Pebbles & Boat Shoes.

Looking at these pictures I took of myself this morning, I can't help but laugh at the expression on my face. It's the "Okay, I'm going to give this my best effort!" look, which at 7 AM isn't quite up to par with my effort at, say, 3 PM.
But here I am anyway, in my first outfit post since I admitted I'm not the biggest fan of posting pictures of myself. So far, it's the only existential crisis I've had related to blogging.
It's still hot as hell outside, so I've been wearing a lot of shorts, skirts, and dresses. I bought the skirt I'm wearing last December, during a shopping excursion at the Round Rock Premium Outlets. I fell in love with it because of its army-green color and exposed zipper, but the side pockets are what sealed the deal. Fashionable and functional, these pockets are my best friend: they can hold my phone AND my iPod!I purchased this Pebbles Flintstone graphic tee while at a National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, D.C. During the conference, I walked into a Delia's for the first time. Overwhelmed with the selection of shirts, I grabbed the only T-shirt my grandparents wouldn't be offended by. Pebbles' hair used to be completely velvety-soft. After years of washing, there's just a patch of fuzz left. Sad Pebbles!
As for the boat shoes? They were my first employee purchase at Dots this past weekend. They were tax-free due to back-to-school shopping, so I snatched them up for only ten bucks. So far, they've been very comfortable to walk to school in.

Graphic Tee: Junk Food Tees, by way of Delia's; circa 2005.
Skirt: Element, via Billabong Factory Outlet.
Boat Shoes: Dots.
