So, I mentioned in my last post that April from So, Yeah...So was in town to pick up her friend from the airport. Before we hit up the mall and I decided to give harem pants a go, we went to Ikea. And April offered to take my outfit photo. And I cannot be expected to do anything remotely normal in front of a camera, particularly when there are curious shoppers milling around behind me. I take that back, the first pose was a relatively normal style blogger-y pose. But the second one? I don't even know.
I was just glad that it was finally not so damn hot that I could wear my blazer. I knew we'd be spending the day indoors and I get cold in air conditioning. Plus, you know, I'm addicted to blazers. Maybe you heard about that satire show called Portlandia? Well, they did this bit called "Put a Bird on It" which was making fun of how ubiquitous birds are getting in hipster design. My version of that might be "Put a Blazer on It" because that's how I feel about most of my outfits.
Lastly, remember how I said I need to start being better about wearing lipstick? Well, I have been. But I forgot to reapply for the shot I took in the dressing room at Urban Outfitters (I tried on a pair of purple leggings, Don't Ask) and I keep looking at this picture thinking about how naked my lips look. But you can see my pretty earrings, so it's all good!
