Windy Days, Skirts that Sway



This is my first romper ever! I think it makes me look like I have superboobs because of the ruffles, but it's so much fun to prance around in, la la. It's like a dress without the dangerous excitement of accidentally flashing someone. Not that flashing someone is exciting, in fact, sometimes it can be life-threatening. I should explain myself.. so, one time I was wearing a skirt and me and a friend were crossing from the parking lot to a store. It was a windy day, and this copman in his copmancar let us cross and then whooooooosh, along came some wind as I was crossing. I have no idea if this copman saw anything, but that's just adds mystery to the dangerousness of wearing skirts.

Do I look really pink in these pictures? Maybe I'm eating too much shrimp and am part flamingo, except for the fact that I don't like shrimp and I only wish I could be part flamingo. Well. I think that's a good ending for this post-- our desires for the future. If you could be any animal, what would YOU be? I'd totally be a blue lobster. Blue lobsters are sort of like blue corn, except they're lobsters.


Romper: Ross Dress For Less
Shoes: Gifted, via Modcloth
Belt: Forever 21
Necklace: Gifted, vintage

I would be a winged lion for sure. it's the best of both worlds - you get to be feline, and everyone knows cats are awesome because they do whatever the hell they want and can jump like 5x their own height - plus you get to fly.

And yes, short skirts do have a danger sometimes, but I'm not quite ready to stop wearing them.

Love the romper, the floral is adorable!

Chic on the Cheap

Haha I know what you mean about accidentally flashing people. Thank goodness for biker shorts! I'm loving your romper, the print is lovely!

I love your jumper so cute and your shoes are equally adorable.

Yay for rompers! I love love the idea of SUPER BOOBS, the newest and biggest superhero? I think so.
And those, my dear, are darling booties for your booty. Modcloth is amaaaazing, if just a wee bit expensive for me.

I'd like to think that I'd be a psychadelic-colored toucan. I think at one point it was well established that I'd be some kind of bird if I were an animal... and toucans are bright and loud, right? So yeah, squawk. :D

hahaha your commentary always cracks me up. you'd make one hell of a flamingo! and aren't ruffles fabulous? they fake boobs when they aren't there! :P

if i were an animal...i secretly tell myself i'd be a fox or a husky but i don't think i'm quite as sly or sleek as them. i'd have to go with rabid chipmunk or something.

OH! and i just got the moustache in the mail today! i'm beyond excited and i'm going to send you something back within the next week. and as for picture tips, editing is always a savior! especially when the lighting is bad. i use photoshop but there's other programs like paintshop pro. the lighting is definitely most important though. :)

Love the romper look.. lol SUPER BOOBS. That right there is motivation enough for me to go out and buy a romper, right? Plus the whole not flashing thing is a plus.. for for those drunken summer days. Love your style, your outfits are so cute (scrollin around your blog). Love it. Good work sweetie, can't wait to see more :)

Anna Jane said...

I have the same problem with my pictures - I often look incredibly pasty and pink! I blame my Irish skin tone. Pale skin is lovely though, embrace ittttt!

Loving your shoe boots - they're quirky and fun. And of course, rompers are always a win with me, I'm never getting rid of mine!

You rock this romper! I love flamingos, but if I could be a bird, I'd be a swan (I'm enchanted by their role in Greek myths) xo

Teri Seaglass said...

Haha, you made me smile with the Blue lobster/corn bit. Aw. I would be a sea snail/bay snail {?} just because I was playing down by the bay yesterday and there were hundreds of these magical cute little snails! Anyways, some people can't pull off rompers, but you look great! Also, I LOVE THOSE SHOES. They remind me of Robin Hood- aka AMAZING.

LOVE these photos. The lighting is so fabulous. And you look amazing. I was actually just thinking today how convenient it would be to own a romper. It's so awkward biking around in a skirt!

Animal I'd be? Ummmm. I'm actually trying really hard to think of something really cool. But I'm failing. I guess I'd be a unicorn. Who wouldn't love a unicorn?!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
