It's No Rules November! I'm Breaking a Fashion Rule Every Day

We returned from our honeymoon on October 5th, and my adjustment back to reality has been rather abysmal. Not only abysmal, but embarrassing, lackluster and very hermit-y.

So, to kick myself in the pants, to get back into the saddle, back on the horse, and back in the game, I devised a plan. I call this plan:


For the entire month of November, I will be breaking a fashion rule every, single, day. This experiment has shown me that when I take risks with what I wear, I’m more likely to take risks in my life, too. With daily rule-breaking outfits what positive change I can create in a month? To keep myself on track, I’ll be sharing every outfit with you. Daily check-ins will happen on Instagram stories, and every Saturday I’ll post an outfit round up here on the blog.

And here’s the kicker- I’m hoping you’ll join me.

If you’re thinking, “Well, that sounds nice, but how do I even create a rule-breaking outfit?” I’ve got you covered! I’ve made a guide called, How to Build a Rule-Breaking Fashion Experiment that breaks down each step. Sign up below, get it sent to your inbox, and let’s get this party started!


How you participate in No Rules November is entirely up to you. If a whole month of adventurous outfits makes you queasy, that’s a-ok! How about one or two days? Want to take on the whole month, or anywhere in between? Hooray, let’s do this!

I have one request from you. Keep me updated!! Snap a picture of your rule-breaking outfits and send them to me. On Instagram, tag me in your photos (I’m @costumeparade) or use the hashtag #norulesnovember or #cprulebreakers (or both!). If email is more your jam, you can reach me at If you’re confused, hit a road bump, or just want to chat, I’m here for you!

I’m very good at action shots. ;)

Now, I’m off! I have lots of rule-breaking outfits to plan and trick-or-treaters to prepare for.

I can’t wait to see what this month has in store for us!
