14/15 | Back-to-School


I snuck into one of the classrooms of my old high school to take these shots. The lighting was pretty bad so the pictures didn't come out like I hoped they would. They'll have to suffice for now though. I felt like an intruder and I even took off my shoes so my wedges wouldn't make any noise as I walked. I must have looked absolutely ridiculous holding my shoes and my tripod.


(cardigan h&m [remixed], ruffled top love culture [remixed], jeans forever 21 [remixed], wedges seychelles, belt forever 21, necklace from jasmine)

A couple of weeks ago I sent Jasmine one of my two bow rings and in return she sent me a bow necklace! I love it and it's definitely a change from my normal necklaces in my collection. It adds a romantic touch to any outfit.

I have two more days of work before I move into my on-campus apartment! It's crazy that after a summer of working at Love Culture, the only thing I bought was this top! When I worked at dELiA*s I spent a ton of my paycheck at the store so it was like working for clothes! This time I saved up all my paychecks (and instead spent it on other things - especially gas money and food). At least I resisted the temptation! This top will be my only reminder of the store. I haven't stepped foot in dELiA*s since I left my job and I don't know if I'll be stepping into Love Culture after I leave either. I have this phobia of going back and having to say awkward hellos to the managers/employees that I worked with. :P

  1. Sneaking into your old high school was definitely worth it! Ah, the things we do for the blog, just for a nice backdrop/photo/etc. I think they turned out relatively well-- the first picture has an almost JC Penney vibe! :D

    Plus, I love those wedges.

  18. Such a lovely ensemble! You look very mature and well-put together in this outfit (note: I'm not saying you look old :p) I love the minty green blouse with the ruffled neckline. GREAT BUY! And I love how you belted the unbuttoned cardigan. It still looks relaxed but not sloppy :D

    14/15! I can't wait to see how you close this challenge :)
