Hello my lovelies! How has your week been going? Mine's been going pretty great, been relaxing alot, and really expanding my horizons as far as blogs go. I never knew there were so many amazing blogs out there. Sometimes it makes me feel insignificant, like I'm just one lonely little blog in a gigantic universe of bloggers. But other times it makes me feel really awesome, like I'm part of this huge blogging family, all striving for creativity and other awesomeness.
Psh, yeah, I know, weird face in this picture. Who knows what I was thinking about just then?
You might also be noticing that I tend to wear skinny jeans alot. Well, I'm kind of making up for all the lost time, because before the beginning of this year I NEVER wore skinny jeans. I was adamant in my opinion that they were uncomfortable, too tight, and made my legs look fat.
I have since then, been converted. I have realized a) that my legs aren't fat, simply muscular, and I have to deal with it, b) That skinny jeans are extremely comfortable once you break them in, and c) that skinny jeans go with almost anything, and therefore, are a style must-have.
I used to associate skinny jeans with preppiness. I would look in disgust upon my arch-nemisi (plural of nemesis?), with their fried straight hair, loads of eyeliner, skinny jeans, converse, and hollister\aero\abercrombie shirts. They represented everything I didn't like about modern American culture. They didn't choose those clothes because they liked them, they chose them because everyone else did. They seemed so fake to me. I avoided skinny jeans because I didn't want to succomb to the fakeness like they did, wallowing in their lake of fake.
But now, I wear skinny jeans proudly, knowing that the jeans don't make me, I make the jeans! They are only as fake and cliche as the person who is wearing them, and since I refuse to be that person, they are unique, stylish, and awesome.
I love them
Oh. And the shirt is from TJ Maxx and the jeans are from Kohls.
Yeah, I get carried away sometimes. But I feel strongly about them jeans!
And the fakeness of some parts of modern society. What can I say?
It's a defense mechanism that comes from growing up in the deep south, wear fake is almost as common as fried chicken and sweet tea. Everywhere you look there are fake tans, fake blondes, fake botoxed faces, fake teeth, fake smiles.
My dream is to find a little town somewhere where some people are actually naturally pale an don't care, where people smile with crooked teeth, and everybody is just cool with the hair color God gave them. A little gem of genuineness among faux diamonds, a fruit loop among cheerios.

I just love that. Isn't it amazing how much fruit loops can teach you about life? Like don't be afraid to stand out, be different from the norm, to throw away the world's little rule book of what you should and shouldn't be.
