When You Touch My Face, The Oceans Part


Today is one of those days. You know, the ones where the universe reminds you in a rather non-sensitive way that you're a dumb, inadequate student, and gives you blisters on the back of your feet that force you to walk to the car barefoot, and makes the weather change drastically so that a denim jacket is not only no longer appropriate but sweat inducing, but then you keep trying to be positive and are all "I happen to like this denim jacket! And these shoes are worth the blisters! And I'm not dumb, I'm AWESOME." You know. So before I go all whiney on you all, though I've been doing plenty of that on twitter today, I'm going to go and try to be a good student and get a decent amount of work done tonight so I can feel less inadequate. Watch out Iliad, HERE I COME. It's going to be a long week, isn't it?

So, I almost didn't take pictures of this outfit because of the whole shoe thing, but I figured if I suffered through wearing them all day for the sake of a cute outfit, there better be pictures to document my doing so. I didn't have any clue what to wear this morning, meaning it was the perfect opportunity to attempt pattern mixing in a haphazard way. I quite liked the end result though.

Blouse: Nordstrom Rack, Skirt: Forever 21, Shoes: Urban Outfitters, Jean Jacket: Salvation Army, Craziness: Hereditary

  1. Don't let the bastards grind you down, as my dad likes to say. Whether the bastards be professors or shoes...

  2. i love the print on your skirt.. and adorable shoes!

    xo, Jill

  3. Ick i had a sucky Monday too. My car broke, and I have no money right now to fix it, and then I remembered that on top of that next month I have to register & get it inspected and that costs hundreds and WHINE WHINE COMPLAIN COMPLAIN. I'll stop now. But anyway, I feel your pain. And I agree with Emily. Cheer up Charlie! :) This outfit is SO adorable if that makes you feel any better. I adore that skirt!

  4. Aw, I know how you feel. I am having one of those weeks...where every little thing seems to be awful. anyhow, I love your outfit. The skirt is so darling!

  5. agghh i'm sorry today was so crappy. :[ i have days like this too. bleh i guess it's just good to remember emerson's quote... “Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in, forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, you shall begin it well and serenely...”

    i really love your pattern mixing here! that skirt is killer. hope the rest of your week turns out better!!xx

  6. You know, I was totally about to buy those shoes, but now I'm glad I didn't? I mean they are so flippin cute, but blisters are no fun either.

    Anyways, you'll have a better day tomorrow!!

    And fabulous outfit. I love what you did with the pattern mixing.

  7. you mix patterns the best!
    and blisters on your feet days are the worst.
    i haven't even changed out of my clothes since friday night.

  8. Aww sorry about those shoes! I was eyeing those but thanks for the heads up! The weather sucks when it's bipolar :( You are adorable! Love all the florals mixed. The Fall colors go super well with the denim jacket!

  9. Oh the daisies on that skirt! Love it:) It looks really great!

  10. Great skirt ! So 60's :)

  11. Love this outfit! I just got a denim jacket and I'm so excited to wear it, but of course it is still to warm for a jacket. Ugh go away summer I am sick of you!

    Sorry to hear you were feeling crummy...hope you are feeling better now! At least you are able to stay positive - that is a lot more than I can do sometimes. Kudos!

  12. I really love your blog,
    maybe you could follow my blog,
    I follow your blog now ;)

  13. Sigh...the things we do to look was very foolish of me to wear my brand new oxfords while scourging through SoHo and East Village. I wanted rip my shoes apart and throw them in the fire. Then I discovered something called heel cushions that literally saved my life (and my sanity.) I love the floral on floral combo, btw.

  14. I like you pattern mixing! It makes me want fall asap!

  15. Oh, those days. Yeah, I experimented them too. But eventually (luckily) they pass. You look great btw, I love the floral combo :) and those shoes are worth a couple of blisters, they are so cute :)

  16. i had that day today...

    i'm sorry about the shoes, but i love the way you combined the two floral prints.
