When I shot this outfit, it was the second time I was wearing it. The first time I had it on Mary complimented it so much I figured it wouldn't hurt to put the pieces together again. Flattery can go a long way with me…but I thought it was funny that Mary liked this look so much when the combo of t-shirt, cozy cardigan, and black jeans wasn't a thought-out situation. I think what makes the outfit just a step above simple is that the shirt is full of holes (I've had people refer to it as a "shotgun tee" before). I'm not going to lie, it's one of the most expensive t-shirts I've ever bought but I love it and wear it all the time - regardless of the confusion it causes. You want to know what's making me confused these days? All the hype for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
I’ll say it: I read the first book. Only because I was curious and some friends told me that it’s hard not to get hooked on the story. My opinion about the novel goes against the grain. It was painful for me to get through – not because of the risqué content – but because I didn’t like the writing and felt that the voices (words they used, the way they spoke) given to the main characters just seemed soooo fake and uncomfortable. “Oh my.” If I never read that phrase again I’ll be happy. The thought of watching the writing come to life on the screen is enough to make me cringe and want to crawl out of my skin…so the fact that this entire week has been a celebration of anticipation for the film on The Today Show (my morning must-watch) has made me roll my eyes a little too much. And it releases on Valentines Day – which makes me frown. But I get it. I get why women are into it and what the excitement is about (how are they going to show such taboo content in a movie omggg?!). I’m just over hearing about it. And more interested in The Grammy Awards this Sunday.
