I always strive to keep it real on the blog.
This is my style journey, my life journey, and when I look back on old posts I think it is awesome to see how I used clothing to express myself. Not every outfit is considered 'blog' worthy but I want you to see the real me. This week has been emotionally tough. I have been dealing with the past, trying to sort through feelings that I chose not to deal with for awhile. I have randomly started crying at songs, I am flooded with memories and insomnia has reared it's ugly head. Yet I am still living my life, working towards goals and "functioning" in a way that no one would realize how much I have been dealing with internally. It is funny how we know how to make everything look like it is great. I have to say that I actually am HAPPY in spite of the emotions. I feel so blessed and know that everything that we go through betters us. I am THANKFUL for the past even when I have to deal with it. It is funny that this week I have been drawn to blue clothing. Crazy how it reflects my mood. The past few days I have worn a large amount of blue, have been drawn to blue items and even wore blue eyeliner. Who am I? Blue is not typically a go to color. Haha.
I received my January Stylemint shirt in the mail and knew I had to wear it immediately. It's Navy. Awesome. I have received quite a few emails asking me about my Stylemint tee's. I have bought AT LEAST one shirt a month since the launch (with the exception of December since I didn't LOVE any of them). The shirts are very true to size, SUPER soft and go with everything in my wardrobe. They look great after being washed, keep their shape and there are so many styles to choose from. I highly recommend the line. ANYWHO...I don't typically like Navy and dark denim together, I tend to wear navy with a lighter denim, but I wanted to wear these jeans since they fit me perfectly right now :) My hair was not presentable so throwing on a beanie was just the touch I needed to lighten up the all blue ensemble. I find it very amusing that I was wearing flip flops with a beanie. You see it is not cold where I live. It was 75 degrees today. When I went out it was around 67. The beanie was for looks, not warmth. Only in CA will you see people wearing beanies and flip flops together. I'm not wearing make up either. I am happy my glasses hide that. Looking at the pics I maaayyyyy need to buy a smaller size in the shirts next time around. It is a little big, COMFY, but big. YAY! Overall I felt like an emo, CA Hipster in this ensemble. Ay yi yi!
