After seeing a trend of my friends writing super cute, successful fashion blogs, I decided I wanted to do one, too! The only problem is that I have no clue what I’m doing. Also, most of the things I wear are items I got because I was at my friends’ house that one day she was purging her closet. This results in me basically explaining how to put lipstick on a pig.
Let’s start with the scarf. It’s gray. And it’s a big circle, that goes on forever. They should call them that; ‘goes-on-forever’ scarves. I bought it at The Mustard Seed, which is a fair trade store. I think it was made in Bolivia. I haven’t taken it off since I bought it, except to shower. It has already been there for me through many a sneeze. I do recommend.
I bought the red pants at Marshall’s, I think, with my mom. They have a gray stain on the ankle that remains sticky even though I’ve washed them four times since it mysteriously appeared. Speaking of washing them, they shrink every time. I have to wear my Walmart boot-socks with them so you can’t see how short they have gotten. Word to the wise: DON’T DRY YOUR MARSHALL’S PANTS. It’s probably on the tag, so I’m gonna take the blame for this one.
The boots are a funny story. I visited Colorado a year and a half ago, and knew my mom had these old Timberlands in her closet. I borrowed them “just for a week, Mom, I promise” and then they fell into a whirlwind romance with my feet and I couldn’t dare tear them apart. Even though they’re at least half a size too small. Love doesn’t always make sense.
The undershirt is actually a short-sleeved sweater-dress that I found at Goodwill. The flannel is another Marshall’s find that I have worn into a state of rags. You can’t see it, but there’s a huge hole in one of the sleeve cuffs that I occasionally put my hand into on accident.
The cup was a dolla at Starbs and it’s reusable, for those of you who aren’t willing to pay $16.99 for an aluminum traveling mug (cough cough, me). I actually didn’t mean to get it in the picture, but it adds to the ‘basic’ vibe, so I’ll keep it.
The crappy quality photo was taken via Snapchat, which is a good idea for those of us whose cell phones who are in a constant state of ‘full memory.’
There you have it, friends. Everything you never cared to know about my outfit today.
