This outfit was inspired by a photo I recently saw and pinned on Pinterest. I loved the idea of layering a flannel shirt over chambray! I added the belt because I felt like a box without it (my flannel isn't tapered at the waist at all). I love this look and might try it again with a different plaid shirt and different shoes. And possibly different pants. I'm getting QUITE sick of the way these jeans fit me. The search for perfectly fitting, not-too-stretchy jeans continues!
I had a really interesting experience recently. I was featured on ModCloth's Instagram account a couple of months ago wearing my Halloween outfit. A few nights ago, I went back to look at it and read the comments (bad idea). A couple of the comments at the end caught my eye. Two girls basically thought my outfit was hideous (though my skirt was cute). I know that with this blog, nothing I post is safe from scrutiny, but this is new for me! I wasn't sure whether to be angry at them for wasting their time posting a hurtful comment or laugh because it's just so ridiculous... I mean, don't people have better things to do? I was more hurt when I first saw the comments than I am now. I've got to get used to it now that I have this blog! Not everyone is going to like what I post or my style, but that's okay. That's what makes the world go round, or so they say. (I'm a poet and don't even know it!)
