one fine day.

Happy first day of Spring! Now here's Friday's outfit! After our slightly epic trip to the printer, I had my fellow graphic design major, photographer, and friend Kay of Kay Photography take a few street-style-esque photos for me. They came out amazing (as pretty much all of Kay's photos do! The dude is awesome), except for me making weird faces. Blerg.

And of course later I took some more because I wanted some where I wasn't making a weird face, haha. And since it was a gorgeous day out, I went to the nearby park, did some sketching, and got a few good shots.

Hat: BDG/Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Urban Outfitters
T-shirt: Forever 21
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Socks: We Love Colors
Boots: shoe shop in Oxford
Cardigan: American Apparel

I'm pretty sure this is one of my favorite outfits. It's ridiculously hipster-ish and very me (my boyfriend calls me 'hipster', so it's appropriate). And I'm finally wearing my bright blue cardigan! For the longest time I didn't know what to wear it with and was about to give it to Goodwill but I decided to give it another chance. 

Oh hey, detail shot:

Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous Concealer/Foundation
This photo was mostly the result of me messing around with my camera, and I got a couple cool shots. My hair looks all sorts of different colors in this one (it's actually pink, btw), but at least you can see my eyeshadow! I know blue eyeshadow is so 80s/early 90s, but I feel if done correctly and with the right outfit, it can work. What do you guys think?

Also, welcome to all my new followers! I really appreciate it :) I now have a button you can grab to link back to the blog, in the sidebar on the main page!
Have a happy Monday, and a great start to the week!


  1. Love the outfit combo, and agree entirely about the blue eyeshadow! It tends to conjure up horrifying images when mentioned but if done properly can actually be quite amazing! You pull it off well!

  2. awesome blog! following, follow back and enter the 'Queen No Crown' jewelry giveaway!


  3. love the look!
    love how you've layered the outfit,and those combat boots are to die for!
    btw you're totally pulling off that hat,and the pink hair(which actually kinda looks orangish)!

    @Queen but no Crown - Thanks!

    @Sartorial diary - Thanks so much! I wear those boots basically every day. Haha yeah, the hair changes colors depending on the light. Don't forget to follow :)

  5. I love the layers! The blue looks especially fantastic. And as a child of the 90's I am ever a fan of combat boots and floral dresses :)
