Blouse: Marshall's/TJ Maxx; Skirt: Thrifted; Shoes: Nurture
I decided to embrace the brights all at once. When I wore this outfit, people looked at me and looked again. (It could have been due to my blouse flapping all everywhere in the March wind. I had to fight to keep from showing an unseemly amount of flesh while I was walking across campus.)
Once again, my photo-taking has revealed that I bought something too big for me. The skirt fits in the waist, which is why I bought it. Also, it's hot pink and vaguely unprofessional while still having a professional shape. Anyway, it's loose everywhere else, but I didn't think it looked loose until I looked at these pictures. I may get it taken in a bit.
I love this intense yellow and saturated pink together. It makes me want to eat jellybeans.
ETA: Can I just say that I feel exactly the way Eva does in "A Glimmer or a Guy" concerning both writing a book and finding a man? I want both. Both require work, albeit different kinds of work. One of them I think I can achieve--I'm halfway through a manuscript and I've been told by people with poetry books already that my work is better than a lot of what's out there. One of them I don't--as my grandmother once said in response to a Supremes song on the radio, "Can't make nobody love you." Anyway, Eva's short essay is really engaging, and it made me want to write a terrible, trashy romance novel (even though I've forgotten how romance works). You should read it.
Also, I saw Friends With Kids and it made me never want to get married. It was such a sad movie. It was NOT a comedy! Maybe it would be funny to a teenager, but it's not funny to someone near that age bracket. Woof.
