Sequins and Sea Breezes: A Twist of Lemon

A Twist of Lemon

2/25/2014



Leather and neon, two of my favorite things right now! I found these shorts on sale at Necessary Clothing for only $10 so I had to buy them. I love the sporty look they have with the dolphin hem. This style of shorts was really popular in the 80's but seems to be making a comeback which I'm perfectly fine with because they're really comfy! I decided to go basic with this outfit and pair a simple white lightweight sweater with the shorts and throw my hair up in a ponytail. Ok, I'll admit, that wasn't exactly a planned thing but my hair is in desperate need of a cut so it wasn't looking so cute down and my sock bun contraption wasn't around so up was my best option. I'm seriously the worst at doing my own hair. I can't curl it and get it to stay, I can't braid my hair, and the top knot is impossible. I always blame it on my fine, thin hair but maybe it's just me? *UPDATE: I'm getting my hair did tonight. Wish me luck* Ok, so back to the outfit. To top of my look I threw on my favorite neon yellow heels for that extra pop of color. 

Ignore the giant bruise on my thigh (yeah, if you didn't notice before I'm sure you're going to go back and look now so maybe I shouldn't have said anything). I tried to cover that sucker up with makeup but it was not having it. Funny enough I don't even know where I got that one from! I have a giant one on my shine that at least I know where it came from (it was a tragic accident involving a putter and me not paying attention) but at least it was nice enough to disappear with a little concealer. If you're keeping score Me -1 Bruise - 1.

  4. Look at those legs!!!! Holy cow--these shorts look amazing on you! For $10 dollars you can't beat it :) Not to mention the neon shoes are so fun. I am not going to lie I went back and looked at the bruise--barely noticeable! Gotta love those bruises that show up outta nowhere--happens to me all the time.
