My Attempt at Fashion: Rainy Day Pink + Zebra Print!

May 16, 2012·

You guys, it’s been raining a lot. So much rain. SO much rain. A lot of rain. Rain.

I mean, I’m not complaining, cause lots of rain means MOLLY DON’T NEED TO WATER HER PLANTS. WOOP!

Anyway, just cause it’s raining doesn’t mean you can’t look coordinated or cheery despite the dreary days.

I’m not gonna lie, when it rained, my mood used to drop (Seasonal Affective Disorder, or something??) – I’d wear sweats, old jeans and a raddy t-shirt, or, you know, something. Now, there’s nothing wrong with dressing comfy on a rainy day – but you’d be surprised how much my mood improved just by dressing fun and cheery on a rainy day!

Also, who doesn’t love some pink and zebra print? I mean, I know I do.


[embracing the self-portraits – also, i love that it stopped raining for the 5 minutes in the morning for me to take my portraits. dramatic irony? or just irony? or coincidence?]

[oh hai dirt and wet leaves]

[sans rain jacket now, yo.

and yeah, i know my headband, cardigan, and umbrella match. and i don’t care. i love it. haha]

[you know, just a shot of what it looks like from the back. haha. why? i dunno.]

[my dogs were trying to crawl through the deck to get to me. i was amused.]
