It’s Marvelous Monday, everybody! This is a weekly blog challenge between myself and four other fabulous fatshion bloggers. Make sure to go check out their outfits today, too! Links are at the bottom of the post.
Our philosophy: Monday is nobody’s favorite day of the week, but maybe its terrible reputation is a little undeserved. We’re on a mission to make ours (and hopefully yours) a little less awful by dressing marvelously!
This week’s theme: Inspired by Artwork
I kind of did this one backwards–when I got dressed, I forgot about Marvelous Monday. But I really liked my outfit, so instead of changing I decided to find artwork to match my outfit. Without further ado, the painting:
And, my outfit:
I thought the painting was appropriate inspiration as it includes both the same pattern of red and white stripes and the nautical theme. I really like this sweater, although I am less of a fan of the fact that my legs really haven’t seen much of the sun in many, many months!
Yesterday was my 22nd birthday, and what I thought was going to be a quiet day turned into quite a nice small party when some of my friends surprised me with a barbecue and a trip to the beach.
I guess I should have some sort of introspective post evaluating the year, but I’ll just say that 21 was a very interesting year. A lot happened. I returned to school, for one, which also for me meant coming back to Germany.
I also traveled quite a bit, both within the US and Germany, and to several other countries. I met some new friends, reconnected with some old ones, and drifted apart from some other friends. I guess that last one is inevitable.
22 is off to a great start so far, and I’m hoping it continues this way! I know it’ll be a difficult and stressful year with a lot of life changes, but hopefully it’ll all turn out okay.
Funnily enough, I wasn’t the only Marvelous Monday blogger celebrating a birthday yesterday; make sure you wish Cheri a happy birthday, too!
