Rebel Without a Thing to Do

Another day off, and I wasn't sure what to do with myself. I wanted to go out so threw on my raw wash jeans and a plain white tank. I always feel pretty James Dean in plain jeans and a plain tee! All I did was grab lunch at Del Taco and wander aimlessly through TJ Maxx (not a single purchase or try-on, I am definitely doing better about that!) and rock out a little in the car. 

Now I am home, and I'm going to put on my swim suit and read in a lawn chair outside. :)

Had a hard time with harsh midday light again, since I can only prop the camera up in a few places. I like the shots I got of my accessories, though.

PS: I still cannot stop raving about ImPress press-on manis and pedis! I am totally useless to give myself a pedicure, and I am too cheap to have them done on a regular basis. Plus, I destroy all nail polish within 1 day and end up wearing chipped, horrible nails until I can garner enough will to sit down and scrub off the polish with acetone - doesn't sound like much, but for me it's A Chore. The ImPress go on in seconds, look perfect for a week, and then come off in seconds with no color bleed or yellowing of the nails. THIS is the reason my sky is falling down - I am finally okay with wearing open-toed sandals. 

If you are interested, please buy some up so that they never stop making these! ;)

    Tell me more about these nails! I can't stand polish on my fingernails, but I am intrigued with this.

    Love the "pedi" and the bag! So fun. Man, I am so jealous of wearing a tank and not getting frostbite!

    Ceit, I have been calling it an approximation of a press-on gel mani. The "nails" are not as thick or stiff as traditional press-ons, but they are thicker and much more durable and easy to work with than the Sally Hansen Effects polish strips (which I also tried and destroyed in a day, same as regular polish). The ImPress have a sticker-like backing that you peel off, then you just press the polish onto your nail.

    Hm -- might be worth trying then! Thanks, rae!

    Cute bag and I love the gold shoes with your outfit!

  • rachylou replied 6 years ago

    Lol, I just like your thread title. The outfit is good though. Jimmy Dean for the new age!

    I will have to try these press on's. You look cute for your Del Taco run.

    Ha! I like it! Now you just need a disenchanted sneer....

  • rabbit replied 6 years ago

    You look great in a tank.  Love the kitty bag too.  I might also need to try these on my toes.

    Great look, excellent kitty bag, thanks for the pedi referral. I'm totally with you there--I can't maintain a pedi for more than 24 hours without trashing it. I don't know how so many women do it.
