Wool shorts

I have a special place in my heart for those Tweets that begin, “That awkward moment when … .” Yes, I realize those Tweets aren’t grammatically correct; they’re not a full sentence. But they’re usually witty and funny, so I can overlook their grammatical errors. If I were tweeting an awkward tweet about today’s outfit, it would say, “That awkward moment when the weather got so warm I had to pull out the only shorts I have at school — they’re wool.” Here’s the breakdown:

Blazer: Forever 21
Blouse: Elle via Kohl’s
Shorts: The Limited
Brogues: Borrowed from my roommate
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Rings: Kenneth Jay Lane (via a giveaway)/H&M 

It probably wasn’t the smartest choice wearing wool shorts and a blazer on a day when the temps reached in the upper 70s, but a girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do when she doesn’t have part of her spring wardrobe at school. I can’t help but think that this will be the last time when I’ll be switching out seasonal wardrobes like this; soon I’ll be graduated and have everything in one place!

Subtle simplicity

Ruffle or peplum?
