Bob said I looked like a fashionable pirate today. We were headed to the Americana Food Truck Festival, so I laughed saying maybe I could fight my way into get free food.
Little did we realize that the rest of the world would also be at the Americana Food Truck Festival…. literally every other person in L.A. was here. and being a pirate didn’t help!
Basically I had been wanting a blue and white striped shirt for hm, I don’t know… forever- and I had seen several that I “liked” but wasn’t in love with. and I know what you are thinking, “a striped shirt is a striped shirt… is a striped shirt” but it’s not! Some of the stripes are too small, too big, weird arms, a strange off-blue color. anyway, the other day I was wondering around the mall, because Bob told me he was going to go to Radio Shack and I hate that place- and I stumbled across this little number. First of all, it was on sale (of course) and it was perfect. I held it, I admired it and then I walked out of the store. This is the thing, when you are planning an around the world trip- you really have to think about each purchase. And I haven’t bought anything for myself in months! It was almost weird thinking about buying this shirt (even though it was so cheap). I left it there, went home, slept on it and after I went to the gym the next day, I walked over to AE and handed over the cash. I felt so happy afterwards- and immediately came home and styled about fifteen outfits!
This was one of the bolder options- but knowing me it might end up being calm!
I actually saw another girl wearing this exact same skirt- which i thought was weird because it’s not your average skirt! I even said to her- We are wearing the same skirt! She looked at me kind of oddly, but I smiled. Anyway- that is the story of this outfit.
Tonight was kind of a bust because the Americana was just so crowded. It wasn’t really enjoyable to be there because of all the people and the lines to each truck was incredible- like at least 50 people per truck! Oh well, we will have to go to each truck another time. It wasn’t like we were going to be able to eat all that food anyway!
