Risks in Style and Life...

Confession time... For the better part of my life, I've never been a huge risk taker.  Yup, I'm a pretty much a "sure thing" and "walk the straight and narrow" kinda gal.

Might sound funny, but (for a while, now) I've been wanting to sport booties with a skirt or dress--sans tights.  Problem was... I wasn't sure I could pull it off...

Long story straight... I decided to take a risk, and go for it, anyway.  Actually, I'm glad I did.  Felt good to give it a go, and I honestly think it worked out just fine.

Yes, this risk was one merely involving style. Yet, I know that it's the baby steps taken in this life that allow for ascension to next level.

You see, I believe that every fashion risk taken serves as a quasi "training ground" for future gutsy moves on a much larger scale.  What do you think?

Share with me your thoughts on risk taking in style and life.  Would enjoy hearing them!

Joy and peace, T.
