The New Neon
Let's face it: Summer is coming to an end. There are only so many more weeks that neon green will be acceptable, so I'm living it up (especially in a skirt purchased with tags on for $5 at Goodwill). For me—after 17 years of education—the "New Year" comes in the fall. And as a new season rolls in, I've been doing a lot of pondering about the 'selves' that we portray through blogging. Don't get me wrong, I try my best to be my honest self on this blog, and the outfits I posts are things I actually wear (to work, on the weekends, out, etc.)...But, there are lots of things I don't share. Like, I always leave late for the train. It's a game I play with myself to see if I can make it in the very least amount of time. Also, I put tinfoil on a cookie sheet before I bake anything, just so I don't have to wash the pan (sorry environmentalists). And I rarely eat anything that isn't takeout or from the freezer section, unless it's pasta. Bottom line, no matter how great we feel in a particular outfit, or on a particular day, no one is perfect, and that's something I'm trying to remind myself of as I propel into my mid-twenties and this "new year."
