I’m still amazed that I can wear colored jeans. Really.
I haven’t worn anything but black or dark blue jeans for years and suddenly 2012 has me conquering my fear of color and wearing all sorts of styles I never thought I could pull off.

But here I am, just a week ago at the Top Latina Blogger Retreat in Washington, DC (I was one of 70 selected to attend…woo hoo!) wearing…polka dots and brights. Together.
So how did I end up wearing it? A few weeks ago my mother was clearing out her closet and making her donation pile when she handed it to me.
I may have actually jumped away from it. In fact, I sneered at it. I had seen it in her closet for years and I was not about to make it mine. But she insisted I try it on (as mamás do) and what do you know… it fit (it’s a size 6 so that was amazing, but mind you the bottom button barely closes) and it didn’t look bad at all. I stared at myself for a few minutes, then I thought, it’s kind of cute and its fitted so it accentuates my new waist.
I am at a place in my life that I only thought was possible for the single and super thin. I never, ever imagined I’d be sharing my looks and encouraging others, especially mothers to dig through their closets, put together new looks and take fashion chances no matter what your size or budget.
So yes, these “Ah Ha” style moments are a big deal for me. I do hope you enjoy and take some inspiration from them! And if you want some help or have a question let me know.
Have you discovered a new look lately? Are you wearing something you NEVER thought you could pull off and now you are strutting your stuff all over town?
