I'm Blue! (da ba dee)

Does anyone other than me remember this song? I thought it was fitting because my color pallet of the day seems to be blues and grays. I got these trousers and this vintage cardigan at the $2 GoodWill sale last Friday and Saturday. I've been meaning to try out the "men's pant" trend, and although I wasn't sure how it would look on me, I really love the style. How do you think I did? My legs aren't as skinny or long as the rest of you pant wearing gals, but I think it worked!

Unfortunately I got home an hour later than planned and missed the sun go behind the hill by about 10 minutes! :( So, no pretty sun ray photos today. Those are hard to do every outfit post! Thus, here is the normal deck! I dunno - even though it's boring, all deck photos turn out better than most in other locations of my yard...haha.

Anyway, I have a photo-related question for you! Do you guys like my photo sizes? This is the largest I've made them. Do you think they're too big? Or do they fit? Let me know, please! Also, I've decided to go about posting photos based on personal quality vs. quantity. I'm only going to put up the photos that I, for the most part, 100% like - because when I put up ones I'm not sure about, I always feel very uncomfortable about my blog and how it looks and such. :( I'm weird. Let it be known.

Happy Tuesday! I'm beat. Long day at school+the gym+headache= well, you know, I'm sure!
