baba o'riley

I've become very fond of my new photo spot (and I hope you are, too). My alley is surprisingly quiet and I don't know why I never thought about this in the past 3 years that I've been taking photos outside for. I've overcome my fear of neighbours spotting me being a dork/teenage blogger (synonymous, really), having it replaced by a new fear of being hit by a car. Some idiots drive fast in residential areas. Bloggers at play here, guys!
Speaking of play, I wore this outfit the other day. It was particularly hot out (90 F or something crazy like that) and I had spent the morning cutting my foot open on a new pair of shoes and prancing around in a skirt. In the evening, I went out with some friends and thus slipped into something better for play, and into shoes that won't murder my feet. Unfortunately, exposed skin isn't good for play. Somewhere in the night I ended up falling and skinning my elbow, as well as bruising my bum. My elbow scab is really sexy hot and I'm practically beating the boys off.
Although I've been complaining about my new injury a fair amount, it's secretly a happy marking of the arrival of summer and my fair weather friends. Seriously, skinning yourself in the winter is nearly impossible due to the lack of bare pavement & heavily clothed bodies. My recent injuries can only mean one thing: summer.
Another sign of summer: sunnies! I've been sunglass shopping the past few days and have, on several occasions, had to resist the urge to buy some new sunnies. I've come down with a recent fear of ruining my eyesight after a man on the bus told me about finally getting his cataracts removed and being able to read again. Yikes!
These shorts are Mink Pink and from ModCloth several sales ago. I'm obsessed with them. Usually floral makes me gag (there - now you know) but these are just perfect. I prepped them up with the bengal striped button down and tied it in a knot because that's the new trend I'm setting. Everyone knot your shirts this summer. It's infinitely cooler and everyone will want to be your friend. Literally...everyone.

Thanks to everyone who's entered the Summer of Sundresses thus far! I've loved the entries that I've recieved and cannot wait to reveal them all. Until that time, if you find yourself in a sundress, take a photo and email it to me at urban_tease@yahoo.com - more details are below! Keep cool, friends xx
