Last night Carlos and I drove out to the Heights to try a new restaurant called Coltivare. Unfortunately the wait was way too long so we didn’t actually eat there, fortunately we found this fun mural down the street on the side of a cute gelato place and pulled over to snap some pics! This was more of a casual date night (hence the jean shorts) but I jazzed it up a bit with these stunning earrings Carlos brought me back from India last week. I’m very lucky that he has such great taste…he also brought me back this clutch :)
It’s nearing summer time and it seems like fashion keeps finding new ways to show off more skin. If you haven’t noticed, this girl, is totally buying in! I was hesitant about my first crop top but once I bit the bullet there was no turning back. This top definitely shows a lot, but finding something great to wear under it was half the fun. I had originally thought I’d wear it with a lace bralette (cuz I def wasn’t wearing a regular bra) but then I remembered I had this cute bustier style bra and it almost looks like a fitted crop, perfect. I’ll admit I was still a tiny bit nervous as I stepped out the door and found my landlord outside, I mean I’m an adult now, is it ok to wear something like this to dinner, in public even? ahhh (what are people gonna think?) She complimented my “cute top” and all I could think was “thank God, ok, I don’t look vulgar.” I almost feel silly admitting all this but then I tell myself, I can’t be the only one that feels this way about trying new things that can be a bit uncomfortable at first.
Lesson: It’s probably not as bad as you make it out to be in your head. Let go and take risks! Where’s the fun in life if you don’t?!?
