california gurls

details: blue and white pinstripe ruffle babydoll top (living doll, marshall's), black bow belt (f21), black bloomer shorts (tracy feith for target), white open toe skimmers (payless), hat (h&m), silver bunny necklace (from swap with katrina)

i hope you're not tired of the hat yet...because i most certainly am not! i feel like i can wear it with everything and it instantly looks summer-y. i just got the blouse at marshall's yesterday. i wasn't sure about it at first (it looked tent-like on the hanger), but i really liked it when i tried it on. the shorts are fun too (target!), but when mom saw them she was all concerned because she thought they were literally bloomers.

"I used to wear those under my skirts! Are you sure that isn't underwear?!" - Mom

don't worry mom, they're just bloomer-inspired. it has pockets and a zipper and everything.

i've been putting together a little summer playlist! you know, songs that are upbeat and happy. the kind you can sing along to with your friends when you're driving to the beach. that sort of thing.
