I forgot the shoes I was going to wear with this at home! doh. These were my "commuting" shoes. Oh well. I had gold flats under my desk I put on after this. I like to take a theme too far. The shirt has yellow on it. Yellow hair tie, yellow hair bobble, black and gold hoodie, gold shoes, black pants. If I had gold earrings I would of worn those too.
Hoodie and shirt H&M
Hair bobble I had a few questions on these. These are from when I was a kid but I know they still make them, I saw a little girl on T wearing some. I think it is like $2 for a pack of 10 different colors. Snatch some up and throw them in your pony to make it "fancy" is what I say.
The hoodie is a kids. I am obviously a grown woman squeezing myself into a child's sweater. It doesn't fit but I convinced myself a few years ago I could "get away with it" because I had to have it. I know I am closer to 35 than I am to 15 but eh, sometimes you just have to go with what you LIKE over what looks best?
I do like some younger things but in general I would say in general I am not a childish person. (SHUT UP FAMILY) I like whimsical things I think is a good way to describe me. I do like Hello Kitty and have for 30 years. I don't actively collect anymore. If I see something I like I might get it but I don't seek it out anymore. It is so readily available and isn't a hunt like it used to be. My mechanical pencil at work is Hello Kitty. I've had it for... well it's from an ex (which I didn't even remember that fact until just this minute trying to remember where I got it. ) and I've been with Dave 15 years so I've had it at least that long.
The pen is from out last trip to Disney World. I decided that on vacations I would get something small and fun instead of say a shirt I wouldn't wear or a knickknack I had to dust. Pens are great for that. Magnets too. I will say no one ever takes my pen at work. I would just walk over and snatch it back as it is obviously "hillary's" (Kids in the hall? eh?)
When I was in high school there were only two places in 30 miles that you could even get Hello Kitty to where I lived in Homestead. My mom would stop at the mall in Coral Gables (??) just so I could run in to the one store that had a small lucite display of Sanrio. The Falls had a store too. A stationary store with the same small clear display. I swear they made it all clear so kids could see everything and beg their parents for stuff on the top shelf. Now you can get Hello kitty everything at Target and it just isn't as much fun as it was 20 years ago. I like the hunt. It was always special when someone gave you something kitty because you know they SEEKED it out for you.
Anything you seek out?
I like those tiny license plates from different states with my name on them. Nothing ever has my name on it and if it does it isn't spelled right so those are fun. Also always looking for the perfect I just ate a popsicle lip color.
So I said all that above about how I am not overly into kid things... Oy yeah WALKING CONTRACTION I am. (see video)
