Smiling is my favorite (except in the last picture)

Monday, January 31, 2011
My shoes came!!!! They're a little tight and I think I'll have to cut a toe off but they're so worth it. The shirt fit like a grandma shirt and I don't have time to go to the mall to return it so I guess I'll just throw it away.

Don't you love that I wore blue and teal together? Chase didn't. I think it makes my red shoes pop even more. That or my pasty Asian legs. Gotta represent.

  1. I love this look!! It's very "Sea Side" cool. That's something I'm going for... but all I have right now is a skirt. This inspires me!

  2. I really like the bright shoes. Sorry your new shoes pinch, and you have a grandma shirt. Maybe instead of throwing it away you can give to a grandma?

  7. Don't throw the shirt out! Give it away or sell it, I'm sure there are plenty of people that would like it.

  17. I agree... don't throw away the shirt. Find someone with a sewing machine and have them take it in (it takes like 2 seconds), cause it's cute. They do a favor for you, you do a favor for them.
    Very cute outfit... I love the shoes!

  42. Love the teal and the blue. And glad to hear you're not really throwing the shirt away ;-). This way you can send it to ME. Although, I admit to getting a huge thrill out of throwing clothes away...you know, clothes that are too damaged and worn to even donate...I feel guilty, and then liberated...and every so often I throw out perfectly almost new underwear because they are SO UNCOMFORTABLE.

    But, uh, what else am I supposed to do with worn underwear? Sell it on the internet? (which is a joke sort of like your throw out joke...but when I have said this to people in real life they look at my horrified...so people don't get things in person either!).

    much love: K
