OOTD: Last Day of Summer
Aside: Went to see Skyfall last night at the Odeon and it was GRRREATTT. I now respect Javier Bardem on a whole new level. As for Daniel Craig, amazeballs. He’s never looked more fit. Great acting, perfect cast, amazing movie, unforgettable villain.
Now before you go ahead and think ‘Is she bonkers?’ when you spy my outfit of the day, lemme explain. I took these pictures a few weeks go when, believe it or not England still enjoyed a few days of unrelenting warmth and sunshine. I’d had my eye on a pair of ripped washed denim shorts at Miss Selfridge for weeks and finally got them. But the chance to wear them never presented itself. Then I stumbled on an article titled ’20 Worst Buys’ which was about the things that women buy the most but never end up wearing. The super short denim shorts was one of them. Grrrr. There was no way I was going to be victimized by my shorts and become one of the people on that list.
It sounds like I am blaming my lack of gusto to rock my super short denim shorts mainly because of the weather. But if I do sound that way, then I am just being pretentious. Weeks and weeks of heaping on tub after tub of ice-cream and all those times that I’d ever craved (and given in to) a sweet chili crispy chicken with chips on the side and a Heinz dip were beginning to creep in on my conscience. I felt inadequate. Alas, I had bought a pair of knock-’em-dead shorts that I was incapable of rocking.
And the Summer was quickly slipping away.
What did I resort to?
-A round or two of sit ups while watching the occasional late night movie,
-Suddenly breaking into a run in the middle of a nice stroll,
-TAKING the stairs
-and yes RESOLVING to hit the gym (once I get the right gear). Mind you they wouldn’t let me work out in my wedge heels no matter how comfy I said they were, unless I was Mariah Carey or Victoria Beckham:(
Nevertheless, on a day that felt like the last day of Summer, I finally got around to wearing my short shorts. And this was the end result.
