The Misfit

Beanie & Rings: c/o Shop Lately   Tank, Button Down, & Jacket: thrifted   Jeggings: American Eagle   Boots: Just Fab


Whenever I wear this beanie, I get a lot of closer examinations and surprised smiles. I suppose people don't really think I'm a misfit. Perhaps that's because I have the right "look" to be the type of girl who'd fit in. Truth is, I'm an awkward introvert who occassionally pushes myself to make social ventures. I mean, I get involved in sports, student activities, and joined Senate for heaven's sake. However, it hasn't shaken this feeling of isolation within me. I'm with a crowd but not in it.

So basically, I'm loving this beanie. It's so quirky and makes a fun statement that reflects how I feel.
Also, aren't these heeled boots from Just Fab the sexiest thing ever?? Oh my word, I cannot get over how amazing they make my legs look! Haha, nothing like a stiletto heeled, badass boot to pick a girl's spirits up!

In other news, for those of you who tried to view my blog a couple days ago may have been redirected due to a warning that it contained malware. I was panicking over what may have happened and went through quite a process of researching what I needed to do! Thankfully, Mr. Scruffy (yeah, remember him? He's still in the picture) helped me out and although he wasn't certain what to do either, he stumbled across a page that I hadn't found before and I was able to ask Google to review my site and check again if it had any malware. Thankfully, I'd removed the infected banner, and The Dragonfruit Diaries is back to it's old self.

So I'm sorry for any confusion that may have caused!

Omg how scary! If you don't mind me asking, which was the infected banner? It would be super helpful, but I understand if you don't want to disclose it! Anyways, badass outfit Linda! I love the misfit beanie and the leather boots! You look awesome!

Those booties and the beanie are freaking awesome! LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit so much :) And same here, I'm an introvert but I force myself to try new things. But I think it's a great learning experience to do so even if I don't feel super comfortable at first!

You can pull off this style of hat well. I could not, but love it on you. The lady-like lace top is such a lovely piece to wear with this. x/Madison

Hi Linda, I was worried about that virus, I thought it had deleted your site! Glad you fixed it. He is so sweet to help, does that mean he reads your blog? Adore the cool unfussy grunge appeal of this outfit, that beanie is too cute. I like how you can transform from girly girl to misfit (in a good way of course) in just a post. May your week get off to a great start!

Those pants look fabulous with those boots!

Those are some killer boots, girl! I love the jeggings too, the wash on them is so cool. Paired with the lace top you created such a wonderful juxtaposition that just works! And ugh, I've had stuff like that happen with my blog before too...it is scary! Glad everything was fixed :)

Candida Maceo said...

Ooh I love your Misfit style! Such a cute edgy look, and you wear it well. Beautiful pictures too. I am an awkward introvert as well. I actually agree with all of your sentiments - you just have to embrace it. :)

What an adorable look for the colder months. I always loved how you can pull off hats. :)

Can I just say I'm inspired by how you are okay with looking real? Like, you're a healthy weight with chipped fingernails and all these little details that most people freak out about you just breeze by. It's wonderful and refreshing. <3

love,

Ah I'm glad the malware thing got sorted out!
Also, love the beanie. I see these items with provocative texts written on them and I don't think I'd have to guts to even wear the mildest of them. Oh, and I love the lace/leather combo here!
