So due to technical difficulties with my lousy camera, this is the only picture I got of my outfit today. Sad panda. Oh well. I wanted to share it because I learned that today is "Wear orange for bully awareness" and while I didn't originally choose this outfit for that reason, it's definitely a cause I can get on board with.
Shirt - Zulily
Dress as skirt - Merona, Target
Necklace - S&D
Shoes - Xhilaration, from Lori
I'm actually reading a fascinating YA book right now about the topic of bullying - it's called Eleanor and Park and it's very good and thought provoking. I became interested in it when I learned that a school district in our county chose it as the summer read for teens, but then parents got a hold of it and demanded it be banned because of language used in the book. The controversy went so far that a talk to be held with the author at one of our county libraries was actually cancelled. I think it's a shame - it's a very good book so far even though I am only about halfway through it. I think it's an important read and yes, there is some tough language, but it fits with the tone of the book. I'll have more thoughts on this when I finish it I think.
And the other thing about orange? I am still crazy in love with Orange is the New Black and we only have a few episodes left. I am going to be in withdrawal when we finish that show!! Have any of you watched it?
