We Can't Afford to Be Neutral


I'm currently cramming for my Marketing Research Midterm because, like always, I choose to be a slacker. I was going to take the whole entire day today from 12pm-12am and reserve it for studying. Instead, so far I studied for a total of 2 hours, slept for 5 hours, ate for 2 hours, and went out with friends for 3 more hours. So now I'm going to study from midnight until 3 am, sleep for a bit, then study some more in the morning. I'm not very good with time management at all. I mean well, but I never follow through.

At one point during one of my multiple naps this afternoon, I had a dream where I was waiting for an elevator that you had to swipe a card to open. I couldn't find my card so I just stood around waiting for someone to come along. And you know how in dreams, sleeping for 10 minutes can equal 2 hours in a dream? I waited for this elevator for approximately 5 hours in dream time so I pretty much wanted to kill myself. Even better, was when someone finally did come along, I had no idea what floor or room I had to go to. Thank god my friend called me at that point and he woke me up from my misery.

This is actually one of my favorite outfits that I've worn recently. I love neutrals with all my heart (you guys have probably noticed that I don't wear that many bright colors) so I felt pretty comfortable in my whites, beiges, and browns. And it's the return of my tights! :) This was actually another Snapshot Fashion Assignment; this week the theme was scarves! Go check out how the rest of the girls worked their scarves.

  2. i hate elevators in real life..god forbid if i dreamt about being stuck in one. i hear ya on neutrals...as much as i like colour on others or in general fashion, i find it hard to wear.

    great easy, breezy outfit.

  3. I have to take an elevator 5 days a week. I HATE IT. They're terrifying. I'm always texting somebody when I'm on it 'cause I'm afraid of being trapped in it or something lame along those lines. Anyway, THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. AMAZING. I don't even know how to describe it, so ethereal and ... magical... and... <3<3<3<3!!!

  12. This look is adorable! I am so envious of your tights! They're too adorable. I realize that I feel really comfortable in darks and neutrals as well! When I do wear color--I really am colorful. Neutrals just always has that down to earth look. And you make it look great!

  19. Too cute! I love the neutral color palette and the scarf and tights are too great. <3
    I have extreme time management issues as well. It's a pain. While I was supposed to be studying the library the other day I accidentally fell asleep only to have an awkward dream including an extremely odd man who had a little white fuzzy monkey dog named Flufflelu. Yeah, I have no idea.

  20. These photos are so pretty!
    I love the striped scarf and I am insanely jealous of how soft that sweater looks.

    That dream sounds horrible! Once I dreamt that I went through a completely normal and extremely boring day at school, then I woke up and realized it was a dream and I had to do it all over again for real! Yuck!

  21. Really like the color of your pumps, too bad suede is so, so hard to keep clean.

  24. Gah ok so i have recenty discovered a newfound love of neutrals, too. Especially grey. There will be tons of grey on my site this season and I'm not sorry about it :) I think my favorite part of your look is the tights. I'm going to get a pair just like that.

  27. I hate dreams that are frustrating!
    You are sleeping, why can't you just get to relax?

    Love your patterned tights and mix of neutrals - you may not have bold colors but you still have a bold look!

  28. Study hard girl! ;D And the outfit is really pretty - neutrals can easily look "blah", but you made them work :)

  29. Totally relate to this post. I suffer from poor time management, too... but I am truly a skilled procrastinator. :D When I was doing my undergrad, I'd rather go to a late movie with a friend, then stay up till 5 writing a paper that was due at 8, then catching up on sleep after class... man, those were the days! Now I've been out of school for a while, but want to back for some idiotic reason. So I'm currently attempting to study for the LSAT, but my good intentions are often derailed by the mall/junk food/bad TV/Netflix/my cat. ^_^

    Oh, but I love your mix of neutrals. You pull off the tights and shorts look so well!
