What you give is what you get

Cardigan - H&M, sweater - vintage, jeans - H&M, jewelry - antique, boots - Deena and Ozzy

I've been wearing the same thing pretty much everyday since I last posted. I've quite a bit on my plate, and sifting through my abundance of summer clothes has left me a little uninspired as well as upset since the season has passed.

Maybe the boots that I ordered will jump start my motivation to wear anything besides my Doc Martens, jeans, a tshirt, and cardigan. Incidentally, the boots are Doc Martens - but they're tartan fabric with a heel. I can't decide if I want to dye them. We'll see.

This past weekend I went up to Rhode Island to visit schools. It's anyone's guess what the lovely campus pictured below is, while the second photo is just a vibrant tree spotted on the way.

I've grown to detest talking about colleges, but I'm just going to say I really, really fell in love with Brown and RISD. Both were even more perfect than I could have imagined. Fingers crossed... not that I've sent an application to either yet.

  2. Aw. I remember college searching and visiting! It'll all work out, I promise :) I love your big comfy sweater- it looks exactly that: comfy! And the white top is pretty.

  3. I found your blog via Breanne's and just randomly started going through your archives. I really really adore (I am not sure if that is the right word) how you are so young , but you already have a very defined direction in terms of your style. And good luck with your school applications, I can kind of understand as I was in more or less the same boat a few years ago and my brother is applying for next year. It only gets harder every year, I feel.

    And majority of the leaves have already fallen here in Toronto, it makes me incredibly nostalgic to see those vibrant trees.

    Look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Love from Toronto, Canada

  4. good luck with those applications, i remember them to be extremely tedious. i've heard a lot of amazing things about Brown, but either way, judging from those photos, whichever school you're consider looks amazing! ...and i'm in LOVE with your shoes ;)
