I've been really into wearing band tshirts lately. Highwaisted items and plaid. I just got these sweet ass boots as a gift and adding them to any outfit instantaneously transports me back to grunge city 90s style. I am obsessed w/ trying to get this look to work for me. This is my version. This was excessively comfortable for the weather today (not very often do I actually post photos same day but I was going to link up w/ IFB's latest project...but silly me missed the deadline..ah well still getting the hang of my calendar update on my phone :P). Anyway I love combining blacks and browns and blues to look like a giant bruise person. I think having blonde hair really adds to the grunge factor of this. I just need slightly darker roots to make this look legit. And maybe some greasy hair (ew). 

Second story today. As i was taking these photos these guys were loading their boat into the garage next to this one and were like hey! what are you taking pictures of??? I reply: well right now I am taking photos of this wall but soon it will be me. They looked at me like I was insane. Which I might be but at high noon this spot always has rad-tastic lighting so I forgo my awesomness for a moment and just look like a total dweeb. Good times

  1. This outfit is SO awesome- during the summer i was obsessed with tying button downs around my waist like that. it was an easy layer i didn't have to die sweating in haha. and those high waisted jeans are killers :)
