H&M beige boyfriend blazer (Euro 8) // Old Navy ruffle sleeve top (XS) // Forever 21 skinny jeans (26) //
Here is one epically old work outfit from early October 2010. Yeah, that's like half a year ago. Better late than never, right? I miss the lush green leaves of the Midwest in early fall and now I'm college-sick too. 5 days until I'm back in St. Louis and back to the grind. Speaking of which, my brother told me of a coffeeshop right down our street called "It's a Grind." Isn't that cute and punny? Just the way I like it. It's sad that I didn't notice this or much of anything in San Diego the whole two years I've been here. I'm determined to have a super productive med school application day tomorrow with a good cup of Joe. Life has been incomplete without coffee.
A shoutout to a true fashionista and makeup artist, Alice. Her flattering paragraph to so many of our university's fashionable girls (and guys) made me laugh and smile. You should definitely, definitely keep blogging and share your chic fashion sense with the world. Congrats on graduating and we'll miss you! Hello and welcome to any WashU peeps reading this too : )
This boyfriend blazer at first seemed to large but when I recently tried it with the sleeves rolled up they didn't look too oversized on me anymore. However, in these photos I'm swimming in it (no wonder - it's a size 8). Also, it's not actually white like the exposure might suggest, but a light beige colour. I love throwing on a blazer for a more professional look but dressing down the look with jeans. I splurged at Aldo too in the fall on these nude pumps (mainly because I was ecstatic they had a size 5). The colour is very flattering but the almond toe shape squeezing my circulation is not. When I took it back to the store to get it fixed on their special leather-stretching machine for a few hours, nothing really fixed. The size 5 is slightly big on me and gaps at the heel, no surprise since recently I confirmed that I'm actually a size 4.5 in women's.
Believe it or not, I woke up at 8 AM today to run errands and let some beautiful sunshine hit my photoreceptors. Hopefully this will shift me from my incorrigible inclination towards nocturnalism. Still have a to-do list of fun left to turn into a to-done list, consisting of trips to the beach, zoo, mall, and possibly Sea World before I head back into the fray of tornadoes and thunderstorms. My heart goes out to those in Joplin, Oklahoma, Arkansas. Take shelter underground and wear your ruby red slippers for good luck in case you're whisked off to Oz!
