While I'm styling this blouse from The Phrenzy I figured I'd take this opportunity to remind you of some coupon codes that I've got for you guys!
      • At THE PHRENZY: use code "wearabouts" for 10% off of your order!
      • At MY HOT SHOES: use code "rory2" for 20% off of your order!
Both places offer good quality stuff for under 20 dollars! At my hot shoes, you can get the white wedges I've been wearing for 19.99!! They even have shoes for under ten dollars!!!

I'm also playing in a summer soccer league with my school team, which started up yesterday. It felt so good to get back out on the field after a few month hiatus from playing in games (I've still been training). It's weird--I was thinking about it, and I don't know that much about the bloggers behind the blogs I read (other than where they shop :P ). To me, and to readers in general, all they are is someone who posts an outfit every so often. You don't always realize that they are actually doing stuff, too. I mean, I obviously didn't go and play soccer in this outfit...but when I think about it, I haven't really talked to you that much about soccer!

With the true soccer season fast approaching, I figure now's a good time as any.

I'm the starting varsity goalkeeper for my school's team which means I stand in the big rectangular box and prevent the ball from going in. Or try to, anyways. It's harder than it sounds! And when I play goalie, I'm very unstylish. I wear men's pants with big padding on the sides that makes my hips look huge. I wear a long-sleeved, baggy shirt that is also meant for a man. Also, I wear a mouthguard and headgear (safety FIRST) as required of me by my dad ("just protecting your BRAIN, Rory") and smelly gloves to catch the ball with. It makes for a good look, right?

This picture is about a year old, before the addition of my beloved headgear to my game attire. But I assure you, it only adds to my already stylish look.

What do you do that most of your readers didn't know about/realize?

Don't forget to enter the giveaway...TEN WINNERS, guys, TEN!!!



  1. First, I love those shorts and your fedora. And I love Target. Target is literally behind my house and I go there way too much.
    Great job making Varsity!
    Love, Evan

  2. I love your outfit! I love how you described your look when you're on the field. Don't worry, you're not alone, I used to look like a mess in volleyball and basketball practice!

    There's a $50 Shabby Apple gift card giveaway on my blog if you're interested! :)

  3. Can't believe those shorts are from Target! They're a dead ringer for the Alice and Olivia pair I've been eyeing all season! Great find hun!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  4. This is such a cute outfit, I love the printed high waisted shorts with the bright colored flats! And the hat adds a nice summer time feel to this outfit :) That's so cool that you are a varsity goal keeper, soccer seems really fun. I was always really bad at soccer (and basketball...and football...and basically every sport except swimming)

    And, how is the lifeguarding going? I was going to be a swim instructor for little kids this summer(instead of lifeguarding) but I ended up not doing that...maybe next summer...
    I have been thinking the same thing, I was one of those bloggers who never posted anything about themselves on their blogs. But not anymore :P, the post I just posted like 20ish minutes ago actually has words in it! YAY.

  5. I love it when bloggers open up about stuff outside their fashion blogging! It's nice having a peek inside their real life moments. Way to go with soccer Rory! Have fun this summer and play hard. Being goalie is tough. I used to play soccer but it didn't click with me like volleyball and basketball did. I played for my school's team all three years I was there. Now I'm craving a sport but since none are going on right now, I've just been hitting the gym to try and stay active. I've worked up to running 3 miles every time I go now. Trying to reach 5!
    Haha, anywaaaay, about your outfit! :) Another cute one Rory, I love those shorts! They go perfectly with your new top from Phrenzy. Very perfectly color coordinated with the flats too.

  6. I love the printed shorts with the black shirt :)

    Nice to hear about your soccer! I don't really share much on my blog but I guess the one thing readers don't know is just how full my wardrobes are. Yes plural! I have so much yet wear the same pieces over and over, I really need to clean out more often!

    Being a goalie actually sounds like a pretty stressful part of the team to me--so good job to you for playing that! I'm sure you'll do just wonderful. :)
