Feeling pretty good these days. Gotta love a mixed up summery little outfit. And hipster tattoos. Hooray hipster tattoos.
I’ve never been a fan of summer sandals; they’re always heavy, clunky things (why is the footbed always so wide??) that weigh an outfit down. A pointy flat adds a dose of put-togetherness, and this lace-up style is the perfect blend of gladiator and ballerina. I can’t wait to wear these with simple floaty dresses and cropped jeans.
Skorts are practical, and this one in particular is incredibly flattering. Now, skorts aren’t exactly a new look for me, I’ve actually been rocking them since 5th grade. But unfortunately, my Catholic middle school did not have Topshop design the girls’ uniforms. Thus, they ended up being an un-trendy knee-length pair of plaid shorts with one fabric flap in the front and one in the back. The flaps made it look like a little pleated skirt, without the possibility of upskirting from the boys (before upskirting was even a word). The problem was, if you weren’t careful with your back flap, it would fall into the toilet when you pulled your skort down to pee. Of course you might not even notice until after you were done using the bathroom, so you would have a urine-soaked flap to try to rinse off, ring out, and dry halfway under the hand dryer before doing the my-flap-fell-in-the-toilet-and-I-peed-on-it walk of shame back to class. This happened to me more times than I’d like to admit, and it was always awkward to spend the rest of the day walking around with a wet ass flap.
As if middle school wasn’t hard enough.
Yes, it’s been awhile since my last post. If you’ve followed my blog for a little you already know that I’m not the most consistent poster. I hope it’s worth the wait, and that this outfit post was everything you have ever dreamed of and you will never have the urge to buy another fashion magazine or click through another blog again. But probably not. Happy October; I hope you like Halloween colors.
