fact vs. romance

There are two possible narratives for these photos - I'll let you be judge of which one seems more plausible.
Romance: Sultry summer weather calls for simple pieces in classic silhouettes.
Fact: When it's hot and sticky, grab whatever is on top of my rapidly dwindling pile of clean laundry and call it an outfit. (Bonus points if it successfully covers all the rude bits.) Accessorize with whatever necklace was left sitting on the kitchen table from the other day. No makeup.
Romance: A quiet, residential street in Prenzlauerberg makes for a lovely backdrop.
Fact: We took these on our street, on the way to the grocery store. Scenic! (But isn't that motorcycle bitchin'?)
Romance: A sweetly feminine updo is the perfect complement to a classic t-shirt.
Fact: I am really itching for a haircut. My bangs are way too long, and I'm pretty tired of the bun-everyday routine.
Romance: Sometimes it's better to be brief - brevity is the soul of wit.
Fact: I had a raging headache, the sun was in my eyes, and everybody was a little cranky today. We did not take very many photos, and of those we did take, I am making an awful goober face in 80%. Six hours later, I still have that headache.
