Don't Trust Me

I've been wanting to try out these shorts for a long time now. I broke down & bought them on UO online clearance a few months ago. I was so excited! But when I got them & put them on, the shorts were way way way too big for me, particularly around the waist. I was a bit shocked, considering that they're Cheap Monday (notorious for being cut small) and an XS. So, sadly, I stuffed them away in my closet figuring that I could either get them tailored or wait a few years when I might have slowly grown a bit wider (& hopefully taller!).

Of course I got tired of waiting, so I experimented with different forms of holding them up (belts, suspenders, tucking in extremely thick shirts) and eventually ended up with this combination. I love the blue/gold belt with the denim shirt. And denim shirts with black ties are probably one of the best combinations. Ah, I love menswear. Guys do not realize how lucky they are.
I'm already getting into the mood to go back to school shopping. This year I'll actually be able to look for things other than pants....and for pants made out of things other than khaki or black fabric. Hoorah for no more school uniform! Some of the things I'm currently looking at or for are a white BB Dakota band jacket, a dark green utility jacket, high waisted pants (not jeans!), oxfords, harem pants, and ankle boots. Minnesota gets cold pretty quickly so everything needs to be heavy duty (and nothing is, of course) for strutting around campus in.

Lately I've been ridiculously obsessed with that song "Don't Trust Me" by 3OH!3. My sister loved it when it first came out and would come over to the house and blast it. Of course I never found it appealing when she played it (who would?) but now I'm listening to it 5 or more times each day. I'm pretty sure I'm driving my mother crazy.

Anyways, I better get on with my life. I'm currently waiting for a package to come (via UPS) and for my hair to dry so I can go take an outfit photo outside before my crazy neighbour gets home & finds me further ridiculous for standing outside with a tripod taking photos of myself. I'm also supposed to go thrifting with my friend, but if she doesn't call me back I'll probably sit inside playing Sims 2 & listening to a mixture of 3OH!3/MGMT/Lissy Trullie/Coeur de Pirate/The Pains of Being Pure at Heart/Nightmare of You/La Roux. What a horrid combination.

I looooove those shorts. The zippers are super cool.

And back-to-school shopping is definitely the only thing I've been thinking about for the past two weeks. I'm already planning outfits for like, the dead of winter.

The denim shirt with the black tie is so adorable!
But for the love of god, please do not buy harem pants. I will cry.
