sushi and superman

On thing I've learned this week is that I am so white.
This isn't a racial/Caucasian announcement, obviously I know I've always been white. But my skin is pale right now, guys.
I've never been a super serious tanner, or even a mildly interested tanner. I know that "tanner" means someone who is employed to tan animal skins, but for the sake of this conversation it's going to be a girl who tans herself. 

I've never wanted to spend the money on a monthly tanning bed sort of habit, and though I've spent my fair share of hours by the pool in the sunshine, I've always thought the upkeep was too frustrating.
There's also that whole skin cancer thing, which I think is a pretty big deal.
I'm fine with being milky white, really. But boy, at this point in the year, I think I'm approaching translucent. 

Top: Francesca's (shop!), Shorts: Gianni Bini/Dillard's, Necklace: Cookie Lee, Watch: Fossil

These leather shorts were a winter sale purchase at Dillard's this past Christmas.
I was constantly on the lookout for interesting tights-with-shorts experiments. I never ended up wearing them with tights, but ironically I've worn them twice this spring/summer.
It hasn't really been summery hot yet, so that's probably why. In any case, I love the stars on them and they're funky in a way that I like!
Faux leather is always intriguing to me. Where do you draw the line between a great accent/texture piece and a super weird/tacky piece of clothing? I guess it all just boils down to each individual person and their tastes.
Speaking of tastes - I went on a hunt for a vest this afternoon (mostly because of this outfit worn by Mara on M Loves M) and I think I found the perfect one. I can't wait for these next few weeks, as I'm going to be embarking on another closet challenge, which I'll post about later.

Last night we went on a fantastic date night to see the new Superman movie, Man of Steel.
We're both suckers for comic book and super hero movies, so we couldn't help but hop off to the theaters on opening day for this new one! (And I couldn't help but dress to match - red and blue it is!)
Beforehand we went to our favorite sushi spot, so it became a theme date - Sushi and Superman.

Needless to say, it was a great evening! I love date nights!

Stay tuned for the rest of June - I've decided on a summer challenge! I posted yesterday about trying to find a new challenge, so here it is: for the next 15 days, I'm going to be taking 15 different items from my closet, and compiling a different outfit for every day using only those items! Wish me luck!
