The cashier at the grocery store wished me a 'happy spring break' today.
and I'm like DO I LOOK LIKE I AM IN COLLEGE TO YOU BECAUSE I AM AN ADULT WITH A JOB AND I AM NOT LIVING IN FANTASY SPRING BREAK HAPPY WORLD ACTUALLY I HAVE TO GO INTO WORK FOR THE NEXT WEEK INSTEAD OF GETTING HAMMERED ON AN ISLAND SO TAKE YOUR STUPID SPRING BREAK AND
but jk I just smiled and took my enchilada seasoning & green pepper in a plastic bag because I like to kill the environment that I never get to go into anyways so thankyouverymuch.
Then I made shrimp tacos with enchilada powder b/c I like it better than taco powder and watched House of Cards and felt sorry for myself because one of my sisters is in Puerto Rico and the other one is in Prague and basically I hate my life and am contemplating whoring myself out to a politician for a hefty sum of pocket change
but jk but maybe but jk
I promise there was a point in this blog post here somewhere . ..
Oh! Bermuda shorts.
Or culottes... right? That's still a word, I think.
either way, as a body-conscious female uncomfortable with the showing of skin in general and prone to varicose veins, crocodile crack marks & perpetual leg stubble, I'm kind of into these.
|shorts: derek lam for kohls, shirt: velvet, jacket: h&m, shoes: windsor smith|
In fact, to be completely honest, for all of my caps-lock whining, I'm incredibly grateful for the luxury of not showing my un-sunkissed & see-through body for several months to come.
I'd also be comfortable with for-ever.
I kind of like having my obnoxiously long shorts (of sorts) and incredibly lengthy jacket to do double cover-up duty.
I mean, we all have our seasonal hang-ups, right? Up until this year, I wouldn't wear turtlenecks.
And sometimes I just flat-out refuse to wear socks,
So, not wanting to show skin is probably the least of my worries.
What about you? Any season style qualms? Any signature summer pieces you refuse to wear?
