I'M A COUGAR NOW

diy cut off shorts, vintage jacket, diy top from strange cargo in chicago, f21 tights

I have been shredding and bleaching and dying all of the clothes that I hate but want to love. These used-to-be-mom jeans were my first experiment. Turned out pretty decent. Think I may dip dye them still. I was super hyped to wear my creation along with this jacket for my birthday, only to find out it was COLD AS HELL (Winter hell, not hot hell. Hot hell would be fantastic and not really hell). So I had to wear pants and a coat on my birthday. I think the weather thought it was giving me a gift by being the same temperature as my age and throwing in a ton of wind. Screw you, weather, screw you. You're terrible at gift giving. 

I've never wanted January to come so bad. Road tripping down south and west. I mean, south south. Where I avoid all things Winter. And then I will continue to avoid Winter for the entire month because I will be couch surfing in southern California. Hello California friends, and thank you for letting me stay with you all. Love you. Youda youda best. I will buy pizza and nachos for everyone. I swear to all things holy, if by a freak chance it comes anywhere near snowing where I will be, I AM GOING TO MURDER AN INNOCENT PERSON. <3

Took almost no photos of my birthday last night that weren't completely blurry. Really we barely took any pictures at all. That just means we were having way too much FUN. 



Surf party song. HBD to me.

  2. happy [belated] birthday! and if the weather continues to be the same temperature as your age, by the time you're 70 it should be fine.

    love your shorts, they look so cool like that! my friend and i have been planning to bleach/dye stuff for ages, but we never get around to it. it's sad.

    & the shirt in your party pictures is awesome.
    && I don't know how many times I've already said this (probably about a billion), but I'll say it again: your jewelry is so cool.
