Y'all are going to think I'm lying to you all the time. I told you here that the way to run faster was to look cute and wear Nike...

Truth be told, I don't know how to graffiti without getting arrested. What I do know is that 1) I'd be a horrible spray painter because the finger I used to spray with, as well as the top of my arm, were literally sore for the next week, and 2) I graffitied in a place where it was allowed. (Though I did feel cool, like I was Kidult ;) )

Anyway, if you want to graffiti, go to Hope Outdoor Graffiti Park in Austin, Texas!  How silly was I? I showed up to the park without paint. I just was thinking of it more as a photo shoot location instead of actual DIY art. Luckily, I ran into some friends from Baylor and they gave me their leftover paint, so I tagged the wall with "Southern Elle Style". (My boyfriend and I actually tagged the wall too. You can see that pic here)

I thought this was the PERFECT backdrop for my new shorties. I see a lot of shorts with pom-poms that I like, but they are either super short or go up high in the front. I loved these because the pom-poms weren't too obnoxious and they are a reasonable length. PLUS they have pockets. I mean what's not to love?

So, how do y'all feel about the pom-pom trend? Love it or hate it?
