Good Morning and Happy Monday guys! Today’s post is all about trying new things and why I think you should be doing it constantly! Most of my favorite clothing items and accessories are ones that I thought I would never be able to wear. Case in point: hats. I have always loved the way a hat could bring a look together, but thought I would feel so weird actually wearing one out in public. It felt so awkward the first few times wearing it, but fast forward 4 years and I rarely go a day without one. The point I am trying to make is, you’ll never know if something will work for you unless YOU go try it!! If you think one of the trends isn’t for you, like a cabby hat or round sunnies, I urge you to try it anyways! Trying new things allows you to learn new things about yourself.

This obviously doesn’t only pertain to fashion! For example, I am a known night owl and have always said that it is just the way I am. For the last 2 months I have been forcing myself to wake up at 7:15 and go to bed by 11 pm. Switching up my routine gave me sort of a restart and inspired me to get the majority of my work done before Patrick comes home. Do I think my night owl days are gone? No. But sticking to this new routine has been amazing for my energy and I am now reserving all-nighters for when they are absolutely necessary.

When was the last time you tried something new and what did you learn about yourself?!
