i'm supposed to be doing something else right now but since i do like to indulge in procrastination from time to time, i am blogging instead. i can assure you this activity is far more pleasant than what i am actually supposed to do. and you are the happy winners of my procrastination because you get to see what i was wearing today. let me start by telling you what i am not wearing, and that is: heart prints, the color red, sexy lingerie, lipstick or fancy jewelry. valentine's day is not something i celebrate and i would prefer not to be dragged in everybody else's red hearted madness. don't get me wrong, i am not against the idea behind this day, i just don't like imported holidays and the consumerism it entangles. anyhow, we've had a pretty clouded sky throughout the day and some of the colors didn't quite come through as i wished in the pictures. for example, my dress turned out grey when it's instead a pale green. i went again for a play on textures and combining something delicate and flowy with dark colors and faux snake skin leggings. this dress is also rather short so leggings are a wiser choice as opposed to tights. i've had this ensemble in mind for quite some time, so getting dressed this morning took no time. it sure is a great way to kick start the day.
