Pearl Please


Okay, we’ve all seen this sweater floating around on tumblr, we heart it, pinterest, really any photo sharing site of emaciated girly pre-teens in bubble-gum pink bedrooms.

So, why would I choose this? Well, this sweater is actually backwards. I know, genius! I took that sweater I’ve been seeing everywhere and just wore it backwards. Does it even look like it’s backwards? I’ll leave that for you to decide, but with Fall proving that Winter will be here soon (or is that just the Christmas trees popping up prematurely basically everywhere) it’s time to think seriously about sweaters, as these will be thing you are most likely going to live in.

And if we’re going to wear sweaters, we might as well make them cute, right? It is amazing to me that I had seen this sweater forever and never though to wear it any other way than the way I had always seen it. It wasn’t until I saw one of my favorite bloggers of all time wearing it in a different way that I thought to switch it up.

This then made me introspective of different areas of my life (shocking, I know) and made me think “there’s not just one was to do everything.” Life and choices and actions are all done differently by everyone. Tell 10 people to do one thing and chances are they’ll each do it their own way. It’s amazing how the human mind works, and how creative each one of us is, even if we don’t think we’re crazy creative.

This winter I’ll be pushing myself to try different things and to think outside the box and to not worry too much about the “right” way of doing something, or how someone else is doing something, because at the end of the day, we’re all different.

And what a beautiful thing that is.
