OOTD: Spikes, Studs and a Skull

Finally got a day where the sun was out, it was warm and the wind wasn't enough to knock me over. I was beginning to think winter was never going to end! The goth look isn't always easy to pull off in warm weather but I've added some more sun friendly pieces,

The flowy tank top is from H&M, Shorts are from Infectious Threads, tights are Leg Avenue and boots are from GoJane.

I love these tights to death but they are humongous on me, I can pull them all the way up and over my boobs! The joys of being short...

I love my Demonia Riot 20s but knee high boots are best left to cooler weather.

These pleather shorts are not going to be the most comfortable once it really starts getting warm but they're great for spring. The studs are actually sewn on like buttons rather than having little prongs on the other side that inevitably come up and stab you. The button broke the first time I wore them but I put a new one on.

I got these boots from GoJane when they sent me a 40% off coupon. I think I paid about $22 for them. They are not great quality but they are comfortable at least. I replaced the shitty laces they came with with regular flat laces so they stay tied. The soles of these leave a lot to be desired, there is little tread and they don't grip well. I have to be careful walking on smooth tile floors because I slide around as if I were wearing socks.

I also wore my bird skull necklace. I bought this years ago off Etsy and I don't remember the seller's name. These bird skull charms are pretty generic though.

I do like that this one has a decent chain and has a more natural bone color than some of the other bird skull necklaces I've seen around.
