whisper your blues as heartfelt as you can.
I, above all things, am a city slicker. I enjoy nature, so long as it's manicured and bugs stay far, far away from me. Gardens, sports fields, mowed lawns and tended shrubs are fine, but once you throw me into the real nature I get paranoid and feel like bugs are covering 80% of my body. That being said, busy cities and towns are my favorite places to be. And when I ventured out to the small town of Greenport, it was filled with beach-going tourist and residents walking around, enjoying the weather. I couldn't think of a better way to spend the day.
I enjoy being overdressed (to a certain extent) in public. I love going to the grocery store in heels and I love wearing dresses that are just a bit more than casual to something silly like a class or meeting for work (I work in a theater carpentry shop where I build things and am forced to wear ugly clothes for my safety.) There's just something humorus about it that makes me happy inside. Not to mention I enjoy looking nice.
This outfit is a perfect example of this odd like joy of mine. Heels and shorts in a modest beach town is sure to stand out and turn heads. Add something leopard print, and ta-da! Overdressed without being obnoxious.

Shorts: Vintage Levi's, thrifted.
Belt and Scarf: Stolen from my wonderful Mom.
