I know what you’re thinking right now, if you’ve been coming to my blog for a long time: “An outfit post? About time!”
Thank you for your patience. I haven’t posted an outfit since January. I don’t know how often these posts will show up, but I figure every so often they’ll pop up on my blog.

There is a thing that I adore about wearing skirts (and ones that are knee length and longer). They make me feel girly, and most of you know that I appreciate modesty a lot! They are really fun.

I noticed that this outfit blends in well with the background choice. I think it is funny, because in reality, I don’t blend in well with others one bit. I’ve always been called “weird” and “unique” and “odd” and “different” since I was a very young child, not just because of what I wear, but because of how I act or the way I think. When I was younger it hurt when people would mock me, but once I got to about the age of 10, I actually appreciated it and embraced it a lot. It became fun for me to be different than the people around me. I liked being me. I think today too many people who are young are so set on being “in” with their peers and the trends, that they miss out on creating individuality in themselves. They blend in with people around them or try too hard to look like someone they admire in entertainment industries. I have always been fond of people who stand out and who are noticeably different than others through their personality.

Outfit Details:
Shoes: Modcloth
Necklace: c/o Gigi (which their site is gone now, so I don’t know what happened to them)
Shirt: Delias (so 8 years ago)
Skirt: Vintage Urban Renewal
Headband (can’t really see it): a friend gave it to me
Flower Hairclip: c/o Lila-Jo
