It Ain't the Money and It Sure As Hell Ain't Just For the Fame



Hanes t-shirt, altered by me. Hot Topic suspenders. Thrifted granny shorts ("Squeeze" brand... lol) and studded heels.

I still don't have any good flat sandals, which is really bugging me. I need to get some soon. But anyway, the shorts are an example of the totally hot clothes I got at the $1-for-anything sale at a local thrift store. And I got the suspenders a while ago but they're really annoying to adjust plus one of the clips keeps breaking... but on higher pants they seem to work better.

It's 92.4—no, scratch that, 92.8—degrees outside. Here's how I actually feel:

Yep. Note the hot farmer's tan. At least it's the perfect day to go to the beach—I might actually be able to go swimming in a 2 degree New England ocean.

Oh yeah, and my Topshop order came! The top didn't ship because it was apparently out of stock (oh well, I didn't need it). The cropped pants ("knickers" as my mom called them) were fab but the very thought of putting them on.... Here are the flats though! I was worried about sizing but I got a 40 (/ British size 7) and they fit my 8.5/9 (mostly 9) feet perfectly.

I can't wear granny shorts because they make me look like a stump :/ they look fabulous on you, though! The outfit is so simple but chic. And the Topshop shoes are so fun!
