Short Story

5.25.12a
5.25.12b
5.25.12c
5.25.12d{Top: Bloom | Shorts: Gap | Shoes: UO | Bag: Brahmin – Elisa}
I’m pretty sure from the back it looks like I’m not wearing any shorts. Which what exactly my plan. I wanted people to see the front of my outfit anyways, so maybe they will just to see if this is only a shirt. And then out of pure relief maybe they will tell me I look cute today. Mission accomplished. 
Hope everyone has a fun and long weekend planned for Memorial Day. See ya Monday. Or Tuesday…we’ll see how it goes 😉

    Cute! I wish I could wear shorts right now, not quite warm enough in SF. Also, I love the location you chose for your pics today, the graffiti is perfect with this outfit!
