It’s home again, home again jiggity jig. I will always have a bit of wanderlust and love hopping on a plane, train or car for the next adventure. This year I zipped off to Cancun, Tybee, Charleston, and Dallas and just returned home from Paris. But what I love even more is coming back home to Athens, GA - home sweet home.
I’m part homebody and part world traveler. Don’t worry, we will have a weeks worth of content on Paris. What we wore and where we went. But today’s ootd came along with me to Paris with a slight deviation. Instead of wearing mules, I wore a pair of boots. The weather in Georgia is often mild this time of year (the 60s or 70s), so I have many options for footwear. But when it’s cold and rainy as Paris can be, then it’s time for more practical footwear.
Today, I'm talking how to step outside our fashion comfort zone
I'm featuring a sweater from Rails and pulled together 2 alternates

A striped sweater is a perfect choice when the temps dip down. And I especially like the color combo of camel and black that's trés chic, so I couldn’t resist this oversized sweater from Rails. It’s on trend with an oversized fit and longer sleeves, and it looks fantastic with a pair of black denim.
We can’t always worry about looking as slim as possible or as appropriate as possible. Sometimes, it’s good to step outside of our comfort zone and incorporate trends into our wardrobe. That’s what keeps us looking modern, fresh, and relevant. It’s not about looking younger it’s about looking current and up-to-date. Permit yourself to step outside your style box from time to time. Who knows? You just might like the end result.
This pair of horsebit mules from Sam Edelman are also fun to wear especially with jeans. But they’re a good choice when it comes to many of your pants hanging in your closet. Who doesn’t love options? They're a dupe of the iconic Gucci Princeton Mules and every bit as chic.
If the weather is cold or rainy (hopefully not snowy yet) in your neck of the woods, then a pair of boots is your best bet. I brought this pair of Roxie Back Zip booties to France with me and loved how durable and comfortable they were for navigating the cobblestone streets of Paris.
