blown out

I have such a headache right now! Ughh
I messed around with my blog layout a bit over the weekend. I like this better. I also added some more links to my blogs area and a last.fm recently played tracks list. It's a lot easier than having to think of what I'm listening to at the moment. I can just say, "Here's my last.fm url, it has everything categorized." Ha, I'm so lazy.

Christopher took a lot of pictures of me in this outfit, but the sun just wasn't cooperating. Most of them look blown-out, and took a lot of editing to look decent. So these 3 were the only ones that made the cut :/

I absolutely love this cardigan. If I didn't make that clear in the last post, haha. I'm on-and-off with this dress, though. I think I might sell it, or donate it to goodwill. The zipper on the side is broken and only zips up half-way, but I would only wear it with a cardigan anyway to hide it. I dunno. I just really wanted something in buffalo plaid at the time, so I might've been a bit hasty in purchasing it :/ BUT, this was another outfit that I just threw together with things I never thought to combine before! Blogging about what I'm wearing really inspires me to look harder in my closet rather than buying new things. Not to mention the inspiration I get from looking at other bloggers! It also makes dressing differently feel like it's worth my time. There aren't too many fashionable people down here. They are few and far between. Most of my friends have unique style, but we're a rarity. So it's easy to feel really out of place when you're dressed so nice and everyone else around is in jeans and t-shirts. I kept getting looks at the mall in this outfit, but then I also got compliments on my tights :] I've gotten to the point, though, that I just don't care if my style is eye-catching. I try to take it as a compliment. But it's such a testament to the way people view getting dressed when it's fairly simple to me to put even the slightest amount of thought/energy into an outfit only to then get called out for always looking "dressed-up." I go out with people sometimes and they tell me they feel "underdressed" compared to me. I feel bad but, it's my style and it's really not hard! It's fun!
