Back to back media presentations had me worried about what to wear for the second time in a week. This time, I went with my usual penchant for black and white, pairing a pair of ultra wide-leg pants with this breezy top. The look was good and comfortable but it needed something more to make it really pack some punch. I grabbed the pink feathered necklace, which I had for a while but had not figured out how to wear on a daily basis. Combined with pink tinted earrings and I was good to go.
To be honest, I liked the bright pink necklace paired with the black and white top. It worked for the presentation and garnered some fun and funny comments along the way, which is always a good thing. But I’ll be honest, later that day I was running errands in Boston and got one sideways look from a guy I was passing, and I almost took the necklace off. For some reason I suddenly felt like I was wearing some crazy ‘LOOK AT ME’ sign or something. I tamped down the urge to remove the necklace and kept going about my business. Why? Well, two reasons really. I want to become more bold in some of my pairings, and I like this necklace so why shouldn’t I wear it? And two, why should I let one look from a total stranger determine my clothing choices?
Tip: Take chances with your dressing and hold your head high when you rock your new look. Others and their opinions don’t determine your worth.
