Fashion Envy

This is me.

I'm the queen of the zip-up hoodie, t-shirt and jeans combo. I also (wish) I rocked a mean Pikachu backpack. You would be correct in assuming that my list of labels has not ever included and likely will never include fashionista.

Sure, I can be persuaded to dress up a little bit.
But it doesn't happen with much regularity.

You see, I'm hopelessly inept at styling myself. I have a grand total of three hairstyles: ponytail, barrette & low ponytail, and straight. Make-up? I can do the simplest of tasks but I wear make-up with even less frequency than I dress up. Accessorizing? I hardly ever think about it.

Sometimes I wish I were more capable of styling myself. And truthfully, I could be if I put my mind to it. I'd probably even be good at it.

Why don't I?

I've finally come to the realization that it's just not something I care enough about to prioritize. I'd much rather dress myself for a workout, play Minecraft with my Mom or read a book.

In fact, I'm totally okay with being the woman who'd rather have a Pikachu backpack than a designer purse.
