Warm Autumn Palette | Out of My Comfort Zone

Curvy blogger wearing rust jeggings, printed tank, nude flats and handbag.

Happy Monday!  Today's post features an outfit that makes you feel warm inside and want to indulge in all things fall such as apple cider, pumpkin pie (or if you're like me sweet potato pie), cozy sweaters and the list goes on.  These jeggings in a warm rust color are the perfect base to any fall color palette.  When I slipped these on they were so comfy and stretched easily over my humps (my lovely lady lumps...lol).  Ok, corny, I know.

Anywho, I plan to wear these ALL season long!  They will be in heavy rotation and I do plan to wear them until the threads come loose...lol.  This color is gorgeous on my skin tone and I pranced and danced in the dressing room when I put them on.  Ya know what that means *inserts shame face emoji*, yep they came home with me.  I swear, this shopping habit is a hard one to break.  Although I've cut back drastically, I still want to challenge myself to wear what's in my closet.  They were only $13.99 though... *le sigh*.

Like, seriously, I did NOT need another pair of pants this color.  Why?  Because, I have a pair in a similar color already.  I came to realize it when I viewed this post here *side-eye*.  Ummm, yep, those are in my storage bin from last year.  I have yet to dig out and rediscover those things I loved wearing last fall season that are still in good condition.
For this post, I paired the pants with a sandy, nude colored open front cardigan and keyhole tank with a gorgous teal and rust print.  This cardi is a lightweight sweater material, so it was perfect to wear in my icebox of an office at work.  Y'all these nude laser cut flats are soooo comfy.  They were inexpensive (very inexpensive) and I've been wearing them non-stop...with everything.  For added character I've hopped on the trendy train and popped on a cute fur ball chain to my purse.

Outfit Details:
Keyhole Tank | Jones New York (via Gabe's) $8.99
Jeggings | Citi Trends $13.99 
Ballet Flats | Citi Trends $6.99 (similar)
Open Front Cardigan | Gabe's $9.99
Vera Wang Purse | Gift from mom


And now I bet you're wondering, well, what is soooo out of her comfort zone as it states in the title?  I tucked my shirt in...okay...lol.  If you've followed my blog for a while, you may notice that I NEVER tuck my shirt.  Well this day, I tucked!  And guess what, nobody died...hahaha!  My fupa and I have a love hate relationship.  More like I wish it would leave me alone and go far, far away...lol.  So this was a big deal for me.  At first I was self conscious and wondered if everybody was staring at it, but as the day wore on I became more relaxed and felt free to love me...ALL of me.  

What have you tried recently to push you out of your comfort zone?  

Thanks for reading and engaging with me!  Until next time.....  Be Bold, Be Beautiful, Be YOU!

  10. You're so cute! Hey, I think its perfectly acceptable to have two pairs of pants of similar shades because you never know when one pair is going to bite the dust then would have none! Also there is a slight difference so they are basically two different colors ;) I think you look great from head to toe. :)

    1. Hahaaa! Well thank you for the warm compliment. And now that you put it that way, you're right, one pair will eventually wear out and I'll have a back up pair. I truly do love these colors :)
