These pictures kinda make me giggle cause I look like such a fashion blogger. Surprisingly, I'm not even talking about my posed demure sideways glance... I'm talking about the fact that I jumped in front of a graffitti wall and posed it out. Graffitti walls attract fashion bloggers like Uggs and sweat pants attract college girls .
The pin/flower hair clip has also made the fashion blog rounds. I got it back in January at h&m and then I saw it so often on fashion blogs that it was overkill for me. But I'm old-school Dutch and I paid full-price for this thing so I had to wear it... eventually. Kansas Couture often wears flower pins in her hair like so, and she looks so freaking adorable, I wanted to try it. Though, at 5'11, I think I'm above the 'adorable' cut-off. I haven't been called adorable since I was 7. Actually, even then I wasn't adorable because my mom hated me and gave me pink glasses and a bowl-cut. Yes, it was hard being the immigrant child with big-a$$ glasses and a boy's haircut... I'm not bitter... Wow, veering off topic... Seriously, my mom does love me, her idea of a chic haircut was just not popular in my grade 2 class.
I'm totally rambling because I'm tired but I just want to talk about my shoes for a minute. I'm going to Europe soon (more details later) and my priority was getting a pair of cute sandals with support because I'll be walking a lot and regular flats do a number on your back and soles. Finding cute and sensible sandals is surprisingly hard. That's why I'm so delighted with these... They're a bit more trendy than I wanted (though not like 'whaaaa!!! I'm a crazy gladiator sandal!'), but the colour goes with everything and they are very comfortable Hushpuppies. Yeah! Hushpuppies!
