A Slightly Awkward Post

Shorts? Thrifted Shirt? Gap Belt, shoes and purse? Thrifted


Last time I did an EBEW post I had writer's block. This time it happened again. I think I have an excuse though, working outside in this heat wave for 10 hours a day has started to smelt my brain.
What follows is a true story.
Because I was stumped I asked my bestie/co-worker what to write in a post about my mellow yellow shorts. She asked me if the shorts made me feel cheerful. I said no. She asked if they made me feel like the man with the yellow hat from Curious George, except for without the yellow hat and the monkey. I said no. She asked me if they made me feel like I humped sunshine. I said to her that I think I will stick to writing my own blog but you would probably be entertaining on twitter.

Here's a tip. Find friends who are weirder than you.

Hahaha humping sunshine. Based on that comment I could be bff's with your bestie.

Kate said...

I think your bestie needs a blog. ALSO, I think pale blue & yellow were created just so you could wear them. You look BEAUTIFUL and so summery & fresh! I love this.

amanda said...

you are that friend for me :) AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT!!!!

Lindsey N. said...

Haha I LOL'd at that one! She sounds awesome.

I've been looking for a pair of yellow shorts, love yours!

Tell your friend I want to hump her sunshine. Don't tell her that. But do tell me when she joins Twitter. And speaking of sunshine and not humping it, your hair color is so pretty! Keep me away from the dye aisle..

Love it! Your friend sounds hilarious, I would definitely follow her on Twitter.. haha
Great post!

i, too, had some serious writer's block for this current EBEW. fortunately i was able to blame mine on the fact that my brain has been officially shut off while i'm on summer vacation.

by the way, your outfit is fantastic!

Love this look... It's like you stepped off the pages of a J Crew catalog and you're ready to sail your yacht. So summery and a great use of yellow for EBEW! - Katy

Those shorts are SO cute! I hate that when you get writer's block and everything you type seems wrong. It is like when you are getting your period and you pull out everything from your closet and nothing works! LOL

Hahaha! Humped sunshine! Oh man, that just made my day. Please thank your friend for me!

Frannie Pantz said...

Not only did your yellow shorts bring a ray of sunshine to my night, but your friend is a literary genius. It had to be said. ;-)

Hello,

I just found your blog via EBEW. I was curious by the steel caps & read your about me. I know exactly where your coming from ... When I'm not a preppy PhD student & a grubby achaeologist! Ha, ha ... Any who, lovely to 'meet' you.

Savannah said...

haha your friend sounds like a riot! those shorts are pretty awesome, I can't blame her for her train of thought.

The Daily Fashionista said...

Hahaha!!! Humped sunshine?

Well you look lovely!! The colors suit you well.

briannelee said...

Only you can make pleated yellow shorts look cool! Love this look :)

April said...

Ba ha ha! You're too funny! Very cute outfit...those shorts look like they were made for you, you lady with the yellow shorts, you.

Sam said...

That's something typical that would come out of my bestie's mouth too. And many worse sayings that shouldn't be posted online :P

Love this outfit, the shorts look great on you!

eek said...

LOL - your bestie sounds awesome!

I love the mellow yellow outfit though! I am so happy that shorts are making a comeback in the fashion-blog world :)

Kat said...

This outfit is one of my faves so far. I like how you've made a denim shirt looked polished by tucking it in and adding some dark brown accents. Then the shorts are an unexpected pop of colour, but the pleats keep them from looking too casual. Awesomeness all around.

Leah said...

Love the tip! It always makes you feel normal to be around weirder people doesn't it? :)

Please may I? said...

Your friend is slightly crazy, but in a good way mind!!

Loving this look, those shorts are fab, as is the bag.

Sweet Laundry said...

Ok, I'm jealous that you can wear shorts with pleats. I bought a pair of shorts with pleats and when I put them on they were the most unflattering thing you've ever seen. Even more unflattering than humping the sunshine.

joceline said...

Humped sunshine--i just cracked up at work. It reminds me of my friend who asked if I sat on a smurf when I was wearing blue shorts the other day.

Mariel Torres said...

oh how i love denim shirts... best outfit ever!

Emily said...

Hey Jentine,

Despite your writer's block (and I find the idea of being the man in the yellow hat or even humping sunshine hilarious, btw), I think this is a killer post and an amazing outfit! You should definitely submit it on The Wear To Go Girls FB page for the "Look of the Week"!! Check it out here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Wear-to-go-Girls/138631736207424...

All the best.

I absolutely LOVE this outfit! The colors are fantastic together. Believe it or not, this sounds like a conversation I've had with a weird friend or two, before...

Bri said...

Great outfit, this shorts are perfect, and thank you for your funny bit, your writing makes me laugh (because its funny, not anything else, just thought I should make that clear).

WendyB said...

She asked if they made me feel like the man with the yellow hat from Curious George, except for without the yellow hat and the monkey.--- ha ha ha ha! Please have her do a guest post!

Rose said...

You look adorable!

Danielle Celeste Couture said...

Great outfit. This is what I wish my outfit looked like. I kind of had the same idea but went TOO warm with the red. Ugh..live and learn Now I know what I was trying to do.

Sarah Baucom said...

You found those shoes "thrifting"? What a great find, I really want some saddles but I cannot justify the pricey ones at Jcrew. Also, just found your blog and I love it!

Caro said...

Your friend sounds AWESOME. Love this outfit.

Neris / Fashion Fractions said...

Funny story! I really like your outfit, though... Yellow shorts are awesome!

xxx,

Terri said...

Perhaps the friend should be invited to do a guest post!

siLvia said...

I just wanted to say, that I found your blog through Kendi and I absolutely love it! The best part? You live in Hamilton! I live in Toronto. It's cool to just...'know' bloggers that are so close.

Katie said...

Just found your blog through Kendi everyday and I love it. You are adorable!

sartoriography said...

"Find friends who are weirder than you": this is really quite brilliant advice. I'm going to get rid of all my friends right now and go in desperate search for ones weirder than I. I suspect I'll be gone for some time.

Also brilliant? These balling shorts...well, cool shorts. Balling would maybe be for the other (male) half of the species. But you know what I mean. :) Love the chilly yellow with the chambray!

PS: You'd make a very cute monkey!

lisa said...

love it. :)
