Let's Get Zesty

Dress: c/o Madam Rage   Cardigan: Philippines   Shoes: c/o My Hot Shoes   Bag: thrifted   Earrings: c/o Estarer

Let's get up close and personal with my volleyball-scarred knees, shall we? Haha, they're healing up better, but yowza, they certainly can be an eyesore in photos. I was this close to airbrushing them out, but decided against it. I like keeping my photos as natural as I can. Besides, when I've earned these scars doing something I love? I can't justify erasing them.

Anyway, isn't this color combination zesty and bright? Such a long ways away from my edgy boho style...not sure what happened when I woke up and put this together. Its what I wore to a Senate meeting though, and the chipper colors helped put a smile on my face throughout the day. This bird print dress from Madam Rage has always been one of my favorite summery dresses to slip on. Its been too long since I could wear them! Also, I'm happy to be wearing these bold, matching orange heels again. They're the first pair I ever got from My Hot Shoes!

I'm so relieved to have gotten a major paper done with this week. What's ironic is how I started and finished it the night before it was due. Then when I showed up to class, it turned out that my teacher decided to postpone the due date for another day! All that procrastination skill gone to waste - I could've waited another night to get it done. ;)

Just kidding! Girls, if you have a procrastination problem, kick it in the butt now. Before its too late and you end up like me. However, I'm pretty proud of how the paper turned out. For Cultural Anthropology, we had to write a six page paper on a new society that we made up. I created a group known as Zodians. In case you couldn't guess, it's a society who base their way of life around the Zodiac. Its a caste system based on each person's astrological sign. What do you think?

Anybody enjoy reading their horoscope?

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10

Honestly? You're adorable and I think this outfit makes that completely apparent. :P The shoes are my favorite. Such a statement piece!

I see you're still loving the henna tattoo there. Maybe you should get a real one ;)

Do I read my horoscope? Naw. I don't believe in cosmic destiny as revealed in the stars, but once in a while I will scan them for a few laughs.


Issa Tchieu said...

Horoscope can be quite addictive when u start believing in it. :) its interesting to know at times. esp personality reading..u cud tell the characteristics of say for example Libran?

Love the verse from Corinthians.

Carla Florendo said...

i hate it when i have to work on a paper so hard, and in a rush, just to find out that the deadline is postponed... haha. happened to me several times already. good luck with school stuff Linda. Im glad im almost done with college.

Cultural anthropology! Ah, how I miss my anthropology days. Sometimes I fantasize about having a job as a lifelong college student. Wouldn't that be fun? You would get paid to go to all the classes you'd ever want to go to at your college of choice. Lol.

This outfit is zesty and bright indeed! I love it! The shoes are phenomenal, and the mustard cardigan is the perfect accent color. I also love this train track/old door location of yours. Idk where it is, but it's so scenic and Americana. Just perfect.


Ann said...

Lovely outfit.
And I like how charming and happy you look in those pics.

Jodie said...

Thank you for the kind comments.
Your knees look really painful but glad you left them in- I like as natural as possible photos
You're shoes are awesome! I love the idea of the zodians I always read my horoscope and try to work it into my day like if it says "you will find great fortunes" I'm bound to pick up a penny somewhere.

anoddgirl said...

hey linda, i'm following you back on gfc :D

Hi Linda, I admire that you are against airbrushing, I am too, and your scars are a sign of your hobby/sport which you are passionate about, which is great! Love the punchy bright colours and adorable print on your dress. How fabulously do the heels match, love it!! I like the topic of your CA project and think thats a really inventive name and idea. Good Luck!

your knees indeed are pretty scary ;) but I totally think scars are something that make us special and remind us of something that has happened. I have several on my knees for example. anyway, it's such a cheerful and pretty ensemble and I looove the bright colours (and your thrifted bag, as always)!

Eeek, Anthropology is so much fun, those were always my favorite classes. The idea of a culture based around the zodiac sounds really fascinating. Heh, I like reading horoscopes and stuff but I always always more interested in the art and design background of it, it is fun to see how crazy the horoscopes are sometimes.)

This out is just stunning on. But it's not like I've sen you wear a bad one!) The colors are really gorgeous and striking, the yellow and the orange together is so pretty and bright and happy looking. And oooooh, those shoes! I swear, you get the best shoes from those guys! I seriously need to go check them out.
