new philosophy on life: when life gives you lemons, take a summery blog post.
so i haven’t worn these jeans in aaages. i think the key is to wear a smaller top with it. in the past i have looked oversized myself rather than my clothing. so i do think it can be a little tricky to pull off. it would seem you just have to be a tall bean and then you can wear anything and it will just hang off you, but in my case (and a lot of other peoples) i don’t have this luxury. sometimes i think i have to work way too hard to get a certain style or garment to work on me! it’s annoying.
one thing that i do like to do in order to give me a little confidence, slim me down and allow me to think that i can actually wear whatever the heck i want, is to fake tan. i must say it’s something that i do fairly well because it’s never really too obvious that i have fake tanned. but i think i am going to go through a bit of trial period and just try out all the best tans on the market until i find my perfectly natural, non-smelly, non-sheet-staining, long-lasting, golden colour. i don’t know, maybe it doesn’t exist. regardless, i will keep you informed of my search results. loving that this weather is warming up and i get to throw dinner parties and fun warm evening activities at my cribbb! i’m a little bit sad that i’m missing 5 weeks of summer, but not really. new york is going to be SO GOOD. anyway, it’s 2am and i’m asleep on my keyboard as i type this. so i’m going to leave before i say some too grammatically incorrect.
to the start of spring/summer!
