Defying Expectations

(love the accidental movement in this photo)

There are certain things that people expect to go together: little black dresses and cocktail parties, pencil skirts and pumps, wide leg/bell bottom jeans and platforms.  The pairing of these things are a bit of the norm and work wonderfully together, especially when each person adds their own special touch!  However, vintage silk shorts (seen before here) and high-top Nike Dunks aren’t exactly an expected pair, and I think it kind of makes this outfit lovely in its own right :-).

Cardigan:  Minnie Mouse for Forever 21 (Forever 21); T-shirt:  Mossimo (Target); Shorts:  IDK (vintage from my mom’s closet); Shoes:  Nike (Nike Outlet)

Sometimes I’m very smitten with my blurry photos, so I share them anyway :-).

We should never be afraid to step out of the box and defy expectations, whether it be in fashion, career, love, or overall life!  I find that when I do, wear, say what feels most authentic to me regardless of what others may expect is when I feel like my best self and am most satisfied with life.  What do you do (or want to do) to defy expectations my darlings?

P.S. Yes, I do jump on the trampoline with my niece and nephew from time to time, but it is an exhausting workout, lol.

    What do I do to defy expectations? Hmmm…I don't know. I'd have to find out what the expectations are first!

    Lovely outfit! There need to be more ways to incorporate comfy shoes into stylish outfits, thanks for making a start! I have a pair of high-waisted shorts from my mother's closet in exactly that bright red color, but sadly they're not silk…

    I loooove this look! :) It's always funny the reaction I get from people when I wear my nikes….just goes to show – you can be cute and stylish without heels. Its all about the confidence! :)

    A mickey and minnie sweater! Love the minnie cardi, I have a minnie Forever 21 v-neck sweater. Love your sneakers, those are very unexpected, I think sneakers always are unexpected when people are use to seeing you in high heels.

    I love the sneakers too! I want to cut my hair to the new growth and explore being natural. That is definitely an expectation I want to defy.

    I think those kicks work with your look too! Good for you for wearing what you want. And I like the blurry shots…glad you included them. Sometimes they're just so pretty. I struggle with including them on my blog. I think I will.
