Flattery Will Get You as Far as the Bus Stop

outfit deets: boots - vintage // socks - American Apparel // tights - H&M // shorts - vintage // turtleneck - H&M // accessories - vintage

So I've said this before when I wore these shorts the first time here, but I don't think they are really doing me any favours in the figure department and yet somehow I still love them. I've lost some inches since the last time I wore them so I feel like they look better now than they did in the summer but the pleats on the waist work to make a silhouette that I'm not used to wearing. In any case, I am still pretty in love with the feel of this outfit. Grandma meets 1950's housewife on the weekend meets jockey? haha!

Yesterday I went thrift shopping for the first time in too long! School has overwhelmed me a little this semester so I have had no time for it, plus all my thrifting buddies are gone - so it just hasn't happend for me pretty well since I started school again in September. Probably a record. Anyway, I went yesterday and walked away with a new polo tee, a gorgeous floaty green dress, the most amazing cape and a comfy cozy oversized cardi! What a haul. The green dress has even pushed another dress out of the running to be one of my Birthday dresses! :) Now I just gotta make sure I get it cleaned before Tuesday.

Alright guys, back to studying physics on a Friday night (I know you're jealous).
