Gold Motel

Gold Motel signed t-shirt from 2011 concert, Kimchi Blue lace skirt, Target tights, Kimchi Blue boots
Hair: down, air dried
This outfit is actually over a week old, but for some reason I never posted it. It was a Friday, and I was in the mood to try not tucking my shirt in. It's a little awkward looking and not at all flattering to leave it completely untucked, so I opted for a partial tuck. Proves that I've got a waist, but also way too cool to care about whether my shirt is tucked or not. Right? (Not really.) But I liked how it turned out! Unfortunately ended up staying in this night, though it would have been the perfect look for typical Friday outings. I may have to put it on again some night.

Blue on Blue on Blue

thrifted Brooks Brothers sweater, vintage belt, H&M dress, Target oxfords
Hair: curled, bangs pinned
Blue on blue is just a classic fall-back when I'm in need of some color, but can't come up with anything creative. (Swap out the blue sweater for a gray one and you've essentially got an old outfit of mine.) It really is a lot brighter this way, though. When the sun finally comes out after a long winter, it's hard not to want to put on something a little more cheery!
PS. I've been catching up on a lot of tumbling over break, so be sure to stop by my tumblr if you haven't been in awhile.

The Beginnings of Spring

Gap striped top, Gap denim shorts, Converse All Stars, J.Crew socks
Hair: simple ponytail
My sincerest apologies for the lack of posts recently - it's been a busy week or so, with midterms and meetings and packing for spring break. This was a day where the weather was suddenly fantastically warm - I switched into shorts and chucks when I was originally wearing a skirt and loafers. I wanted to play some frisbee, but it was too windy, so I settled for reading my book outside and gossiping with some friends on the quad. Just as nice!
Nothing but good memories from this day - all of the stress of the week instantly vanished when I stepped out and felt the warm wind. It seemed to be the same for everyone else on campus, too - good vibes all around!

Meow's It Going?

Gifted t-shirt, H&M shorts, Forever 21 belt, Target tights, Target oxfords, Banana Republic coat
Hair: air dried yesterday
I'd almost forgotten how much I love the classic t-shirt + skirt/dress shorts combo. It used to be my go-to but I feel like I never wear it anymore! I think I'm going back to wearing that more again.

Beary Blue

BDG button down top, Delia's Morgan jeans, Banana Republic cardigan, Crown Vintage loafers, Banana Republic coat (bear hat from a college event)
Hair: down, air dried two days ago
I love wearing this shirt with jeans; it's like denim on denim with less risk. Cardigan and coat to ensure that I stayed nice and warm, although I think the coat was overkill in the afternoon. Does anyone have a solution to the sleeve bunching in cardigan problem? These sleeves aren't long enough to hold flat, but they're not short enough to not be a problem, either. I couldn't figure out a fix, so I just ignored it today. Bleh. Threw in a picture of me in a bear hat for the fun of it; there was a school event and they gave them out! It is super cozy and yes, I'm still wearing it right now.
