Shirt - c/o 2020 Ave, Shorts - Vintage Levi's Cut-Offs, Boots - Vintage, Belt - Vintage (children's -- bordering on inappropriate cultural appropriation, but I'm going to be okay with it because it is SUPER old vintage), Jewelry - Konstantino & Flea Market Finds, Jacket - Holiday Gift from Mi Novio (vintage from the flea market)
Gettin' back to my roots here. Everything is vintage except for the Konstantino jewelry and the shirt, which was a gift from my newest sponsor, 2020 Ave. I was happy to work with 2020 Ave because they have really great price-points and a large selection of product. For anyone who doesn't like to throw down big dollars on new articles of clothing, they are a great alternative to mall goliaths like F21. They are the same folks who gifted me that bustier I wore in the outfit where I really should have had my hair down and worn a beanie, but waddayagonnado. If these are my regrets, I have lived a life of no uncertain privilege.
Okay, so I wore this outfit to go to my boyfriend's school with him to drop off a camera lens he had rented. We both got out of the car for about half a second when my dogs stomped on the door lock and locked themselves in the car, us out of the car, the key in the ignition. Great. Way to go, dogs. Fortunately, it was a bit chilly, otherwise I would have had to bash a window open so that they didn't overheat (okay, it would have been a little bit fun to break a window). While we waited for the locksmith, we explored this little wooded area around his school, and since he had his camera in hand, and since I have not been updating ye ol' blog as often lately, it kind of worked out perfectly.
The first thing I found was this cactus. A cactus! Why?! Why were you there, cactus? I stood next to him. "TAKE MY PICTURE NEXT TO THIS CACTUS!" I commanded of my boyfriend. He seemed nonplussed with the cactus idea. I thought the cactus matched my outfit, but he thought the lighting was too weird. I got one cactus photo, though, and it is my favorite out of the bunch, even if technically, it is on the wonky side. So, then we went into this wooded thicket where I met a variety of other plants. Still, none of them were quite as enthralling as that cactus.
Two more points before I cut the rambling:
1. Yes, I am trying to make cowboy boots "happen" again. I had saved these from my teenage years when cowboy boots had enjoyed popularity. They are the perfect vintage cowboy boot, so I held onto them, thinking, "Someday I will wear you again." Since cowboy booties are in fashion, I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and go with the full boot. Take that, mainstream western wear micro-trends.
2. I totally conquered that hill in the third photo. Check me out, all victorious. Hill = dominated.
