I found a vacation photo I'd forgotten about. Or maybe I subconsciously forgot it on purpose (did that just make any sense?), because I'm not sure if it really works. The outfit, I mean. I like all the pieces, but maybe not all together. What do you think? I also feel like my face looks 12 here... but that's a personal problem. Frank V. didn't call me "chipmunk cheeks" in 10th grade for nothing. I was much less cool back then, and didn't know how to properly lean against buildings. But now I do, as you can obviously see.

I think I'm really liking these shorts. They are like very short textured trousers. If I pair them with some black tights, maybe I can keep wearing them into the fall. I could even try some mustard yellow tights, but on second thought, someone might call me "lemon legs" and that might scar me worse than "chipmunk cheeks." Anyhoo... where is the best place to buy tights that don't fight you when you are trying to put them on? I don't enjoy fighting with my legwear. While we are at it, I don't like legwear I can see my reflection in either... they remind me of spandex which I already did in metallic royal blue back in 1990. I suppose I am very picky about my tights, which is something I didn't know about until just now.
Dress: Ross; Necklace: Lisa Leonard; Shoes: Marshalls; Non-Hipster Glasses: Costco
I wear glasses, and it's not because I'm trying to be a hipster. Even though I can lean against buildings pretty well, I am just not cool enough to be a hipster. These glasses are not nearly big enough to be hipster glasses either. Just to keep the name calling theme of this post going... no one has ever called me "Four Eyes." Probably because I don't wear them out frequently enough. I usually just wait until a person is within 5 feet of me before I greet them, so I don't accidentally mistake them for someone else. Anyway, I adore this dress... A. Because it is embroidered and 2. It reminds me of Denise, who owns the same dress in hunter green. It is my goal to meet Denise someday, and I would definitely wear my glasses so I could recognize her. I would see her from more that 5 feet away and call... DEEEEENIIIIIIISE!!!!! and she would call out LIIINNNNNDDDA!!!!! And we would talk and sing and laugh for a long time. And I wouldn't call her any names... except for Rachel maybe, because she likes that.
