a skeptical 21.






black shirt: banana republic
sweater: banana republic
denim skirt: old navy
scarf: gift from Mr. S.
belt: nooo idea
tights: also stumped.
boots: dsw

guys, i'm not sure about this outfit. 
it all started out with me wanting to wear these tights this morning.
i kinda constructed the outfit around them... 
i don't have much in my 30 for 30 that matches purple, 
so i went with the black shirt.
i didn't want to look all emo, so i went with the denim skirt instead of black.
then i added the scarf because it played up the purple in my tights.
then i threw on a sweater.

also 
(guess i was in an experiment-y mood today!)
i did my hair quite differently than usual.
not sure how i felt about the braid headband.
why do some hairstyles look SO cute on other people,
and then once you try them, 
you feel like 5 year old Gretel from the Sound of Music,
and your boyfriend won't stop calling you Princess Leia?

oh well.

today i found the coziest little one room bookstore right by campus.
coolest place, i could have stayed there the whole afternoon.
i picked up some Freire and sat in a cafĂ© 
and tried to start one of my midterm papers on utilitarianism all afternoon.

how was your monday?

I really like the outfit! And whoa don't even get me started on that braid. How did you do it?! It looks so nice!

Princess Leia comparisons beat the heck out wookiee references!

So what happened to the Boots: Rome ?

Agreed, definitely prefer Leia.
And believe me, on day 31, I will be wearing ANY other shoes besides the four pairs i've been wearing for the past 22 days. Rome boots included.

food for thought.
