Sea Legs

see legs 4

If you've been hanging around this blog long enough, you'll probably know that I'm a big ol' fan of The Shins. You also might know that I'm big on fate, and the universe, and that I like to chew your ear off (type your eyes off? Ugh, that's terrible, I'm sorry) about this topic quite often. Once I put on these minty jeans, it immediately reminded me of The Shins song Sea Legs, and when I got into the car this morning, the first song that came on the radio was a Shins song (It's Only Life, to be exact). Of course, the universe and I had to have a little moment, and then off I went to school. The radio subsequently played some unfortunately spot on love songs (one of which being I Think I Love You by David Cassidy) but that, my friends, is content for some other blog post. Probably tomorrow's. Because, if you really have been hanging around this blog as long as I have been assuming you have throughout this post, you will most certainly know that I have no emotional boundaries and tend to over-share. All the time. About everything. Ever.

Note: These photos are so weird looking because I took them myself in super bright lighting, which I am, apparently, not at all good at. So, since the lighting was awful, I messed around with them in picasa, and ended up making them look like they were taken through a sunglass lense. Imagination station!

Until tomorrow,


  1. I think the photos look great! Taking them in bright light is a major pain though... also, the bag and the jeans were made for one another...

  2. I'm quite fond of your sea legs, mah dear! :) Also, your writing makes me smile. Please do over-share. It makes my day. <3

    Ahh i hate taking photos in direct sunlight! But you do what you have to do, eh? ;)

  3. ALSO, cute new simplified layout!!

  4. That bag is glorious.

  5. Hmm.. it's almost as if it was your destiny to put on those pants and have that string of events happen to you. How weird!
    I'd say fate, or whatever, picked an awesome pair of jeans. Those are so cool! Is there a color that pants don't come in nowadays?!
