I want to start off this post by saying how GRATEFUL I am for all the kindness and support I've been getting! :) A big THANKS to all my followers (both "official" and not) and to everyone else who stumbles across my lil corner of the blog-i-verse!
Now, ON TO THE OUTFIT.
I know mini-skirts (pretty sure this one even qualifies as a MICRO-mini) aren't exactly in vogue right now, buuuut every once in awhile a girl just has a micro-mini kinda day.
My aunt worked in her garden a bit over the weekend. Flowers are some of my favorite things in the whole world, so it makes me very happy! And I'm not the only one, either: a beautiful little yellow bird has been hanging around by all the windows singing me songs, too. How lucky am I? I sing back to him sometimes, and feel a lot like Snow White. No photos of my lil vibrantly-feathered friend (he's too darn quick!), but I also sort of made friends with the neighbor's cat, who was out for a hunting excursion while I took outfit photos:
I'm cracked up by the fact that this outfit is nerdy and sexy all at the same time!
I firmly believe in what I've termed "the Half-n-Half Rule:" which states that if you're showing off your legs, you better cover your...torso (...ahem...). Balance it out, ladies, haha: if you're going tiny on the top, go big on the bottom and vice-versa (like, if you must wear a bralet, pair it with a longer, billowy skirt [not ripped up daisy dukes please], or if you're sporting "shortie" shorts, put them with a voluminous top and hat/scarf). That rule usually keeps an outfit sexy but not skanky.
|This scarf is one of the best things I've ever bought; I wear it ALL THE TIME (as I'm sure you've noticed in my past blog posts).|
|Anyone else noticing that these wooden-heeled booties are, like, "THE THING" lately? Sheesh...They're absolutely everywhere on Lookbook!|
