Step outside your comfort zone. Most of us have a signature style, at least by the time we reach 40-something. Over the years we tweak our style and update it, and sometimes we have a little fun going outside our comfort zone.
Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!
This outfit does have elements of my signature style: a flowy midi skirt, tough booties, and vintage jewelry. The deviation from the comfort zone today is the color, print and cut of the blouse. I usually prefer an open collar or v-neck, in a solid color (most often a neutral) and with cool undertones. This vintage blouse stretches all the “rules” and I love it. 😊
The colorful shirt was thrifted in NYC, and the designer is Orla Kiely, of whom I had not heard. She’s an Irish designer who mostly creates homeware and handbags, all in her signature warm colors. The khaki linen skirt is thrifted too, I’ve forgotten where.
Are you stepping out of a comfort zone today, or relishing your style uniforms? Show us (whatever you’re wearing) in the link-up!
