Sorry I’ve been missing lately.  It’s been raining here the past few days, which is a good thing where wildfires and water restrictions are concerned, but not so helpful for motivating myself to take photos.  Lucky me, the sun came out briefly today and I was able to sneak over to a nearby industrial area to model these fun sequin shorts and get a lot of strange looks from various workers in this building.  Funny – when I started my blog a year ago I would get really uncomfortable if I noticed people watching me take photos, and now it doesn’t phase me.

Happy No Pants Tuesday!

fluro trim

A smaller dose of neon today against some nice neutral shades.  As much as I hate buying shorts (see this post), I fell in love with these awesome neon trim ones from Laugh Cry Repeat.  They have a nice high-ish waist with a good amount of room in the legs (I went up a size to ensure a looser fit), a formula that proves most flattering for bigger thighs.  Honestly, I don’t know why all shorts aren’t made like these, it gets so frustrating shopping for shorts when all that are offered are low-cut, booty-cheek-displaying hotpants that look good on approximately .0082% of the population.  Yes?

from the past

abercrombie jacket, cynthia rowley shirt, asos skirt (similar here) and clutch (similar here), sam edelman yelena sandals, gifted bracelet and rings

I bought this top back in high school; it’s one of the first nice things I purchased.  Somehow, I’ve never managed to wear it until today.  It’s an odd shape, and being completely backless, poses a serious undergarment challenge.    But today it was calling to me from the back of my closet, so I finally wore it with a denim jacket (this one dates back to 7th grade, when crop jackets were all the rage) and a pretty peach pencil skirt.  Topped off with my Sam Edelman heels and a complementary clutch, I like it so much, I just might wear it again in the next 6 years.
