I hoped that they would clear my mind

[ITCHY!] wool sweater: stolen from my dad
polka dot skirt: mom
tights: gift
bag: mom

i love this outfit, even if the sweater is itchy. i like balancing volumes in outfits--the proportion of the sweater is balanced with the simple silhouette of the skirt. i added some print to keep it playful. once i get a thin black belt (which i severely need) you guys will be seeing me belting a whole bunch of stuff. :D

thanks SO much for reading. i will try to get back to you all on the weekend. <3

spread the word!
i can't wait for the end of school to roll by...... there's a surprise involving a yearbook...

its been soo long, how have you been? :)

I love how the sweater is worn out and gives it this vintage look. I think this sweater looks better old rather than new. I also noticed how you incorporated a silhouette of some hanging thingy, looks pretty cool.

Oh really enjoying this look, the layering is lush and I think it looks great without a belt. Loving the navy against the bag, which is epic btw.

Lady Sophia's Lover said...

You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
Oh living Aten who creates life.
When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son.
You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
Men see you, but know not your ways.

Thanks...sweet sugar!
