Ian and I spent the Fourth of July at his parents' house. We BBQ'd and taught his parents beer pong and watched fireworks! Ian was kind enough to take photos of my outfit, as he has gotten very good at doing. He wishes for me to start crediting him so here you go my love. I am wearing a dress I made, which you can probably tell. These off-the-shoulder numbers are everywhere and I love them, but they always seem so easy to make. They are basically just tubes of fabric and some elastic, so I was like "WELL I CAN DO THAT." So I did! The fabric is a bit heavy and I still might trim the length, but I like it overall. And yet again wearing a ribbon as a choker because no one, I repeat NO ONE, should be buying strips of solid fabric for actual money from Topshop when you can just get some ribbon for 99 cents. I have strong feelings about this. Anywho please enjoy some photos in which I rather effectively hide my horrendous sunburn I got from wearing a neckline like this and also my guest model Mowgli the cocker spaniel puppy. I should really just include dogs in all my posts, right?
A note on "Independence Day": I generally think of the Fourth of July as a celebration of summer, family, and friends. I rarely connect it to America these days because to be quite honest, I'm not super proud to be an American a lot of the time. This country can be very very fucked up and recently it has felt downright frightening. The deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile are weighing heavy on my heart and many others'. I hope our country can wake up and change very soon. It's hard to know what to say in times like these and I'm sure me posting about it on my blog of like 100 mostly-non-American followers doesn't help much, but all I can think to say is Black Lives Matter.
