23.6.10

he says I rather switch with you, you don't now hard it is to work from 9-5.

Hi friends! Let's all be a big cliche and make song lyrics our post titles, MMMKAY?! But I actually love this song and I'm going to be posting my playlist soon because I rather like it and I want to share my awesome music taste. (That was a joke. Okay, not very funny. But the point is I wasn't serious. SO GIVE ME A BREAK. OKAY?! JEEZ. Phew, sorry to lose my temper...)

Super quick post! This formulates my "go-to" outfit for the summer. I've probably worn it here before (INTENSE STAL- ahem - FOLLOWERS TELL ME IF THIS IS SO). The weather's been a little wonky, but it was a beautiful sunny day this very day so yay! (please, do applaud my fantastic rhymes). You'll be seeing more of this dress (well, it's actually a long vintage skirt) very soon (wink wink hint hint nudge nudge - my math teacher says this. OH NO. QUICK. MATH GO AWAY.)

I love the summer, but, at the same time, it also accentuates my lameness/ laziness/ lackness, er, anyways, i'll just go with et cetera, et cetera... There's this weird aura of WOW! DREAMS WILL COME TRUE THIS SUMMER! I'm going to fall in love and get tan and go to the beach and lose weight and travel to europe and sing kumbya by the campfire (actually, for the record, my summer plan is more like "aw yeee, i'm going to do cool stuff that have been accumulating throughout the year but OH SNAP what was that cool stuff again? whatever, Imma still do cool stuff") and somehow it gets pushed aside. It's ironic how summer days are the longest (I mean, in terms of sunlight) yet they GO BY SO QUICKLY.

For the record, I do have lazy bum tendancies, but I'm working on it. So far, I've been downtown multiple times, I've hemmed and altered four dresses, I've done a portrait for my papa for father's day, I've taken a thousand pictures (LITERALLY), I've done a messed up party cat collage which I actually like and I'll post, and I'm working on these shorts. WOW. Let's brag about our not so great accomplishments that make us feel good internally together shall we!

(brag fest time!) WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN UP TO THIS SUMMER?
Slash WHAT DO YOU PLAN ON DOING?

I've actually been waking up with a mental agenda (organized, eh eh), so hopefully there'll be some awesome-ness to come!

(Oh and P.S. I'll post these AWESOME projects of mine stat! (emphasis on "awesome" emphasizes how it's not, in fact, all that awesome))
(P.P.S. This is the outfit I wore in my vlog. Slash on the same day I made my vlog. I made my vlog quite a few days ago. It's freaking 20 minutes long, so I'll have to try to cut it down or something. MAAAN. But DON'T YA WORRY, I don't have a 99% in media for nothing. (That's a lie. I don't have a 99%.) (I don't actually know what I have, but I'm pretty confident it's not a 99%)).

ALL IN ALL. Summer has been a little lazy but, HEY, it's summer and that's allowed and I don't feel too guilty for not being a "beach bum" or having a "hot summer fling" (thanks for the tips though, Seventeen! I WILL find myself a hottie and maybe practise some flirting techniques and look hot in my bikini next time I have a fun day of hottie hunting at the beach with my babes! Oh and I WILL tan with a heart shaped sticker so I have a cute heart shaped tan. Yes, yes! THANK YOU.)

Latah gatah.

I work all the time, so my summer days are spent working hard and then on weekends i go somewhere fun. I actually want school to come. At least then I get to go to parties and coffee dates and such.

I want that shirt. Send it over ;) haha. It's incredibly pretty though, especially over the skirt.

LyddieGal said...

Yes, summers have so much potential at the start, and then fly away so quickly!

This summer I need to go for more walks with my dog -- I have a bichon too!

I love your floral statement necklace, it's so bright and cheery!

Chic on the Cheap

Suprisingly I've never posted a song lyric as a title. 8D but I did come across this amazing song from the 60s:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p6k3BEU1aQM

IT MAKES ME WANT TO DANCE. HARD. D8<<

Anyway, cool skirt. It makes me think of polly pockets (which are cool, no worries).

Nope, I haven't seen that outfit before.
And as a stal--UH, I MEAN, follower of yours...this is a little odd!

Aw. Cute outfit! I love the colors on your skin tone. (Wow, that's creepy. O.O Oh well.)

I have to work full-time this summer. EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWW. :( I'm rather unhappy about this. But I suppose money = fun (when I'm not working) so I guess things will turn out.
