I See Your True Colors

As I believe I have made abundantly clear on this little blog of ours, my absolute favorite go to outfit is a pair of denim and a white top. The result of this is I now have a lovely collection of white tops in all sorts of styles, sleeve lengths, details, what have you. It’s gotten to the point that I literally do not go shopping without coming home with a white top. Even T. has noticed, which is pretty impressive (and before you ask babe, yes I do need another top and no I do not already own this one).

There are many reason that a white top and denim make the perfect outfit pair: 1) it’a super easy to throw on and go, 2) it always gives off an effortlessly chic vibe (you know, until you spill coffee on yourself, which basically kills that vibe), and 3) it means when you run across a fun, colorful wall, you can take photos and not clash!  OK, so maybe that last one only really applies to bloggers, but I am pretty sure those first two are universal.  So here’s hoping you are loving this combo as much as I am, and hey, next time you run across a crazy cute wall, I say blogger or no blogger, snap that photo!

The Greatest Show On Earth

If I were to join a freak show or circus (just go with me on this one), I already know exactly what talent I’d bring to the big top experience. Ok, I’m no lion tamer, I’d make a terrible bearded lady (unless the new definition of “bearded lady” is “faint, pubescent boy mustache”), and the trapeze is the absolute last place you’ll find me… (and no, blinding people with my paleness isn’t a talent… it’s a gift I give freely #yourewelcome). No, my special skill would be the magical elastic girl – twisting my body into shapes that apparently aren’t normal (if you only knew how many photos I haven’t used because I look like a broken doll human or fashionable demon in need of an exorcist…) and appearing taller than I actually am. Now, I’m not short, but there’s nothing like a nice vertical stripe to elongate the frame. It’s true! You know how some folks kvetch about how horizontal stripes make you look wider? Well, friend, if you take those horizontal stripes and flip ’em on their ear, you can visually tack on a vertical inch or two. Ok, fine, it’s not exactly a wild and crazy box office draw of a trick, but it’s still pretty cool, right?
