If you follow me on Instagram, you know that for the past few days, I've been on a
magic carpet ride.
That's right folks -
a DIY rug skirt.
ok. Possibly (read: definitely) not.
Though that would be even more fantastic than the current state of affairs.
Which actually means a lot - considering that the current state of affairs is pretty damn fantastic.
I in no way jest when I say that I initially believed that this skirt was a bathroom rug.
Nestled cozily in between a stack of candles and rustic notebooks on an old wooden desk, how was I to know otherwise?
Only after some much-needed fabric fondling did I realize my mistake.
What a glorious little lightbulb began to glow.
The rising action to this story of shag consists of an incredibly awkward moment;
that 20 seconds or so after which I initially mentioned to my colleagues that I may or may not be obsessively in love with the strange little skirt in the corner.
Everyone got real quiet, and more than a couple painfully unconvincing smiles were all-too-quickly faked.
Truth be told, I didn’t expect this reaction at all.
In fact, for all the self-depreciating quips that I make, I never really feel inside that the decisions I make when dressing are actually weird. They feel so natural, that only when I’m checked by the awkward responses of others, do I realize that I've "erred".
And every time I’m forced to ask myself: Do I care?

In Summation: you’ll be happy to hear that the “no” is slowly drowning out the “yes”.
