Jamie's Cryin'

My uncle gave me this 1993 Van Halen concert t-shirt while I was up there visiting. It's quite large on me, but I took it as a challenge to try to make it work in an outfit.

shirt: almost vintage Van Halen concert t-shirt; from my uncle
shorts: old navy; thrifted
shoes: xhileration; target
earrings: charming charlie's


I now realize my face looks pretty scary in these pictures. The sun was bright and I was trying to keep my eyes open. Instead, it looks like I'm trying to steal your soul. Sorry.



I figured this post title was appropriate due to the fact that I look like I'm pouting in most of these pictures. For that, I am sorry. I'm usually very smiley! An interesting tidbit about this song: whenever it came on the radio when I was real little I would get all upset and, ironically, start crying. It didn't help that people would start to sing it at me because they thought it was so funny that it upset me. But I wasn't crying! Why were people saying I was? I was a funny child. Good times.

My cool lightning bolt earrings.


When my boyfriend, Matt, came over he started laughing. I asked him what he was laughing at, completely forgetting my experiment with this t-shirt. He just shook his head and asked, "what are you wearing?" Boys.

Yes, I immediately thought you were trying to suck my soul when I looked at these photos. Hehe. You are so silly. Love the band shirt and the bright blue flats. You're definitely rocking the outfit even though the shirt is oversized. Love the color and cut of your hair, too :)
