For the final installment of our “Kitty Love” series, we offer all you cat enthusiasts out there a roundup of some practical and oh-so adorable items for your home. WARNING: they might make your real cat jealous.
OK, so over the last few years, I’ve developed a bit of an obsessed with cats. And while I’m realize kitties have become rather trendy, my passion is particularly peculiar considering that I don’t actually own a cat–nor have I ever owned a cat. In fact, I used to be terrified of them.
But anyway, for all the cat owners/enthusiasts out there, I’ve scoured the Web for as many kitty-centric items as I could find and will be presenting them in a three-part installment. So check back over the next few days as I’ll be posting round-ups of feline-adorned apparel as well as home decor.
If you’ve left your house at all lately, chances are you’ve caught a glimpse of a teenaged girl’s belly button and/or ass cheek. With cropped tops and daisy duke shorts having made a huge comeback this summer, there’s far too much (pre)pubescent skin being exposed around town.
Thankfully, there are still some young ladies out there who know how to dress for 90+ temps without looking like a baby prostitute. I took this opportunity to ask my 15 year-old sister to give me a glimpse of some of the more tasteful summer fashions girls her age are–or should be–wearing.
“Summertime is really the only time we get to wear them, but tube tops are easy to pair with a bunch of things, especially if they’re a solid color. I like this skirt because it gives this outfit a fun, festive vibe, and it complements this black top really well. These earrings complete the look and give the outfit an earthy feel.”
“A denim jacket is a good piece to make an outfit more appropriate, and to cover yourself up in case it starts to get chilly at night. I like this red top because it adds a pop of color, and I like to pair it up against this black-and-white striped maxi skirt. Maxi skirts are a nice change from the typical mini-skirts and short shorts you see girls wearing during the summer, and many are still lightweight enough to be worn when the weather is warm.”
“Pastels are very in this summer, so I like to pair this off-white shirt with pleats and frilly sleeves with these pastel-pink jeans. Both pieces gives off a nice girly vibe.”
