flowers in the attic

 these might as well be "boots with the fur" cause that's how hot it was wearing them.
 haven't busted out this little bad boy in awhile. when i went to fill it i remembered why. my new huge wallet doesn't fit in it's tiny little body. credit cards/id loosely floating. begging to be lost.
 no, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. yes, the turquoise ring is turning my finger gangrene. cheap rings= green digits. i've come to terms with it.
aaaand we're back. as promised, i cultivated my tan with an awesome uva ray filled weekend. complete with taxi rides on a foam floaty around the pool, super spiked fruit punch, a plethora of tiny dogs, and diving contests. and......a 5 course meal from domino's. pasta in a bread bowl and all. oh, holiday weekends, how i love thee. these pics were taken mid sweat-stache status in the super hot hot heat that mysteriously appeared out of nowhere. i cut literally 6 feet off this floral number----it was a serious 19 kids and counting ankle grazing length---one of the more hideously unflattering pieces i own. no wonder it was a rogue lone soldier at a 75% off sale. it sat gathering ankle length dust until one day i got around to taking it to the tailor----who proceeded to make it a crop top. well, not quite but lets just say i can't lift my arms or bend down while wearing it. and i have no idea why i'm wearing over the knee boots in 80 degree heat. it was a very bad call. learn from my mistake. unless you want a sweat-stache of your very own. hope you all enjoyed your weekend. back to the grind. cheers to it not being monday!

  13. paint a coat of clear nail polish on the inside of all your cheap rings—best trick ever! works every time.

  14. I love that print on that dress and that pompom you are wearing on your wrist haha! :)

  15. Hahahaha. I am totally guilty of doing that exact same thing with dresses that are convent-worthy in length! At least you had the decency to take it to a tailor... I typically just chop-shop them into some awkward uneven length and just pray that no one notices the horrible butchering job I performed. Love the floral pattern on your dress!

  17. Ha! I'm glad you changed the dress from Little House on the Prairie to look at this little number. As for the rings, maybe you should try clear nail polish. It usually does the trick for me!

  19. Awh, the dreaded sweat stache! in this heat, it's nearly unnavoidable and it really makes me want to avoid makeup all together because not even thirty minutes after application, my face is melting. Literally. Not attractive. But no signs of meltage on your pretty face as far as I can see! I love your straw hat paired with that floral printtt aand the ring on your right ring finger..I waaaant.

  39. I own bags like that, and regardless how much I love them, I cannot manage to get a smaller wallet. So my mini-bags-that-aren't-clutches stay brandnew as well ..

    Love the dress and the boots!

  43. 19 kids??? is that a mesure unit??? hahahahahaha (in Spain, when you laugh a lot, you say "i'm breaking my ass!!"="me parto el culo!"). Sooo nice your so-cut-and-sexy-but-useless-for-festivals dress!! You can fix the lack of lifting arms by wearing like leggins or tights? (which I guess you wouldn't mind to wear right now, if you can breathe and stay alive with that looong boots, why not with tights?? I CHALLENGE YOU!!)

    WAAAAAA, your hair is getting more amazing in each post!!

    Shaaa la la la laaaaa

  45. That dress looks good on you and reminds me I have an awkward length potato sack Phillip Lim sale dress that needs to be tailored. And it was actually HOT for the 4th which was a nice surprise because every time I have been down there (even last August) it has been freaky cold. Not that I mind, living in 118 degree weather. I want the gangrene ring.
