Daily: Birthday Outfit

This has been one crazy week, my friends. On top of celebrating my birthday, packing, moving back to school, and unpacking, I’m currently holding two leadership positions on campus, which means I’ve been doing double duty preparing for both jobs these past two days. Today I’m helping move new freshmen into the dorms, and I’ll give you a hint: I’m not currently wearing this outfit. I actually wore it to my birthday party on Sunday evening. Here’s the breakdown:

Blouse: H&M
Shorts: Garage sale 
Sandals: Dolce Vita for Target
Bag: Garage sale (Coach)
Necklace: American Eagle
Sunnies: Forever 21

My friends and I stopped by H&M last week, and I just happened to stumble upon this leopard blouse for $7. For that price, I couldn’t pass it up. Its asymmetrical hemline adds more interest to an already loud blouse. To keep the blouse from feeling a little too girly, I added a pair of light-wash denim shorts and some edgy sandals. Plus, I couldn’t help but carry my new vintage Coach bag (any excuse will do). 

I am also happy to announce that this is probably the last time you’ll be seeing this quality of photos on my blog because … I got a new camera! It’s going to be a good weekend.
