SLIDER

collegiate league

 cap: H&M men's (last worn here), sweatshirt: russel athletics (buy it here), skort: zara (last worn here, buy it here, cheaper choies version here, even cheaper sheinside version here), sneakers: superga (buy it here), lipstick: nars satin lip pencil in majella (buy it here)

Posting this after binge watching all of season 4 of arrested development yesterday... there were some laughs, but sadly it was not on par to the first three seasons. Of course, it was still arrested development so it was still ace in comparison to much of what's on television these days. I think the main thing that irked me is how they kept showing the same thing but from different character's point of view... I don't know, the flow just wasn't the same. Also, what was with all the celeb inserts??

Okay, back to relevant blog stuff. Closing out my sophomore year of college, and my closet lacked a classic collegiate sweatshirt. While I do have apparel to rep my school, can't say much of it gets worn besides for pajamas or the once in a blue moon workout. But as the bookstore was having a sale this past week, I decided it was the perfect time to fill this gap.  Oversized (albeit, a bit too boxy for my tastes but I'll deal) and soft, I see why many students live their 4 years in such pieces.

Then paired with the beloved (or overrated, depends who you ask) zara skort to make me feel slightly less like a bum. If you're looking for a more affordable version, choies has made a dead on look a likeas did sheinside. Decided to try out this new lip pencil + lipstick in one that I bought, and can I just say, new favorite makeup product-- well tied with the liquid liner I mentioned recently. It's very moisturizing when you put it on, a plus for my very dry lips, but to the point where I was wary of moving my lips around in fear that I would look like I came from a blood thirsty rampage. But after it set, the color really holds. I ate a donut and drank some chocolate milk (breakfast of champions) only to be pleasantly surprised that it had stayed put!

  5. Love the varsity look and the lip color!
    RYC: I've never used pore-fessional before is it sort of like a primer?

    1. It's not really a primer in the sense that its purpose isn't to help keep your foundation or whatever on. But is supposed to dramatically reduce the size of pores. I personally haven't tried it, but I have tried the clique equivalent and definitely notice the difference by using it

  18. I'm the one who love this skort!:) It looks great on you, btw:) I only really cannot believe how these shops copy stuff, while SheInside goes as far as blatantly use Zara photos. Ah well, Zara also copies designs, who doesn't these days! But still, it kinda looks weird to me.

    I really like this idea of a college sweatshirt, as we had none! I only discovered how amazing sweatshirts are about a year ago! I like yours very much.

    1. I know, it's kinda taking it too far by using their photos. As far as copying designs, zara is guilty of that so I can't blame those wholesale sites of the same thing really. Originality is lost in today's world!

  24. i spent all of the lindsay episodes in deep discussion over how portia de rossi is a completely different looking person and even actress. i couldn't pay attention to her episodes. lucille and tobias still have it going on for sure though.

    i wanted to make some sort of quote with my comment from the george micheal college seasons, btu i couldn't. i'm not that good

  25. I know!! She looks like a different person, I remember being a little freaked out when I saw the trailer. Lucille and Tobias were definitely the most consistent characters and I don't think I got a solid laugh until I got to their episodes. I hate the new George Michael and have a strong distate for new Michael, which is a pity since he was the most likable character. Not in the sense that he was the funniest or most amusing or anything, but rather the one with the most redeeming qualities.
