The (excessively sized) package(s) I ordered from Forever 21 (and GoJane) came in on Monday and I've just been having a blasty blast with all my new clothes! I ordered quite a few things out of my comfort zone, and my package included lots of studs, collared shirts, a pair of high-heeled boots, and a panama hat (...also lots of polka dots but those have always been in my comfort zone)! It's actually been really fun to try out clothing that I also find a little intimidating.
I am seriously in total, complete love with this hat from GoJane! It is so spectacular and adorable, and there is a cute brown bow on the rim. I still am a little nervous to wear it around town, though. The Soo is not the trendiest of cities and I don't think it will be able to handle me in this hat hahaha!
I actually felt a little menswear-inspired in this outfit, which is new for me. And I suppose a little strange since it's not even all that menswear-oriented. I guess I'm just too used to dresses, lace, and florals! This hat paired with these boots is a huge step for me :P
ALSO, today I had a bit of a traumatic event, friends. I was casually driving away from the school after my morning class, when I looked in my rearview mirror and noticed a HUGE hole in my rear windshield! The whole of my windshield was SHATTERED and kept breaking away more and more! I'll be honest with you folks, I have had a few vehicular incidents in my day. Enough traumatic events that when I got my new car this summer, I was actually pretty nervous to drive it! So when I noticed this huge issue in my rearview, I had a bit of a major meltdown. The day progressed with me publicly sobbing a few times, but luckily my repair shop is a team of heroes who had it all sorted out for me in no time! Apparently this kind of thing occasionally happens to tempered windshields in very cold weather. Not the greatest news, but it was a relief to hear it wasn't my fault. If I didn't already hate it, this event has made my relationship with the cold all the more strained, I'm tellin ya!
Anyway I'm nice and safe at home now, curled up in a blanket in bed and sipping on some delicious veggie soup. I had plans to clean my room but I think I'll just watch Downton Abbey until it's time for me to go to work :)
