Quickie before bed/stuffing my face with more exciting nucleic acid metabolism pathways ... this is the crazy "I've-worn-pencil-skirts-past-my-tolerance-threshold" outfit I sported to the grand opening of the H&M store at the Polaris mall in Columbus. Long story short, had a blast though waiting for 2.5 hours to make sure we got prizes - my friend and I got $75 to shop with each! Whole bagful of fall essentials. These $13 H&M flashy things attract unwanted attention in the nightlife scene so I have to remember not to wear things that lure drunken undergrad boys - apparently one is safer wearing a skintight short dress. I call 'em my dalmatian pants and a friend pointed out that makes me like an angsty teenage Cruella DeVille. I'll take it. She was so scary as I was obsessed with 101 Dalmatians in elementary school. Whopping size 8 btw - that's how badly I wanted these pants. There was no way my butt was squeezing into a 2 and that was the only other pair left.

Threw on a thrifted denim vest that I got for $5 in San Jose and my hair pulled up into a high side ponytail. Add a golden spiked chain necklace and pile on the arm candy (which I rarely ever do because it's so clunky and in the way of everything productive) and we can call it a day. Last but not least my new kicks - so comfy because the pitch is not high at all. They feel like flats and are actually more comfortable since I managed to get a bleeding blister on my foot heel from new loafers. Man did I exude the badass in these shots. Now I'm getting gutsy enough to park my tripod in the middle of my apartment complex where all my hidden neighbors can see. Sense of shame? What shame?

Yesterday I saw my first real-real patient at the Columbus Free Clinic and had a great experience. Pretending like I know what's going on when I have no clue ... working on that pokerface. Today was a few hours freezing in 55 degree lecture hall, then off to the 100 degree sauna of my car to run errands ironically for my car. Looking forward to seeing JJ arrive tomorrow for the long weekend and going to get infamous ice cream and gallery hopping before Cedar Point!

Readers - have you worn any animal prints besides leopard and zebra?

Do animal motifs sporadically thrown on an outfit count? Haha! If so, I've been sporting cats and owls. I like leopard prints, but I'll keep those on my scarves. I love the print of your pants! Have you thought about getting them tailored so that they fit better? I've done that so many times at H&M. -_- I see a pretty blazer "oh size 10? no biggie" only to realize later on that I should've just left it on the rack.

Love your badass carefree attitude in the 1st shot! The pants are awesome paired with the jean vest. Love the glasses pin and looks great with those boots you mentioned to me. Are these taken outside your new digs in OHIO? Have a great weekend with the BF!
