Easy Bee-zy

This outfit is great because it's easy to wear but still looks like I care.  I paired a sunflower print top with a sunflower print sundress and added bee-themed jewelry.

Latrice Motherfucking Royale was at the local Pride festival this year.  Latrice Motherfucking Royale.  Obviously I went.  Obviously I had to find the right thing to wear.  This is what I came up with.

Tank, thrifted; skirt, thrifted; earrings, handmade by me; shoes, Amazon.

This is my interpretation of stars and stripes.  Pride makes me patriotic.

These shoes are fantastic.  They are comfortable and colorful.  You should buy a pair.  Yes, if you purchase them through this link I'll get a commission, but don't you think I deserve it after recommending these shoes?
This might look like shameless shilling, but I consider it a public service announcement.

Enough of me.  Here's some more Pride.

Someone Else's Birthday Suit

Most days I dress for myself.  I've said it before; I'll probably say it again.  I wear what makes me happy whether other people like it or not.  On rare occasions I dress for other people, and this outfit was for Stephen on his birthday.

Sweater, Walmart; dress, Younkers; earrings, gifted (thanks, Sue and Kristin!); necklace, swapped; shoes, Younkers.

On days that are important to Stephen, I try to look normal.  This is what I imagine normal looks like.

It's not a birthday without a birthday cake.  Here is Stephen's.  It's a lemon cake with lemon-lime butter cream frosting.  It's also one of a kind because I didn't write down what I put into it.  Happy birthday, Stephen!

The more time passes between wearing an outfit and blogging about it, the harder it is to describe.  The parts are all still there, but what makes each piece special is how I feel wearing it.  If I don't remember how I felt, it doesn't matter what it looked like.  You know what this means... I don't remember what I felt like wearing this, but this is what I looked like.

Dress,; sweater, Walmart; shoes, Target; necklace, gifted (thanks, Tracey!); earrings, swapped.

One thing I haven't forgotten is how touched I was that my friend and coworker Tracey saw this necklace and thought of me.  She's right- it's a color palette I love.

Accessory detail, shoe detail, and we're done!  This blogging thing is like riding a bike.  I sometimes forget how and crash.

Boom Boom Pow

Hi!  Is anyone still out there?  It's been so long since I posted, I've almost forgotten how.  Let's give it a try. 

I wore this quite a while ago, but I loved it enough to dig through my photos to find these.  This outfit is supposed to be science-themed.  The national summer reading program theme is "Fizz Boom Science," but this outfit delivers more boom boom pow.

Shirt, thrifted; skirt, Target; belt, thrifted; shoes, Youkners; earrings, Claire's; necklace, handmade by me; glasses, Costco.

This necklace is my knockoff of the Tyrannosaurus rex necklace by Tatty Devine.  Do you have an extra $195 sitting around?  If so, go buy the original (or buy one for me).  If not, check out my tutorial.

This was an outfit worth saving.  I felt fierce and, I'm sure, blinded more than a few with science.

Or maybe with my boom boom pow.
