Don’t let them hold you back

This post was going to be about my new skirt . . .

But it’s more than that.

I bought this skirt this weekend. I  l o v e  it. However, I was nervous to get it. When you buy something out of your comfort zone, it’s just that: slightly uncomfortable. I was worried about what people would think.

Then I did something wonderful: I said “screw i!”. I’m buying it because I love it. Why would it matter if “they” don’t.

I’ve been doing this more and more, embracing my quirks and the things I love, even if it’s not the norm. If it makes me happy, isn’t that enough? I shouldn’t live my life to fit in, to please the whole, to not be judged.

Let’s face it, someone is going to hate things I choose to do, say, wear, or love.

But there will be others that love it too.

So why not go for it?

I am

Galaxy Gazing

I read about space nails on A Cup of Jo. The other night I experimented.

I used a variety of colors, as you can see.

It was hard to develop a technique. I started with a blue base coat. Then took different colors (teal, purple, silver) and swirled, dabbed, and dashed. I finally covered with the pink glitter.

Here’s the final result. I was satisfied. (:

What I’m wearing: variations.

Sunday was full of retail therapy. Here’s what I wore.

V-neck: Goodwill/American Eagle. Shorts, Leggings, Sweater, Belt: Forever 21

It was cold in the morning.

Shoes: Thrifted. Necklace: Sister

This was before I spilled my sbux…

Shorts, belt: Forever. Tights(!): Target. Flats: Sears. Sweater: Gwill (maybe American Eagle original?)

So then I changed.

I love my tights and my picture of the world that I recently hung up.

Any new additions to your wardrobe that you love?

&& Now I’m off to write, read, and write some more. Have a superb Thursday, tomorrow.

Well, it’s a cute puppy

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are.. but here it. is. HOT. Therefore, I have been confined to my house, car, and work. Or, rather, I choose this.

Anyway, I made my little sister take 1200 pictures of me the other day. Only to choose these. Which I still don’t like..

Oh look, Gardenia. (:
