Weird's All I've Got

3:06 PM


I have tried getting photos of this outfit twice now, and both times they came out terrible. These were from the first batch where the lighting was weird, and the second batch came out all blurry. C'est la vie, non? Because that is real life, not everything is perfect.

Speaking of real life, I have been spending a lot of time just living in my head. Usually at the gym, I will pick at something that has been bothering me lately, and just run with it. Because what else are you going to do at the gym? Pay attention to what you are doing? Pfffft. Falling of off the elliptical trainer because you are so wrapped up in your own thoughts is completely acceptable, correct? You know that emotion most people are familiar with when something like that happens? Good ol' embarrassment? Apparently my brain stopped registering that one years ago.

It isn't limited to falling over and/or dropping things, oh no. I am also loud, over enthusiastic, blunt, and I have been known to burp in public, as well as bring baked goods to dive bars.  Most of my friends say it just adds to that whole "quirky" aesthetic, but when it comes down to it, I am not a perfect balance of 'charming and offensive',  I am just very weird. 

Instead of trying to control it (because lets face it, this is reality, and that is just not going to happen), I decided to embrace it a long time ago. No one is perfect, everyone is a little strange, I just have an extra dosage (or ten), but I am very thankful for the friends and family that I have that have to endure my shenanigans. Because lets face it, I am 29 years old, I am never going to 'grow out of it'. 

My boss: Have you ever met anyone like her in your life?

Intern: No. 

My boss: And you probably never will. 

Backwards compliment? Maybe. but in the words of Maurice Moss: I like being weird, weird's all I've got, that and my sweet style!"

Happy Friday!

  1. Weird's alright. I like being weird.

    I quite often get the backhanded compliment of "... but it suits your personality" or something like that, whenever I change my hair/wear something weird/say something inappropriate.

    I just smile and continue to be weird. I like it :)

  2. I like weird. I like you. You are one of the coolest weirdos I know in fact. Keep doing you, cause you are doing an awesome job at it!

  3. We all need to embrace our weirdness. We're individuals, not uniform dolls pumped out of a mold. I like your weirdness.

  4. weird is the new you are normal and the rest of the world is just boring. Have fun lol.

  5. It's important to be YOU! That's what everyone can appreciate. You captured your dress beautifully and I'm not being nice. I don't see any blurs!

  6. It is good to be weird. I am so weird that I have no friends or I scared them off since they all moved away from me. Glad you finally got your pictures of this dress! Sorry to hear it failed when you tried previously.

  7. haha, being weird is the best! and also, if i let myself think about it i'd probably think my photos are terrible most of the time, and i don't think these are! and i love your dress! xx

  8. I want to work somewhere where I can be myself and hear these things about myself too! lol.

  9. You're so dang pretty. And your style is so on point. As always, <3

  10. Awesome out fit! are an ORIGINAL!

  11. Splendid! You're so funny, too! Hope you had a fab weekend!

  12. Rock the weirdness girl! I, personally, think you're fab as is!

    P.S. I have a tendency to do the same thing when I'm working out. I literally berated myself a few days ago during a 45-minute cardio workout simply because I woke up late. I find that listening to music quells my desire to pick on myself and let my mind wander. :P



Talk nerdy to me.
