It's Not Easy Being Green

I've always had this secret wish to be one of those really cool people who can pull off long flowy clothes, and long flowy hair. You know the type. They're on stage performing at poetry slams and sipping lactose-free lattes at a java place in the city. I, however, am socially anxious and get my caffeine fix at my local Starbucks. While I try to make it from A to B, I find myself modifying my appearance in attempts to channel my inner powerful, intelligent woman on stage - Suheir Hammads, Margaret Chos, Fiona Apples. Hence the floor-length skirt and hippie-wannabe hair. Since starting the blog, I've been more conscious of my appearance and whether or not I should spend a lot of time caring about how I look. So far I've come to the conclusion that you can look feminine, care about how you're perceived, and still be an intellectual - something I have to remind myself as I continue my education (for the next million years). /end philosophical spurt

Okay, to the outfit itself. I picked up this skirt during the madness of Value Village's last 50% off everything sale. It's a light-weight material, and has pockets (!) which is usually an easy deal for me. I really wish it was a few inches longer, and then I remembered being strangely tall is not your clothing's fault. The shirt is an old t-shirt from Gap that shrank in the wash, and my shoes make me feel like Robin Hood, which is always a good thing.

I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knuckle. Are Skyrim jokes still cool?

Enjoy your Saturday, blog amigos!
