this may come as no surprise to u, but getting dressed is very important to me. it's a fun yet meaningful outlet for me. a good outfit makes a regular day a great one, & a great day even better. so when i fuck it up, my whole mood is fucked up. ESPECIALLY because i am stuck with looking at said fuck up all. day. stylin' or not, this probably goes for a lot of my fellow humans. to "look good, feel good" is a valid mantra.
the above look isn't terrible. but idk something just feels off, like something is missing. i LOVE the top half of the look: the bright colors, my new sunglasses, the checkerboard shoelace as a choker (à la @katierosebrook) but idk man, maybe i shoulda worn different pants? maybe worn a jacket on top of it? it was, like, 50 degrees after all. i DEFINITELY shoulda wore yellow socks for another pop of yellow instead of boring old gray grandpa socks! UGH! welcome to my brain when i don't like what i'm wearing !!!!!!!!!
i know it sounds like i'm overthinking, & i am, but this is my EVERY DAY PURPOSE we're talking about! if i'm not overthinking it then it must not be important to me, u know? getting dressed is especially important for me at this point in my life because i wear a uniform at my full-time job, & i don't really go out much outside of that (are u playing the world's smallest violin for me yet?). when i put together looks, whether it's to go out or for this blog, i just want everything to be perfect, i don't want it to be a wasted opportunity, u know? ugh i'm probably putting way too much pressure on what is supposed to be fun for me. i should chill, as i do like what i wear like ~95% of the time, & when i don't, i obvi survive through it lol.
what little thing (aka a first world problem lol) automatically ruins your day?
i typed this up a couple of weeks ago & now looking back on the pictures this look really isn't bad lol but i'm keeping this commentary just to show y'all how crazy it gets in my head when i question what i'm wearing.
also shout-out to my tripod reflecting in my lenses! always there for me whether my outfit is cute or uglyyyy <3
