This week is finally over

And I am absolutely exhausted. In addition to mind-draining band rehearsals, also stiflingly early morning classes and Senior Sunrise that I got up around 5 in the morning for today(totally worth it!). Came home after school and errands, took an hour-ish long nap, washed my car, and laid around rereading Brave New World for my English class.

Feeling uninspired + tired = basic outfits.

lily allen tee, unknown brand. f21 school vest. bubblegum jeans. nike dunks.

I get lots of compliments on these shoes, but I think it's more so because of the fact that I do not wear any kind of urban footwear (LRG + 30 pairs of Nikes ftw >_>) besides this. Hmmm. These pants also have the sweetest material ever -- shame they're a size too big. Maybe I should make the bottom tighter, possibly jodhpur? Or just awkward experiment?

And doesn't it just irk you when you find something fun on the rack and it looks horrendous on you?

target dress.

I also purchased this weird oversized hoodie thing with a cowl neck and cropped sleeves and exposed zippers. I tried it on and stared at it for the longest time in the mirror, and went ahead with the purchase, since it's definitely not like anything else I have. All I've thought about wearing with it so far is just tights. Lots and lots of tights.

It's finally getting colder in my city, which I should be happy about. I was super super excited for layers and shtuff, but it finally hit me that I don't even have a decent winter wardrobe. *headdesk* So here's my question:

What are some must-have winter basics?

16 hours of rehearsing this weekend... I'll try and update with more outfits soon. xo

Ballerina casual?

A religious user of weather.com, I checked the website last night and this morning to see that the weather today was going to be a sweltering 91 degrees. Granted, this isn't sweltering compared to some heats that my city have seen (114, anyone? *dies*), but for middle of September? Let me wear my delicious layers already!!

But I made do.

cami, thrifted. belt, vintage. skirt, vintage.

Sorry about the bad lighting, but better photographs will come soon, I promise!

Goodnight, lovelies. xo S.

Outfits, outfits, outfits

The first two weeks of my senior year in high school (12th grade, for any international readers) has left me super super busy that I've neglected my poor old blog. :( Fortunately, I have some outfit pictures to post! :) I'm going to try and keep it all short and sweet.

My first outfit, for the first day of school. So. Effing. Hot.

Second outfit, again... super hot.

Third outfit, I wore this after my friend wore a shirt-dress, and we both decided on a collective day of shirt-dresses! We love confusing people. I did get a compliment from a friend, "I like your sh--, dress!" Haha.

Fourth outfit. I don't even know how I conceived this one. I know I wanted to wear blue leggings (much brighter irl) and white dress but it was far too short.. and then I wanted to try on the b/w polka dot pencil skirt and I hadn't taken off the white dress yet and blam I get this? Accidental outfits, ftw. I wore this to my friend's birthday girls-night-out (and yes that's a limo in the back!).

1- tank, hanes. belt, ??? came with a pair of old jeans. skirt, citiwear (trendy teen store).
2- shirt, arizona jean co. (mervyn's). belt, mervyn's. shorts, ??? don't remember.
3- shirt-dress, ally b. (mervyn's). belt, vintage.
4- dress, wet seal. belt, vintage. skirt, thrifted. tights, secondhand. shoes, mossimo/target. bag, a.n.a. (from mama). slip (not seen), handmade.

I've made a few purchases, most recently these earrings in black/silver from f21 in the midst of my birthday shopping for friends. Tryyying not to buy stuff (for myself) but it's so hard. :(

And what is it with me wanting to wear skirts and dresses all this week? I know it's a weird thing to think, but a little tidbit about myself: I play the cello. And for those of you who don't know, playing the cello requires you to sit down with your legs straddling the instrument. Aka me having to bring shorts with me everywhere I go, haha. Oh the things I do for fashion.

Anyhow, that's all I got so far. Btw, if you'd liked to be added to my blogroll, leave a comment. Have a good day, lovelies.
