Outside My Comfort Zone #1

Hello lovelies!

Last week on Twitter Rachel from Happyness Magnet asked if anyone was interested in joining a new fatshion challenge, based upon coming out of our comfort zones and trying new things. As my 'big thing' this year is trying to be braver in fashion and lots of other ways, I found myself saying yes before I had thought about it! I've wanted to come in on one of these regular blog hops for a while now, but have never been in the right place at the right time before. Ah, serendipity!

The first challenge for us is Blazing Red to incorporate a blazer and a pop of red.

I don't actually have a blazer, so I used a military jacket. I added a military brooch with red and gold to enhance the red blouse and the tarnished gold buttons on the jacket.

I've challenged myself in three ways here
  1. I hate having my hair off my forehead as I don't like my wrinkly forehead. 
  2. I've never worn a sheer blouse without a vest top underneath.
  3. I don't really like my lower legs at all because there's a rash from Fibromyalgia, which thankfully doesn't show up too well in photos with flash.

If I was wearing this outfit outside I'd wear thick tights or maybe even leggings underneath. I'm not quite that brave yet, but I will be ONE DAY!

When I put this outfit on my husband said 'Are you after some [sex]?!' What a charmer! Naturally, I declined! ;)
