Sometimes I find it funny that I dress so femininely. Don't get me wrong, I'm most definitely a feminine person. I live for girly clothing and think that make-up is pretty rad. That said, I spend most of my time around guys. I usually mention my girlier activities, like shopping, in my posts since they're more relevant, but in reality, I've spent at least 80 percent of my time this summer having overly-vulgar conversations and cussing up a storm with my best friends — most of whom are dudes. It most likely has to do with growing up with brothers, but I just get along with guys better. I have a good amount of female friends as well, but almost all of them are like me in that sense as well. It's why I had such a horrible freshman year college when I was living on an all girls floor and surrounded by 18-year-old girls who I had nothing in common with. It's also why I love blogging. It's introduced me to so many women who share my love of feminine clothing, nerdy interests, and same sense of humor. If you can slip multiple f-bombs into one sentence while wearing a lace dress, we'll get along just great. Not that I'd do that on the Internet. A girl has to know when to keep it classy after all. ...this is totally the post that potential employers are going to find when I'm applying for jobs next year. I just know it.
That was really just a long way of saying that this is what I wore on Tuesday. I spent the afternoon at my friend Jon's house, watching The Wire, one of the greatest shows of all time. I got sidetracked from watching it a while ago, but I'm on season four now and will finally finish it this time around. Later at night, I crammed in a car with six other dudes to go to a bar in Huntington where my best friend, Adam, was doing stand-up. He was great, and even though a few of the comics were terrible, it was a ton of fun. I honestly wish I could go to stand-up shows every week.
This top is item no. 2 (3? I don't remember) from my most recent Modcloth order. I had been eye-ing it for a while and knew I wanted to wear it over a dress. I like that proportions are a little different me, but with a mint lace top and subtle polka dot dress, it was still right up my alley.
