I felt recently that I was just wearing the same 10 items over and over again- and hadn't really putt myself out there in what I was wearing. So sometimes you just have to throw caution to the wind and wear something you would never normally try. For me it was an outfit that showed of my abs/ belly button.
As I have mentioned previously I have a bit of a phobia of people looking as my belly button- to me its just too high on my body and just no way near the cute level of anyone elses belly button. So wearing an outfit that gave the chance to see it (although I am sure on a normal person there belly button would be well hidden) is far out my comfort zone. But I thought "why not?".
Crop top: DIY
Jeans: Men's Levis- from a charity shop
Belt: New Look
Bag: River Island
I'm still far from the level where my whole belly is out in all its glory; and these reasonably high waisted trousers are although lower than my others- they are still a far cry away from any low cut trousers. I don't think I will EVER were low cut trousers with a crop (and DEFINITELY not slim fitted/ leggings) but I feel like I have achieved a lot.
These jeans are also a bit of an inspired moment- and I would love to hear your views on how they look (although I will still wear them either way). I thought I saw a woman wearing men's Levis rolled up at the legs (but second look she was wearing a pair of skinny jeans) and had to try them out for myself. I paired it with my DIY crop- which I had yet to wear as I tore the seam and hadn't got round to repairing (its all fixed now). I felt AWESOME! I wish I had a hundred crop tops with studs on them (but being big chested I find them hard to fit). If only I could wear the first from ASOS Marketplace, or the second or third from Boohoo. Curse my natural assets!
I hope this outfit encourages you to leap out of your comfort zone- unless you already have then please share!
P.S. Sorry I have been absent for these last few days- something very upseting and life changing has happened to me (which I am not ready to share with anyone yet) but I promise to be better.Jodie x
