I got the opportunity earlier this week to style an outfit for myself that’s not something I’d typically wear. We went to a Metallica concert and I was so excited because the show was going to be a completely new experience for me. I’ve never been a fan of heavy metal (I admit I only knew one song they played), but was looking forward to a new experience. I knew my usual flowy, patterned, and somewhat colorful concert look was not going to work. I never wear all black because I feel it’s too heavy of a look for me most of the time. But, I wanted to do something totally different and have fun getting a bit out of my comfort zone.
First, I decided on my black jeans and studded boots, which I LOVE by the way. They add the right amount of edge and I’m so glad I didn’t shy away when I first saw them. I wear them way more than I actually thought I would! I found a White House Black Market tee I bought years ago and ended up throwing a cami underneath to create a more interesting neckline. I added black accessories, dark lipstick, and gold jewelry. At that point I liked the outfit, but wasn’t in love. I think it’s important to still feel like yourself when you’re trying something new, otherwise you can quickly lose confidence. I decided to break up the black with a denim top tied around my waist and instantly felt much better. It lightened everything up, while still giving me the rock vibe I was going for!

I’m so happy I tried something that’s not typically my style and saw a band I normally wouldn’t. It was fun to switch things up in my wardrobe and as far as the concert goes, let me tell you…those guys can ROCK! We had a great night with friends and I had a blast watching my hubby sing (or yell, haha) along to songs he listened to years ago.
How do you push yourself out of your comfort zone? I’d love to hear any tips you have!
