Have you ever had one of those days where you wake up and immediately regret that decision? You know, the days where the snooze alarm eventually gives up on you and turns itself off? These days typically involve mumble grumbling about having to put on real pants and then begrudgingly hauling yourself from point A to point B with great disdain. So what does one wear when they have a mean case of the I’ll-Rise-But-I-Will-Not-Shine blues? Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to a little look I like to call “glamunge”. I know what you’re thinking… You’re saying to yourself, “Emily, this is insanity. Glam and grunge? Together? Not a chance” (clearly you’ve never seen Kate Moss, like… ever). Trust me, y’all, this is a stroke of genius. The jeans and plaid say, “Whatever dude, I don’t care” and the pearls say, “Well, I guess I do care… but only a little!”. The hat is obviously perfect for hiding those greasy second day roots (but the gold foil dots make it super cute) and the sunglasses, while posh on the surface, are just large enough to block out the world. It’s the perfect human shaped disguise for those days when you’re an absolute monster.

See? Genius. Now, if you’ll excuse me, teenage me is going to play on these railroad tracks while caterwauling some Nirvana lyrics because I’m just so deep or something.
