I am obsessed with clothing in mustard coloured tones right now! It's super 'in' and all over shopping stores. I'm all about it!!
I've always been a little nervous about wearing bright colours because they really tend to demand attention and believe it or not, attention scares me. I know, I know, hard to believe. But it's easy to receive attention over social media for me because I can hide behind my cell phone and no one has to see me go red or get a lip quiver lol.
The reality is I get a bit of anxiety when people look at me or come up to me, so wearing an outfit like this is definitely out of my comfort zone. But pushing out of my comfort zone is my new thing right now! My resolution this year was to get out of my shell a bit more often and take risks.
Shopping online is already a risk because you can't try it on, but an even bigger risk when it's something completely different then anything you've ever worn before. I was really worried about how the pants would fit because I hoped they'd be long enough that I could still wear them with heels and not look like i'm wearing flood pants. The key to shopping online is accurately measuring yourself, finding the websites size charts and reading reviews. Not all websites offer all of these things, and if they don't I tend to stay away from them.
I found this outfit on www.fashionnova.com and was very pleased to see how detailed the size chart, product details, and shipping details were. Another plus is when I scrolled down the page I was able to read reviews from other people who had purchased it. So having never ordered from this site before I felt a bit more confident doing so with the amount of information and positive reviews it had.
I took the plunge and ordered the
DON'T REACH LACE UP TOP-MUSTARD in Size Small and the
STRIPED DOWN HIGH RISE PANTS- NAVY/WHITE in Size Small
Immediately after ordering my outfit I received a order confirmation in my inbox. Then the following day I received an email saying that my order was shipped and on it's way, with a tracking code provided. I always appreciate a company that ships quickly after receiving an order! One week later I received an email confirming that my order had arrived.
I opened my package up and everything fit perfectly and looked exactly as it did on the website! I have only ordered from this website once but all in all the experience was awesome, the prices are great, and the quality seems to be on point. I will definitely order from here again.
I wore the outfit for a photoshoot and loved them as a pair. But so much can be done with these items! I wore the top one night with a pair of skinny jeans and heels and received a lot of compliments on it. Then I recently went to Arizona and wore the wide pants with a navy tie back crop top to a patio bar, and had both men and women coming up to me telling me how much they loved my outfit! I let go of my attention nerves, decided to rock it with confidence, and ended up having a lot of fun. I look forward to doing more with these items and I want even more wide pants and bright tops now.
Hope this helps you!!
