Over-Exposure


I'm gonna get all negative up in here for a moment. Things I don't like about wearing jean shorts: attention drawn to the thigh region, the way they make my butt look, and.... I generally don't look good in them ok! Things I don't like about wearing this shirt: mainly just the awkward length otherwise I love the shirt. Well I have found a use for both! The awkward length of the shirt covers up all the things I dislike about jean shorts! Win Win.... Way too over-exposed photos.... Lose Lose

shirt - ruche
vest - thrifted
shorts - joe fresh
sandals - uo

  3. Ohh I really like this look, it's so pretty! The floral top looks great with that neat vest and jean shorts. It's so nice when one can combine things they didn't think were working and find a way it looks good

  4. Hello. I just found your website via monkeyface. I can't believe you take your own photography! It is just gorgeous ... You have inspired me to take my camera & tripod out into the big wide world.
    Your newest follower.

  9. I love how you have done your hair, and the print on that blouse is adorable! This is such a cute outfit. I'm totally with you on jean shorts as well, they do nothing for my legs, plus all my male friends despise them - weird, huh?

    I love the over exposure on the photos, it makes it looks ridiculously summery, so much prettier than the grey day I'm having... xoxo

  11. WHOA re: your bun braid!!!!! Freaking out! That's me over here. Also I thought when you said you were going to get negative that that was photography pun but then you went and hated on your shorts so never mind. I like these photos and your legs, for what it be worth. ;)

  15. Shy!!! You are so cute. Love those glasses. :) I want that shirt, and I think shorts look great on you. I'm still so sad that we didn't get to meet while you were in Calgary.

  17. i'm not much a shorts person either.. until it gets absurdly hot, then i don't care haha.. i do love the shorts and long(ish) sleeve shirt combo though, i think it looks adorable!

    i can't even bring myself to look at the price of gas when i'm filling up my tank. it's disgusting. and of course the prices have to sky rocket for summer when people have tiiiime to go on road trips and whatnot.

    ugh. when gas stops being obnoxious or i win the lottery- road tripping across canada is definitely on my list :)

  21. I'm pretty sure every girl wages war (in words at least) on her own thighs once in a while. It's our right as women. True story. I love you in shorts though. You look springy. Have a great weekend. XO
