Freckles in April: Open to Interpretation

Open to Interpretation

Erica and I decided we wanted to squeeze in one last regular OTI round before the big one starts next week. This was actually supposed to happen forever ago but stuff kept happening and we kept pushing it back and here we are.

In any event, it's my pick-

Miroslava Duma. Original source unknown.
Oh how I love this. The laid back cool speaks to my soul.

I did this one two different ways. I put together a fun outfit last week but when I went to take pictures I discovered my lens was across town with Aaron's business partner. I took iPhone mirror pictures for M:PT anyway.

Oh, this skirt. I got it on super clearance from Asos forever ago but have a really hard time wearing it. It's supposed to be a midi, I think, but it's a little too long for that. Not a midi, not quite a maxi (I think that's a Britney Spears song?). I'll hem it up someday.

We finally got my lens back a couple days ago so I did another take on the inspiration yesterday (screeching in under the deadline!)-

Happier than I look, I'm sure

The scarf conveniently covered up the fact that I haven't washed my hair in...I actually can't remember the last time I washed my hair. We've been in the pool a LOT and chlorine has been doing the job for me. Also, I have a crazy sunburn on my shoulders. Par for the freckled course.

For someone who has been grouching about summer for at least a month I sure have been soaking it in this week. We cut up some watermelon and grilled burgers for lunch yesterday. My skin smells like sunscreen and has that slightly sensitive feeling that comes from being in the sun a few minutes too long. I've barely changed out of my swimsuit since Monday. The only makeup I've worn is a bit of waterproof mascara I swiped on three days ago. When we collapse into bed at night it's with that deep exhaustion usually reserved for vacations and holidays that comes from playing outside in the sun and water all day. I think I might survive this summer in a single, sane, sunburned piece.

Go check out Erica's interpretation and then come participate us in our link-ups over the next couple weeks!
