Hot (air balloon) Mess

7.15.2011




( Macy's top; F21 shorts, belt, flats, and headband; Express cardigan )

Friday already? Yikes, my summer is flashing right before my eyes! I still haven't ordered my textbooks yet. Last semester I waited until my professors confirmed that we actually did need them (y'know, to save money!). Big mistake. I was slacking in all of my assignments because I waited too long! Not this time. Nope! Ugh, I really don't wanna go back though. I've noticed that most bloggers I've stumbled upon are already done with school, and to that I say, "luckkyyyy..." (and I say this with my best Napoleon Dynamite impression... which isn't that good).

Well, I tried my best for this outfit, but honestly, I'm lookin' a little frumpy! Maybe it's because I was way too lazy to do anything to my hair. I once read that "second day hair" looks way nicer than after you just washed it... I wish that applied to me! Can you even tell I'm wearing a headband? Trae said he didn't even notice! Also, I think this cardigan is just a little too thick to be belted. It's one of my favorite pieces, but I guess I'll have to try a different tactic neck time! Maybe a wider belt would do the trick... Any suggestions?

Have a lovely Friday everyone!

  2. I love the balloon print top! Such a cute look, I like this cardigan. I have so many that I don't think look "right" belted but this one is great

  3. Love this balloon top! I think the cardigan looks really cute with it, but maybe a different belt? I have zero experience belting cardigans.
    Good luck with school! I'm one of those lucky ladies who is DONE with it (for the near future at least)

  4. I love the balloon top! And I think the cardigan works - if you don't like the belt, what about some sort of scarf that you tied it off with? Something like that might work. I think you look good though!

  5. Oh my, the print on the top is so lovely! I actually really like the effect of the belted cardigan, it's different but it still looks good! Haha, I always used to leave it until the last minute to buy my textbooks at school and it was always a bad move. You've done the right thing this year!!

  6. I love the air balloons on your shirt, too cute. I think this outfit is cute but perhaps a wider belt would cinch in the waist more...
