first day






because i'm terrible at doing things on time, here is my outfit from my first day of classes this semester. i joked with my boyfriend about wearing all black, because it was was a reflection of my 'soul', and that wearing a smiths shirt will get me all the friends. truth is, i don't have many friends, or am i very good at  making them. but i think i'm a pretty good friend, once you got me. 
i've had this shirt since i was a very rebellious 16 year old (lip ring! pink hair!). and i gained a lot of weight post high school, and it didn't fit me. and it was always my goal to have it fit again. and last time i went to my parents, i grabbed a box of old clothes (band shirts), and then tried it on a couple days before these photos. now i have to resist wearing it all the time. favorite shirt then, one of my favorites now. 









i treated myself to this steal of a giant tote bag from everlane right before school started, and now i'm obsessed with it. it is so filthy now, and i've used it nearly every day since this photo was taken. it went from being stiff to soft and malleable. it is pretty much perfect, and comes in other colors, and is only $35 dollars. 
i also got sent these glasses free from firmoo as a part of a promotion they are doing where you can get free glasses! yes, free glasses, from them. i picked out their tortoise shell ones, and for the price (or free) they are amazing! they feel sturdy, came in a hard case, a cleaning cloth, and a soft drawstring bag. so much better than another pair of glasses i am going to review later. right before i got these glasses, i broke my bonlook honeybadger frames. i've since glued them, but i'm always on the lookout for cute vintage-esque frames that don't break the bank. 














details:
shirt: hot topic circa 2004
skirt: target
belt: forever 21
shoes: payless
tote: everlane
glasses: firmoo

  5. i love fitting into old clothing like that. that smiths tee is perfect and it's great to give it new life - it's totally adorable on you. and i never make friends either. i have very few friends coming out of college - i think sometimes people just don't want to make friends, you know? they have their friends and they dont need you. anyhow - love that you're back
