Be Inspired :: Risk Taker

by DressWithPurpose

Happy Thursday!


My Purpose & Inspiration :: The week is flying by… always seems more hectic at the office on short weeks! Finishing up some projects today in the office for the hubby as I will working from the home office tomorrow.  I am not one who is into designer labels as I am very conscious of shopping on a budget but still looking and feeling great! Yet I had some very amazing luck and savvy shopping this weekend at Nordstrom Rack and Off Saks 5th Avenue.  As I mentioned a few days ago I never really even go into Off Saks because they are too expensive even on clearance but with a buy 1 get two free it seemed to work within my budget, hence today’s blouse. Then got super lucky at the dress clearance rack, I looked in every size just in case a great deal in my size might be hiding somewhere else and that is how I found this dress. So are you wondering where my risk is today for today’s Risk Taker wardrobe challenge, well my risk today is pairing this amazing top with this amazing dress! It is definitely not something I would normally do but when I was looking for inspiration for tomorrow’s challenge on Pinterest, I was inspired by a look similar to today’s outfit. Risk doesn’t have to be super big and bold, it can be as simple as stepping out of your comfort zone, have a great Thursday!!! Transform your image one outfit at a time by learning to love the woman you see in the mirror!
