I purchased these velvet flare pants from Urban Outfitters a few years ago but I wasn’t confident enough to wear them. I felt that they stood out too much from what everyone else was wearing at the time, and I wasn’t comfortable standing out. At one point in my life that all changed, and I decided to be myself and take more risks with my personal style, regardless of what others think. Looking back, it’s funny to see how these pants felt out of my comfort zone, and now they are a popular trend worn by so many girls. I learned from this experience to never let someone else’s opinion hold me back from being myself. I hope you do the same!
