“I wish I were Adenine because then I could get paired with U.”
Hello all! 🙂 I’m currently in the process of picking out my outfits for my next public speaking competition thing which is an away trip! (Insert some excited squealing here.) I’m finding it to be strange though, because I’m not used to picking out multiple outfits days in advance; it’s actually quite the daunting thought because I don’t have the option to change my mind if I suddenly hate everything I have packed. Alas, that is life, so I must deal. Hopefully I’ll deal better with my packing than I did with this shade (let’s just pretend my jeans hold the essence of the sun, so full light wasn’t really needed).
February is Heart Disease Awareness Month, which was celebrated in my anatomy and physiology class through presentations on heart disease. What better thing to wear on a heart related presentation, than my new DIY heart print jeans? (Insert children cheering for my success here.) My presentation went quite well, in which I informed my peers that because 1 in 4 Americans die of heart disease and we’re a class of about 20 people, 5 of us will most likely kick the bucket from it. In true infomercial personality fashion, I moved onto the whole “but wait! there’s more!” section in which it was revealed that only about half of these deaths have the luxury of happening in a hospital. From this, we can all probably infer that it was a bit of a morbid presentation, but my lovely heart jeans kept the room beating with life (There’s a joke in here somewhere. It isn’t that funny.)
I’ve always wanted to be one of those crafty people who revamp their wardrobe all the time to make their clothes look fabulous. Unfortunately, I’m not typically creative enough for those types of projects, but I thought I’d give this one a go after watching Bethany Mota (macbarbie07 on youtube)’s DIY Heart Shorts video for Valentine’s Day. It’s not really shorts weather so I did mine’s with a pair of jeans and only one leg was printed for originality’s sake, but I’m pretty happy with the outcome! 🙂
The nice thing about the color black is that it manages to effortlessly match nearly everything in my wardrobe while giving me a cover story for any “unconventional” outfit I may wear. This basically means I can be cuddly in my green sweater, throw on a floor length skirt, call myself polished and then have an answer for why I am dressed as such. So, when a classmate of mine asks why I’m “dressed up” I can promptly say that this is the only skirt I own that is dark enough to match my soul. Of course, that is a lie. I just like wearing sweaters with skirts and this skirt is lovely because it is both a maxi skirt and a mini skirt at the same time, but the made up answer garners much more interesting reactions.
It is a fabulously rainy Sunday for me and all I want is to go to the Goodwill and buy some new button ups and a pair of jeans to put prints on (I’ve been inspired by macbarbie07 on youtube.) I don’t really want to go out in the rain, but I just might risk it. If I don’t, this will probably turn into an unproductive day of pretending to be in touch with my artistic side whilst listening to radio on my computer. I really don’t have much of a life to be honest.
Seeing as this orange oversized cardigan is my new favorite piece in my closet, you all should be expecting to hear a lot of terrible, horrible pumpkin and Halloween references now. They’ll all probably be incredibly terrible and unoriginal, but I can’t help that I’m a terrible and unoriginal person (okay, I can help that, but I’m too lazy to come up with anything else.) Any who, I decided to attempt a slightly edgier look by pairing the cardigan with the roughest, toughest t-shirt I own (my dad got it from a wrestling match that was taking place where he did security.) Unfortunately, I am not the roughest, toughest person on the block, but for you all, I shall put in the effort. 🙂
