Fashion Therapy - Rock the Casbah

The way of the pant took a turn into jeans-and-tee-town this morning. I rarely wear actual blue denim jeans; I like my black and gray pairs much, much more. These are a cheap pair a few sizes too big, found at Crossroads. They are nice and comfy, but it's hard to ignore the fact that cuffed anything and short legs equals stumpy.

I may not be bold enough yet to don a turban on my head, but on my shirt, yes. It's a cool brown and super soft, and you can't tell but the sleeves are longer than regular t's, which I love.

I love the creepy bayou feel it gives everything. Oh how I love Southern stereotypes—according to wikipedia it gives a "gothic" appearance to the landscape and loves southern cypress and live oak, which also grow all up in this chunk of the West Coast, hrmm...

4 Things That Made Me Yay Today
♥ this year's warmest, balmiest, most beautiful dusk so far ♥ pepperoni pizza ♥ pleasant interactions with practically every stranger I encountered, and several really really good ones, which is unusual and absolutely wonderful ♥ shopping successes exceeded all expectations today: on my lunch break I thrifted the cutest pink shoes, picture frames & sweater, and after work, while walking through the aforementioned lovely evening I found the greatest boots at uo that scanned on sale, as well as getting a $48 cardigan for $4.99 because "oh well, it's not in the system." Sometimes the system does work in our favor!
