When getting dressed I have two stages. The first stage is what I call the "most people" stage. It's the stage when my outfit would be worn by most people. For example, this pink dress with tights would be that outfit. But I have a second stage that I call "the Ruta" stage. That's when I throw on a bunch of things that add my personal little touch, like this vest, the socks and the necklace. If I just wore the dress I would feel naked because it's not who I am, I need to have eccentric pieces that show my personality.
It's a shame that so many people are scared to wear something that will set them apart from the crowd. I was bullied in elementary school and a part of high school for being different, but that made me even stronger and it made me appreciate my uniqueness. I really wish more people had the strength to step away from trends and the crowds. That's probably a reason I never follow fashion week. It really bothers me when people think that following trends makes them fashionable. I hardly ever go shopping, and if I do it's to pick up basic items that I can wear over and over again. Usually I just pull out random clothes I find tucked away or borrow something from my mom.
Anyways, enough of my rambling. We've been having lovely weather in Toronto, so incredibly beautiful. All I want to do is frolic outside in the sunshine, but school is pretty much my biggest barrier right now. Summer please come sooner!
Have a lovely weekend, and see you all next week!
