a (very short) list of things i didn't know

le outfit:
blue balloon top: Romeo and Juliet:: cardi: GAP, thrifted::
jeggings: Target:: bow wedges: Urban Outfitters::
purse: Laura Ashley

1. Balloon tops can make for flattering pieces, if you rein the volume in a bit with a fitted cardigan.
2. Curling my hair dresses up this blunt bang a lot. 
3 Flowers grow, without any supervision or care, even in my weed-ridden yard.

Thanks very much for the affirmation that I, indeed, am not a bully, and that some people should just grow up. I was going to validate my non-bully-ness with a shopping celebration yesterday, but I somehow ate something or touched something that caused me to break out in hives. I had to take anti-histamines, which in turn, made me all groggy, and I ended up asleep on my couch all day. 

But the deprivation of any form of celebrating is making me cranky, so I'm gonna shop today. Laura needs some new shoes. Have a lovely weekend!

  7. I must try wearing a cardigan with the balloon top I have I find it is too flowy so I can see how this would help. Woot celebratory non bully shopping you should do a haul post when your done. So sorry about your hives hope your feeling better!

  9. So, did you get some new shoes? Hmm? BIG fan of the curl in your hair. Your hair is gorgeous straight as well, but I love how this looks. Great balloon shirt. I'm afraid of them. But I might try one now.

  11. curling hair when you have blunt bangs looks great on you! I think it adds volume especially when the bangs get a bit oily after a few days. I agree about the balloon tops being flattering too- keeping everything else fitted is a good idea! :)

  20. I love your hair, nothing beats a gentle wave in your hair! You look pretty! The color of the flower from your yard is so beautiful, why don't more things come in that color? I know how you feel about people, I hate being mean but some people just really tick me off.

  31. I like anything bubble shape, tops and skirts. They are the most comfortable things to wear. Electric blue and white is the perfect color combo. Looks great with simple accessorizing. Sometimes less is more! Your bangs and curls are making me shout c-u-t-e!
