fly, fly away: an outfit post

you won't see me wearing jeans often, and that's because i don't like them and they don't like me. genetics deprived me of the highly-coveted twig thighs, and because of that i always think jeans make me look ridiculous. but sometimes i'm just too lazy to shave my legs so it's a jean day whether i like it or not. sometimes it's also a good day to pretend you're a bird (translation: if you're prone to falling, like me, just play it off like you've got wings and are flying) and maybe people won't recognize you're actually clumsy as show in exhibit a:

sweater: target, bird blouse: vintage/gift from beca, belt: vintage/thrifted, jeans: target, boots: vintage/thrifted

yes, i was actually falling in the first picture, but it looks like i was just enjoying a day of flapping, right? i thought it only fitting seeing as how i was wearing a shirt covered in birds. speaking of that shirt, i got a package from my good pal beca, and in it was that awesome shirt, plus an AMAZING pair of sunglasses from the tumbleweeds new spring line! i cartwheeled and air punched for hours after opening it, because how much better can a package get?!

so how was your weekend? mine was really nice. chris was gone from about 6am to 10pm on saturday which meant i had the house all to myself; the perfect setting for watercolor painting and singing songs from grease. on sunday we did what we always do when we have date day: we ate too much, then followed it up with an unhealthy dose of eating some more. we also planned where we're going next week for lunch, and my mouth is already watering thinking about the roasted red pepper humus. now you can see why i'm so anal about staying on schedule with running.

i hope you're having a nice start to your week, and to make it a little brighter, be sure to enter yourself to win the $25 gift card giveaway before it ends on wednesday!

  2. Whatever, you look awesome in those jeans! I have a big ass but stocky legs meaning that skinny jeans sometimes make me look like an upside-down triangle from the waist down. My weekend was good, extremely boring and unproductive which is how I like 'em. Roasted Red pepper hummus, yummmm.

    1. would it surprise you to find out that i'm built the same, twin? people with tiny butts and slim legs make me so jealous, and i can't understand why even after all the miles i've run mine can't be that way!!!

  8. I love the way you are wearing that lace vest thing over the long sleeve shirt. That has inspired me to do a similar look. :D

  12. That shirt is SO stinkin' cute, and of course you styled it perfectly. You look awesome in jeans, you should really wear them more often (plus, no shaving is always a win).

    Ok, and you said you were wishing for my colorful heels while you were planning outfits... well, I clearly need to invest in a bird (stuffed or real) to sit on my shoulders for outfit photos. Now I'm going to feel naked without one.

  18. I feel the same way about jeans. They just cling to my thighs and make me look like a umpa lumpa. Not attractive.

  19. So many good things in this post! Firstly, I think you're owning those jeans. They look great. And further love for: those sunglasses, vintage bird blouse! and also that lace dress in that last photo. I would seriously steal that one.
