Grandpa Jen


I bought this trench a month or two ago with my mom and I fell head over heels in love with it. At first I didn't think I'd be able to fit it in with my normal style, but the more I wear it the more I can't take it off. It was warm out this morning and I still wore it! (By the way, the weather is gorgeous outside. Tomorrow it's going to be 88 degrees! Hopefully I'll be able to sneak in a trip to the beach before I officially start studying for my upcoming finals.) 


Yes. That's right. I'm wearing suspenders. 


(trench DKNY, white l/s forever 21, suspenders my brother, jeans forever 21, flats uo, necklace simply vera vera wang)


I stole these suspenders from my brother when I was home a week ago. He never wears them so why not put them to use? They hold up my pants quite nicely. 

It's Rutgersfest today! It's pretty much a day where there are games, free food, and great music (Brand New is one of the bands playing - but then again I never really listened to them).  Actually...Rutgersfest is pretty much just a day where everyone gets trashed during the day into the night. I'm still sober now, don't worry, but it'll change in a bit. It's my friend's 21st today so we're going to celebrate! :)


p.s. I'm glad I'm updating a lot more compared to the beginning of this month. Hopefully I'll keep this up since the summertime is approaching. :)

  3. The post title seriously made me laugh! You make for one hot grandpa! :]
    Heck yes for suspenders and I adore the trench. <3 I remember I was blown away at how well suspenders held up my pants the first time I wore them. I wanted to make them my permanent substitute for a belt ever since then. haha
    Rutgersfest sounds like its going to be a ton of fun. :]

  51. Pretty pretty pretty !! I have been trying to convince my better half for suspenders, but he is pretty stubborn when it comes to what I wear, you know suspender wise. Oh well, I will find a way....
    The Trench is super awesome. It was so hot on Saturday I thought my skin would melt. No layers from now onwards. Its sad really. Can't hide my pudginess anymore. :(
