Sunday Styles no. 31


Holy hotness, batman. Temps be risin' out there! Luckily, today isn't nearly as scorching as yesterday was, but summer arriving and it getting hot out was inevitable. With that in mind, today's Sunday styles is all about staying cool amongst other things.

Shorts & sheer shirts are a go-to for me when it gets warmer and high-waisted short shorts ARE . MY .  JAM! I can't get enough of them. Leg-lengthening and waist shrinking in one little package. What's not to like? (I say that now. Wait till I I sit down for a large meal. I have a feeling my "this is great!" pop tune will change to a "I can't breathe" aria...I guess I could always stand up while I'm eating.)

Moving along, another thing I play with is patterns. I was never good at mixing lots of patterns. The "I just went ransacking through the garment district" gypsy fabric fashion style was always a fail for me. Don't get my wrong, there are lots of folks that can rock it. Maybe I'm playing it safe, but I like to mix one pattern with a solid. Red, white, and black always work well together too. So, there ya have it. Additionally, when your resting face can sometimes look bitchy (especially when I wear sunglasses, if I'm zoning out, I often look like I'm scowling or grossly uninteresting in anything you're saying), patterns are a great help.

Playful patterns alleviate bitchy face by saying, "hey, how bitchy could I possibly be? Look at these polka dots?! Aren't we having a good time?!" When I look extra bitchy (i.e. tired, sunglassed, and hungry), I reach for my sweater with the little sunglasses all over it. (To which I hope passers-by think, "well, she looks like a real jerk, but look at that super-fun sweater. I bet she's a good time afterall.")

...maybe it's all in my head.

Aaaaanyway, just a little bit of fun on this Sunday. Hope you're all having a restful day. I can't believe it's almost Monday again. Yeeeeeesh! Time. What's up with it going so quickly on weekends and dragging on weekdays? So lame.

Alright! Off I go to enjoy the warm, dry, desert-ness of LA with Charlesband & Merl! Have a great day! xo!
