It’s finally my favorite time of the year, fashion-wise and everything-else-wise too :). Every weekend there is something really fun to do, and for the last few weeks, I’ve been wearing the heck out of this Evans top as I went to the ren fest, the county fair, and today to a bonfire. I had been wanting to wear the top with a leggings and boots look, but I very rarely actually wear anything tucked into boots. It’s a look I love, but not one I’ve worn before, and I tended to talk myself out of the look thinking it didn’t look “right” or wasn’t my style (whatever that is). I shared a quick pic on Instagram, and everyone told me to go for it, so I finally did!



It ended up being perfect for the bonfire and walking around outside. I love the style of the boots, and I’ve owned them for a year but this is the first I’ve worn them out. Over the past year or so, I’ve become more and more aware of how much the way I dressed as a kid and teen has affected how I dress now. Also, how people dress where I live really affects things. When I go to New York City, I feel more free to wear whatever I want because everyone is dressed differently, but here just wearing a nice top and jeans can be “overdressed” to others. I know that I get to chose whether to dress according to those things or not. I guess that’s what the OMCZ challenges are for!
