Hello friends and welcome to Monday! I had this weekend off from work and yesterday was ridiculously hot, so naturally shorts were a necessity. (When are they not though? Seriously.) I'm in the process of looking for a new job, or at least a second part time gig, and so I biked over to a local art supply store to deliver my resume. This was the best outfit I could think up of to say, "I'm a creative, artsy spirit who understands colour harmony but can also appropriately dress myself for 90 degree weather. Oh hey, I also have a fairly tasteful tattoo and who doesn't love Chaplin!" I also wore my saddle shoes because people lose their minds over them. Of course, after all this, the art shop was closed for the holiday weekend and I nearly suffered heat stroke for nothing.
I've been wearing these shorts constantly, as they're a new summer favourite. Thanks auntie! I like to pretend that I'm Nancy Drew when I wear them, out to solve the next big mystery. Okay, I know that Nancy Drew began back in the 1930s, but I think she'd still find them rather tasteful. Everytime her outfit is mentioned in a book, I get a thrill of excitement over knowing what one of my top favourite feminists is wearing. Yes, I still read Nancy Drew books. I'm not even going to bother defending myself.
