I once came across the quote, 'The magic happens outside your comfort zone' and the scary truth is, it really does. It is human nature to get accustomed to the way things are going in life, like the routine you have every morning, or the familiar pair of shoes you choose to wear daily. That's what the comfort zone is supposed to be like - Comfortable. But after a while, comfortable transforms itself into boring and the rawness, the energy and the spark goes missing. And that is when you realise, if you want the magic to happen to you, you've got to get out of your comfort zone.
With fashion as well; although cotton t-shirts and denim cut-off's are nothing short of a personal favorite, pushing the envelope and slowly sliding out of your comfort zone can be slightly scary but highly rewarding. When it came to this outfit of mine, this grey blazer is my magic.
