Outfit Post: Olive and Gold

I haven't made any close friends yet since moving out to Ohio, so I find myself making my husband (my best friend) do things with me that normally I would only subject a girl friend to...like, I made him sit at my computer last night and listen and watch as I clicked through all the fashion blogs I read and give him my own synopsis of the blogger's style. He must love me because he braved the whole episode with a smile and even conjured up an opinion or two when I pressed him for one. I love my best friend so much!

Going through all of my favorite fashion blogs with my husband, and hearing his opinions, inspired me to create an outfit today that was fun, practical, and very me, regardless of what is fashionable or trendy. So often I find myself copying looks instead of just doing my own thing, because I'm worried that my own thing isn't quite as cool as what I can just copy from someone else who is already established as "cool." I seriously need to stop being a copycat and just be myself.
