Finally, for the first time in what feels like forever, I have an outfit post. Fine, it really hasn't been that long, but my internal blogging clock (get it? Like body clock? Oh, man.) has been pretty off lately. This isn't my most exciting outfit by any means, but it was the first time I really felt like myself in a while. Maybe it's because it was the first time I had worn a Peter Pan collar in some time or maybe it was just that this dress makes me feel good, but either way, I was happy in this. I think I'm starting to come to terms with the fact that I struggle with being stylish in the winter, and that's okay. Winter is for heavy coats, snow boots, and avoiding frostbite. If I walk outside in anything other than sweats, then I'm doing my job of a fashion student. And since I've never actually left the house in sweats (at least in recent memory), I'd say I'm doing pretty well for myself.
I do have a bit of a confession to make: I've been wearing pants. A lot. Like almost every day a lot, which explains why I haven't been feeling like myself. I have no shame in wearing them anymore (especially because it would be considered unsafe to walk outside in anything less than a pair of pants layered over a pair of fleece lined leggings), but those outfits are nothing that I consider "fashion blog worthy." I did just remember that I have one set of photos of me in pants that I'll have to post soon, but for the most part, I'm keeping those looks from you. I don't need proof of those outfits on the Internet to exist for all eternity. I should mention that I have a system:
If the weather is:
- Less than 10 degrees: pants
- Less than 30 degrees: fleece-lined leggings or tights
- Less than 60 degrees: tights
You guys, I'm not even joking about this. It's a tried and true system.
Other than spending far too much time contemplating leg wear, my life has been pretty boring. This weekend, I hung out with some friends, got some ridiculously cheap DVDs at a store closing sale (I'm still in mourning), and saw "The Lego Movie." I can't stress enough how seriously awesome the movie was. A couple of friends of mine made fun of me for going to see it, but I assure you, it's definitely not just a kids' movie. The pop culture references are very much geared toward adults, the voice cast is amazing (Chris Pratt, Charlie Day, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie...need I go on?), and the humor is sharp. I can't remember the last time I saw an animated movie this fantastic, let alone one that had a 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. Plus, if you grew up playing with your brother's hand-me-down Legos like I did, you can't beat that nostalgia factor. I have no regrets in spending an entire paragraph of a blog post trying to get my readers to go see "The Lego Movie." None at all.
