you and me could write a bad romance

11-12-0911-12-09
vintage dior sweater, thrifted uniform skirt, thrifted booties

Maybe I'm the only one who can tell since I know my own body well but can anyone tell that my thighs are swollen? I somehow ended up doing more physical activity than I'm used to this past weekend and my body is killing me. Somehow a couple friends and I ended up playing a few rounds of kickball late at night and I was fortunate enough to be the only one to step in dog crap and ruin my favorite oxfords. I also had a slight limp for two days because my knee popped when I was squatting down looking at books. When I tried to get up I heard a loud CRACK and suddenly I was on the floor unable to get up for ten or so minutes. I have the body and stamina of someone 30 years older than I am :/

My body may suck but my hair actually turned out the way I wanted it to today! I'm quite proud of this at the moment so I'm taking a moment to gloat... this doesn't happen very frequently. Oh and, I've decided not to cut my hair. To answer your questions, yes, I've had short hair before and I hated it a couple hours after. The last time I cut it that short was right before college since I was convinced I needed a fresh start but it pissed me off more than anything. It also didn't help that it looked terrible with the chubby face I was developing while gaining twenty pounds my Freshman year. I'll save the weight discussion for another post.

good hair day

nope, definitely can't see any swollen-ness and your hair looks gorgeous! did you put anything in it or did you just wake up looking that fabulous?

Ganymede Girl said...

Your hair looks really nice curled like that. Cute skirt too!

Annabel said...

Jeni said...

Simple outfit but stunning! I especially love the thrifted booties, and the hair is fab - what curling tongs do you use?!

your hair is soo lovely...I can't wait for my hair to get longer so I can curl it like that (well attempt to).Also completely understand about the going short, I did it a while ago and i'm still waiting for it to grow back to how long it was before and it is taking forever! Love the outfit too!

Mel said...

Oh dear, my friend had a similar situation with the knee and had to wear a knee brace for a couple years (or when she plays sports). If it continues to bug you, you should probably get it checked out (not to worry you or anything!). Omgosh I had a similar situation with the swollen thighs thing too; I walked to work (which is like a 30 minute walk) and my thighs were all stiff and red for the whole next day. Or maybe they weren't swollen...just worked out a bit. Hmm.

So lucky! I haven't played kickball in ages!

Bucca said...

Ouch! hope your leg is okay and your oxfords too!

Cute outfit and you look lovely :)

Kb said...

Lovely sweater (and your thighs look fine, don't worry).

Lainey said...

I love your hair! Especially when it's all curled like that!

Cheryl said...

Thighs not swollen, hair is great, you are great.

I do hate the whole early twenties but waking up like a 70 year old women thing--I have to shuffle around for the first 10 minutes while my ankles and knees crack with every step when I first get up.

flora said...

Totes know what you mean but regretting getting your hair cut short after having it long. I cannot wait until mine grows back :/

The best thing about your blog is, you don't put up runway fashion. I don't like runway fashion :[

Nice new hairdo, you look like the brunette version of Goldilocks. The bangs and curls make you look preppy and Jap, a little like Mochida Kaori of ELT.
