back to basics

Today’s outfit is super-basic so I can show off these American Apparel shorts.  They were a little overpriced, but if you knew how many pairs of high rise cutoffs I’ve tried on searching for the perfect ones, you’d completely understand.  I was basically willing to trade my left kidney (it’s the weak one) for a pair of denim shorts that didn’t strangle my thighs and overexpose my cellulite.  Here they are!!

On another note, I decided to try a new makeup look today.  Normally I play up my eyes, but today I really craved a clean face with a bold red lip.  I like it, and the lack of eye makeup is great for those spontaneous crying fits (hey, no judgies!).
