Dark florals

So it's my birthday tomorrow (or today, or it's already passed, depending on when you're reading this). I'm not a fan of being fussed over on birthdays. I just don't really see the big deal at this age. Essentially, it's about congratulating me on managing to successfully inhale and exhale for another year. Yeah thanks, but I think I'll make it. As kids, we're taught that it's not about gifts, but I freaking love getting free stuff on my birthday. Last month, I signed up for about half a dozen newsletters that send you free food/drinks as a birthday gift. I now have about half a dozen food items that I'll be shamelessly collecting next week.


I also received an early gift to myself, from myself. Floral shorts! I've been waiting a good pair for a long time, but I haven't been able to find a pattern that I really loved at a good price until now. I like how the touches of black make make the floral pattern more edgy. That's the problem with most patterns- too much summerific joy going on. As you can see, I'm a ball of sunshine and totally appreciate cheerful patterns.
