My Mom Tells Me What to Wear and What Not to Wear

I know. I'm 20 years almost 21 years old university student yet my mom still has a tell about what I can and can't wear.

So I was going downstairs for a day out with this shirt and my mom was like 'I can see your bra'
Me : 'Really?' (pretending to be oblivious)
Mom : 'You should wear a tanktop or something'
Me : 'I think all of my tanktop is all dirty'
Mom : 'I have clean tanktops.'
Me : '...'
Mom : 'Take it from my room. Come on. We're running late'
And since she's my mother and I'm living under her roof, I'll try to be on her good side all the time. Therefore I reluctantly put the tanktop on.

Oh well. I guess it's not appropriate to show off your bra. 
However, in my defense, my bra was green too. So it doesn't look like a slut or something. 

I got this shirt from my MIA week. It was love at first sight. It was in the perfect color (some sort-of emerald green, I'm terrible with color names), it's sheer, and it has giraffe prints all over it.

It is strangely printed backwards. But then again, when I look down, I see pretty little giraffes. 
How can I resist?
Shall I give you fun facts about giraffe?
Yes of course.
1. Giraffes only sleep deeply for a few minutes at a time. Sitting on the ground, they bend their long necks down until their heads rest on their hind haunches. 
2. The word "giraffe" comes from an Arabic word, "zirafah", which means "the tallest of all". 
3. Giraffes love company, though. Giraffes will live together in groups of a few dozen to forty or more, all standing tall together.

Not a balcony ( I know I've been calling it porch in the past 2 posts, but I learned I should've called it balcony cause it's up in the air. Confusing? Sorry. I'm trying to be educative here by showing off my dedication to the proper use of architectural terms) post today! 
I basically had to hike to get this picture (it was quite an uphill road) and there were cars and motorcycles passed by and I had to stop in the middle of posing and quickly move my tripod out of the way. Nonetheless, it felt kinda good. Sort of like a workout session. 

Just a little harirology. I haven't done any hairology poses in a while.

Found this poladroid application. I'm loving it!

  23. don't be too upset with your mom, my dad sometimes does that too. I think as long as what they suggest won't make me look less stylish then it's okay, but sometimes I do ignore what they say :p

  25. Well,yeah,I agree with this post with about 50 %. I mean,if you feel confident in a see-trough shirt, go ahead, wear it even tough your mother doesn`t agree.But sometimes,it`s fine to ak for her advice:)
