This Akira faux fur coat is LIFE! It is purple, dramatic and I love it. 😍 Have you ever tried something on because you think it is utterly crazy and end up liking it?
MEEEEE TOOOO! All the time. That is how this wonderful coat and white cowboy boots from Akira Chicago ended up moving into my closet. I hope for a long time! 🙏
“Do I look like Barney?”
The first 6 thoughts in my head:
- “Puh-lease girl where are you going to wear this?”
- “Is this toooo over the top?”
- “Is that woman over there judging me?”
- “Should I wait for it to go on sale?”
- “Do I look like a Barney?”
- “How many times will I wear this?”
I took it off and put in on about 5x’s and I noticed every time I put it on I smiled.
“WHO doesn’t like to smile?”
By the time I made the decision the rampant questions in my head ceased. I loved the cheesy smile I had. WHO doesn’t like to smile?

Sometimes you just have to buy it and not be too concerned about other people or the voice inside your head. Clothing is meant to spark joy, laughter, help strike up a conversation, show your personality, creativity and more.
I challenge you to wear something in your closet this week that makes you a bit 😱 . (Comment below what the item was and how you felt.) Channel your inner five-year old when you get you don’t know what to wear. He or she will give you a nod of approval and tell you that the sparkly socks, fun blazer, velvet blue pants, fun flat are A-OK 👌 to wear!
