First off -- I apologise for the ugly mosquito bites on my legs. At least only one of them is really visible (see the final photo) and the other one is on the backside of my upper most thigh, so it was only caught in one photo. If you go to try to look for it, then you sir are one serious creeper.
Second -- I'm not blonde yet. I took these photos about a week and a half ago. I've been so freaking lazy and complacent about photographing outfits lately. It's been annoyingly cold again! I had four days off from work last week and just spent the time at home, watching Star Trek Deep Space Nine with my babe and making more SOULMATES stuff. Oh yeah, you read right. And I don't mean like, one little necklace or half an earring pair. I've begun two earring pairs and have finished three necklaces. I have been VERY productive compared to how I had been functioning before. I've also started planning on making some new jewelry pieces, to add to the earrings and necklaces. If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know what I'm talkin' about.
I can't even believe that I haven't worn these shorts yet -- and I don't just mean on the blog for you guys. I've had them since...last May? Thing is, I had NOOOTHING to wear with them. My wardrobe lacks many red/coral/pink colours, and even tops that seemed like they would vaguely match in colour were just completely wrong for the style of these shorts. They're the cutest and most comfortable high waisted shorty shorts that I own, I think. So you'd think I would have bought a different colour, but I didn't like the other variations. I'm a little stubborn, I guess?
By the way I WAS BORN TO LOVE THIS SHIRT. A...a tarot card shirt? For real? For $25? Whaaat? And I'll be honest with you, I've been pretty unimpressed with a lot of cutout-sleeved shirts I've been seeing lately (I feel like the cut in the sleeves for a lot of shirts I've seen are awkwardly round, in a way that looks silly to me. I can't explain it) but for some reason, I really do love the sleeve cuts on this one. The cuts are less round and more gradual, and I like it a LOT better. I told you that Pacsun can do no wrong, guys. (Or, well...I do mean Doe, who is responsible for this amazing shirt. But at least Pacsun knows to carry good looking stuff.)
I think I'm going to invest in some more bodycon dresses and skirts for this year. I see 'em paired with trashy tees and jackets, and it just sets my heart afire. Especially ones with crazy neon colours or patterns. Mm-hmm!
