(One of the many) Things that I have been doing (while not blogging)

Dennis Port & Hyannis, Cape Cod

Dress: Nasty Gal x MINKPINK • Swimsuit: Billabong; TJ Maxx • Docs: eBay • Shades:

Kathryn finally getting a car has been a double-edged sword. For one, it has made going out and taking outfit photos a lot easier. (My usual spot is a half an hour walk away, give or take, from where we live...but it is a five minute drive now.) However, on days where I do dress up, when we go out, we do so much stuff and typically with other people around, that outfit photography takes a backseat. It just doesn't stay top-priority if we're going out with Kathryn's family to Cape Cod, or out with co-worker friends to the movie theater. Despite the fact that we easily saw the Avengers three times in three weeks more than a month before Kathryn got the car. THESE ARE PRIORITIES.

But I need to stop slacking, and I liked the idea of showing you my beautiful Nasty Gal x MINKPINK dress, coupled with my uber 90s neon bathing suit. Holy crap, I thought my ass was going to fall out of these bottoms. It was awesome.

Also, didn't I tell you guys that I am hideously short? 5'0", people. Look at me in conjunction to those cars. If average height people were horses, I would be a miniature pony.

91; For the Thrill of it

Top: • Skirt: • Necklace, earcuff, and boots: eBay • Bangle: Claire's • Vest: PacSun • Earrings: Little Sister Designs

WOW I'M ALIVE. (And check out my tat!) I have just been so...I'm not even sure. Enveloped in other things, spending my free time out of the house with people, taking up sleeping during waking hours. (My favourite activity by far.) I think I need people to like, text me once a week and assign me fashion blogging homework. I totally slacked. I'm not quite sure what happened. I sort of...stopped obsessing about this blog I think? But I've taken up secondary hobbies and need (and want) to learn how to juggle both, because I have a bad habit of monopolizing my time and attention on one single thing, instead of focusing on multiple things. Buying clothes is going to become a little more difficult in the future though, since now Kathryn has aquired a car and will need assistance paying for bills, and I hope to jump into cosmetology school sometime. Eek. School. We don't mix well.

Right, fashion blog. Fashion blog things. So, remember how I mentioned that I wear this shirt constantly? I am a fairly consistent girl in this case. I still live in this shirt. You can tell how often it gets washed, if you look at the grey fraying at the edges of the tears in the shirt. This thing is my soulmate.

Also, I never really noticed how prominent my pubic mound-bone-thing is until I wore this skirt -- hey what is TMI? -- which is kind of interesting. Is this like, the female equivilent to having bigger junk? Is it a good thing? Is it acceptable to say, "wow, this skirt really accentuates my pubic mound"? Whatever, I'll take what I can get, since I have the boobs (and overall height) of a twelve year old. Gotta compensate somehow.

I feel like a crappy fashion influence since I typically wait to buy pretty much anything until it's already on sale, and by time it's on the blog, it's dropped off the face of the internet. I got this skirt months ago! It really bums me out when I see someone rocking something awesome from say, Romwe, and when I go to look for it, it's gone. So here, if you guys like this skirt, maybe you'll like these alternatives:

Here's some song reference for ya:

These lyrics just break my heart, damn.
