I’ve been quite remiss in following up on my own linkup so I felt it apropos to commandeer an entire post and talk it up.
Last month flew by like Hermes on winged feet, and by the time the third Thursday rolled around, I barely had enough time and energy to concoct my own offering, let alone encourage others to do the same. This is not a self-castigation; this is simply an honest admission. Life happens, my friends, and I totally get that.
And I suppose it doesn’t help that our linkup only happens once a month, making it challenging to remember, much less prepare for.
Still, I believe it is the responsibility of the facilitator to promote and persuade, to coax and cajole, to remind and request.
So here I am, world, doing just that.
For the month of September, Selah and I celebrate the season of Back to School with this prompt: What was your best or worst mandatory high school read? If you can hearken back to high school, so be it, but I’ll be lenient and count college/university reads too.
So think on it, commit to it, then come back to us this Thursday with your answer and hopefully with an outfit that was inspired by it.
I may find my own linkup a challenge this time because of course this week had to coincide with Anne’s Go Grunge challenge over @ Spygirl. I don’t think I was ever assigned a “grunge” text, it being a genre/style that came after my time at school. I’ll concoct something, though. I promise.
But that’s Thursday. Today, I can be as derivative as I want, within the confines of professionalism and 50 Dresses, of course. I hope my outfit meets with your approval. It’s a bit more rock ‘n roll than grunge, but I did say the latter was a bit after my time so I can only work within the parameters of my experiences. And Pinterest did direct me to the whole floaty-dress-worn-with-moto-boots look when I searched “grunge fashion”. I’m calling this one a success.
Oh, and how about mad props to Aly’s room for hosting this week’s photo shoot? It was just way too warm outside for this week’s outfits, and I must say – I was a whole lot happier taking these pics in an air conditioned environment. The light ain’t too bad either, right? That’s thanks to some magic filters and Photoshop. Hallelujah, technology!
