Set fire to the field

Why, yes, the backgrounds of these photos look particularly overexposed today. It’s not fog. It’s not smog. It’s smoke. Every year, the field across campus is set on fire to restore minerals and nutrition back into the soil. It creates a pretty big fire with lots of smoke. Meanwhile everyone is taking pictures of the fire, yet my thoughts immediately go to outfit photos. The ideal photo op! Fire! Smoke! Here’s the breakdown:

Sweater: LOFT 
Shorts: H&M
Sandals: Forever 21
Necklace: H&M
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Sunnies: Forever 21
Ring: Charming Charlie 

Despite my best efforts, some nights are later than others, which results in my outfits not being set out the night before … which results in me hurriedly spending 20 minutes throwing clothes across my dorm room in an attempt to find something decent to wear. This was one of those mornings. So, ladies and gentlemen, I give you: a colorful mess of an ensemble. Sometimes messy is good, though.

Here’s a picture of the field after the fire had died down quite a bit (but still cool to see the charred field in the background):
