Snapback

Hello my darlings!

I am so sorry for the brief hiatus! Last week was my spring break and I just went back to classes this week. Needless to say, things have been quite hectic. I took the meaning of the word break to a whole new level. I think I actually forgot I was in school. Not a book was cracked open during my spring break. So, when I started this week, I was overwhelmed with assignments, to say the least. I've been meaning to get some posts up, but it just seems like I never find the time to.


This outfit of the day is actually from a couple days ago. I braved the weather and sported my gray sweater/dress with my favorit-o leather boots. When I initially bought this sweater, I had hopes of wearing it as a dress, but I knew damn well I was too tall and it was simply too short. After seeing Brittany of Pockets and Bows sporting this sweater as a dress (and rocking the HELL out of it, might I add) I knew I had to have it. [Mind you, Brittany is about 5'1 and I am 5'8] Nevertheless, I was determined to have this sweater in my closet. When I got the sweater, my dreams of sporting it as a dress were crushed, as I found it almost bared my crotch with the slightest knee bend. So, I wore it with leggings and jeans. It wasn't until I found a pair of leather shorts, that I realized I could give the illusion of wearing the sweater as a dress (ultimately freaking folks out) while still being fully covered. When I think about it, I'm pretty sure Brittany also wore it with shorts.

I got this hat from Forever 21 in the men's section and once I got my hair straightened I couldn't wait to wear it. So much so, that I damn near wore it everyday. It's not often I'm not donning a huge fro of curls, so I took FULL advantage. I just thought this hat was perfectly edgy and could go with a variety of outfits.

I finished this look with my deep purple lipstick (by Milani) and I had the perfect bad girl look :) The blue hair helps, too. Hope you all enjoy! Toodles!






My darling had to be in the picture. Love that little guy :)
