tie your mother down

On Monday, I had an Important Meeting to attend. Accordingly, I was forced to play a little game I like to call "Dress Up Like You're a Fully Formed Human Girl With More Than a Passing Interest in Personal Style!"

It's been so hot lately, and I've been spending so much time mopping up cat barf (pet-sitting, you are a cruel mistress) that I've kinda been letting things go to shit around here, so it was nice to have an excuse to actually plan an outfit for once. Anyways, obviously, I decided that tastefully wrinkled tie-dye was the way to go!! In the end, it was a whole lotta hoopla for a rendezvous that lasted all of ten minutes. But I think I nailed it!

Finally found some sunglasses!

P.S. Please check out my new shades! They kinda make me feel like a goof and they kinda don't stay on my face. But I'm also kiiinda in love! I have been sans sunnies since some time in April when my last pair of fake Clubasters ate it in the bottom of my purse, and no, I have no idea how I've survived summer thus far without my retinas frying like bacon...

great look siri! are those the amazing h&m pants?
recently i almost decided (inspired by you) to wear a silk leopard print blouse to an interview. at last minute, i bailed on it due to lack of courage. but turns out (knowing those people now) it could have done nothing but even help my chances :) you never know!

Love the sunnies! I always always lose mine.... Except for the stupidly cheap pair of course, the expensive ones are probably spread across the whole of the UK by now :(

The pants are indeed from H&M, only I bought them at Buffalo Exchange and they don't seem to be in stores anymore (otherwise I would own five more pairs!)

Lydia said...

Amazingness, your outfit is so put together and yet effortless. Andddddd Those sunglasses are the sweetest cat eyes I've seen since Alexander Wang. I'd like 10 pairs please!

Love the tie dye. I've been experimenting with tie dye lately (like actually dying stuff, I mean). I did a DIY blog post yesterday on how to ombre dye a caftan, in fact. Check it out! http://blog.nickiefrye.com

Whoa Nickie that caftan looks amazing! I'm definitely going to mess around with tie dye when I go home this summer.

Sandie, unfortunately the sunglasses are just some no-name brand from Buffalo Exchange. I don't know if there's one in/near where you live, but thy all tend to get some of the same stock as far as I can tell.
