Oh please please please do it.
I've also realized that if you have clothes in your closet that you love putting on, then you don't need as many. And then you ultimately have less of those "nothing to wear" moments when you just decide to keep your pjs on and eat pizza. All good. No judgement.
Lastly, there is versatility in statement pieces, like this brightly colored harem pant jumper. You wouldn't think it's an every occasion kind of piece but I packed it for vacation and wore it this way over a tee during the day, then as a swimsuit cover up, and finally in the evening with a statement necklace. And I'm planning a turtleneck and booties come fall, or come tomorrow if this cold summer weather doesn't quit.
It makes me smile and has bang for it's buck, so...
It's always worth trying on an item that catches your eye, even if it feels a bit out of your comfort zone. And if you try something on and it doesn't work, that's ok too. But at least you tried. Just means that piece isn't for you.
I try a lot of things on and don't always end up with a bright colored harem pant jumper to show for it.
A little PSA: Macy's is a great place to score Free People clothing on sale, they often run sales on top of sales. That is wear this beauty came from. Who doesn't love a double coupon day.
