Outfit August, day 17: pom-poms and unicorns

After my awesome day of merriment on Saturday, the birthday festivities continued with brunch on Sunday. I like having celebrations spread out across an entire weekend so that I get a chance to see as many friends as possible, and it was lovely to see a few friends on Sunday who hadn’t been free the day before.

Of course, I went all out rainbow-pink-colorful, because why not?

I doubt it.)

Even though I feel like I’ve lived in the Boston area forever, and sometimes I get terrible wanderlust, I still enjoy a good day of romping around my own city and noticing as many quirky and fun details as I can.

#FatshionFebruary, day 15: Cuteness as self-care

Sometimes self-care involves wearing the most comfortable clothing possible (i.e., sweatpants and a t-shirt), not bothering with makeup, and not giving a shit about how I look. Other times, it entails playing dress-up to cheer myself up.

Saturday was one of the times. I went for the boldest, brightest, cupcakey-est outfit I could come up with. And yes, I wore it to sit around the house reading a book and playing around on the internet.

Dress and leggings: Domino Dollhouse, shoes: Sugar Shoes via eBay, sweater: ASOS (straight size 14), bow: The Velvet Village, necklace: Kuma Crafts, earrings and rose ring: Claire’s, pink bangles: Deb Shops, rainbow bangle and rhinestone wristband: So Good, Lucite ring: H&M, hot pink eyeshadow: Manic Panic, Lisa Frank tote bag: gizmo2choco
