After a week of badassery, I guess it’s only fitting I give you more color and feminine fun.
I swear, I fear my students think me schizophrenic with my weekly outfits, eh?
But it’s really all Anne’s fault. Last week was Go Grunge and this week is Happy Hibiscus; think she did that juxtaposition on purpose?
No matter, you all know I’m a slave to routine and challenges and I shall not stray from my purpose, so hibiscus it is.
Of course, not being a plant person as well as being infamous for killing all things vegetative, I had to Google “hibiscus” and then almost threw up my hands in despair when I saw it was that ubiquitous Hawaiian flower that surfers and VW beetles proudly call their own. Not being of that ilk, I knew I didn’t have a single thing in my closet but I also knew I was only on Day 36 of my Spending Fast – DAY 36! ARGH! – so I couldn’t exactly buy hibiscus products.
Enter creative interpretation and more remixing fun. This is a floral print dress. Hibiscuses are flowers. Therefore I am calling this dress hibiscus-esque and considering myself Pick-me-up challenge compliant. (Now we all know why I never joined debate.)
Anyhoozle, more shouts out to Aly’s bedroom. It is once again hosting this week’s photo shoot but as of this writing, the weather is turning cooler so perhaps we’ll be back to natural light and outdoor shots next week. Would you mind if I kept it indoors, though? Having the indoor option makes me feel less pressured and anxious about blogging in inclement weather, but I’d rather not post at all than give you shoddy work. Lemme know, k?
