What I wore 5.6.11 - The Dainty Squid

What I wore 5.6.11

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

the details:
shirt - a gift
shorts - thrifted!
shoes - thrifted!

I am absolutely, head over heels, in love with these shorts. I was on my way up to the fitting room in Goodwill when I spotted these squished on a rack between a million pairs of boring shorts. I ripped them off the hanger and darted to the fitting room. I couldn't believe it when they fit! I am one lucky gal! They remind me of something my oldest brother would have worn in his teens (except not high waisted. haha).

It feels really great to wear simple outfits now that the weather is getting nice. Not that my outfits are ever very complex, I just mean something simple as in just shorts and a t-shirt, ya know?

 PS. My internet is still out right now. I can check emails on my phone, but I sure do I hate typing out long things on it so if you're expecting an email from me - hold tight I'll get back to you asap!!
xoxo!
