Keeping it Neutral

Daylight Savings Time is killlinnnggg my pics.  I need to plan better next week.

There are a few things I feel should not be discussed via social media.  That list includes politics (how timely) unless you are very well informed and educated on what's going on, money (please stop telling the world about your financial situation...it makes everyone feel awkward), and sickness (Like the cold type stuff.  You could be in a completely different state and post about how you have the flu, and I will immediately have to go wash my hands from feeling the beginning effects of the same sickness...and if you are local, I will avoid you something fierce for the next month.)  So with that being said...here's my neutral outfit....the one that is just cozy enough to not make me regret taking off my oversized pajamas.

Are you as excited for Christmas as I am?  Go here to enter my Christmas giveaway.
Linking up here.

I agree! I don't mind so much if it someone's personal blog but FB Twitter etc...no thanks. I also sometimes feel uncomfortable when religion comes up

Have a great week!

Katie said...

i agree with you on those things! love the brown boots with the black and white sweater!

amelia said...

Ha! Agreed. Especially the third one--I cannot believe the details people feel free to share. They're worse than my grandmother!

On a brighter note, cute outfit! :)

Rachel said...

Thank goodness the election is over so we can stop being bombarded with the tweets and statuses! My go-to is always a striped shirt or sweater. I have so many, it's kind of crazy!

I was fortunate enough to not see any politics on social media this year (well, except the occassional blog post).

Deleting my facebook has been a good thing.

This post *almost* makes me want to change out of pajamas and into a socially acceptable/comfortably neutral outfit. Almost.

HAHAHA Ashley! Don't read my post for today. HAHAHAHA I talk about my election experiences from yesterday. Some people go overboard with those topics. Add to it MARRIAGES/WEDDINGS! Some have to take you through each and every step of planning.

Katie Did What said...

AMEN about the political stuff! Wasn't anybody taught that it's not polite to discuss politics? Jeeze. Plus, most people were DEFINITELY not being polite about it. Made my skin crawl a little. Anyway, your outfit's cute!! Love the stripes.

mmmm boots :) I crave these like I crave cookies! You look great and I'm always the one for a comfy outfit

You are too funny, and politics should definitely never be discussed online. You can never tell the tone of people's reactions, things get taken out of context, etc.

Robin said...

I really like your outfit!
Sometimes, even the people who are educated about issues will get nasty on social media, when it comes to discussing politics. People need to show more respect when others don't think like they do. Some of my "open-minded, tolerant" Facebook friends are actually the worst!

Jessi said...

Love it! Cute and casual! You almost could have linked to the Lauren Conrad inspo! Love the boots.

Well said! I agree, sometimes you just need to keep things to yourself :o)

Love this outfit, loving the sweater, so cute!

Niki Caron said...

I love your neutral outfit, stripes and boots are the best! I agree with the politics and money, too. Sickness I'm back and forth about. I've posted that I've been very sick but I never give details - details I hate! But I see your point about having to wash your hands, a germ phobe like myself can appreciate that, so no more posting about being sick for me!

Pharr Away... said...

Yes, I agree!!! Maybe a few (and I mean few) words here or there on those subjects, because let's face it people just can't help themselves, but outside of that it should be left alone. People get way too worked up (politics), emotional (money), or disgusting (sickness)on social media and it's neither the time nor the place!!!

Christmas, you say?!? I'm too ready, it's Maddie's first one :)!!!

Lindsay said...

You're just so darn cute!

Megan said...

I agree! Letsallmove on with our lives. Cute outfit!

Kacie said...

Holy comments Ash. I discussed my political beliefs on fb this morning.. and i'm posting it here just for you. because we aren't fb friends.. uh, hello?

I've decided if Dumbledor was A.) Alive. B.) An American Citizen. C.) Real.

He would be my choice for President.

Caroline said...

completely agree with you! people have gotten so used to sharing EVERYTHING in this day and age that we need to learn not to share EVERYTHING! :)

Kell said...

PREACH. I am so tired of hearing about politics. And I have some facebook friends that really need to learn some tact.. or shame. Oh well.
