Neon-striped top: Gap (also seen here, in orange), Leather shorts/ballet flats: H&M, Belt: The Limited, Necklace: diy (idea from Martha)
Never in my life did I think I would ever own a pair of high-waisted leather shorts. And then I started a style blog. Starting this blog has challenged me to step outside my comfort zone to try out clothing trends that make me totally uncomfortable- like high-waisted leather shorts. When I tried them on at H&M, my friend Steph and I both expected to laugh at how horrible they looked. But when I stepped out of the fitting room Steph said, “You know, those really don’t look that bad.” I’ll chock that one up as a win. Unusual style trends- 0, Katy- 1. I also think it helps that, here, I paired the leather shorts with my current favorite trend- neon! This shirt from the Gap is just so versatile, and I have to force myself to wear other tops in my closet because I just want to wear this shirt every day. And as for my belt, my motto has always been and always will be “Everything looks better with leopard.”
And you know what? Even though they’re not the most flattering piece of clothing I own, I think I’ll wear these shorts again. I actually kind of like them…
