even “completed” this. It just sort of happened. I like my clothes relaxed I think it’s just taking the time to get to know yourself and figure out what you feel most comfortable in, and not what’s “hot” at the moment. Besides, by being comfortable in your clothes (and they don’t have to be expensive) does wonders for your self confidence.
I have never had so much fun making a list of things I like and screen capping cute outfits online. Anthropologie is one favorite perusing spot. And I am more happy to go thrifting now – found some pretty incredible deals – I get complimented all the time on pieces I found at goodwill and my secret thrift haunts. ;p I don’t get all my pieces there, but it is a thrill to find something with a similar look for a fraction of the price!
What also helps is a list I’ve kept for the past 5 years (I know, it sounds extreme but is really easy, actually). It documents every clothing item that’s been purchased by me (or gifted to me). I mark through the items I gave away (to friends or goodwill, b/c I don’t wear them) and I also highlight favorites that I wear ALL THE TIME. That was the best guide. Kinda weird, because you get to discover another side of yourself. 14 months ago
When I started this goal, I just wanted to try something different. I bought my pink and black Vans and felt like everyone would notice my shoes. It’s so funny to write that now because a few people noticed my shoes, and those who did liked my shoes. :) Then I bought red tennis shoes, and purple, and a black and white checked pair that I like.
Then came wearing hats. At first the same thing happened. People liked my hat and complimented me on it! So I have branched out and worn a few hats to work. It’s fun. And now I notice people wearing hats, and colorful shoes, when I am out in public.
Part of this goal was to dress nicer at work. I have worn heels and nice tops several times, and it works. I like my new look, and so do others.
This goal is FUN! I like playing with accessories. I like mixing things up, and keeping people guessing. And while I still dress fairly conservatively, I know I can branch out and feel confident. 16 months ago
