top: forever 21, skirt + sunglasses: h&m, necklace: j. crew, bag: cambridge satchel

Today was the hottest day in 2013 to date. I'm mortified by the number of butt cheeks I saw on my walk to class. Ain't nobody want to see that. How that's comfortable... a question I have no answer to. Just a personal preference, but I like not flashing my behind to the world. Hence why I am wearing a skirt and not non-existant shorts. I'd realllly like a fuller midi style skirt, but sadly an affordable version hasn't crossed my path yet. Every time Atlantic- Pacific sports one, my yearning grows.

Bought this white stripey shirt from forever 21 the other weekend after I realized tops are an extremely underdeveloped sector of my wardrobe. I try to stay away from forever 21 most of the time (people of buzzfeed feel the pain). Mostly cause if I fall in love with an item and wear it a lot, chances are it will shrink or tear or somehow become damaged within a few months time-- leaving me with a gaping hole in my heart closet. But then again, they say it's better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all. And I'm just shallow enough to apply it to clothes.

Midterm number two down, midterm number 3 and paper number 1 to come next week. Fun times ahead.


  1. that is a great top! Butt cheeks? No, just no! LOL.

  2. this is what I call a perfect look! I love it ;)


  3. I got distracted by the GIFs and forgot I was going to comment there. GIFs distract me. That was so funny. I don't shop at Forever 21 in person unless it's like 2pm on a Wednesdya in Janaury. I hate shopping in person though. I tend to just pulla dress over my head in the middle of the store often. I have no shame.

    ANYHOW I do love that top though. I actually just really love everythign about this outfit. Gimme it all

  4. Turtles!! Also, that Buzzfeed article knows my feels too...especially the clothes being made for tiny, hipless ppl-- so the dresses and skirts are too short or too oddly fitting.
    That said, the tops are not bad, and I love yours! You look great.
    Good luck with your finals...mine haven't started yet but I can feel the doom approaching.

  16. amazing pictures as usual! love that necklace and that satchel is soo classic and elegant - lasts forever!:)
    lots and lots of love from switzerland!

  17. Omg the Forever 21 link!! ROFL)) (I read it's cached version, somehow it's gone by now) We don't have Forever 21 here and I only bought a pair of shoes from their online store once, but I totally know what you mean - I've been to Zara in big cities during weekend, and it's HELL! Adding to all the misery, people also throw the clothes all over the place and even step on them.
    I love your top though, it's very very pretty!
    And aggrh about the tiny short, we don't see them much in Holland (due to shitty weather) but back in Israel it was a real pain! Sometimes I just wished there was something like what you see on tv, when they blur someone's face, placed on all those butt cheeks.

  18. Oh wow what a gorgeous outfit!

  19. In love with your bag. I love your boots too, but you didn't mention where they're from!
    p.s. That buzzfeed link MADE. MY. DAY.
    Tweeting it immediately.

  20. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW turtles! I wanted to thank you in general for your usual feedback on my posts, it means a lot to know I do have some readers :') ♥♥♥

  21. Gorgeous photos! I'm obsessed with your necklace, it's amazing.

    Also I know what you mean about butt cheeks! I remember being a festival last year and was horrified at walking behind some girls who wore the shortest shorts ever and looked like their butts were swallowing up their shorts. So bad and not attractive!

  22. That satchel is gorgeous, I've been teetering on the edge of buying one for about two years now! Good luck with your finals :)

  23. Good luck with the remaining midterms and I totally feel you on F21!


  24. gorgeous outfit, beautiful photos. it's such a classy ensemble and I looove that top and your awesome bag and OF COURSE that statement necklace which looks totally perfect with your white top. oh and you're right, hot weather always brings out some very bad fashion that hurts my eyes too :P

  25. Oh, I love everything that Blair wears.
    On the other hand, I also love this mini on you. You're still young, have fun. Once you get to my age, you'll have enough midi skirts to last you a lifetime. I don't dare to sport a mini one anymore. My knees are far too wobbly. Eek. :/

  26. Such a cool outfit. I think I'm in love with your blouse!

  27. i'm definitely not a fan of the whole butt cheeks poking out of the bottom of your clothes look either. it makes me uncomfortable to see and i wouldn't be caught dead wearing things like that! also beautiful photos, especially the turtles, they are so cute!
