dress: forever 21, neckerchief: urban outfitters, sandals: steve madden

I would apologize for being a terrible blogger... but I feel as if that would imply that I plan on doing something to remedy the situation. And in all honesty, I'm probably not for a while. It's the last two weeks of school, then I've got finals, then an exam that determines whether I get to continue onto grad school or not, and finally I'm off to India for about a month. But even so, I'm not going to be completely absent-- after all, blogging is an effective stress reliever. 

And it's thanks to blogging that I've been inspired to go neckerchiefin'. Yupp, I just created a new verb, guys. The only people I've really seen going neckerchiefin' are bloggers...and the boy scouts of America. Oh yeah, and those gondola guides, like this guy in the background of this Stromae video (side note, listen to tous les memes; it's my current jam.) I usually gravitate away from any sort of dainty neck accessory cause a) my hair is massive and will likely hide it, especially in photos, at least 50% of the time and b) I'm self conscious of my shoulders. Alas, this is another case of the bloggers-made-me-do-it. 


  1. wow sounds like a busy time for you. good luck with the finals, and that exam - and omg india for a month! take me with you!

    i'm totally cool with this look on other people but i don't think i will pull it off. i like it kind of muted with the black dress here. anyway i've always been a go big or go home when it comes to neck things, definitely more a big scarf person.

  4. oh hey, you! I'm one of those who wear those tiny scarves around their necks so I absolutely get what you mean ;) though I started doing it out of the blue, just because I felt like it.. anyway, I love this simple but classy look and how exciting is the fact you're going to India?! take heaps of photos, please ;)
