Hot Pants

And now we're back to our regularly scheduled programming.

I've still got a couple Italian things to blog about, namely the plane ride home (which was a spiritual experience) and a video that I'm gonna try to compile. I am really happy to be home, though, where I can speak the language, even if I am hyper-aware of how damn southern everyone sounds. Back with my family, my cat, and my closet. It's all good.

I bought some short shorts from American Apparel after trying them on in-store in Milan. I was not gonna buy them in Italy, though, because they do this stupid thing overseas where if something costs $50, it also costs 50 euros. Which, with the exchange rate, means it costs somewhere around $65. So, like, no thank you. But they look super hot on, so even though they were expensive in American dollars, I went ahead and splurged online!

Summer in SC is all thunderstorms all the time. Well, when it's not hella hot and humid. Don't worry, I'm still glad to be back :)

Shirt: Walmart, DIY cropping
Shorts: American Apparel

  1. Those shorts are so cute and what a beautiful photo spot! Alex

  2. Those are adorable on you; totally worth the splurge!

  3. Those shorts look so cute on you! I am in dire need of some well - fitting denim shorts!

  4. THAT PIN! I like. And that conversion rate is so dumb, haha. I have moments like that with AA, too- where I frown deeply at the price but then I like it so much that I hand over my money anyway. It's worth it, right? ;)
