Mellow Yellow

Mellow Yellow_1 Mellow Yellow_2 Mellow Yellow_3 Mellow Yellow_4

Wearing:
Vintage yellow wool sweater
Vintage oversized pearl necklace
Joe's Jeans roll up shorts
White polka dot tights
White leather Keds
Clinique lipgloss & lipstick duo (Mystique & Shy)

If my knees look puffier and pinker than usual, it's because they are.  I fell and scraped both knees, which is totally annoying.  It makes getting dressed a lot harder because I have to dodge my puffy bloody knees.  Ugh...

Speaking of dodging disgusting things...this week is National TSA Opt Out and Film week.  If you're traveling this week and you happen to be picked by some TSA agent to be radiated or "patted down," you  should know that you actually have the right to refuse.  You can opt out and participate in this event by recording and uploading the video to youtube.  I won't be flying this week, but if I were flying...you can bet your stilettos I would be opting out and recording it.  I don't know about you guys, but being felt up by a stranger doesn't sound fun AT ALL.  Especially when they don't change their gloves...after they touch people's underwear...and beyond.  Yes...they even touch crotches!  Sometimes they go inside people's underwear.  Look it up if you don't believe me.  There is a picture floating around the internet where TSA agents even looked inside a baby's diaper.  Google it.  And poor Miss America claimed that they went inside her when they searched her.  You can google that too.

This is the kind of thing that can get worse if we let it.  We shouldn't have to choose between the lesser of two evils (naked body scanner vs. public grope down).  That isn't freedom.

"Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security." - Benjamin Franklin

xoxo and Happy grope-free Thanksgiving!

  19. I'm sorry about your knees! :( I Hope you feel better soon.

    I think your tights totally make this outfit :)

    Also...um.. TSA peeps - totally not cool. When they hire these people, do they do background checks?! what if these ppl want the TSA job for those exact reasons?! The "touching" is getting way out of control. I agree: "Bite the hand the feels you" In any other situation this would be called sexual harrassment, or worse.

  30. You look so adorable, the white tights are hard to pull off but you've done it so effortlessly. Yes, sometimes travelling can make you feel a bit violated going through security. xo

  31. Love your tights!!! They look so fun against the denim shorts. Thanks for the TSA info! I'm about to head to the airport and hoping I don't get "chosen" for a pat down!
