People are always telling me to get out of my comfort zone and I'm starting to get a little resentful about it. Why would you want to go out of you're comfort zone? That's where you're comfortable!! You wouldn't tell someone who was in their fuzzy Uggs, on the couch, drinking hot cocoa and watching bad tv in the middle of a snowstorm to get out of their comfort zone would you? No, because then they would be frozen and dead. Well, I'm thinking twice, maybe even three times before I step out my fashion comfy place, especially since yesterday's outfit debacle. I was about to head out for some tapas and had the bright idea to try something "different." My little "different" moment lead me to, not only go out of my comfort zone, but I was fully living large in my own fashion "Discomfort Zone." Without having to go into too much detail, there was a baseball tee, some red heels and a ton of bracelets involved. Why I thought it would be cool go to a Tapas restaurant as "Crazy Baseball Fan In A Thousand Bracelets Lady" was truly beyond me. Of course, there was a definite a spiraling down moment between bracelet #6 and the possibility of saving the outfit by putting on a cap and wedge sneakers where I should have stopped, but my crazy side completely took over! My lesson of the day: it's pretty hard to make a severe bob haircut look both sporty and chic at the same time--maybe even impossible.
As a result, I thought today I would go into my MOST comfort zone and stay there in a button-up and jeans. It is denim on denim though so you can see a little of my crazy peek through. Plus, the jeans are bell bottom so that's pretty mind-blowing. And that's about as much experimentation as I'm prepared for. As a rule of thumb, if you ever want to go out of your comfort zone, take the crazy in degrees and you should be fine. I jumped all in and I immediately jumped back out. For me, it's like they say, an old bob can't learn new tricks.
