Happy almost spring everyone! Minnesotan weather is so bipolar, today was above freezing and the 7 foot snowbanks in the alley were melting away. Tomorrow? We're supposed to get snow!
Nice and warm for a mild winter day - but spring! No way! So I stripped off this deliciously oversized jacket, down to my jean jacket.
I was your token '90s child. I wore leggings and velvet turtle necks everyday. I cried the day that my 101 Dalmatians sweatshirt got acrylic paint on it in first grade. I still have my sunflower print dress and my button down with pastel sunglasses printed on it. I know my shit.
I just got these shorts last week. I'm not a huge fan of floral in dresses and blouses - it's just too flouncy and girly for me! But these shorts have edge and are a great statement piece. They underplay the other statement pieces in this look (diamond fishnets, blue wedges, cheetah print beret).
I've always been too shy to wear these tights alone. I find that fishnets are difficult pull off without looking trashy (which, Hell, I am, but I don't like to go around promoting it). However, I was feeling bold today and figured that a) I needed some black, and b) what's one more pattern thrown into the mix?
I've decided that I'm going to start running. That is my springtime resolution (yes, apparently I make seasonal resolutions now!). I will start by going to Target and buying myself some workout clothes with my next paycheck - this is the most exciting prospect of my entire resolution. Since I'm not one for physical activity, I will run a little bit at a time and hopefully gain some endurance and boost my energy and appetite. I look forward to getting all dressed up in my gear and looking like I actually know what I'm doing. If anyone runs, please give me tips! I don't want to look like the sort of amateur person who goes running just for the cute gear. Even if I am.
This photo shows my tough-girl-interior. I think it says, "I will kick yo ass, punk!"
