Express has been killing it lately with their sweater options, and I know I rant and rave about them all the time, but how could I not?! They have the best sales, also! I wore this when it was warmer out (not Chiberia:)), and it paired nicely with these levi jeans. These are also my go to jeans as i’m sure you guys have seen me in them dozens of time! They are probably my most favorite out of all my light wash pairs. They don’t stretch out after you wear them so they don’t get saggy which is hard to find. A must have!
We almost made it to February and I cannot WAIT for warmer weather. Who thought I would ever say that?! Not me!! I think it’s the blogger in me wanting to be outside for more than 2 minutes snapping pictures real quick just so I can get back into warmth haha! There are also a lot of things coming up this summer that I am excited for! School for us gets out June 1st which is so early, but i’m not complaining! That gives us all of June, and all of July before we go back early August.
I know there has been a lot going around about bloggers putting up fake fronts because you only see the best on Instagram or someones blog, because who wants to really show their worst? So i’m going to let you in on a little something to show you my life is not perfect, even thought i’m sure everyone already knows that. If you saw my Instagram post from Monday, you know that I had an emotional day, and it has really been an emotional week (yes, I know it’s only Wednesday). Some tensions have been rising with family, and I found out some horrible news about two of my coworkers. I’m not going to get into detail because i’m not going to put too much information on blast here, but just know that it’s enough to push me over the edge after piling and piling up – and i’m not that easy to push over. So on Monday after school I went over to my parents and just vented and cried to them for a good while. I am the type of person who bottles up their emotions and then just explodes… and it happened, KABOOM!
The good that came out of that is that it made my relationships stronger with my parents (even thought that’s hard to top!), and a few of my friends texted me to see what was going on, which shows who really cares about me to make sure everything was alright off of one Instagram caption. My one friend Krista even texted my fiance to give me a hug and be nice to me that night (how sweet is she?!?!?!). It’s things like that to make my heart explode with happiness in dark times and upset days like the one I was having.
I’m also the type of person who has thin skin, and the smallest things people say could bother me. An example was one time I posted a picture of myself (and this was not too long ago) wearing a FAUX fur vest. I didn’t put the word FAUX in my caption because it wasn’t making my play on words work (which comes from my sarcastic personality). This girl commented on it saying she can’t support people who wear fur and kill animals and started hash tagging to stop animal cruelty and all of these things. I got so flustered and in a tizzy, and I wasn’t even wearing real fur!! I was so nervous everyone would think I was an animal killer and unfollow me, or no longer support me, and that my blogging life would be dampened. BUT, my lesson learned from that is that I apparently have to be more careful with my words because you can never know who will take them out of context. That, and I need to grow thicker skin.
Well, sorry for the long post, but I love going into detail and explaining everything so you can know a little more about me instead of me just always giving out outfit details. I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your week!
