Peas on Earth.. or At Least on a Skirt

Today's weather was so sweltering at 31 degrees Celsius (that's 87.8 degrees Fahrenheits for all you Americans - I spent a whole minute converting it for you!!). Therefore, I was cooped inside my house for the majority of the day :(. Anyways, I stuck with a simple outfit because with any more layers, I would have melted!



I don't know why I wore my pink skirt underneath.. but I did. It made it more poufy. Maybe. Actually, no.. I wore it because it makes it fun to play with it.

(Yellow dress - California $15, Peas skirt - Thrifted $5, Pink skirt (underneath) - Homemade, Shoes - Pacific Mall $15)


My attempt at a jumping shot. The flash wouldn't correspond to my jumps. The one time it actually did work, I was jokingly expressing my anger towards the camera. Oh darn..


(Ring - Forever 21 $6, Blue Bracelet - Suzy Sheer $3, Yellow beads - Claire's $1, Yellow Bangle - Claire's $4, Orange Bracelet - H&M $6, Earrings - Flea Market $1, Bow Tie - Claire's $3)

Skirt Pattern:

I have a thing for crazy and unconventional patterns - I think they can make any outfit more fun! Unfortunately, most stores don't sell outfits with "crazy" patterns outside of florals and polka dots. In result, I've resulted to buying my own fabrics and sewing them..

It's so vibrant, loud, and fun! I'm making it into a puffy skirt.

Ronald Macdonald and friends (does anyone know their names?). I'm not a fatty, I promise! This pattern just made me giggle and I wanted it. It will be a puffy skirt (same as the pink one I'm wearing - which you can barely see..)

Monsters and aliens! This made my athletic banquet dress. When people asked me what my dress would look like, it was rather humorous.
People: "What does your dress look like ?!"
Me: "Um. I sewed it. It has monsters.. and aliens on it."
People: "Oh. Um.. Cool!"
Good times!

Fun fabrics always seem to remind me of Katy Perry. I think that she can rock crazy, unconventional looks like no other!

Alright people, nothing left to say but thank you once again. Your comments are so nice and they really keep me stoked ! Anyways, I've linked all of my fabulous commenters and I'd love if you'd link me too! :)

Okay, well peas out (pun totally intended. Pretend it's funny). Hope you ladies and lads are having great, summery (but not unbearable!) weather!

Yeah...well thanks for the good wishes on our summer! Sadly my summer is terrible for now because it wont stop raining and it will keep raining until sunday! Anyway, once again you manage to pull off a completely original ensemble!! You can sew?! I really want to learn to sew, that way I can add cooler designs to my clothes or make new ones! I think you're the absolute coolest 15 year old girl ever just because of your wardrobe and personality! Thank goodness you aren't like the rest of the girls that only wear A&F and Hollister and A&E!!

hey friend. Thanks for the comment. I LOVE ice caps. I know it's horrible, but I probably have like five a week! Watch, by the end of the summer, and after all my midnight Tim's runs I'll be about five hundred pounds! Well, hopefully not actually... :D

I absolutely love that skirt. The print is fabulous. I gotta say, I'm also a giant fan of fabulously random prints, and I love that when you cease to find epic peices like that is store, you just make it. So much more fun. I will definitely have to do that more often. That McD's print makes my life. Love it!

Link it up?
