Summer layers

5/22/11





Forever 21 sweater, American Apparel corduroy shorts, Nine West sandals, gifted 80s Purple sunnies, vintage bag

After a week of indecisive weather, we are finally greeted with gorgeous, perfect weather for the weekend! I shed some layers and welcomed the sun in these shorts that I will most likely be living in for the rest of the warm months. Too comfortable, very light, and pretty much the perfect color.




Experiencing a high of senioritis at the moment. With senioritis I've got major wanderlust--I'm constantly thinking of where I can go for the summer with my budget. Listening to this song makes me want to drive off into the California sun and chase the sea breeze, along the coast (but seeing as gas is $4+ a gallon, I don't see that realistically happening any time soon... eff):

What a wonderful outfit. I'm love the blend of colors and textures and I'm really impressed by how high quality that Forever 21 sweater looks. It looks a bit too luxe to be from there. Lolz.

Perfect outfit! those shorts are amazing...

Michelleesque said...

Tell me about it. Gas is so expensive that I think I might find myself just staying home all Summer (minus summer school). Even my plane ticket to visit my relatives in Georgia was expensive as heck.

I'm going to UCI's graduation so hopefully I'll be able to spot you from where I am sitting! I need to get a picture with you before you leave! :(

Rachel Park said...

I swear you find the best things at Forever 21 while I am left with the bad quality generic clothes...love the outfit/song!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous outfit but I'm not surprised! You could wear a binbag and make it look haute! Love the header too!

Hang in there! I bet your so close to finishing! Reward yourself for each small achievement (a cookie or jewelry), and maybe you'll get more accomplished. Or go nap. haha I did both when I was in school.

ps. I cried when they played 23 too! It was so. unbelievably. perfect. They are even better live.

Alexandria said...

Can I just get this out in the open first? I LOVE YOUR HAIR. Also, how the hell do you have such fantastic legs? My short stubby 5'3" self is jealous. I love how you styled that jumper with those shorts, srsly bro, mad jealous here.

Also, I feel your pain with the road trip, my friends and I have been planning one, looks like it's not happening any time soon. :( Darn.

I love your outfitt and style. I was wondering what program you used for the four last photos (the ones with the tree and sky) ?
Keep blogging you're such an inspiration for me.:)

I cant get over how gorgeous yet casual this outfit is. I love the unusualness of wearing a knit with shorts (which I am currently hunting for).
