I know what some of you guys may be thinking, “Hey she’s still alive! She didn’t get wiped off existence!” To further elaborate on that, I am still alive and yes I still exist. I’ll tell you guys what, 10th grade has sure been a step up from 9th and the pressure has been real. I’ve had so much work recently to try and focus on and it’s been difficult to try and create posts while keeping up my grades. I hit my second semester of 10th grade and time is flying by for me. It feels like just yesterday I was planning my outfit for the first day of school! I totally see what adults mean by saying that us teenagers grow up so fast. I even feel as if I’m growing up too fast, I really wish I could stop time and enjoy the now a bit better.
So to start off my first post in a good while I thought there would be no way better than with an Inspiration Monday! I’ve decided to use a picture of rust because I found this picture while doing some chemistry homework (we’re learning about chemical properties, such as oxidation). I thought the picture had this cool texture to it and I thought it would be fun to play around with metallic colors some more. Some of my favorite pieces would have to be the sneakers because they look absolutely stylish and you can style it in so many different ways! I also love the purse because of how well the texture of it matches the picture given.
Hopefully I will be able to start getting more posts in now that I don’t have an essay due a week because of my lit class, but I’m not complaining. I will confess to that class being my favorite class I’ve ever had and my lit teacher being the best teacher I ever had.
Time flies when you are having fun…NOT! Finally back to school today after two weeks of recess due to a winter storm and winter break. I have to admit it felt good to be able to go back to school today and see my friends. What is not cool is the teachers piling on the homework to try and catch us up due to all the days missed. Luckily I anticipated the teachers’ frenzy and used the days that I was out of school to get ahead with my blog posts. Yay! This is my 50th post in a row and I didn’t want to miss it. One of my goals when I started the blog was to write sixty days in a row. Ten more days and I should be able to accomplish it.
My inspiration for this outfit was this cute zebra plate my mom pinned to one of her decoration boards. I liked the shades of blue used and the modern overall feeling of the plate. As I have mentioned before inspiration can come to you from pretty much anywhere, even a plate. 🙂 I tried to use different shades of blue to capture the hues of the plate. I felt I needed to work with a zebra pattern so I used a more modern version of the pattern with the top. My vision of modern also included a mix of styles in the outfit, grunge, preppy, modern and punk. Sometimes eclectic outfits like this one turn out to be even more special because they are extremely unusual and unique.
