Have you ever had that sudden bloody annoying moment when you were just minding your own business, daydreaming about eating the last slice of pizza; lying on the sofa watching a show on Discovery about catching crabs in a dramatic human interaction storm setting; or maybe you were just reading a book by a newly emerged feminist on “How drinking mojito with your friend is actually rape”, and then, a sudden memory hits you, the embarrassing memory of you doing something absolutely stupid and ridiculous a hundred years ago, accompanied by the deep feeling of utter shame and disappointment with yourself.
Since my life is riddled with embarrassing situations I’ve had this happen to me a few gazillion times already and it often occurs when I’m feeling the most proud of myself. As if my brain sensed my sudden boost of self-esteem and decided this much esteem can’t be good for the body, after all, too much self-esteem can result in happiness you know, so it sends a shameful memory as a little reminder: “You are actually very dumb and you should know it, k, bye!”
Just the other day I was happily editing some photos, thinking: “Yaaay, this outfit is awesome, everything is so pretty” and then I remembered a VERY stupid thing I did 7 fucking years ago and it just straight up ruined everything. And I’m not talking about crying on my front corridor dirty steps, comatose drunk, while talking to my ex on the phone and screaming out of my lungs “WHY DON’T YOU LOVE MEEEEEE?” kind of embarrassing memory. This is one of the few moments where my stupidity is at least a little bit justified by the high percentage of alcohol in my bloodstream and the fact that we’ve all had a few silly encounters with our ex boyfriends/girlfriends….hehe…right?…RIIIGHT? Hehe….?
Any who, I’m talking about something even more embarrassing and utterly idiotic, one that would make you consider joining a desolated tribe and hunting deer for the rest of your miserable shameful life.
Have you guys ever done something absolutely idiotic, then 5 years later remember it and feel absolutely idiotic about it? Do tell, my self-esteem needs boosting!
Cthulhu must have heard my prayers since the weather this week has been very chilly. The boyfriend isn’t living in his underwear anymore, which is a sure sign autumn is coming! I took this cold weather opportunity to add more layers and patterns into my day! ^_^ The striped sweater is from Choies and I ordered it for three reasons:
3. HEEEEAAAAAARTS!!! ♥ ♥ ♥ !!!
I ♥ hearts!
I also love clothes that have hidden little details, it adds a unique and mischievous charm and even if you dress it down and style a more basic outfit, you have the little detail to give you an upgrade.
I decided I’d wear this sweater more baggy than I would usually do. Since the sweater is somewhat loose on me I was afraid I might mess up the proportions and make the outfit too shapeless, but I think it turned out great, mostly because of the chunky shoes. They gave some length and a much needed slimness, and created an overall tidy look.
Hunching like a true model!
For the layering I chose to mix in my button down colorful dress. I unbuttoned the dress and wore it as a vest underneath the sweater. If you’d like to add a little extra to your autumn wardrobe, just layer a ruffled top, a thin vest, a cami dress under your sweaters, basically add anything that you think would look cool, and don’t be afraid to show your creation to the judgmental world!
To enhance even more the oversize look I paired everything with some loose boyfriend jeans and a long necklace.
For finish I decided to go over the top, so I also included a very fluffy leopard clutch I thrifted recently and the pervert beanie, again from Choies. So, what do you guys think? Likey? It’s dinner time so I’m off to eat me some meatballz now!!! @_@
