Some of you seem to be under a false impression that I'm cool. I'm not.
...but I'm kind of trying to be.
So when I sheepishly started my Style board on Pinterest I kind of hoped nobody would notice. But then my good (real life) friend Lauren saw that I pinned this adorable outfit and told me I should--ahem--actually try and wear some of the things I had been pinning.
While I don't actually own anything that I've been pinning (I'm not cool, remember?) I did accept Lauren's challenge to dress outside my comfort zone one day each week and blog about it.
Thus, the birth of a new weekly series here that I have geniusly titled: Getting Dressed.
(So original, I know.)
And so, I present you with...
Obviously it'll be a
For instance, see that side pony tail hiding inside the hood? Right on the edge of my comfort zone.
Not to mention the fact that my hair isn't neatly pulled back so it's completely out of my face. I hate having hair in my face.
But I'll tell you what, spending more than five minutes picking out what I was going to wear this morning (and actually brushing and thinking about how to do my hair) was waaaaay outside my comfort zone. Way way outside.
So far outside it that Olivia didn't know what to do with herself while I spent ten minutes in the bathroom trying to make the side ponytail go from, "She totally doesn't know what she's doing" to "She rocks the side ponytail." I'm not sure I really made it, but I did try.
And even though I settled on something that was right on the edge of my comfort zone instead of actually outside it, I did spend at least 15-20 minutes in my room picking through clothes and trying different things on. I think--honestly--the last time I did that was for my sister-in-law's wedding back in December. Fo reals.
So, there you have it. Little old me in a (slightly) cooler outfit than usual.
So cool, in fact, that when I explained this whole thing to my good friend who took the picture (Thanks again!) she replied, "I totally noticed!" Haha. Not sure if that's good or bad...
