sometimes, when i'm in a clothing rut, i don't feel very "me", and nothing in my closet seems to look good thrown together, i simply put something on without more than two seconds of thought and then look in the mirror and ask myself, would kate morrison wear this? if it's a maybe, i'll wear it. if it's a no, it gets thrown back into the pile of clothes on my bed where all the other discards lie. it's rarely an absolute YES because let's be honest, no one else does the kate morrison look like kate herself. she is and always will be perhaps my favorite style blogger, the one who always looks so put together, feminine but still polished with an edge, and effortless. HOW DO YOU DO IT, KATE?
when i put this on today, i said, shorts? really maggie? all black, really maggie? all black doesn't really happen around here. and it did today. i can't really say that i would see kate donning this entire outfit but hey, channeling the studded boots mixed with sweet collared top seemed appropriately kate. i got this shirt at forever21 and it was one of those shirts that caught my eye and didn't let go until it was in my shopping cart two weeks later.
i spent all day doing almost nothing. instead of finishing my paper about iHop, i went to iHop itself for research purposes. and that was the end of that. i spent four hours on a physics assignment that should have taken a quarter of that if not for youtube breaks, facebook stalking, and twitter sprees. it happens to all of us. i bought chai tea again even though i bought myself the actual tea mix so i could make it at home. i was going to get dressed and run a brush through my hair to take outfit photos, but at two pm i was still in my flannel pj set (LET'S REJOICE THAT FLANNEL SEASON HAS ARRIVED FOR A SECOND, SHALL WE?). sometimes, "nothing" days are the best kind of days. tomorrow i'll be productive. and i'm not just saying that. i have to be, because at that point it'll be straight up procrastination cramming.
i did write this blog post, however, and i did run a comb through my hair when i got english muffin crumbs in it. oops.
