It's that time of year again: not too warm yet not too cold. It's a confusing time for dressing. Wearing shorts and a tank top feels chilly, but wearing a turtleneck with jeans feels stuffy. Solution? A little bit of both worlds! This sweater + shorts combo is sort of an odd pairing, but it worked for this in-between day.
Wearing heels with shorts was also a bit risky for me. It's a combo I usually avoid because of an offhanded comment made back in high school calling me "a slut." Which is ridiculous, but it stuck with me all these years. Having bare legs with towering heels does leave me feeling somewhat uncomfortably exposed, but how is it any different than a mini skirt? If anything shorts offer a bit more coverage so you're not showing your bum with a brisk wind! I'm four years out of high school now and it's silly to let meaningless comments still dictate my style.
Like the above coffee shop sign says, finals week is here. Thankfully I'm not worried. Most of my school work was turned in weeks prior, and only one or two small finals are left. Having easy finals still detour me away from drinking coffee like I have hard ones. I'll welcome any excuse for coffee houses having special deals and staying open later! Bring on the coffee this week guys. x
With much love, Lauren
