Boy, with the deep-V that this t-shirt has, I feel like there should really be some Hipster Dude Chest Hair poking out to complete the image. (Note to self: acquire some HDCH. Somehow.)
Body hair musings aside: pink! All the pink. You may recognize these shorts as originally being these capris–turns out rolling them up to enshorten them was the best thing I could have done, and they have gained excellent new life and stylishness now that my kneecaps are showing. See, I’m slowly learning!
I called them “porange” before (pinky-orange), but they really are quite flamingo pink. They’re still a bit baggy around the crotch area and prone to wrinkling and bunching in slightly weird ways, but I like ’em. Being the size and shape that I am, it’s hard to find shorts that fit perfectly–they’re either skintight and booty-hugging, or saggy-relaxed through the butt and thighs and need a belt to be held up because there’s extra space at the waist. So, ya know, I make do, like so many of us ladies who are not shaped quite like ready-to-wear clothing expects us to be.
In other news, wheeeee! By the time this post goes up there will be only a couple of hours until I’m on the way to the airport! (Are you tired of hearing me talk about my vacation yet? Just you wait until I actually get there! I will bore the PANTS off all y’all.) Over the years since my parents moved away from California, I’ve become a pretty efficient air traveler: Alaska Airlines losing my bag twice means I only do carry-on if I can help it; I no longer wear belts or anything with zippers; and I will never again try to take a George Foreman Grill on a plane.
Yeah, I know, you’re all pretty impressed. *shines nails on flamingo shirt, looks cool*
Wish me luck while I’m up in the air, folks! If you’re nice to me, I’ll send you guys a postcard.
