Bright and Bold

All-in-all, I have been considered to be a “quirky” person.  This outfit without a doubt shows off some (maybe a lot) of that quirkiness.  When I was thrift shopping a couple months ago the bright and somewhat gaudy print on this dress really popped out at me, and I immediately knew that it belonged in my closet.  I feel like whenever I go shopping strange clothing items gravitate towards me.  To add to the bold dress, I wore a pin that I recently purchased, and used it as a necklace.  Yes, the pineapple pin also gravitated towards me while thrifting. 

Although bold items such as these aren’t everyone’s “thing,” there are definitely other ways to incorporate these strange pieces into your wardrobe.  Just put the pineapple pin (or any other quirky jewelry item) on your cardigan, and you can add just a little quirky spin to any outfit.

As a person I have been considered, and consider myself as a “wallflower” (hence this blog’s name), and you are probably thinking that what I’m wearing does not portray a wallflower whatsoever.  The purpose of this blog is for me to expand my horizons, and step outside of what used to be my comfort zone.  I am still an awkward person, and a wallflower, but if I never step out of my comfort zone, this wouldn’t truly be my “evolution.”
