Spanish Muse: Confidence I

Confidence I

April 23, 2014



I believe that confidence is a work in progress; you get better at it with age.
One aspect of confidence that I focus on is keeping an open mind to new things. I push myself to try new experiences and fashion trends; stepping out of my comfort zone helps me grow and learn more about myself. 

Shopping at Marshalls always gives me the confidence to try new fashion trends without the financial commitment of hefty designer prices. I consistently find amazing pieces that are on trend at reasonable prices. I don't spend hundreds of dollars on one piece of clothing, I'm on a realistic budget. I need to always walk away from a shopping experience feeling like I'm the winner! 

I'll be sharing two Spring looks this week that are outside of my comfort zone. 
I've always thought pastels were not flattering on me, but I've seen these colors popping up everywhere for Spring. I decided to take a chance with this top and go outside of my comfort zone. I love the bohemian design of the top and and the lace detail. These shorts are a great neutral and will be fun to style for the warmer weather. I also love this soft teal clutch, I've been carrying it constantly since I got it and am surprised at the versatility of the color.

Happy Wednesday!
