what i'm wearing: end of summer catch up

It's time for another catch up with outfit pics on my phone from the end of the summer. 



I feel like I can wear shorts longer than I can wear tank tops. My arms get so much more cold than these meaty lower limbs. The cutout booties are perfect for transitioning too, I feel.

-booties from Charlotte Russe

Wore this out to host one of my club nights [which I'll be hosting at Ultrabar again on October 24th, BTW]. Rocked the fanny, and became obsessed with the "scuba" material of the skirt.

-shoes from Charlotte Russe

-bandeau from H&M


This is one of my new favorite outfits. It's a high neck tank, but it's sheer and has an open back. I feel like I can get away with it at work with a tank underneath [really I can get away with anything, but I like to look 50% presentable] and then I switch to a bandeau when heading out.

-Express jeans
-wedges from Charlotte Russe

Now begins fall fashion. *sigh* I love the ease of scarf and boot season, but feeling hott when heading out is a lot more difficult, don't ya think?! Plus it's a lot more laundry and articles of clothing to match together. SO MUCH WORK.

wearing: a diy peplum top

What do you do when you get an article of clothing that fits pretty well, but is see-through or the wrong color or something? You dye it, duh.

I was forever looking for a white peplum shirt and got one from ASUS that fit well, but it was so see through and any tanks underneath looked ridiculous. When I realized it was too late to return it, I decided to just try and dye it.

Even though the threading didn't change colors, I love the way it turned out! And now I think I'll become addicted to dying things custom colors.

-grey suede pumps from H&M

I still can't decide if the peplum shape is flattering or not on me. Honest opinions are very welcome. 

Also... I'm trying to get every last day out of tanks before I have to start pairing them with jackets every day. That's annoying.

influenster box: victoria's secret sport clothes

Have you signed up for Influenster yet?! The boxes seem to keep getting better! This time; a bra and pants from Victoria's Secret's Sport line! [They also sent a stack of coupons to hand out to friends!]

I've never wanted to post a "here's my workout bod" picture, but, well... I gotta show you how these things are!



Why does someone need cleavage while working out?! This sports bra actually gave me boobs, and I'm not used to that. [Okay, not huge ones... but they exist.] I thought you were supposed to look like the president of the itty bitty titty committee at the gym...?!

Welp.... I kinda liked the look of it, and it didn't feel like a real bra like I expected it too. As for the pants: they tucked everything in good and tight while staying comfortable. 

I think I'm more than happy with these freebies.... but it's still crazy to me to spend $50 on a sports bra. Give me more coupons and I'll buy a whole collection.

PS I'm mad I have a whole lighting/tripod set up behind me, and I still resorted to a phone selfie. I'm lazy. Or busy. Whatever you wanna believe.

watch etv: playing hi my name is with kim cesarion

Kim Cesarion: Super swaggerific Swede with a really fun and underrated song.

He came in to perform and I invented a new game that is like Heads Up or charades, but with old fashioned paper.

The people that I had to act out had to have been rigged. It was out of control.


I should probably work on having nicer things to say but like... IT'S NOT MY FAULT I HAD TO ACT OUT PEOPLE WHO SUCK. I promise honesty in my opinions, so....

And seriously, that falsetto at the end! What a talented dude.

the everyday struggles of a former big booty girl

Once upon a time, I had one of the most magnificent butts. It was a part of my gymnast body. Small-small-small up top then BAM. A booty of 100% muscle.

Then.... I got fat, then lost the weight... and along with it, my ass.

Some people worry about losing their flat abs they once had, I'm pissed no one is calling my butt "its own planet."

I've noticed some other friends of mine have also lost their signature body part, so I'm assuming people can relate to this list. If you can't, at least you can feel my everyday pain and torture.
  • Songs like "All About That Bass" or "Baby Got Back" come on and at first you're all YEEEAAAHHHH THIS IS MY JAM... before quickly realizing that you should sit your non-ass down and shut up. 
  • You crop pictures not because you're fat, but because you're flat
  • When someone else is told their ass is nice or big, you feel immediate [not slightly justified] hate for that person.
  • Finding jeans or size small bottoms that actually fit bothers you. 
  • You try every "booty boot camp" exercise, and get frustrated when they don't work immediately.
  • You're constantly looking at your profile in the mirror trying to convince yourself there's still something there.
  • Looking back on old pictures doesn't hurt because you miss your friends... you miss your badonk. 
  • You have to endlessly search for jeans that will give it an illusion of being bigger and rounder, something it used to do on its own.
  • You feel like you're going through an identity crisis because WHAT WILL YOU BE KNOWN FOR NOW?!
  • You know your body has absolutely nothing to offer now.
  • It takes everything in your being to admit it... if you ever do.
All good things must come to an end, I guess... and pictures like this must be retired.
