There are days when you ignore the number of new dresses you have prettily hanging on your wall and you rummage through your closet for something that aptly fits your mood. This is one of those days. I left a pile of discarded clothing (this after painstakingly cleaning and arranging my closet the other day) on top of my bed after waging an internal war with myself on the subject of ootd.
I just had to wear another preppy outfit. I just HAD to! There's just something about me and pretending to be a school girl (which I always get away with. Don't ask. Small girl problems) that lifts up my mood and makes me feel like a styling pro.
And please excuse the repetitive poses. I just don't know what to do with my hands so I ended up clutching my pearl-embellished glasses in nearly all of the photos we took. There's no helping it.
In retrospect, this seems to be a realization of an Alice + Olivia SS14 look I once saw on instagram. But only in black and white. You can't go wrong with black and white.
So anyway, just a quick post. Hope you are having a great week so far. If not, go read Leila Chatti from Confection's post about beauty. It's too inspiring and eloquent a post to go unnoticed.
