Springtime (Or Winter?) OOTDs

Almost exactly a month ago, I shared a blog post featuring the outfit-of-the-day photos I recently started taking in my stereotypical over-the-door college mirror. As you probably suspected, I wear a lot more outfits than just the two I post weekly on Graceful Rags, so this gives me an opportunity to showcase more of my daily looks. This past month’s outfits included a lot of…well…winter looks? That’s right, Denver likes to snow in May, so this batch of OOTDs is a hodgepodge of winter outfits, spring outfits, and even a few summer looks.

That’s because when I started Graceful Rags back in 2016, I did it to scratch my itch for creativity, and more importantly, I wanted to design something fun and lighthearted through the lens of fashion—a place for stylish young gals to come and poke fun at the latest trends, find outfit inspiration, and maybe even laugh every now and again. But with that said, there is always more to be said when it comes to raising awareness for major issues in today’s society, like sexual assault. Yes, it’s hard to talk about. No, it’s not glamorous or fun. But yes, it needs to be discussed. And when social awareness and fashion collide? Well, you know I had to partake.
