My Outfit Monday: Shorts, tights and facial injuries
Remember how I said all the girls in South Korea -- ALL THE GIRLS -- were wearing shorts and black tights? Even at the summer, on the beach, or in the winter, in extreme cold temperatures? Maybe it was subliminally implanted into my visual cortex, but I had to try it this weekend.
Here I am at the Ybor City St. Patrick's Day parade Saturday. I was super excited to score that massive strand of beads. This was moments before I got CLOCKED in one side the face with a set of beads, then CLOCKED in the other side of the face with yet another. I was seconds from breaking into a massive Ugly Cry, but I decided to make a sharp left and laugh instead. Fortunately, there is no bruising.
Anyway. The black shorts and green top are from Old Navy. It's all a little hard to see in this pic, what with my stockpile of cheapo beads, so check them out at the links. The tights are a floral pattern I've had forever, paired with Steve Madden shooties. I wore these out for dinner with beleaguered shootie fan Deal Diva Emily the other night, who promptly launched into a rage when she saw them. "YOU'RE WEARING SHOOTIES!" she said. "NO ONE EVER CALLED YOU ANY NAMES." Well, feel free, folks. For Emily's sake.
Would you do the tights and shorts look? I honestly loved it. It felt sassy yet comfortable. I didn't have to worry about my vampire legs hanging out or my inseam creeping up because I didn't do enough thigh abductors at the gym this month. I'm gonna stock up on some major tights and do this again.
Hope you all had fun on St. Pat's and made it home with little bead-related injury. It's tough out there.
