A few weeks ago, I was sitting at a local restaurant on my lunch break reading a few of my favorite fashion blogs.  I came across one that announced flared jeans were back in style.  The funny thing is I was sitting there in these flared jeans that I love and have been wearing for years.  I never knew they were not in style.  I love wearing these to work for casual Friday because I think the flared look comes off a little more professional than a skinny jean.  It kind of got me thinking about trends and what is in or out.  Anna Wintour made headlines when she mentioned the decline of trends and the rise of  individuality and self-expression.  I personally love this idea!  I think a person should wear whatever they want whether it is on trend or not.  Maybe my flared jeans where not on trend for awhile, but I love them and I kept wearing them.  Next year if they are on the out list, I am going to keep wearing them.  I think a big part of personal style comes from wearing what you love not necessarily what others love.  I have seen people in outfits that I would never wear in a million years, but on them I absolutely love the outfit. Why?  Because they love what they are wearing and it comes across in the way they walk, stand and move. I know I would not be comfortable in that, and it would show big time!  You should love what you wear everyday!  You will be amazed how much your own self-confidence can be improved just by wearing an outfit you love.  If you are spring cleaning your closet like me, ask yourself not is this in style or on trend, but do I love it or would I wear this right now and be happy in it.  Forget the rules and trends, wear what you love!

    I love the idea of wearing what you love and worrying less about what’s in style each season. I think women would be much happier if they approached their wardrobe this way 🙂 Flared jeans look great on you especially when you accessorize an outfit as well as you did.

    Love this outfit. I really like those rings and I just discovered I had some polish that colour stashed away in a makeup case and I am sporting toes that colour this week 🙂

      Thanks! I love this color! I’m about to have to redo my polish and I think I may have to stick with this color a little bit longer!

  7. I don’t wear jeans but if I were to consider buying some I would prefer these to skinny jeans as they look more comfortable and fit in with my modest clothing style.


  8. I always love flared jeans! Love your blue polish too!

  9. Kim says:

    Well said and great message!

  10. I love this outfit, and the message to this post. A favorite of mine is taking things I love to wear and making them fit with today’s trends that I adore. You should love the clothes you are in because you love them, not someone else.
