Half Awake In Our Fake Empire

So, this morning's got me feeling like a huge klutz. I kept dropping things like my CAMERA which is thankfully okay and I even left my wallet at home. Hooray! I'm going to blame it on getting hardly any sleep last night due to my worries due to my poetry class due to my teacher. So, really, it's his fault right? Glad we're all in agreement. Oh, it's really my fault that I worry so much, so even in jest I shouldn't pin my anxiety on anyone but myself. School's got me feeling all sorts of incompetent, but mainly my poetry class is making me insane. My teacher gave me a lecture about participating in class AND LIFE and kept calling on me all class because I wouldn't raise my hand. Also, my only thoughts for today's poetry assignment are to write a poem addressed to a homeless man that bumped into me in Manhattan. I don't even know, okay. Maybe I'll share it if I go completely crazy, which I'm sure I will by class tomorrow.

Anyway, now that I've whined/ talked about hobos for a good five minutes, I should talk about my clothes. I picked up not one, but two of these cardigans on sale at Urban Outfitters after seeing one on Michal's blog the other day. I'm actually wearing one again today because they're just so comfy and warm, and it's freezing out, and at 7 AM I want comfy and warm and nothing else. Well, maybe a bagel, too.

Top, Belt: Delia's
Skirt, Sweater, Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Tights: Hue

Until Tomorrow,


  1. Can you instead write a poem about your poetry teacher and how he's giving you a complex? Perhaps then he'll lay off for awhile :)

    You look cute as a button in this outfit! I just love the pattern on the skirt <3


  2. That cosy cardigan is great! I love sale items.

  3. cute outfit! that cardi looks amazing!!
    and i know what you mean with worrying, happens to me all the time!


  4. I love the skirt and that top!!! very nice! I doubt you're really a klutz at all.

  5. Oh, I hate when teacher pick up one student and try to find all the mistakes on them. This happened to me with my geography teacher :/

    Anyway, the cardi really looks so comfy! And you skirt is so cute, which is pretty normal in your posts, but I had to tell you anyway :D

  6. I hate it when lecturers pick out one person and hassle them, it is so unfair! Everyone has their off days!

    The pattern on that skirt is fantastic, and I'm so jealous of that cozy cardigan!


  7. Sorry it sounds like your teacher (excuse my french) is being kind of a douche. I had a Spanish teacher like that. I'm the type of person who gets A's and doesn't participate. I think teachers hate that so they call on me too much.

  8. Ha, I hate fickle teachers! Great outfit, it looks like the perfect outfit for spring. :D

  9. Man, I need a nice cardigan like this.

    Seriously, it looks so comfy! Glad your camera is ok :D

    Just found your blog! It put a smile on my face, so I started following you.

  10. That cardi looks so cute and cozy!

    Geez, your teacher sounds like a meanie. I'm so sorry you had to go through that. I can imagine he means well but I don't think that's the best approach. Hope poetry class gets better.

  11. oh i just love yoru cardigan, it is so adorable and looks so cozy!! i am sorry about your teacher he sounds like a bit of douche, i hope your class gets a bit better :)

  12. Oh, God! How painful! I hate it when they call out because of that! I mean, I hate speaking up in class and when they notice you're the quiet one they just want you to do and answer everything and ugh :/ I just HATE IT :/ so I get you!

    Nicole, I am loving your outfit and even though I say this all the time it's actually very very true. You always look so... happy! Like your outfits just scream happiness all over the place :p

  13. EEK SO PRETTY! I love the cream one!! Now I wanna see the navy! That skirt's so awesome too. English/Poetry classes can be SO stressful! It's funny, because I really enjoy reading & writing poetry, but when I get a poetry assignment, it's so hard to come up with something! Try your hobo idea! I bet it will be good. ^_^ Are you gonna ever post some of your poetry on here?!! I really wanna see some!

  14. You always find the most adorable little combinations and put together colors I wish I had more of in my closet! :) I love your shoes and skirt.

    && yessss school is kicking my butt! I have a 90 in one class so I have to make sure I'm paying superattention to it so that it doesn't fall, ahh!

    Awe! I'm sorry about the poetry thing, but hey a poem about a hobo sounds super awes, throw it at me. ;D! I'd love to read any poetry that you've written!

    I will now stalk your previous posts since I miss looking at your blog. :D

  15. Such a cute outfit! I so wish we lived closer and I could raid your closet! you have such awesome clothes!


  16. that skirt is adorable! you look so cute.
    <3 mode.

  17. i love your skirt!
    and i would hate to have a teacher like yours! actually, i did, at school..my english teacher would always just pick on people to read stuff out that they had written and it always paralysed me with fear. but i think you should be brave and tell everyone to STFU if they don't like your work :P

  18. another pretty pretty look Nicole! I seriously need to get a cardigan like that asap.

  19. pretty! i'm so clumsy too. embrace it! ;)

  20. i've been looking for a cardigan just like this while at the thrift store, but they're always huge. yours fits you perfectly!

  21. wonderful. this mixed matchup just goes. the flats are so terrific. i want a creamy and cozy cardigan just like that. pretty skirt!
