I cannot believe the year has flown by this fast and we are just days away to 2018. Just the other day I was setting up this blog figuring out what I was going to call it and the fashion direction I wanted to take and wow what a ride!
I experienced many firsts during 2017, highlights include; creating and completed my 100 days of fashion journey; allowing me to explore the fashion scene in Denver, creating and posting on my fashion blog ‘letmeshowyoudifferent’, visited Malibu, Vegas and New York for the first time, attended my first Roger Waters concert which opened my mind to the Pink Floyd experience, white water rafted in Yellowstone Park, Montana and I finally understand how American football works- – and let me tell you, I love the game! Go Steelers! Certainly, an amazing year but I’ve only just begun…
From a fashion sense, I incorporated athleisure into my wardrobe, a completely different look from my eclectic style but I love it. The key to any new style is to totally make it yours by adding your own charm. My athleisure look is courtesy of She -Op, bringing you amazing athleisure wear that you can easily take from studio to the street and still look like a bad ass stylish babe. Athleisure wear is comfortable, functional, and an all-round awesome look. When it comes to rocking it like a pro you need to find a happy medium with the ‘sportswear meets street wear’ style. It’s all about fashion and functionality and finding a balance with all the fashion elements that you incorporate and layer.
For this look I wore a hooded leather moto jacket. Jackets, whether cropped or sporty, always adds depth to any outfit and this leather jacket offers a good blend to the look. Texture is key and fabric goes a long way, so for the bottoms I went with metallic legging in olive, creating a more fashion feel with the black top underneath. I thought it would be interesting to add my plastic block heels for a sleek finished look, but to achieve a studio or toned-down look all you need to do is slip into a pair of sneakers and you will still rock this outfit.

With the new year around the corner, I want to wish you all a happy and prosperous 2018 and remember to #showthemdifferent.
