An American Affair

I'm not the kind of person to learn a lesson by being judged and told. Needless to say, the last time I wore a "patriotic"  jumper on the blog, I was bombarded with negativity on some Facebook page I didn't even sign up for. I'm not American though I secretly wished I was, not because being Asian isn't cool cause heck, we rock!. I only longed for a reason to explain my obsession for American flags ergo my penchant for the apparels. But wait... who ever  said I have to? I can want what I want without explanation and the rest of the photos are proof. Sorry to disappoint those losers but much to their chagrin,  I'm still rather amused. 

Yesterday afternoon, I happily wandered around in short shorts and this USA tank top. It's a warm day, people! And yes, I'm aware that I talk about the weather more often that I wear high heels, but I do appreciate a fine day when I can both cover and bare my body at the same time. Don't we all? It's one of the many reasons I want to move to California with Penguin. The main to be reunited with my other self, Desiree. Another to chase our dreams. Although really, I think I watched too much of The Hills, it has gotten me a little mental. But you can bet my American affair doesn't stop here. Don't even get me started on burgers and fastfood, save for another day.

And while my musings don't benefit you at all, I'd like to thank ya'll for reading my posts(if you do anyway). But if you like photos rather, feel free to check out Penguin's tumblr by clicking here. I'm not the only one obsessing, you know (the New Era snapback is his). It's safe to say he's got better taste than I, and I'm proud. 

Cheers, Carla
