New year, who dis? Happy 2017, everyone! It only took 5+ years of blogging, but I finally shot outfit photos in my glasses. Yup, the secret is out: my eyesight is horrible. But I’m stuck like this for awhile, so I got these new glasses last fall after TEN YEARS in my old frames that I’ve had since my freshmen year of high school. Yes, you read that right. High school. They were these tiny rectangle frames that were not cute, and you can search and search my archives, but you’ll never find them on this blog. Last summer I had a phase where I couldn’t wear my contacts due to an eye infection, so I was stuck with my tiny frames for over a month, and I still wouldn’t take photos in them. Like in this post, I was blind as a bat without them. Can you tell?
Okay, so… black and blue. What’s the big deal? Or rather, black and navy to be more specific. People don’t like it. I don’t remember when I first heard this was a no-no in style, but it has always perplexed me. Didn’t we all once agree that black and brown was a crime against society, and now we’ve welcomed it with open arms? The older I get, the more I realize that a lot of rules in fashion are just bologna, and we should all just wear whatever the hell we want. You wanna wear a fanny pack outside of a music festival? Do it. Ugly walking sandals when you go out for brunch? YES. Leggings as pants just because they’re way more comfortable than jeans? I’m with you. Here’s to a new year of celebrating different styles and not caring what other people think. *praise hands*
