This is one of my "cached" outfits, drawn often in the margins of my class notes but never actually worn. It was because I didn't have the right tights! I played with the idea of wearing my grey vertical-striped tights with it, but it seemed like too much of an extra colour. Then I got these tights from H&M! Yesss.
I love that the stripes are similar in width to the bands of the plaid, and also the same width as the tuxedo-shirt-ish ribbons on the t-shirt!
I've been noticing a severe lack of this red blazer in my outfits, but it's hard to wear under coats. It was finally warm enough (for a day) to wear just a blazer and cardigan as outerwear! I've also figured out that if you leave the house at the last possible second so you have to run-walk to class or work, then you don't get cold from the exertion ;) Awesome!
Run-walk: jerky quick-walking with lots of arm movement and awkwardness, accompanied by huffing and puffing and amusement of leisurely strolling onlookers. Even more effective in heels.
Of course I wore my delicious oxford heels, because I felt very schoolgirl-ish and I don't have flat black oxfords ;) I actually just remembered grey ones that I have! Hmm, good thing the snow is gone so I can wear lots of different shoes that haven't seen daylight in months :D
I had to bobby-pin my hair behind my ears, because it was doing MAJORLY uncooperative things. Usually I just go with bedhead or wear a hat. Well, in this case the hat didn't help. It was doing this gross pear-shaped thing, bleeeeh! It's at the length now where I have to decide whether to cut it again or let it grow. Decisions, decisions!
After I put on these tights, I noticed that I'd twisted one leg around... but then I thought, it looks like a candy cane! Yum!
Oh yeah. Close-up of t-shirt! So pretty, right? Ignore the wrinkliness, t-shirt ironing is a bit much for me! (I never iron anything, shhh)
I guess I should go take a crack at one of the six essays that I have to write over the next two weeks. Blahhhh I just want to sketch outfits!! Hahaha.
New reward system for finishing essays: working on the assignments in the back of my favourite of the books I bought! Fashion Design Course by Steven Faerm, most awesome and fascinating book ever. Drool.
