Dyslexic Heart

This outfit:
makes me feel like I just fell out of this movie:
This was such a popular movie with me and my friends -the soundtrack is EPIC! It encompassed the grunge style and mindset that was so popular at the time (and was my first introduction to Kyra Sedgwick - forget The Closer - she's forever Linda.) Of course the characters were waaaaay older than we were, but we thought they were the coolest – Living surrounded by artists and socially conscious people trying to figure out why we’re all here while embodying the popular alternative style of the 90s.
I’m having a hard time figuring out how else to wear a long skirt without boots that I don’t look like I’m dressing 10 years older than I am. I think I have a block. My mom used to wear long skirts in the 80s with sweaters and flats, very of that time, however if anything I put on evokes those memories, I have to change. I think its because I would associate that look with her age range – which was way older than me. Now that I am pretty much around that age, I feel like I have to avoid what has the “old” connotation. Weird hang-up right? I think so…
I wore the hat outside and my hair up inside. I didn’t used to feel this way, but when I’m indoors and gonna stay somewhere a while, I feel like I need to take my hat off- Like it’s too much accessory to have no purpose on my head indoors. (So then I have to worry about what my do looks like after I remove its cover.)
I need to get over this stuff stat.
Speaking of over – how much longer is this day?

I love this outfit, and this is a great post. I definitely have a hard time figuring out how to style longer skirts, and I also have a tricky time figuring out "old" or "young" dressing. I think this looks great though!! Super cute! :)

hmmm. I LOVE Kyra on the Closer. Does that mean that I will SUPER LOVE her in this movie, as she plays someone with my very own name?
I will have to find out.
