Today’s outfit was really plain, yet busy at the same time. Lately I’ve been into mixing different textures and prints and this outfit is a prime example of that! I felt really proud because today a random 7th grade girl at school complimented me saying:
“I like your outfit!”
“You somehow managed to make all that work.”
‘All that’ referring to how almost every article of clothing I was wearing had some type of cool print or texture. My jersey shirt a metallic, glittery sheen. My high-waisted shorts a stippled, polka dot effect. My backpack a floral print. My shoes an aztec/tribal print. And even my tights had a slight diamond cut-out detail.
I personally really hate lace-y or anything resembling fishnet tights—especially black ones. Too Taylor Momsen-esque for me. It’s just way too provocative and looks harsh on the legs. I like these tights a) because they’re teal (which is my favorite color) and b) because they have a very subtle cut-out detailing that is just kind of peeking out. The pattern isn’t BAMallinyourfacelookatmemylegsaresexy or anything like that. Instead it gives the outfit a rather cute and playful look.
Haha now you might be wondering, why are you holding Grover? Well if you look at my Facebook profile pictures album, you’ll see that I have three other pictures featuring some Sesame Street character. I never really liked the show, but I adore the puppets. Grover is the last of my collection and since his shade of blue matched my outfit, I decided to throw him into the picture just for kicks.
Hope you enjoyed reading this. :)
