OOTD: Days of Summer
You can tell a tomboy from the clothes she wears but also from the whiskey she drinks to the magazines she reads. Style is more than just fashion, that’s why I’m shifting some emphasis from style, and moving a little more towards lifestyle. I’ll be regularly posting about fashion, health, fitness, food, travel, beauty and life, in general. Having said that, this remains a blog about the lifestyle of a lifetime tomboy. So here’s my first OOTD post since the renovations, which proves that while the site design may have changed, I certainly have not.
I thought by the time I’d be back, fall would be too but that’s not the case at all. Indian summer is here in full force and doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon. It’s been humid and warm and even feels more like summer than ever. I can’t help but think of all the kids that just finished their first week of school. I don’t want to imagine how that first week went; sweating on a plastic chair in a room filled with 25-30 other sweaty kids, hands propping up heads gazing out the window and imagining frolicking in the sun, in the grass, perhaps a pool (things that were only too real a mere week ago). Poor bastards.
I’ve finished school. So with that freedom, and I will withhold my nee-ner nee-ner nee-ners, I will enjoy however many days of heat we have left. And there’s no better way to play in the sun than dressed like a child. This little boys t-shirt featuring a hot wheels car has been cropped (slightly, it was already super short since it probably belonged to an 8 year old before me). I’ve owned it for three years and still every summer it becomes one of my favourite peices again. It’s youthful, fun, and easy to wear; exactly what I want when I’m trying to enjoy the last few days of summer. I’ve tried to add a slight edge with my cut offs and docs because I don’t want a bully trying to hustle me for my lunch money.
OUTFIT: levi shorts (vintage), T-shirt (vintage/black market), boots (Dr. Martens), Sunnies (Venice Beach boardwalk), sorbet (raspberry/vegan)
