Mermaid Lagoon

Pinup Girl Clothing Chartreuse Peasant top Laura Byrnes High Waist shorts

Yep, that's me.  In shorts.  I literally thought hell had to freeze over before I would wear shorts out in public.  I've always felt self conscious about my bottom half because it's quite bigger than the rest of my body.  But I'm really learning to embrace what I have and try new things.  These shorts are wonderful because the waist is nice and high, which is great for tucking in tops or wearing crop tops.  I also love the that the back of the waistband is elasticized, which means it won't gap or pucker when you sit down.  I actually purchased them in a couple of colors/prints, so expect to see more shorts here in the future!

I can't get over how perfect my Pinup Mermaid brooch from Tangerine Menagerie is.  Her layered resin designs are so detailed and the colors are nice and bright.  I especially love how my mermaid has purple hair, just like me!  You can follow Julia's Instagram to check out her newest designs (like her Alice in Wonderland piece) or favorite her shop to see what she has in store right now.

I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!  Kevin, Bianca and I kept it pretty low key.  Fireworks are wonderful and all, but one of my dogs gets extremely anxious when they go off every year.  As a dog mommy too, I feel like I need to keep all my kiddies safe and happy.  Tommy's doing fine now, but it breaks my heart a little because he literally has no idea what's going on.  That's why lots of kisses and cuddles were in order last night :).
