See what I did there? I’m going to comment on SOPA & PIPA and my shirt is fringed at the ends. Super clever, I know. That’s why you all come here right?
I usually don’t comment on politics of any kind – mostly because I don’t feel that I am ever informed enough to form a reasonable opinion – but also because it is one of the most controversial topics and there is no use in arguing over something that cannot or will not change. That being said, the potential of SOPA & PIPA is scary. We are censored everywhere except the internet and there is no reason to take away all of our freedom of expression. The underlying intent of both bills is understandable – to protect copyrighted and trademarked property – but there has to be a way to do this and still give people the freedom and right to express themselves on the internet – really the last place that we can do it freely.
Please sign this petition to fight SOPA & PIPA.
Now onto more important matters; my outfit!
I wear this jacket entirely too much. It’s just perfect for any casual outfit. I’m thinking I need one like it in a couple more colors. I was eyeing this shirt at Urban Outfitters for a few months, just waiting for it to go on sale (most of their things do eventually go to clearance) and I finally snagged it. I’m already looking for Coachella outfit inspiration and I think shirt will be coming with me.
*Jacket: Marshalls. Jeggings: Gap. Boots: Target. Shirt: Urban Outfitters.
You might all be asking yourself (but most likely not), “Why is Jennifer not participating in the blackout if she disagrees with the bills?” Well, I’ll tell you why. I think it’s better to speak out in protest than to black out and essentially keep quiet. Don’t get me started on the Occupy protestors who complain that they do not have economic equality, yet they are choosing to live in the streets for months instead of working. (*pst, maybe that’s why you’re not up there with the 1%). Yes, the black out is a way of speaking out, I get it. I don’t think it’s a bad idea, I just don’t think it’s necessary.
But, I could have a totally backwards way of thinking. Afterall, my mom always used to tell me to ignore my brother when he was bothering me when we were little, because he liked the rise he got out of me, and therefore, continued to do it. But I just continued to fight with him. Mother’s are always right, right?
Oh these shoes. Again. I can’t help it. You are welcome to take me shoe shopping if you oppose. I promise I will have different shoes on in my next post!
When we were taking these photos, I was yelled at by a passing (young) teenager to “take it off!”. Have children always been this vulgar and rude? I know I wasn’t.
