enjoy


I'm back from New Mexico! I have load of little goodies and photos to show off, but I'll do this outfit post first. Well actually, I picked this shirt up at the Target down in Santa Fe, so it sort of counts, ehhh?

No, not really.

I do love Coca Cola, though. I'm obsessive about it, actually. We have had, at times, 8 cases of Coke in the basement. All of which were mine. In fact, I'm going to quit talking about it now while I'm still ahead.

So besides the shirt (which was $9 in the men's section, and I cut to semi-flatter a smaller frame like mine), I'm also wearing old cut offs from last summer, a leopard print belt I bought at the second hand store a couple weeks ago, and new boots courtesy of the folks over at Wanted Shoes.

The style is the "Brave." I just loved them because of the off-white colour and the crochet cut outs. They remind me of Molly Ringwald as Andie in Pretty in Pink. I can see her wearing these with a calf-length floral skirt, jean vest, and bowler hat, smack talking Steff and all the other prep rich kids.

I chose the belt as my bit of whimsy for the outfit. Plus, I was going to the zoo so it seemed like the perfect occasion for such. It's still pretty chilly in Minnesota so I'm wearing tights with all my shorts and jackets over all my shirts. Come on, Mr. Sunshine! Shine on our little midwestern town.

I'll end this with a few "reading materials" for you good folks. The first is this little interview I did for an Indonesian fashion blog. The second is my university's annual literary magazine. I had a short story and a poem published in the 2011 issue & I'd be ever so thankful if you'd read it (via the link). My section starts on pae 31 and spans in page 34 if you take the time.


Okay, now into bed I go! It was back to work today and I forgot how much my job gives me headaches! Isn't that always the case, though?

I didn't see until now how short the shirt actually was! I love the length - I always think it's cute when a girl's shirt is short enough to show a little midriff depending on how they move. It's cute. :P

I totally agree on the headaches the job gives you, it's the same with me.
But what I actually wanted to say is: Damn we need Target here in Germany! I always see pretty things all around the blogosphere and many many of them are from Target. Why can't they expand to here?
I've been looking for a coke shirt forever. Yours is so cool! I love the casual styling with the shorts and these adorable shoes! crochet love :)
