FASHION // didn't you hear, there's a hurricane coming

Hurricane Irene — who will be demoted to Tropical Storm Irene by the time she gets up here to Maine — is coming. Everything is windy and rainy.

And I'm going shopping with my friend. I'm not even going to spend any money. She wants me there, she'll buy me something, I'm in.

So far nothing exciting has happened, and this being Maine — The Most Boring Place On Earth (™) — I sort of doubt that it will. But just in case our power does go out for a few hours / a few days / a few million years, a surprise guest poster will be supplying reading material for you tomorrow. The weeklygiveaway will be put on hold until next week — starting school and everything is just too crazy for me to be doing all that. But hey, extra week to enter the current one if you haven't already!

Today I'm dressed in rainy-day hurricane colors.

tights & belt: unknown // top & shorts: forever xxi // shoes: Steve Madden


xoxo.



EDITED AT 4:30pm:
Well, there's some rain. And some wind — a lot of wind. But nothing hurricane-worthy so far. We haven't even lost power. (Though on the way back from the mall one of the traffic lights was out!)
So basically I'm just chilling in my new threads (heheh aren't I gangsta?). You can't see it in the photo, but I got some cute little gym shorts with a tribal print on them — love. Plus a black tank top and this sweater from H&M.
This is basically how I'll be spending the rest of the day. Looking out the window in slippers and my sweater.


UPDATE 9:00am — THE NEXT MORNING
Nothing happened. Nothing at all. There was some wind last night and now there isn't a cloud in the sky. We didn't lose power. No branches dropped from our millions of trees. The "hurricane", to be honest, didn't seem to different from a nor'easter  (see here if you don't know what that is), except the wind was warm instead of cold.
