Shakes your hand, Takes your gun


Isn't it funny how when you were younger, finding the perfect outfit for the first day of school seemed like the most important thing in the world? Now it's more like, "Oh, I don't have class until the afternoon and it's not a big deal." This is what I wore to my first lectures today, and thought I didn't spend hours agonizing over the details of this particular outfit, I'm still rather pleased with it's outcome.

Pucci-esque top - Swapped with the ever wonderful Hail Mary!
Skirt - American Apparel
Brown Crocodile Boots - Doc Martens

When I was a little girl, I used to dress up in my absolute most favourite dress on the first day of school. And then when the teacher said I looked nice, my day just couldn't get any better. I started school a few weeks ago, but it seems everybody feels the obliquity to tell everyone that they look so nice.
I really like your top and the outfit looks really comfy.

haha, i hear you. the summer time it was all pencil skirts but now that i have important places to be and am constantly late, its whatever looks semi deccent and could i ride my bike in that?

but i love the outfit
i'm kind of a fan of pucci though i never really wear anything like it.

b-t-dubs- the one thing that totally bothers me is people in their pjs or sweat pants. but thats cos i live in new york and cant imagine going out on the street, with real ppl who aren't college students and look so sloppy/wearing sleep gear when ppl are in suits.
so strange

Mimi said...

That top is so cool! Haha, I'll probably still plan my first day outfit anyway. I do have class at 8:30am after all. Ugh.

I try to wear something sort of nice on my first day of school because I find if I wear something really boring it's weird when I actually do dress nice. Like everyone is wondering "why is she so dressed up?" I know no one really cares, but I still try to start off well. I love your top, and the croc docs (ha) are awesome. It makes them a little classier maybe, but still totally doc martens.

Velo said...

have a nice day girl..

We would get to pick an outfit out of the Sears catalog for the first day of school when I was a kid. They never had anything cool, it was a bunch of plaid or swiss dot stuff. No wonder I couldn't make any friends.
That top is a great score from Hail Mary, it can be dressed up or down.
Your hair looks great, btw.
