The Scars of Your Love Remind Me of Us They Keep Me Thinking, We Could of Had It All...

Shorts (that you can't quite see...), flats, necklace and boyfriend button-up: Forever 21; Sweater: Thrifted Sparkle & Fade via Crossroads (but here is a VERY similar one for you!); Photos of me by: Alex N.

I'm officially a city gal, now that I've traded in my Honda for a clipper card. I wore this outfit for a day of thrifting and happy hour-ing with Alex, but for some reason, I got a lot of stares...especially on muni. I like to think it had something to do with the fact that I looked incredibly cozy and put-together, but realistically it probably had something to do with the fact that it looked like I wasn't wearing any bottoms. For the record, I WAS, in fact, wearing bottoms (shorts, to be exact). However, as I pranced around the streets, it appeared as though I was one of those "leggings ARE pants" supporters. I am not. Leggings should never be a replacement for pants. Seriously. Truth be told, had my sweater just been a tad bit longer, I would have just worn leggings. But, my sweater barely covered my bum, so shorts were quite necessary. Apologies that I don't have a picture of me standing up, but if you can check out my blog's Facebook page to see a quick Instagram I shot for an idea of how long the sweater was on me. Anyways, this is the amazing sweater I picked up at the Crossroads Trading Co. Holiday Party from a few posts back.  I absolutely adore it and I'm so glad it found a new home with me. The necklace is something I purchased at least a year or so ago, but I've always had a hard time trying to pair it with my outfits. So, imagine my surprise when it finally found an outfit to complement. Don't you just love it when things come together?

THAT SWEATER. I am obsessed. Also, I tried leggings last year and was disgusted by myself and got rid of them. They just are not pants. They somehow become see through at the worst times....
Anyways, I love you cute preppy style!

Gorgeous; Love the chunky jumper + necklace combo! I think leggings can be pants sometimes, but it's a bit of a grey area, haha! <3
