NO, you can’t leave me. What will I do? I…I just can’t… no I refuse to give up on you. I refuse to give up on me. I refuse to give up on US! No one can ever replace you, and I don’t want anyone to replace you. We have been through so much, and now you have to leave me. ::kicks stuff Scooby:: NO, I will not let this happen, and I will not let you go. ::runs to sob into pillow::
Pretty dramatic, huh. Well, this is how I have felt lately over a pair of nude colored shoes that I own. YES, shoes. A cute pair of
nude platform shoes. When I say “nude,” I do not mean the color beige. I actually mean nude as in my skin tone nude. Anywho, I have had these shoes for a while now it has come to that time where I have to let them go. See the little black tips on the bottom of the heels have broken off. I don’t know when, how, or why this happened, but the little black tips are gone, and now I am stuck here reminiscing over what was, and what could have been.
I only own one pair of brown pumps, so it is hard for me to let go. I really want to take the shoes to go get fixed, but I wonder if that is a waste of money. Maybe, I could just use that money and go get a pair of brand new shoes. I do love a pair of brand new shoes, however, I really like these shoes, and I had them for some time, so I know that I will not be able to find another shoe like them. Whhhhhy do the good shoes have to go so earlier?
I don’t know where I would wear this, but I think it looks cool. Even though I have the sniffles, I sort of felt rocker chic today.
The weather in Florida can get really funny sometimes. Within one day the weather can change from a cold hard freeze to a hot summer’s breeze. I definitely had my share of times where I bundled up for the morning chill only to end up burning up in the afternoon heat.
When I know that I am in for one of those funky weather days, I try to avoid wearing heavy clothing underneath my jackets. I try to keep it light and simple like the shirt seen in the photos.
Payless Shoes, Express tights, Jcpenney’s shirt, shorts, and scarf.
If you live in an area like mine, the best thing you can do is switch between light and heavy clothing when layering your outfits. It gives you room to strip down into something more comfortable when the temperatures start to rise.
Thanks for reading.
I was having a conversation with a friend of mine the other day, and she mentioned that she had a couple of pairs of brightly colored skinny jeans that she did not plan on wearing anymore. I told her that I understood where she was coming from because if I were to see her in brightly colored skinny jeans this fall, then she would get the complete side eye from me (80% joking, 20% serious). She asked where she could wear these pants again and I told her at a 90’s party, maybe. *Kanye shrugs *
This conversation is the foundation for today’s post. When it comes to trends I am extremely cautious about what I purchase from the store. I must admit the colorful skinny jean trend was cute, and I have seen some girls, and guys, pull this look off wonderfully. However, I knew that I was not in love with colorful skinny jeans, and if I were to purchase a pair I would only wear the jeans for this summer. Knowing this about myself, I decided to not partake in the colorful skinny jean trend.
When it comes to being a savvy consumer, you have to take the time to evaluate your personal taste. Before you purchase the next latest trend take the time to think about whether or not you are going to wear this item next year or not. If you will, then buy it. If you will not, then bypass, or purchase that item for really, really, cheap. I already know that I am going to be buying up high waisted jeans and shorts because I love that trend. It is so 70’s chic and anything that can prevent muffin top is an ok with me, in addtion, I know that high waisted pants will be hard to come by once this trend fades.
Just because something is the latest trend that does not mean that you have to fill up your entire closet with that trend. Buy a few items and save your money on items that you are in love with because lets be honest, unless you are in the fashion industry, no one really cares about whether or not you are following the latest trends. Heck, majority of society are not even aware of what the latest trends are, so be you.
