Fashion is evolving, right? This blog helps me step out of my comfort zone and try new things. I saw this similar jacket (outfit #3) on Chloe a few months ago and loved the look! Beforehand, I would not have walked into Forever 21 and thought, "Wow, this jacket is awesome!" Nope, I would've thought, "That looks like a jailbird coat." I showed this jacket to David who said, "That's not your style," to which I thought: exactly, a new challenge!

I love the colorblocking with this striped jacket! You're way too stylin to be a jailbird, haha! Blogging has also helped me to step out of my fashion comfort zone and try new pieces :)

Ha! I love that your first though would have been "jailbird." And I'm right there with you in feeling that fashion is truly evolving and that blogging helps with enjoying the ride! It's all about stepping outside your comfort zone and taking risks...and I think you did it beautifully here Mary Ann!

Oh, and you wear Kendra Scott earrings better than any blogger I know!

I love these two colors combined! Especially with that glittery belt :)

Chloe said...

Thanks for the shout-out! The jacket looks fab on you and oh, I want to steal your Tom Ford sunnies *so* bad. I'm terrified the Anouks will be too narrow and squeeze the holy bejeezus out of my wide head--do they run narrow?
