blazer: la poule noire vintage
everything else: thifted/vintage

When I was getting dressed this morning, I had a flash back to last July were I was wearing basically the same outfit. Is it coincidence? Or do we really dress in loops? It's fun to look back to see how I have changed. Still high waisted, always quirky, but I sense an air of maturity. My hair is a bit longer (I did cut it again between these two points) and look, a skirt! I don't know where this lady like confidence is streaming from but I can dig it. My boss and I were joking about how tan we've become this summer, there's no avoiding it. I enjoy vitamin D, and I'm not one of those girls who dread being thought as a darker skinned girl (whatever..) the only thing I dread is buying new make up. I just end up having a darker bottle and a lighter bottle of foundation that looks similar to my parents and mix them as summer grows on. Funny thing though is my white genes don't tan as well as my black ones, so I go get some fun time speckled pigmentation that I used to be embarrassed about but now I'm just proud to be so funny looking.

I think that's my takeaway from this year so far. To learn to be comfortable in this awkward skin I'm in.  photo hm3_zps7bc8fb0c.jpg photo hm7_zps04e84df6.jpg photo hm8_zps29302de9.jpg photo hm6_zpsfe0505ef.jpg photo hm9_zps7cd35169.jpg photo hm10_zps2ce9fb01.jpg

  2. Badass outfit! I wish it were cool enough to wear blazers here. I always enjoy looking back over the year to see how elements of my personal style have changed!
