Stepping Out of My Style Comfort Zone

Earlier this week, when I had the school day off, I went to a movie with friends. I woke up that morning and asked myself the age old question. What am I going to wear? After searching my closet and dresser, I settled on some pink and brown paisley skinny jeans and a hot pink top with leather flip flops. It certainly did not feel like a major style moment for me, but I figured it would be fine for the movies. When I walked out of my room, my 18-year-old sister said that my outfit simply would not work. She had me put on white shorts, my pair of white Converse, and her mint tank top with a tribal design and gaping arm holes. I was hesitant, but surprised when I arrived at the movie theater and saw my friends wearing extremely similar outfits. To my surprise, I actually looked…really cute. That’s when I really started rethinking things. Maybe my style is more than preppy. More importantly, maybe I need multiple wardrobes to match my multiple personalities. What I needed was casual clothing for when I’m just hanging out with friends. I am in high school now, after all.

Later that day, my sister informed my mom that I needed play clothes. My mom and I completely agreed with her. After school on Friday, the three of us visited our local PacSun. I became super excited as I browsed the store and picked out anything that I fancied. This was finally my chance to reinvent myself! After about two hours, I left with a casual dress, a long sleeve top, a short sleeve graphic tee, a floral print skirt, some ripped shorts, and three pairs of jeans that actually fit my legs!

When I got home, I realized that my two wardrobes would need to be clearly separated. I simply moved all my preppy clothes to the top rack and my new clothes to the bottom. I think this could be the first step in a new stylish direction!
