Hair is second day, I tried straightening it with the iron, but then didn't have time to fiddle much with it so I threw it up in a messy ponytail with a black covered elastic and a few clips. Didn't capture it in the picture, but the hair leaves a spiky waterfall of sorts at the top of my head.

Yesssss, I am wearing shorts to work. I hate hate hate shorts, but this season's variety of Bermuda and walkers are making me change my mind. It doesn't hurt that these were only $20. When i tried them on, I was wearing my red peep toe pumps from Enzo and I imagined them with a white wrap shirt, looking tres hip. However, I do not own a white wrap shirt, and with knits, the red shoes (and my black peep toes from yesterday) looked a bit wrong (okay, a lot wrong) with the outfit. These shoes were the worst offenders for work. Now I can so see me wearing these with my pink blouson tube top from Victoria's Secret and a pair of stacked black flops when I go back to the beach next month, but for work I needed to be a little more appropriate and conservative. So far one person complimented me on looking cute (whassup K!) and one person said “you look dressed for warm weather!” and the passive-aggressive coworker who always says something sweet yet snarky said “I never would have thought shorts for work!” to which I happily said “I know, I love current fashion!” and kept walking.
And there is a chick in another department who is wearing white cargo shorts today and wore denim cuffed shorts the other week, so I look far more appropriate. As long as the president doesn't make a comment like he did with my Pat Benetar look, I am dandy!
