Comfort zones

Share this post
The best things in life happen when you step outside your comfort zone. During my stay in Cape Town I have found so much truth in that saying. Whether it was moving into an apartment with two complete strangers or dancing half-naked in front of the camera for a bikini commercial castings– those things felt really uncomfortable at first but after I did them I was damn proud of myself.

The same applies for fashion.
When I first saw this circle skirt at Topshop I thought it looked so cool, but I knew that the rather extravagant design was a little over the top for me and that I would never actually wear it. “That skirt is kind of huge”, I thought, “people would just stare at me.” But then I thought about it: how are you supposed to grow if you never try anything new? How was I supposed wear fashion and represent it on my blog if I didn’t challenge myself a little? So I bought the skirt. And guess what? I don’t regret it and I have even gotten compliments from strangers on the street about it.
Not so far out of my comfort zone were the crop top (my summer essential!) and the yellow bag (how can you not fall in love with it?) that I paired with the skirt.
Because even though a step outside the comfort zone can be quite fun it is nice to maintain a balance between challenge and security.

Who would it say that this skirt is so nice on! I wouldn´t probably wear by myself, it is not my style, but such a nice piece. And the bag, I love it! 🙂

Tolles Outfit! Ist der Rock aus einer älteren Kollektion? Werde im Internet leider nicht fündig.

Ich habe den Rock im Topshop in Kapstadt gekauft, da ist er gerade erst neu reingekommen. Er müsste daher aus einer neueren Kollektion stammen. Habe ihn auf der Website aber auch nicht gefunden :/ <3

Du hast so Recht – die schönsten Dinge passieren wirklich, wenn man etwas riskiert und Neues ausprobiert – eben außerhalb seiner "Comfort zone"

Thank you Aurélie 🙂 Yes I think I was very lucky that I bought it in the shop, because I also didn't find it in the online.

I absolutely ADORE this look. It's so classic and beautiful! I love that you chose yellow as your accent color. Perfect. And the skirt is just a masterpiece. Love the waffle print and the perfect shade of grey!
