Ever since I was a kid, I’ve loved rainbows. The easiest way to get me to buy something is to slap a rainbow on it (bonus points if it’s a pastel rainbow instead of the usual super bright ROYGBIV). I was teased occasionally when I was younger for wearing bright, colorful clothing, but kids can be jerks about anything, especially in middle school. (Some of the teasing had a homophobic tinge to it, which is gross because bullying people for their perceived sexual orientation is wrong.) It just made me more determined to dress the way I want, because who cares what people think?
I saw this sweater from Sugarhill Boutique and just knew I had to get it! I really love their sweaters; they’re perfect for warm days and cool nights in Los Angeles. I get cold easily but hate heavy sweaters, so this is the perfect thickness for me.
Back to the rainbows: June is also Pride month and LA Pride was a few weeks ago. In honor of that, I wore this rainbow themed outfit and took photos in front of this very colorful mural in Pasadena. It’s on the side of a building on the South campus of the ArtCenter College of Design, in case you were wondering. The artist RISK has painted several huge color walls throughout LA.
These shoes from TUK Footwear are so comfortable and adorable! I have several pairs of novelty ballet flats from them and always get compliments whenever I wear them.
I also got a rainbow gel manicure! I may have overdone it with the rainbows in this post, heh.
I hope everyone had a safe and fun Pride, wherever you live!
