For day 2 of Dress Your Best week, I'm celebrating something you don't often see on the blog: my backside. To be perfectly honest, it's a little scary to put pictures of my derriere on the interwebs, but here we go:

Baby Got Back

I have to give a little shout-out to Chelsea, whose easy-going confidence yesterday gave me the courage to give my own backside today's gold star. While it's sometimes a little awkward to squeeze this booty into pencil skirts, it looks mighty fine in jeans and anything with an a-line. Plus, I have to give it props for being super comfortable on long airplane trips and bicycle rides.

Baby Got Back

P.S. This tee has been serving me well on weekends, but surprisingly hasn't shown up on the blog yet. Yes, the shirt is gimmicky, but I couldn't resist Magritte+bicycle love, so it came home with me.

Props for showcasing your backside! I laughed so hard about its convenience on long airplane trips and bicycle rides. I'll probably still be laughing when I board a plane later today. Great shoes too!

Hah, fantastic! Way to compliment your backside on its practical functionality :)

Love this casual-cool outfit. And what timing! I had literally just opened this to read before checking my Reader and finding this entry here: http://www.publicculture.org/articles/view/22/1/this-is-not-a-pipe-the-treacheries-of-indigenous-housing

I hope I'm not speaking out of turn when I say that this outfit is really sexy. You look confident and easy-going in jeans a t-shirt and cute flats. To me, that's the best! Plus your hair looks amazing!

PS. The second picture isn't showing up for me, but when I click through was able to see it on flickr.

I love this post. You are too cute, and look wonderful embracing your backside (that sounds odd. You know what I mean.)

myedit said...

I will just say...nice bum, where you from?

Kathryn from Schoolmarm Style said...

This outfit looks as great from the front as it does from the back. This is a great classy version of jeans and a T.

caffeinerd said...

Love this! Echoing some of the above---what a great take on jeans and a tee; so chic. Hope you're seeing a light at the end of the FINALS WEEK tunnel.

Larysse Tavares said...

I'm loving this "dress your best" week. This tee is gorgeous and all this greeness behind you, aww, so relaxing :)

Oh, and theres something I'm longing to say to you: your hair-- I love your hair, the color, the apperance (always bright and clean) and I heart the braids you do.

Take care T.

Ohhh who can resist the bicycle shirt? Adorable outfit!

Emily D. said...

As my Southern mama would say, "Woo, girl!" You look amazing in this post- confident, curvy, and in possession of one very fine booty. Love this casual but perfectly fitted outfit. And I get what you mean about the tee, but I love it!

Annelise said...

I love this outfit! Casual, but also very stylish!

Scholar Style Guide said...

If my butt looked like that in jeans, I'd be hard pressed to talk myself into wearing anything else!! And I'll also agree with everyone else who said you have great hair!
