Blaz(er)in'


There is something so completely perfect about an excellently tailored and cuffed blazer to top off an outfit. The double lapels give it a cool extra something.

I borrowed the blazer from my mom, and the tank as well - I absolutely love the colors and geometries of it.

Unfortunately, since she's planning on wearing the blazer for business purposes, I'm not allowed to wear it out of the house. Sniffle.
But that hasn't prevented me from becoming rather amorous toward it.

Target shorts, Forever 21 tank, Calvin Klein blazer, Kohl's gladiator sandals

Hell week has officially begun, and by that I am referring to sophomore final exams.
Luckily, I had no exams today so I had breakfast with some friends this morning and studied for my chemistry test, which I have tomorrow along with math.
Then comes English and French on Wednesday and gym on Thursday, and then... I am finished! Free! Most glorious summer vacation, here I come!

A few awesome ladies and I are ravaging the thrift store after school on Wednesday, so I'll hopefully have some sweet things to show you soon.

I love your blazer! No way you're a sophomore, I thought you were maybe 18 or 19 at first. I'm a sophomore too but people usually guess I'm 1 or 2 years younger -_-

dear Gosh do I love your blog! Your photos have so much style yet a great sense of humor in them! Blazer is up lady! You look great in it and congratulations on almost being done with school! Freedom is on the way!

Thank you so, so much for your kind words and well wishes. I truly, dearly appreciate it! Also, thank you for the compliment on my header! It's actually the ceiling in a Chicago Macy's and then I just messed around with the contrast.lol.
Speaking of headers, yours is delightful! Where did you get it?!

aww, thank you!! as far as the piercing goes, it didn't realllly hurt to actually get it done, but it is still a little sore (from about a week and a half ago). it doesn't really bother me though, and i know it will go away eventually. you should do it!! (:

oh, p.s. i love your blog!! so fun, so cute. and that blazer is awesome! my mom is 5'1 (haha), but somehow i still find things of hers i like but can't wear... work shmurk.
