"WHY DON'T YOU DRESS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE" | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

"WHY DON'T YOU DRESS LIKE EVERYONE ELSE" | AN OUTFIT OF THE DAY

You might be a little confused by the title.  So was I at first, when I was approached by my teacher with the question, "why don't you dress like everyone else?".  At first, I didn't know how to take that.  Was it a compliment?  Or was it an insult?  Well, being the straightforward person that I am, simply asked.  My teachers response was, "it was a compliment."  

I know that I don't always dress like the other girls at my school, and though sometimes I do, I always take inspiration from what I see in other blogs, magazines, and street style in general.  The reason that I don't dress like a duplicate copy of every other eighteen year old girl is merely because it bores me.  Fashion is not supposed to be boring, it's supposed to be LOUD and LIVELY.

So today's OOTD is just that: expressive, fun, and ME!
