So I wore this outfit to school for teaching and to do some studying at a nearby coffee shop. It was a really comfortable outfit, and perfect for the occasion! I love the arm warmers with the cape because it means I can wear short sleeves underneath and my arms won't freeze. I've been noticing people reacting differently to me since I've upped my style. Mostly I get really positive reactions; people will smile at me more often or engage me in conversation. Sometimes I'll feel like someone is looking at me and I'll look up and they are! But today I had a really bad experience. There were these two really nasty girls in the hallway (wearing what can only be described as a very small step up from pajamas) and they were talking about me really loudly. One said "Look, look, look, oh my god." The other one: "I know, look at that, she's trying way too hard, like get over yourself!" I gave them a really mean look and just kept walking. Now that it's over, I kind of wish I had said something. They were so rude, and why should I "get over myself"? I've been "over myself" for my whole life, and that hasn't really worked for me... I finally feel good about myself, and now people are telling me to get over myself?! In fact I'm trying to get over being over myself! I don't really care what other people think. Especially haters. I think that those girls probably have their own insecurities, so I am not going to take what they said to heart. I feel great and I am going to continue to dress well regardless. I wonder if they would have said the same things if I'd been skinny though... Anyways, without any further ado, here is my outfit. I hope you like it. Please let me know what you think! I'd love some positive energy to counteract the negative!
