I did it. I bought jeggings. After years of judging, I actually bought a pair and my god are they the most comfortable pair of pants I’ve ever owned. I even tweeted my praise to @AEO this morning and got a pleasant response. Let’s face it, they’re awesome. (Not just saying this because I’m competing in Project Live Your Life.) (I actually do love AE.) (A lot.)
Having once been an advocate for dainty necklaces and unique charms, I have been converted to statement necklaces. I can’t get enough. I want to collect them. I want to own so many that my family becomes concerned and I end up on an episode of Hoarders. Do they still air that show? I hope so, because I need help.
What pieces are you excited to wear for spring? Do you have a current obsession that may result in an intervention? Let’s start a support group.
I played with patterns and textures today. The striped pattern is bold enough to pair with the smaller wool knit on the skirt. I balanced the black collar of the sweater with a large necklace, and kept my tights and shoes neutral. I was skeptical about my outfit as I was heading out the door, but the more I shamelessly looked at myself in the bathroom mirror, the more I liked it.
I am tired of wearing dark colors though. Come to me, spring!
That’s the domain I originally wanted to purchase for my blog: infinitely interesting.
Not only is it a lyric from one of my favorite Incubus songs, it describes what I strive to be. As a writer and comedy enthusiast, I look for different ways to be interesting. I’m constantly inspired by the women of YouTube who create such beautiful videos, whether it be a makeup tutorial, styling video, or short sketch. I am also enamored by female writers and anyone who shares who they are online. It’s a scary place.
I decided on the name “Morning Ink” thanks to Incubus’s album Morning View. It’s a great album and one I highly recommend for budding writers. It inspired quite a few stories in my youth. I decided on “Ink” because I’m a writer.
I’ve had my eye on this necklace since Ingrid Nilsen a.k.a MissGlamorazzi on YouTube debuted it in her Baublebar collection. Even though it was released months ago, my boyfriend still surprised me with it on Christmas. It’s a new treasure.
I start my new job tomorrow! I’m extremely nervous, but also excited. Wish me luck!
