|Awkward-mid-laugh-face because my sister/photographer is making me laugh as I'm trying to be serious for photos.|
There is actually so many things that I love about this outfit, I'm not sure how long this post is going to be....warning
As I'm sure you figured out between the news and insta these photos are old because there is at least a foot of snow outside and more to come. So obviously these were taken a while back when it was warmer and I didn't have to wear socks. Okay, now that you have a weather update let's dive into this outfit because I have a lot to say.
Where to begin....shoes! These fabulous, pink/tan loafers I got back in October and I only got a few uses out of them because again the need-to-wear-socks situation. But they are one of the nicest pair of shoes that I own. They can definitely be dressed up or down and did I mention how comfortable they are. So basically when I may or may not be running late for class and need to jump off the bus and sprint to class....you know which shoes I will be wearing.
Now let's move on to the colors in this outfit: pink mania and mixing black AND brown. Okay, so my love for pink has definitely grown ever since I started the blog; as most people think, I thought pink was way to girly but when mixed and matched it is a color totally worth owning and wearing. I thought mixing a bunch of pinks would be fun and different; so kind of not really making it monotone but not. Now I know there is a taboo with wearing brown and black, unless you make it work! (hashtag quoting Tim Gun).
Next we have mixing styles: I am basically wearing preppy-meets-leather-edge-with-a-hint-of bohemian (insert big breath). You see the hard leather shirt prevents the outfit from being to preppy/girly and the touch of pattern gives the outfit an unexpected element. (Plus the bag fit all my books....lol).
I think you can tell that feet of snow makes me a little let's say energetic but others may pin it as crazy. To each their own right!
