Whoo! I got my contacts finally and they are in!! It took a while, but I'm wearing them and I love them so much more than glasses! It is a bit of a hassle to put in and to take out, but it's worth it because during the day, I feel so free! I think my eyes are still adjusting to the contacts a bit as of now. I'm able to see far away, but things up close (specifically the computer) give me a bit of a headache. I'm hoping it's just my eyes adjusting, but in any case, I'll be back at the eye doctor in less than 2 weeks to have a check in. I'll talk more about my experience with my contacts in a later post! =)
For my outfit today, I kept things casual and comfy! It was such a nice day out. There was an abundant amount of sun and surprisingly a great deal of wind. I love the wind for when I'm outside and exercising, but for photos, it can be kinda hard. haha. My hair always seems to have a mind of it's own!
Usually on days like this, I just love to toss on a pair of shorts and a comfy tee such as this one and I just sit outside soaking in the weather. I'm not big on purposely lying there and "tanning" though. It makes me a bit uncomfortable knowing that the sun is burning me while I lie there, especially since I rarely wear sunscreen. I've been making it a goal this summer though to take better care of my skin since I'm outside so much. Throughout elementary and middle school, I always spent time outside in the summer though it was a healthy amount.
Once I started high school and picked up running and tennis, my summers have constantly consisted of 20+ hours outside. In those 20+ hours, I almost never wore sunscreen which is just sooo bad! I haven't noticed any damage to my skin besides a few spots, but I realize I should probably be more careful! I won't be outside that much this summer, but I'm going to my best to wear sunscreen whenever I'm out and not working out. (I honestly hate sweating and having sunscreen!)
The shirt that I am wearing today, I actually got last summer I think. It's a soft white tee shirt was the most colorful floral design on the front. The flowers have such a beautiful mix of colors that are just perfect for spring time! The shirt is a bit see through so I had to wear a black cami underneathe. For my shorts, I wore a pair of my blue colored shorts.
When it comes to shorts, I'm much more adventurous with colors than I am with jeans. I think it's much easier to play around with colors on shorts since I don't have to worry so much about whether or not the color would be flattering on me!
Speaking of trying out new colors, now that I have contacts, I've been having a bit of fun with my makeup. I haven't worn any of my "fun looks" out yet since I'm working on perfecting them hehe. One thing I tried this week was playing around with colored eyeliner. I typically wear either black or plum liner, but I got this awesome blue/teal colored eyeliner and I wanted to test it out.
It actually looks pretty good on me I have to say! It's not too noticeable because of my eye lids, but when I blink or look down you can see it! =) I might give some more colors a try to see what works well for me!
For my shoes and jewelry, I wore a pair of jeweled flip flops and a simple ring! Flip flops are my favorite shoes to wear in the summer since they are so comfy. Either that or just going barefoot depending on what I'm doing hehe!
So I'm going to be pretty busy from this week all the way up to prom! I've put everything on a calendar and it looks like I have several award, cermonies, and event things to attend at my school as well as appointments with the dentist, eye, and doctor and an overnight orientation this week! (beyond excited and nervous!). I actually think I've doubled booked myself once or twice so I'm going to have to fix that soon!
