Outfit Post: 6/23/12

Shirt: Thrifted (Self Esteem) — Jeans: Thrifted — Camisole: Old Navy — Socks: Gift — Oxfords: Payless — Amethyst necklace: Thrifted — Sea Life Necklace: Self-assembled — Bangle: World Market — Earrings: Gift from Katie! — Ring: Monterey Bay Aquarium

Heyyy, weekend outfit! Despite the cooler temperatures on Saturday, I ended up a bit warm, but whatever. The fact that I could merely LOOK at black jeans without immediately breaking out into a sweat was a nice change of pace.

Besides, it gave me a chance to work in my manatee socks.

Sock interlude:


Sock interlude over.

Continuing the theme of aquatic life, check out the newest incarnation of my jellyfish necklace! Remember how last time I wore it I mentioned that I’d lost the previous keychain I’d been planning to necklace-ify? (Of course you do.) Well, I found it! It was from the Maui Ocean Center, which I visited roughly a million billion years ago, and somehow it ended up in a box full of memorabilia from Germany. You know, na klar. So anyway, I liberated these two rays from their trappings and now they’re allllll friends!

Despite the hours and hours I spent playing Odell Down Under as a child, I can’t quite identify our new friends. The brown one looks like a regular old stingray, but the blue guy? Heck if I know. Some sort of inverted bluespotted stingray? A manta ray with the pox? Perhaps the Maui Ocean Center took some artistic liberties. (How dare they.)

I…also wore some other stuff. And things. You may have noticed that I’m not entirely at my most articulate today, but what else is new? I think it’s about time I had a vacation. Thank goodness I have one coming up! I’m leaving next Tuesday after work to go visit my mumsey over the 4th of July, and I can’t even tell you guys how much I’m looking forward to it. Mom! Hanging around the house! A possible visit to the King Tut Exhibit in Seattle! Plus lots of immodest ice cream cones and barbecue and snuggling with tiny doggies. This trip is long overdue, I tells ya.

Have you taken a vacation lately? Do you have one coming up? In clothes-related talk, do you like this purple plaid as much as I do?

  1. Are these immodest ice cream cones in the Seattle area? I will be there in August for Geek Girl Con, and I am very excited! I also recently found out the diner that was used for the Double R in Twin Peaks is only about 40 minutes away from Seattle, so for sure I’ll be checking that out too. I also have the King Tut exhibit on my list, along with 87 other things I’m not sure I’ll actually be able to get to while I’m there.

      Welllllll, haha, they’re in the Seattle area insofar that they’re about an hour-fifteen north? At Snow Goose Produce near Mount Vernon. So, good, but probably not a worthwhile trip unless you’ve got some actual time to kill. (I bet Seattle has some rad ice cream places itself, too.)

      I’m glad you’re going up to the area! Geek Girl Con sounds awesome, if I weren’t already using up my vacation hours I’d totally be there. I love western Washington in general, it’s so great and lovely and the TREES.

  2. The socks are really cute ~ and the whole outfit looks like a very comfortable weekend outfit. I thought the spotted ray might be some sort of star-gazer ray, but then I couldn’t turn up a picture of one looking around the net, so maybe not…

    • I’ll be heading to GGC right after Nerdapalooza in Orlando the weekend before, so I’m sure I’ll be pretty vacationed out by the time I finally get home. But so worth it. I heard great things about last year’s, and was sad I had to miss it (I just started a new job and didn’t have vacation yet). I’ve got cosplay planned, and I’m also looking forward to seeing the Washington greenery.

      • I used to live really close to Orlando and am sad to be missing Nerdapalooza this year. Have fun! I’m planning some cosplay for GGC too. I can’t wait to meet Greg Rucka, my favorite comic book writer evar. 😀

  3. AHH I have been toting that jellyfish charm around for years trying to figure out what to do with it – love your necklace!
    -love, another buzzed ‘pinner
