A Cog In Some Great Machine


Hello there! So, I'm happy to report that I spent today being quite lazy. I woke up, curled my hair, did some reading, then some more reading, and spent lots of time on the internet. I lead a very exciting life, just in case you were wondering. As lazy as my Friday's been, it's nice to have some time to just slow down my pace and do things at my own speed, you know? And now Zak's coming over, and we're going to have pizza for dinner. YES!

In regards to today's outfit, the top half of it was definitely inspired by this post by the lovely Jasmine of Transient Withdrawal. Once I saw how she layered her peter pan collar top underneath her sweater, I knew I had to try it for myself! Also, these shorts are one of the hardest pieces to style in my wardrobe. They're just pretty bold and hard to match, but I was happy with this end result. I felt a little bit like a modern Wednesday Adams with all the dark colors, but that's not necessarily a bad thing right?

Have a good weekend!

  7. I think you nailed it on the shorts, the top is perfect with them. I have a very similar one (addicted to peter pan collars here!) but in taupe.
    I also really like your hair like that!

  10. Eep! Hello cute collar!

    I see what you mean by hard to style shorts. Really, really, bold prints are very hard to remix... but I think the way you've paired them here looks just wonderful!

  13. I have to say, your style is my absolute favorite. You always pair such cute pieces and look completely original, albeit an re-creation of a look, your interpretation, or your creation!

    ps: Lazy days are the cat's pajamas.
