It's Many Hundred Miles And It Won't Be Long

Top, shorts, ring, purse and tights: Forever 21; Cardigan: Nordstrom; Shoes: Guess; Photos by: DJ Lan

Train Song (Cover) - Feist and Ben Gibbard

I never really talk about my outfits on here, do I? So, today, let's do just that. I got these shoes a couple Christmases ago as a gift to myself. The moment I saw them, I fell in love. In fact, my first words to these dear shoes were, "Hello, Lover," a la Carrie Bradshaw. I waited and waited until they went on sale, like I knew they would, and the minute they did, BAM...they became a part of my closet forever. The funny thing is, this is only the second time I have ever worn them, and the first time I wore them was on my 21st birthday. I think it's probably time to give these bad boys another night out on the town. Moving on, I got these Forever 21 linen shorts a while back, as well. They were (and still are) a size too big for me, but I couldn't bear the idea of leaving the store without them, especially since I knew if I didn't snag them, someone else would. So, I reasoned that since I love over-sized clothing anyways, I would love these shorts too. And I do. The purse I got just a few weeks ago, and I hardly leave home without it. It's extremely soft to the touch and has so many pockets that my whole life basically fits into it. Who says being a Bag Lady isn't stylish? Finally, I got the butterfly cardigan at Nordstrom a few months back and thought that it was such a staple item, that I got it in not one, not two, but THREE colors. I always have such a hard time deciding between things, so I usually end up getting something in at least two colors. My mom says this is because I am an Aquarius.

I like the masculine element that you are employing here, evening it out with a buttload of femininity. ("Buttload" isn't very feminine, though, is it?) It looks faboosh, love.

I absolutley loove your style and how you shop everywhere instead of just one store! :) I really want to start doing that but find it a bit hard because no one at my school has their own style.. thet're all "cookie-Cutter." I'm really glad I found your blog thanks to Teen Vogue, and I'll definately be following you once I create my own blog! :)

A) Those shoes make my heart hurt. They're so perfect!

B) That cover of Train Song is really good. As much as I try to dislike Ben Gifford due to his intrinsic hipster value, I can't because he has a great, interesting voice and he's married to Zooey Deschanel.

C) It's so funny to me when the shoes I find incredible go on sale. I'm always like, "No one else realizes how amazing these shoes are?" I think it's just that most people in Connecticut aren't as sartorially daring as I am. More shoes for me!

By the way I love the oversized shorts. I think it's the slouchiness that makes them so fantastic!

wow the shorts really work on you, & the way you wear them they don't look too big at all.
the butterfly cardigan is defs worth buying in 3 colourways...gives you a bit of warmth but doesnt detract from your outfit.'
