Take Me Out to the Batting Cages


So a few weeks ago, Sybil from Animated Confessions decided to start up a clothing/accessories swap for any one that was interested! One of the items that she offered up was this fantastic red, vintage scarf and I called dibs on it as fast as I could. I had fun styling it but then soon I discovered that the heat was ridiculous and scarves were meant for colder weather. Same goes for my trench coat. Is it horrible to say that I miss layers and coats? I'll regret saying that once it's 20 degrees out and the heat stops working.


(trench coat DKNY, top, skirt [remixed] urban outfitters, belt h&m, wedges seychelles, scarf vintage - swapped with sybil)


This is how Sybil wore her scarf in an old Chictopia post! I love her use of red, I can never seem to get myself to wear red so the scarf will have to do. In fact, I don't think I wear that many bold or bright colors, especially on my blog. I used to back in the day but I guess I've drifted towards more muted colors. I should challenge myself to have a week full of bright colored outfits. :)

On the topic of my blog, someone suggested on my formspring that I should have a blogger feature, and I think it's a great idea! I'll probably get around to it in the next week or so. Is there anything else you guys would like to see? Life has been so hectic recently, but not in a bad way. I'm keeping busy, getting work done, earning some money, and catching up with friends. Oh, and most importantly, getting tons of sleep, of course.


I can't believe July is only a few days away. June seemed to fly by ridiculously fast and I can just imagine the rest of the summer passing in the blink of an eye as well. Before I know it I'll be sitting in class again. Oh, the joy of learning! :P Oh! And in the picture above, you can slightly see the faded scar on the back of my right leg. I woke up one morning and discovered it staring at me. I have no idea how I got it but it proves I'm a horribly violent sleeper.

    Second, how did you notice the scar if it's on the back of your leg?

  12. A lovely way of styling the scarf although I do get the autumn vibe from it. Dressing in the heat is so much more difficult. I'm seriously in love with your wedges too, they're amazing!

  19. This outfit has a very classic look to it, but it's still playful. It's kind of a more sophisticated version of a catholic school uniform. I love the pop of colour from the scarf.

  21. Your outfit is so cute!
    I have a question all your pictures have a very good quality and the size is big! Now I take my pictures with a Canon EOS 1000D and the quality is also very good but when I upload my pictures the size is small and the quality isn't good. So I really want to know how you do that?

    I am sorry for the long message but I really need your help!

  22. I love how the scarf just stands out from the rest of the outfit :) That being said, every piece in this look is great and they're meant to be with each other :) I want those brown wedges. So classic and versatile :)

    Now go get tons of sleep! ;)

  23. The scarf is divine on you. I love the neutral outfit with the pop by your face. Although I'm with you... I cannot believe you're wearing a jacket and scarf right now!I've been missing layers too. They make adding dimension to an outfit so much easier.
