As I have said before, I live in jeans. 90% of my outfits start with a pair of jeans, or jean shorts. While there are now a million styles of jeans, I sometimes feel that my outfits can get a bit monotonous. So, in order to prevent myself from getting bored with wearing jeans and a top/sweater/tee most days, I decided to invest in some awesome statement tops – ones that I can wear with several styles of jeans and skirts!
I know that these tops may come off as loud to some, but what’s wrong with that? When I start to feel insecure about my outfits and afraid that I am drawing too much attention to myself, especially living in Ocean City, MD, I remind myself of Carrie Bradshaw – my fashion idol. I’ve literally watched every episode and movie multiple times. She was always the best dressed and never cared about being “over dressed” or standing out. I mean, come on, she wore a freaking tutu! So the next time you find yourself obsessed with a top or a dress or any item of clothing, but are afraid you won’t have anywhere to wear it – buy it anyways and wear it whenever you please. Sometimes I get dressed up just to go to the grocery store – and yes, people stare, but who cares! If it makes you feel good, embrace it and wear it whenever and wherever you want!

** My favorite brands for statement tops and dresses are StyleKeepers and Endless Rose. Both brands are inexpensive yet super stylish! **
