May 9, 2012


In a massive effort to procrastinate last minute exam cramming, here is the outfit I wore yesterday! Basically all I had to do was study & go to a few appointments, so I opted for something fairly casual & added some heels. It was a peculiar day, with cloud vs sun in constant battle, & eerily quiet where we shot these photos. 'Hectic' is an understatement for this week (final exam, packing endless suitcases, appointments galore) so to enjoy the sun in near silence was a nice break. 

[ I have an absolute abhorrence for wrinkly clothes, so I feel the need to explain away these wrinkly trousers. I always press them before wearing them, but they're a tad too big so the excess material keeps bunching & wrinkling every time I sit. It drives me crazy, but I love them so I wear them regardless. ] Excuses aside, I paired them with this ruffle-laden purple transparent top (an oldie from ASOS), a simple pair of pointy-toed black heels, my Vanilla Michael Kors Hamilton bag, & some gold accessories. Nails painted in Lily by Revlon.

3 more days here in NL & so much to get done before I leave. With any luck I'll be able to get in one more outfit shoot with my dearest obliging Mom beforehand. Until then, hope everyone is having a fabulous week! :)

I was wearing:
Purple ruffle top -  ASOS (old)
Trousers - Zara (old)
Necklace - F21 (old)
Heels - Spring (old)
Watch & Bag - Michael Kors
Nail polish - Lily 610 Revlon

  27. Too funny on the wrinkles! I HATE that too and it seems every time I drive to work, I get out of my car and it looks as if I pulled my pants out of the dirty clothes hamper! Regardless, I didn't even notice yours were wrinkled! LOVE that top and sheerness paired with a statement necklace. You rocked it for your appointments! Much more so than I would have.

    Talk soon!

  28. I swear you have the most sweetest disposition ever. It shows in every photo of you. I like that :)
    "Hectic" does no justice to my week either! But I'm so glad it's almost over. I just had my final exams yesterday and tomorrow I pick up my graded portfolio from one of my writing classes. I'm so ready to sleep in every day and get back into running.
    I love the outfit, by the way (of course)! You mix color pallets like it's your job. And you do it extremely well! That ring is super awesome! I want one with my initial.
    P.s. the viking tree thing is super cool!
