"Old Yellow Legs"


Outfit Details: 

Sheer White Blouse - Sears ($12), Cut Offs - Free and DIY, Tights - Forever 21 ($5), Oxfords - Thrifted ($2.75), Floral Crown - DIY (to be in the shop soon!) 









I actually wore this outfit over a week ago. Then I was able to get away with wearing a shirt made of such thin material, but that is definitely not the case now. It started snowing on Wednesday night, and by yesterday morning we had about an inch and a half. We didn't get snow until mid to late November last year, so comparatively, I think that's pretty good.

I've been keeping myself fairly busy lately. I started my photography internship at the beginning of the week, and it's amazing how much I'm already learning. It just so happened that the father of one of my best friends is an amazing photographer, and he was willing to teach me. I really don't know much at all about the technical side of things, so he's helping me with that, as well as the artistic part. I'm so excited to learn, though it is a bit strange having someone critique my work, but I'm sure I'll get used to it. I have to be up early tomorrow morning to help sell coffee, donuts, and hot chocolate at the Balloon Fiesta as a fundraiser for a club I'm in at school called Interact. We're trying to raise the money to go help rebuild a school in our sister city in Peru that was severely damaged by flooding. The Peruvian Government isn't helping, and the majority of foreign aid has gone to places like Japan and Chile, so they really need help. Wish us luck! Then on Sunday, Josh and I are going to see the Blue Man Group! His mom's new boyfriend bought him tickets for his birthday, and I'm quite excited to go!

Thanks for everything, guys!


Love, 

Victoria



Fun fact #1: I have a scar on my cheek that's visible in the second picture that I gave myself when I was a baby by scratching myself.

Funfact #2: "Old Yellow Legs" is what Josh's dad called me when he saw me wearing this. I wasn't quite sure whether to be insulted or not, but I love that guy either way :) He's hilarious.

    Yellow tights are fabbity fab. I like how you kept the ret of the outfit simple. The billowy white blouse is super cute and you haircut! It's very cute. I always admire girls that can pull off short hair with confidence.
