It isn’t easy being green–in fact, for me, it’s pretty difficult and I’m sure I’m the lamest participant this week on What to Wear. But you know, that’s okay, because I love my outfit. Even if it isn’t the greenest of the green!
I’m really not one for celebrating this holiday. I don’t like beer and I don’t like Irish food. I do however like wearing green when I have pink hair. It’s a weird thing but when I dyed my hair completely pink in college, I had this moment of freaking out about what to match it with. At the time I had this really comfortable military green long sleeve thermal with owl print on it that I loved and I was so sad that it wouldn’t match my hair. Then this light bulb clicked in my head and I realized that *gasp* I can wear whatever I want to, color of my hear be damned. I know, it’s a silly epiphany, but that’s what college is about. Right? Anyway…
I used Sarah’s, from SillyGrrl, collage to make that one and man I love her templates. So easy peasey, and I was even using them on Gimp! Yay for cross compatibility! Oh and that face I’m making on the right photo? That’s the face I make when David and I get busted taking pictures by my little old lady neighbor. Awkward… Also, the ridiculous pose on the left is what happens when David says “well, any other poses you want to do?” Speaking of David (does this post feel rushed yet? Because I feel absolutely scatterbrained writing it), I got him to pose for a few photos as well, since he ended up decked out in green too!
Lesson learned–next time I want to feature one of David’s outfits on the blog, ask him where his clothing came from, I guess. I only know where the shirt is from because I picked it out. I love when he wears that shirt. He has a matching eggplant sweater that looks fabulous with it, and the first time he wore them together to work Kels (who he works with because, you know, small world) was like “Marci dressed you today, didn’t she?”
Well be sure to check out the rest of the fabulous ladies who are participating in What to Wear! I’ve already seen some and trust me when I say you’ll be green with envy!
