Did you really think you'd go for longer than a few days without seeing this bag again? Well then you thought wrong. The last time I wore this bag, I asked you all to give me ideas on how to pair this bright color with the right colors in my wardrobe, and my darling curly-headed friend Mo from See Mo Go said navy. Upon reading that, I immediately thought "I will go to the mall and buy all the navy things." But I figured I'd go through my closet first, just in case I already owned something navy. Which was not likely, because I'm kind of afraid of navy. Don't ask. I don't have a good answer.
Turns out that I did have one, solitary navy item in my closet: a dress from Forever 21 from a few summers ago. As I mentioned, I've never really been into navy, but when you find a dress from Forever 21 that's length-appropriate, you don't ask questions or consult the color, you just buy it. It's actually a very nice summer dress with a ruffle neckline and spaghetti straps, but I had definitely written it off until at least May.
But then I remembered colored tights. Colored tights made their way out of my wardrobe the day I wore magenta tights and Matt's eyes got all squinty-eyed, and he said I looked like I had a disease. You don't have to squint at me twice; colored tights were apparently a no go around Matt. But I pulled them out again, and Matt didn't even squint. Much. And he said I looked cute. I mean, I had to ask "How do I look?" and heavily hint that "cute" was the right answer, but I married a smart man... :)
