Outfit of the Day: 20 Shades of Poorly Planned Pink

You know how I said that I tend to dress like crap when I’m not careful? Well, this is an example of me dressing poorly.

And also standing poorly.

And also smiling poorly (to wit: not smiling at all).

And also I am wearing a super cute pink flower in my hair and you can’t see it in either picture.

But now that I’m looking at the picture, the skirt hangs awkwardly on me, and the belt would look better if it was wider (I think), and the shoes are NOT GOOD. Holy hot pink, Batman. Does not match at all. And my lips don’t blend well either. There’s like 20 shades of poorly planned pink going on here, and it needs to stop.

So this is pretty much a fail, all the way around. I at least like the way my eye turned out, though!

I’ve gotten some super awesome advice, though, and I’d love to hear any tip you might have for me, makeup or clothes or hair wise! I’m seriously struggling, y’all.

Also, someone needs to teach me how to smile….

Outfit of the Day: Hello, Sweetie

Item one: for the love of mercy, someone teach me how to take pictures. All I hear is “use natural light!” but as you can see…I CANNOT TAKE A PICTURE THAT MAKES ME LOOK LIKE A DECENT HUMAN. So…yes.

I was in a big hurry, so scrunched waves it was for the day. Everything else I just sort of grabbed. I had a yellow belt to match my headband, but the stupid thing has a broken clasp, so my sister let me borrow her beloved Doctor Who belt (with a seatbelt buckle clasp!). I put it on and she stared at me for a minute before going “OH MY GOD YOU’RE RIVER SONG.”

So there we are.

Outfit of the Day: I Dress Like a Kindergartener and a Grandma at the Same Time

I have a really bad habit of dressing like crap. Like, I just…I don’t know. It’s almost the end of the school year and I’ve practically given up on life. So I’m using this blog to motivate myself. Effective? Hopefully. I want to look nice. And look my age. But unfortunately, this is definitely not a look for a grown up. Dammit. I need to work on that.

You’d think that combining saddle shoes and a dress Rachel Berry wore on the first season of Glee would be a good indicator that I’m not dressing my age…
