Being bold takes on different meanings depending on each person. For me, I’ve always been the kind of person where being bold meant trying something that for an average person would be quite normal. I get stuck in my comfort zone and quite frankly, would be perfectly content staying there except for some minor changes here and there. Plus it doesn’t help that I over think EVERYTHING, am a tad self-concision and at times I’m a little to comfortable being in the background. Since joining in on this venture with Sara 2 years ago on our blog and now shop, I’ve found myself slowly coming out of my shell a little at a time making bolder choices. This outfit is a perfect case-in-point, aside from modeling in front of the camera.
As you know we’ve been working on quite a few new pieces to add in the shop just in time for fall! One of the pieces is our new relaxed tee with leather sleeves! Did we mention they are going to be available in a pink and gold leather sleeves?! To give a little preview of our new shirts for the shop we wanted to put together an outfit that is a little different than our usual. I’m sure to most it seems like nothing too out of the ordinary with all of the cute, patterned track pants that are all the craze right now and while I am ecstatic about how the shirts turned out, for me this was a step out the box. Thinking about it, it’s kind of funny that I felt this way because I love patterns, colors and interesting pieces but never seems to be brave enough to wear them myself.
If I’m being completely honest I’m still warming up to the idea of wearing patterned track pants in public and feeling confident enough in them to think I have pulled off wearing them. However, these pants were a good start and it definitely is a bonus that they are extremely comfortable!
*Note: These pants are from the newly opened MASI Shop. Not only do they offer a good product but they are donating $2 of every purchase to Artists for Orphans, a local Vietnamese charity helping provide services and facilities for children born with defects as a result of Agent Orange.
