Good evening, kids! I almost forgot that I was going to blog tonight! Apparently, I have already adjusted to the lazy life all over again. But not so fast! I did get dressed and take pictures this morning. And in the end, I did indeed recall my intentions to document it all right here. So yay.
At this point, the hardest part is coming up with a title. I am like drowning in a plethora of good music, y’all. In addition to a handful of mix CDS (mix CDs make my life) I picked up the new CAKE album and someone finally hooked me up with the latest Kanye. Awesomeness. I’ve also got my hand in some music-related stuff for the new blog of which you’ll find out about soon enough. It’s all amazing. I find myself changing CDs out at every stoplight. Jotting down lyrics in my Blackberry. I’m just having a regular musical renaissance. Feeling very inspired after months of being bogged down in Christmas music and crap. And I love it. Actually, I think my whole life is starting to feel a little inspired again. And I love that too.
So anyway. What’s new with all of you guys? What are you listening to? What’s inspiring you these days? I want to know all about it.
You know who inspires me a lot? Sara of Orchids in Buttonholes. I feel like every time I catch up on her blog I find new and cute ideas, particularly when it comes to shirt dresses. She just knows how to make them work. So then every time I read up, I get inspired to try my hand at the only one I own, which is this one.
Previous rounds with this shirt dress did not fare so well, but I’m pretty pleased with today’s rendition. I have to tell you guys, it’s still really weird getting dressed every day post-project. I no longer really have a goal in mind, so I’m always torn between trying really hard and …not. I still have the mentality of wanting to remix and make new looks. Like, I have a guilt complex when I repeat stuff. But I also feel relieved by the lack of pressure. Like, what bitches? I just put together 365 different outfits, and now I’m just going to throw crap together and call it good. What? But really, I still care about how I look coming and going. That’s never going to go away. So right now, I’m trying to form new habits. I’m making it a goal to make at least a couple of new outfits each week while also busting out and enjoying the old favorites. I think that’s balance that I’m striving for.
So anyway. That’s my story right now. I’m going to go to bed now, but I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I’ll be back Sunday with some seriously exciting stuff. Check it.
