Floral Trousers, White Sailor Top, Black Converse, & a Jean Jacket

Happy Monday everyone! This is the outfit I wore to my comprehensive exams two Fridays ago. Matt snapped these pictures for me outside of Cine (a local movie theatre) after we watched a film at the Eco Film Festival that was going on. We had a really fun weekend after I took my exams. 

I was originally wearing some really cute tan loafers this day, but they tore up my feet walking out to campus. Once I got back to the apartment I had to find some comfy shoes to walk all the way downtown. The only ones I had out in Athens that weren't sandals were my trusty old Converse. And when I say "old" I mean it. They're from junior year of high school. Mom bought them for me to wear in my Jojo costume when I was in Seussical the Musical. They may look ratty but they're incredibly comfortable after this many years of use! Putting them on was like magic after the damage done to the back of my ankles from those other shoes. Magic comfort.

P.S. Don't you guys love the Athens bulldog I posed with? They're all over town! 


top: forever 21 | pants: h&m | shoes: converse | jacket: so... - thrifted 




I hope you guys have a great week ahead of you. I'll just be working and hopefully getting some research done between that! I tried to catch up on some of your blogs over the weekend and it really made me wish I had more time to put into this blog. Soon I'll be able to introduce some new features though! Any suggestions on things you'd like to see?

Have a wonderful Monday!

Now I'll have McElligot's Pool in my head all day! :-)

I have an old, old pair of converse too. They just last forever and they're so comfortable! I'm really digging the floral pants, btw.

I still have my chucks too! I swear those things last forever. Loving the little sailor blouse & floral pants combo. This is really making me want to get a pair of my own :-)

Your hair! Ohmygosh, I just love this haircut! It's been fun to see that different things you've been doing with such short hair but I think this is one of my favorites. (Now I want to go get mine trimmed again.) Also, floral trousers? You totally pull them off.
