Here Comes the Summer
I've started to realize that my style is a lot more "simple" than a lot of other bloggers. I still really like loud music and bright colours, but somehow that doesn't really translate into dyeing my hair 8 different colours and piling on the jewelry. The grungier side of me just really cares about comfort more than everything else, and you'll never see me slipping on some sunglasses and 4 inch heels just to take outfit photos in. This is just actually what I wear! The floral sleeveless shirt is a total 90s grunge piece, and I'm happy to pair it with a comfy pair of denim shorts.
The cardigan is just a basic one from American Apparel but it has a MERMAID on the back, which was hand-screenprinted and kindly sent to me by Marty May on Etsy. Isn't it the coolest thing ever?
I've been dying for a pair of 70s steez Kork-Ease platforms, but they are impossible to find (and also expensive) so I settled on these flatform substitutes from Lucky Brand. It'll be fun to stomp around this summer, a few inches taller than usual!
On another note, can't you just smell the summer in these photos? I'm wearing shorts! And sandals! It's exciting! But also weird! Climate change, what?!
