I know it's still summer, but it was cold today and I've decided to enter this outfit in the Modcloth style contest on Weardrobe. Click here to like it and help me win (I probably won't, I'm such an optimist!)
Anyways I guess, after that riveting story I'll talk about my outfit. I'll start with the shoes. These are the most amazing shoes I've ever owned (even better that my jellies in 1st grade). I just received them in the mail today along with some of my college textbooks. When I first ordered them online it I had nightmares because they were sooooo much money ($145 including shipping). Yes, it's alot of money. And yes, I will probably not be buying anything else for a while. But, I see them as an investment. If I wear them all the time then they'll be worth the money.
This is a really funny picture because it's so candid. My mom was taking pictures and wanted me to read out of my new chemistry textbook. As I glanced at it I was shocked at the content. It was completely foreign to me.
This may seem off topic, but yesterday I was shopping with my mother and sisters my mother was being helped by a very nice women. She casually asked what the ages of my two sister's and I were. My youngest sister says 11, my older sister says 19, and then I say 18. She was shocked. She then told me that I looked like her 14 year old daughter! I am so tiered of this. I was getting my hair cut about a month ago and the one of the stylists asked my mom what grade I was going into. She said that I was going to be a freshman. He asks, "High school?" And when my mom responded with the correct answer s he says, "I could have sworn she was in High school." Ahhh! I feel like there is a certain expectation, set by the media, to look and dress a certain way. I'm supposed to wear tons of make up, and wear revealing clothes. Especially with people in their mid-twenties playing teenagers in movies and teen stars like Miley Cyrus, dressing disgustingly and sending skanky messages. I'm not like that and refuse to do that. I rather look a little younger than look like I'm trying to hard. That's a little revelation. I just had. Thanks for reading.
