Winter Florals

I don’t want to believe that I’m on a floral print kick, but I think I might be on a floral print kick. Luckily, I only own about 4 or 5 articles of clothing that are decked out in beautiful flowers, but my floral print backpack that I need to use for class might turn up as the factor that’s holding me back. It does add a nice contrast to poor weather, though. No matter how much bleak and chilly it is outside, I will always have a little piece of sunny spring day with me everywhere I go. It really can’t get better than that.

Wild Flower

I generally tend to stray from the adventurous when it comes to mixing prints. To be more specific, I usually just don’t mix prints at all because I am afraid that I will go outside 5 minutes before I am meant to be at school or work and will realize that I have made a  dire mistake. In fact, the only time I typically do mix prints is when I wake up in the morning and realize that I just don’t care. This was one of those days and I am quite pleased with the results.

Balancing Acts

I’ve spent the greater part of the past 3 days indoors marathon watching Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. I like to think mastered the art of dressing cozy enough to be completely comfortable as I lay on my bed bundled up in blankets, yet still respectable enough to go out into public without giving off the vibes that I’ve watched 2 movies and 26+ of one anime’s franchise. For the most part, achieving the right balance of various elements is all I’m really expecting at this point when I get dressed in the morning. Whether that balance comes from finding a way to blend together a love for an anime series with the need to go outside and be an upstanding citizen or from blending together a preppy plaids and cardigans with somewhat edgy t-shirts and bags, we must always remember that balance is key. Or perhaps I’m just beginning to take myself a little too seriously.
