velvet shorts in a steel yard







shorts from spanish moss
asymmetrical top from bluefly (a similar cheaper one here)
ebay bag
dirty hair from not washing it for 2 weeks
mother of pearl ring from moth and garnet
random other rings
crystal necklace made by me
thrifted shark necklace
aldo shoes

Normal day, hanging around the ol' metal yard. As I have mentioned before, I am a hoarder. Of shorts. (and jewelry, duh.) I got these shorts the other day and I am IN LOVE. Crushed velvet goodness that have an elastic strap so they will fit forever! I have a feeling these shorts are going to fuse to my skin before the summer is over. 

I'm sure you all know about the deadly tornado in Joplin that happened the other night. I can't get it out of my head. I feel so terrible for the families that have missing or dead relatives. I keep wondering when a big one will hit where I live. I have yet to be in a tornado. The most I have seen were 5 funnels forming above me when I was near Devils Tower. We drove away reeeeal fast. I am nervous that one will happen when I am sleeping and I won't wake up to the sirens. This has also lead me to think..what would I grab if I only had minutes to run 5 stories down into the basement? My money? My laptop, photos, what? I have no idea. But like I said, a tornado has yet to hit this city so what am I really worried about, eh? EHHHH? 

Kind of cool news - Beachbody has asked me to do a testimonial video for my "outstanding P90X transformation." I have to answer a bunch of questions wearing next to no clothing to show off my nutso buff crazy body and rippling muscles. Kidding. About the rippling buffness. But I do have to have me working out on video and talk about what inspired me to do the program, and basically inspire people to do the same. I am a beachbody program freak. Have you guys ever tried P90X or Insanity or any other beachbody program? If not, you should. And if you have, you need to be a coach, like me! Here is my beachbody page if you are all ever interested in trying it. No gimmick. Just real, awesome results. 

Time for food. I'm hungry.  

In the mean time, check these ladies out. Just a few bloggala ladies that rock my socks and also have fantastic original style. Few of my many faves. :-)

  4. Wow, you look incredible! Those velvet shorts are so fantastic on you!

    P.S. Thank you very much for the comment! You're so kind. My hair is cut completely a-symmetrically, so all I do is push it to the side and add volume to the roots!

  8. ummm I was just going to ask how you have such amazinggg legs! Teach me your ways!! I am dying to try p90x! my boss does it and she is so FIT! I'm super jealous! I can't work out right now (arrrg!) bcuz of my car accident injuries, and it's killing me! I used to do yoga all the time, but I'm such a gym freak, so I'm always looking for ways to work out!!

    Those shorts are divine and if I had legs for days like you, I'd most definitely rock them! LOVE those boots too!

  13. Natural disasters are terrible, I was in Japan when the earthquake it and I can't get it out of my head, all those lives lost, it's devasting...and it leaves you with a feeling powerless and guilty...
    I love the outfit, and the shorts are to die for, I wish my hair looked that nice if I didn't wash it for that long.
