Doubling down. I decided to try to redeem myself and do some more dark outfits and actually be proud of wearing them, instead of cowering like a weakling. So, there. Heh. I got my second wind over the weekend, as it was my first weekend off in a really long time. I finished the required reading for my five exam subjects. Hundreds of pages of notes will be distilled into exam outlines and then I'll just be taking practice exams during the week. Hence, my weekends are mine all mine. Super excited, you guys! :D
Man, I totally took the weekend for granted. Most people work just weekdays or maybe just one weekend on alternating weeks or whatever, but I don't know of many people who carry a 9-5 or 10-6 or even 10-8 schedule for five days a week and then put in another 8 hours over the weekend. o_O O_o That was basically my life for almost 9 months. So, yeah. It felt weird not having to wake up early.
I took the time to make french toast. I watched Netflix. I got dressed with confidence (this time) and set out to get some fresh air and enjoy the day. We went out of our way to go to a coffee shop that's pretty far from us, but it was worth it for the long walk in the sunshine (for as long as it lasted). It ended up raining a bit later in the day, but we managed to get to and from our destination unscathed. :D
I really like the layering I did here. All of the pieces are lightweight, so I could pile them on without looking bulky. I started with the black high low top for the black panel in the back, then I layered the white asymmetrical dress underneath for the slash of white. I wore the high waisted leggings over the dress which I had folded up to my waist to keep my mid-section looking smooth(ish). I got the bright idea to layer a long sleeved crop top over it all so I wouldn't have exposed arms from the sleeveless top and dress underneath. The result is a lot of shapes and a look that is different from every angle.
Of course, I got stared at up and down and all around, but I just refracted all the hater rays. >:D Haha.
I was in such a good mood that nothing and no one could possibly f*ck up my day. I was beamin'. <3
