Top - Asos, necklace - thrifted, skirt - Urban Outfitters, bag - Deux Lux, sandals - Aldo
I wore this on Monday. Sunny, 83 degree weather served as an enabler to my ever-growing senioritis, as well as my compulsive need to frolic. For now, such rare temperatures bring excessive joy and a failure to let anything get to me. You know, like blisters on my feet because I haven't worn these sandals sans-socks this season or minor personal issues. But exploring the NoLibs area of Philly and eating a yummy veggie burger at Honey's Sit 'n' Eat makes such problems trivial, regardless of weather.
I've had this outfit in my head for a while, but I haven't worn it because the colors are those of a school from which I was rejected. So I felt a little bitter about the situation, but I've gotten over it and paired two colors that look good on me.
My friend Christian was kind enough to take these photos for me. He's into photography and doesn't judge me for posing all awkwardly and posting photos of myself online. It's cool. I felt like I was doing the typical boyfriend-takes-my-outfit-photos thing (most of which turn out splendidly) minus the fact that I'm single, which isn't a problem whatsoever.
I've been trying my hand at the whole vintage-photo-effect edit on my software (Corel Paint Shop Pro X2, in case you were wondering), but I feel like I'm trying too hard if I do that. And I find usually it takes away the shadows I rely on to make certain pieces stand out, since I'm sort of into baggy/drape-y/textured/whatever clothing.
I want to do more food posts/posts about Philadelphia and the surrounding area. Other than that, what would you like to see on Silhouette Girl?
I hope all is well with you!
