Approximately 2 minutes of plaid, plaid, and a bit more plaid to get you out of any potential plaid-styling rut.
I recently have been intensely perusing the web in search of a nice pair of camel colored suede ankle booties, which unfortunately has not resulted with a purchase of that item. In fact, it resulted in me purchasing this lovely sweater from Forever 21 that, despite being quite thin, is very warm and cozy. I have worn it twice since it came in the mail and both times I had to stop and think about how much like a yeti I felt. At first, I was afraid that this new more animalistic side of me may compromise the rest of my outfit, but when it comes to my yeti lifestyle, I have realized that I am a classy yeti. I groom my fur, wash it with luxury shampoo, and then sit back in my icy cave for a cup of tea and some Hulu. I am the classiest, fashion loving yeti on the mountain.
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.
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.
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.
