My wardrobe has two settings: bold, bright, and badass and fun, flouncy, and feminine. Usually I favor whimsy over womanly though, so anytime I find myself feeling unabashedly ladylike, I am reminded of a few #justgirlythings:

  • Life expectancy for my manicure: 10 minutes. Life expectancy for my pedicure: 20 years.
  • Any beauty guru knows that the best way to turn your pristine daytime makeup into a smudgy, smokey eye is to just wear your contact lenses too long.
  • Sometimes I think about working out, but then I figure I hit my squat quota for the month anytime I have to use a child sized toilet in heels.
  • Want to add shine to your hair? Wear lipgloss on a windy day!
  • You know, Sherlock Holmes is touted as being this brilliant problem solving, master of disguise, but I’ve never once seen him remove blood from anything, covertly smuggle a tampon to the bathroom, OR even attempt contour his face. Methinks the bar for “genius” was set puh-retty low.
  • Blowouts are like the rain dances of the modern age. Hair on fleek? It’s gonna sleet.
  •  I’ve never attempted a Houdini escape from a chained strait jacket while suspended over a pool of piranhas, but I have worn tights before, so… I figure I can handle it.

Other favorite #justgirlythings include: sarcasm, smashing the patriarchy, and these Kendra Scott earrings (did you know that you can get 50% off any one item at Kendra Scott during your birthday month? Treat. Yo. Self.)

  1. This looks particularly fetching on you. Love the scarf and the shoes, the whole outfit, very “per–retty.” You look like a “femme-fatale”. I also got the biggest kick out of your fashion “advice” and observations. Love the sarcasm! Love the Houdini-dash-tights analogy. But truly you look really nice and glamourous in this “get-up”.

    1. Thank you so much for those per-retty compliments, Annie! So sweet! I keep telling myself that if I dress like Audrey Hepburn, one day I might get to be Audrey Hepburn… Nothing doing yet, but a girl can dream, can’t she? 😉
