Printed Shorts and awkwardness

Shirt: Land's End (thrifted)
Tank: Old Navy
Shorts: J. Crew (Consignment shop- Fireweed consignment)
Clutch: ? (thrifted)
Sunglasses: Old Navy
Shoes: Shi (Journey)

So evidently my skin magically morphs into a shirt.  Pretty cool.  (Or weird.)

It was so warm and sunny all day long, right until I decided to take pictures.  Of course the weather decided that was a great time to rain and it was a great time for the neighbors to come out and stare.  Thus, awkward pictures.  Eeee.   It's hard to get your model on when people are staring right at you and you can almost hear them talking about the crazy girl outside taking pictures of her outfit. (At least, I hope that's what they think I'm doing!)

I love, looove these cute printed shorts I found at one of our local consignment stores, Fireweed Consignment.  And I know the first thing they tell you at Fashion School 101 is DON'T wear a loose, baggy open shirt because it will make you look bigger, but I don't care because I like to wear my baggy shirts open.  I like to wear loose shirts with shorts and super high heels because it seems to take the sexy vibe of the shorts and shoes down a notch and keep the look breezy.  (Or I could just be blowing smoke to justify me liking to wear over sized shirts open.)


  1. Those shoes are so unusual and pretty :)

  7. the print is totally cute! And I can so relate to you- I get so AWKWARD taking pics on the city streets... I always pretend that I'm not, or stop and ask a stupid question to my bf as someone walks by... so silly! It def. makes the bf annoyed :)


  8. I love the print on the shorts and those wedges are so cute! I know what you mean about awkwardness when there are people around. That's why I can't take my own outfit photos outside. It's a bit less awkward when my bf is doing it for me :P
