in the alley

 So we decided to have a little photo shoot in the alley, post Jenny and I attempting to go bike riding. Yet again. Last time, after we finally got the midget bike (a.k.a. a bike Natalie or I used when we were like 10, a.k.a. the size Jenny is now) out of the garage, we found it had no air in the tires and neither of us was crafty enough to figure out the bike pump. Or remember to bring money with us when we went to (multiple) gas stations to attempt to use a working air pump. We're awesome. But today, even though dad put air in the tires, the handlebars were too short and we didn't know how to fix them, and Jenny is a bit of a weeny and was worried her back would hurt if we went on an actual bike ride. So I suppose I will be going solo, now that she's at work.

 Sisters. Aren't we cute? Natalie doesn't like this photo, but I think she looks gorgeous. How could you not with hair like hers? Just kidding, she would be gorgeous even without her amazing hair :)

 Don't know the outfit credits for Jenny, but isn't her shirt cute? Apparently she got it from her roommate in exchange for a black cardigan. A good trade, no? I love the back.

teva flip flops

And now we get to me. Oh goodness. I really need to find a good pair of summer sandals. Problem is I still need supportive shoes, and when we went to DSW and asked for the more "supportive" sandals, apparently that was code for "ugly." I actually couldn't imagine wearing any of them in public. I think I might just suck it up and buy myself a cute pair. It's been almost half a year! You'd think I could wear normal shoes right now, and supportive flip flops just aren't cutting it for me in the fashion department right now.

Isn't it weird how we can all look at photos that others tell us we look perfectly fine in and think that they are absolutely horrible? I made Natalie and Jenny pick which photos to use of me on the blog, I'm just to biased against pictures of myself... so why did I decide to make a website devoted to pictures of myself? Very good question...

 Have a lovely Monday! xo
