In The Sun

Hello there! So, yesterday was my first day back at school (even though I didn't actually have a class, just a meeting...is that cheating? oh well) and it was alright. It's always hard to get back into a routine after you've been away from school for a while I guess. I actually found out some more information about the poetry festival I'm participating in, who I'll be reading with, and when. I also found out I'll be reading for longer than I thought! I'm so nervous about the whole thing, but I trust that it'll be a great, important experience for me. It's just so strange to think that I'll be reading my own poetry, with professional poets, to a real audience. EEP, so weird!

Anyway, I didn't really love how these outfit photos came out. I feel like I look all sorts of disproportionate and Americana, but I liked how I looked in non-photo reality, so I decided to post them anyway. I feel like more than anything, I started this blog to push myself and my style, and there are some outfits I'm going to like more than others. I figure it's all just a part of the process of figuring out my personal style!

Top/Romper: Zara
Vest: Goodwill
Skirt, Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Tights: Hue
Belt: Delia's

Until Tomorrow,


  1. I love the colors on this outfit! I'm generally afraid to wear denim anything other than jeans, but you really styled this vest well! Have fun back at school!

  2. This is such a cute outfit! I would be at a loss of how to style a denim vest, unless I had seen this photo. Now I want one, ha.

    I'm sure the poetry festival will go really well, that sounds like a really exciting opportunity.

  3. I love this outfit, and I actually like the kinda americana feel it has to it. In fact, I am posting this on my tumblr so I don't forget about it. I have the items to recreate this at home so I wanna try. ^_^ That is so cool that you're reading your poetry at an event. Don't worry about it, you'll do fine! I hope you share your poetry with us one of these days!!!

  4. Is that a She & Him reference in the title? LOVE it!

  5. haha I feel like any time I take a picture, I look back at it and overanalyze it. But I know that no one else would actually do the same thing. (Hopefully lol) I think it looks perfect. I love the floral top with the red skirt. And you pull of denim vests so well!


  6. Lovely outfit, i must get out my denim waistcoat for the summer, they're the best!

  7. This is one of my favorite skirts you own. :D

  8. I like the outfit, and the last photo is my favorite. The other day I took photos, and had creepy shadows all over my face. I just decided you win some, you lose some.
