30 for 30 - day 27

Only 3 left! I am definitely ready to wear all of my clothes again. Or at least the good ones (and hopefully donate some more of the ones I'm not as fond of). Don't even ask what I'm doing in some of these pictures. I needed a change from the usual, so that meant goofy, apparently.

I'm not entirely sure how I feel about the purple-on-purple in this, but the necklines worked better then purple-on-black-and-white-stripes, so I gave it a shot. What do you think? Does it work or clash?

See this crazy hair? This is what my hair looks like when I shower at night, let it dry in my sleep, and roll out of bed. I added a clip to keep the weird bangs part out of my face, but otherwise, au naturel!

sparkly socks! from Delia's when I was about 12. 
belt: Aeropostale; socks: Delia's; earrings: boutique in Montreal; necklace: F21; rings: gift and H&M

Lately I've been feeling more of a need for creativity in my life. My software engineering job is creative in a certain way, but it doesn't have the same satisfaction to me as creating something beautiful (or delicious, or both) with my own two hands. Once again I have the feeling of not having the time to do everything I want, but I have to remind myself that it's because I am making time for other things I want to do - I cooked dinner for Tim and myself almost every night this week, went to ballet twice (for an hour and a half each!) and did other self-betterment sorts of things, in addition to my full time job and getting plenty of sleep. But I haven't really found the time to crochet lately, and I want to learn to use a sewing machine, knit, and felt wool, and all of those things feel like they won't fit into my schedule for weeks or months. Time to reprioritize, I guess?
