On Friday, I went back to my girly ways in order to get through the day. I believe that my clothes are a direct representations of my feelings- or, at least, where I'm trying to be at with my feelings- during a certain time frame. I'm the type of girl who will always dress up during finals week in an attempt to fail stylishly (though, let's be honest, I always end up doing well on finals). The week before finals, however, you can tell how drowned in my misery I am by how gym rat-looking my OOTD is.
Since Fridays are my short days and I get out before 11 a.m., my outfit called for a celebration! Pastel colors kept my spirit warm while my physical self was freezing its bottom off from the unexpectedly cold Las Cruces weather. I'm a huge advocate of switching up color choices and adapting them to the season they least match in theory. An eternally black palette keeps me forever grounded in the winter mindset, whereas soft pinks and grays allow me to drift back to summer days and the feel of sunshine on my arms.
I can't wait for spring and summer to be here again.... so then I can defy the rules and wear all of the dark colors, all of the time.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you're all keeping warm :)
