Fruits Week Day 2: Watermelon

I think I forgot to link this yesterday, I'm participating in Fruits Week over at Megan Mae Daily. Day two is for the colour palette inspired by watermelon. I just ate some, so now I can post some! To be honest, these tights only lasted as long as the first time I had to pee. I stripped them off and left them in a sweaty heap in the corner of my bathroom.




Tank: Mom'ed (Faded Glory I think? Is that American Walmart?)

Shorts: Joe

Tights: Zellers

Trouser Socks: Payless

Boots: Rocket Dog

Lipstick: Maybeline Coral Crush

I despise shorts for the stark reality that finding a pair that fits and doesn't look weird (because to me these are all kinds of wrong) or feel weird (they feel weird, too) is way too hard for a thick person. Yet, I've worn these twice this week because they're pink. Not just pink, but PINK! I'm pretty sure my thong was hanging out the back all day, which is especially wrong because I took my son to have his picture taken for the newspaper in an art gallery with bunch of old people. He won a writing award, btw. Braggy parenting moment. :) Usually when I'm going to an event of that nature I wear a dress and cover my tattoos, but there was no time for that today. Notice the curly mop head! But this is me, imperfectly perfect and not going to change.

That's all,




  1. I love this to pieces! A very great interpretation of watermelon colors, and those ankles boots rock!

    Shorts are impossible. I hate them - to wear them that is. They always feel weird and fit weird, even on skinny-me. I think those look cute on you, but I'm sorry if they feel weird!

    Congrats to your son, btw. That's awesome.

  2. The shorts look awesome with the tights, however, I can see why you ditched the tights in the end. Sometimes it's good to let it all hang out, lol! :)

  3. I love these boots but hardly ever wear them because the soles are made of foam and they get shred and get black powder everywhere. So annoying, but perfect watermelon colour!
