wishy washy

Hat: Modcloth
Shirt: thrifted
Shorts: thrifted and reconstructed trousers
tights: kohls
leggings under tights: target
boots: thrifted and SOLD through etsy! yay!
bag: target

That's right, it snowstormed again. March is almost over and there is no end in sight to the cold miserable weather. So this week I will rock hats and scarves and refuse to look at everyone else's pleasant weathered, lightly clad blogs.

Also, these photos looked great on the camera and on the computer when they imported, but now that they're uploaded to the blog they look all weird and blurry like they're under water or something. I have no idea why or how to fix it, but unfortunately you get a display of 1/2 quality wishy washy photos. whatever, could've been worse. at least they're visible.

also also, I was listening to my laftfm radio today whilst grading and The Rutles started playing. I never looked this up nor added it to my library, so it was quite the surprise and made my day. If you're unfamiliar, The Rutles were a mock group in a mockumentary of The Beatles. it's pretty great. Think Monty Pythonish humour, and all good music based. it's a lot of fun- check it out!


  1. What? NO GREEN? I can't believe it's you over there.

    I love these shorts so much. That's pretty much it.

    And you are adorable.

  2. Ugh, I'm so with you on not reading those bloggers in CA or AZ. Curse them and their sunshine!

    You should do some tutorials about how you remake clothes. Seriously, how did you do those shorts? They are sweet!

    North Meets South

  3. bshhhh this is not tutorial worthy. it's super ghetto. I just cut them to the knee, rolled them up three times and hand stitched the sides. I would be so embarrassed to post that for all those real see.

  4. Aw you look so happy in this super cute outfit. I especially love that you hemmed those trousers! They look great.

    I also really love that lip color on you! Lately I've been really obsessed with lipsticks.

  6. whaaat? A snow storm, OK that's not just nice -snow be gone. On the bright side though you look gorgeous, that outfit is so adorable. Happy almost weekend hun. xx veronika

  7. Those tights are so, so cute.

    Also, we wanted to let you know that we awarded you the "Versatile Blogger Award"! We love your blog! You can read about it here:

  8. If you upload directly to blogger, the photos usually end up being distorted. How about try Flickr or something instead? I find it usually keeps the quality of the photos!

    Anyways, totally love the shorts on you! They are adorable and would be soooo cute in the summertime!

  9. Your boots rock! I wish I would have known about them sooner and perhaps they could have been mine.

    I never thought to thrift trousers and turn them into shorts.... the legs never fit right but I adore the pleated, high waisted vintage style. I am totally stealing this idea.

  10. I love your shorts, they're such a great colour :)

  11. Your shorts are amazing! Actually, this whole outfit is quite lovely. It is still very cold here too, so I'm glad to still see some snowy weather inspiration. ^_^

  12. gorgeous outfit, love those shorts!

  13. Lovely shorts...I love them with the tights. Adorable. It is definitely snowing here as well. Where is spring?

  14. This outfit is so adorable - you almost make me happy winter is here to stay in Chicago for at least another month! Ha :)

    Just (happily) came across your blog, looking forward to posts to come!
