This was my first day out since I got the first step of my half-sleeve tattoo done, and the heat combined with the healing process definitely required bare arms. Hopefully soon it'll be all peeled and clean and nice so I won't have to worry about my clothes getting all lotion-y anymore!
It is not nearly warm enough to think of swimming outside yet, but I've had my eyes out for a vintage-inspired bikini for ages; when I found this one at Forever 21 today I knew it had to be mine. I might have to wait for another month to wear it, but in the meantime I had fun picking out my best (totally practical) beachwear.
I went to see Only Lovers Left Alive last night and felt like it deserved a bit of lushness in my wardrobe choices. Alas, I don't have any of the gorgeous embroidered garments like Tilda Swinton wears at moments in the film, but I went with some brocade and wool to ward off the not-quite-spring chill.
I have quite a long torso and that, combined with my generous bosom, can make wearing some sweaters difficult if I don't want to show my midriff any time I move. But I ordered this pair of high-waisted skinny jeans last week, and it's possible they are the answer to all my long-torsoed prayers! I'm loving the silhouette they give me. Plus dinosaur earrings!
