Remember my fall fashion manifesto (and if you don't it's literally the next post down so keep scrolling) when I boldly stated that I'll be doing the least these next few months and sticking to a more minimal palette? Well this is me following up on that promise. Not only is there not a single polka dotted, gingham, floral print, glittery, striped, plaid, piece of fabric in sight, I'm actually wearing a single color. And it's not hot pink, it's plain white! Changes are taking place y'all; I'll be on my way to sleek, minimalist, monotone dressing in no time.
I've also been making my way through Sophia Amoruso's Girl Boss (hashtag omitted because I am not here for hashtags anywhere that's not a computer/phone screen) so here are my thoughts on the 50 pages I've read thus far: I like it.
I feel like me and her would be friends if we knew each other in real life, but I definitely had to suppress an eye roll at her feminism definition. Then I remembered that I'm a grown woman who can do whatever she wants and roll her eyes at books as much as she pleases and I proceeded to do just that. When people try and paint feminism as this men blaming, Earth Mother worshiping, bra-burning, movement it's irksome. When a successful women does that, and then puts it in her bestselling book titled Girl Boss it's endlessly frustrating. Feminism is wanting equal rights for women and men like, it's not that hard to understand without having to add in all that extra stuff. Anyways besides that, I've been breezing through and thoroughly enjoying her conversational, casual prose and fun nuggets of advice.
"I don’t want you to look up, because all that looking up can keep you down. The energy you’ll expend focusing on someone else’s life is better spent working on your own. Just be your own idol."
Words to live by indeed.
Of course I realize the irony of me naming this post "Doing the Least" and then proceeding the do the most by preaching to y'all about feminism and life advice, but I guess being extra is just kind of in my nature like that.
