Out of Context... I'm A "Slob!"

Since college has started back I've appreciated the 'non-uniform' element more than ever. from time to time it is difficult to find new and different things to wear, but at the end of the day, no matter what the outfit, its bound to be more comfortable than a shirt and tie.

It became apparent to me a few days ago that the 'Student Look' is only really acceptable in and around the college campus. Picture this: Should you take a student out of their natural habitat and place them in say, a fancy restaurant, we all of a sudden look disheveled lazy and unkempt. however, place us right back in the student union and we blend in nicely, and look somewhat stylish.
(everyone's the same ^^^ )
I always dress for comfort over any other factor. While I still take pride in my appearance, my outfit decision always ultimately surrenders to the comfiness! Having gone to an all girls secondary school I never felt it necessary to impress people with my appearance, so i never wore make up to school. As a result of this, I feel a lot more confident leaving the house without make up on, no matter where I'm going or who I'm going to see. don't get me wrong I still LOVE slapping on some foundation and getting all glamorous from time to time, but I know for some, not wearing makeup on a day to day basis, is a major 'no-no'.

I wouldn't say that I'm a self conscious person, not when it comes to my body or appearance, but this is not to say that I don't sometimes like or need the odd compliment to make me feel pretty or that I don't get jealous of other girls that are clearly prettier or sexier.
At the end of the day, all I care about is my comfort. I have the ability to 'clean up' well when the occasion requires it, but I ain't afraid to go out 'unmasked'. In fact my skin is an awful lot clearer for it. I recommend it! :)
