just a better place to die

Vintage sweater and jeans and necklace, thrifted GAP striped shirt, Nine West sneakers c/o brand.
Quick outfit of me on Sunday. Worst weekend ever, super stressful week, just barreling through it on a lot of empty prayers and screams into my pillow. Bandaids on my fingers because these jeans, while they actually fit me, have a weird zipper and it takes nothing less than 20 minutes to try to get them on properly. They look so good on I can't help myself though. Oh well. 

Been swamped with emails re: state of fashion blogging, too. Haven't gotten back to any of them but I will, slowly. I have a lot on my plate right now but since it's year of the Hustle I will try my hardest. Been trying to not let the stress get to me so been burying myself in self care mantras. I like this one a lot:

Only hang around people that are positive and make you feel good. Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good, kick them to the curb. And the earlier you start in your life the better. The minute anybody makes you feel weird and non-included or not supported, you know, either beat it or tell them to beat it.” -- Amy Poehler. 

Self-care is so important. Love yourself you guys.

I love this quote from Amy Poehler. I read one by Tina Fey once about young girls who are bummed that boys don't seem interested in them-- she said something along the lines of, let them give shitty Valentine's presents to other girls and learn to kiss properly on other girls, and then you move in on them when they're fully formed.

Tell me about it with the self help mantras, my favorite recently is "dont let the thoughts of others consume you" which is only effective with drip marks coming off of the last two words. Use your imagination.

I just discovered your blog after having read you at rookiemag for months. I'm in love with everything about you: your hair, your personality, your feminism, your sense of humor, your writing, your opinions. I am so happy that there are young girls like you (I'm 24 already, so old omigoshzbgjzg), it makes me feel better about the future! :D

Ugh, if only helping myself was so easy. I've recently been quite stressed out and had my first panic attack... which, was horrible. I really hope it doesn't get to that point for you. Your outfit looks cute :)

Kailey said...

Ahh I am so sorry to hear about how stressed out you have been lately! :( I sincerely hope everything sorts itself out for you <33

Meanwhile, the extra time taken to get into those jeans was definitely worth you - you look incredible!
