It's Thumping Thursday which means we are one day closer to the weekend. That along is reason enough to smile! I've had a very busy and trying week but I decided to take a quick moment to snap a quick phone pic. As you can see, I have not done a very good job maintaining my blog. **insert look of shame** Instead of making excuses, I will just make more of an effort to get here and get to posting! If for nothing else to keep a journal of my personal style.
Today I wanted to be dressy yet comfortable so I decided to wear a dress. I absolutely love wearing dresses. I can't explain why but for some reason I just feel prettier in a dress....well...most dresses. I snagged this cute little peplum hem dress from one of Ann Taylor's awesome 60 or 70 percent off sales. My first thought was to pair it with a blazer but I went for comfort and threw on my aztec cardigan. I was actually pretty pleased with the look. I added a few minimal accessories and a pair of ankle boots and I was out the door.

Speaking of ankle books, let me just say, this time last year I would have never worn a pair of ankle boots. I have always been a little self conscious about my legs. I hated seeing a gap of any size between my legs/ankle and the boot. As I viewed more fashion blogs and magazines, I decided to give it a try. Now I can't stop buying booties! I absolutely love this look. When I think of all the cute booties I have left at the store over the years because of a silly insecurity, I could slap myself.
What about you? Do you find a particular fashion trend appealing but are afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone?
