grass fairy

In high school I played soccer for two years (midfielder - wha-what! Well, except for the time that we were beating the other team like 10 to 0 and our coach told us to stop scoring. Our goalie was bored and wanted to play so she took my spot and I went in the goal. I was a gymnast and promptly started doing backflips across the goal. My coach yelled at me and told me I was being unsportsmanlike... what?) Um, anyway, everyone called us "the grass fairies"... which was silly because we were pretty hardcore - our chant before the game was "Blood makes the grass grow, kill, kill, kill" which was a joke, but still, we were tough. Also, one time I got stung by a fuzzy bumblebee on the back of the knee in a tournament and I had never been stung by a bee before and I have a ton of crazy allergies. I told my coach and he said "Smear some mud on it and get back to your post." I'm done talking about soccer forever, I swear. That's all the stories.

This skirt was begging for a b&w look, but I told it to shut up and then I put on some color.
 Tank - little boys Fruit of the Loom
Sweater - Target
Tights - crazy outlet store by my house
Shoes - MIA

Byyyyyye kids, I'm gonna go start reading Other Voices, Other Rooms.

Way to lay down the color law, doll!

When we were ahead like that we are told to pass the ball. Keep passing it. Then it looks more like "keep away" I think more embarrassing for the other team.

Love the color and the scallop pattern on your skirt!
