Nerdcore

Blame Zooey Deschanel for the curly hair and glasses. I think it's kinda over-kill tbh. I like my glasses and I like my hair curly but I'm worried this is just a bit too much. I watched The New Girl last night and thought Zooey looked so cute with curly hair and glasses, but I'm not sure if I can pull them both off together! I'm not crazy about these photos today.

So this was what I wore today. I had a bit of a nightmare with this shirt this morning. As I said yesterday, I bought two new pairs of jeans yesterday and I tried the blue pair on with this shirt this morning. It just looked all wrong. The shirt didn't tuck in right into the jeans, the jeans looked horrible. I was starting to think I would have to take both the jeans and the shirt back. Then I took the shirt off and the jeans looked great, so I then had to find something to wear with the shirt! I tried it with my high-waisted jeans but it still looked too baggy, so I pulled out my old faithful bandage skirt.It's a kinda over-sized style which I don't really wear, and it takes some getting used to. 

My Mum suggested the tie. It's funny cause when I was in America I knew loads of guys who couldn't tie a tie. Well, I was a Catholic school girl and I've worn a tie since I was 5! I think this outfit is a little preppy, and a little school uniform, but I quite like it. I'm obsessed with tartan right now!

Well we're finally onto the final Godfather film and my stuff is almost packed up to go back to uni. I'm a bit sad because while it has been a sad time at home, it's been good to be back, especially at such a sad time. I'm not looking forward to this semester because I miss my old friends and I'm really bored of spending my life in the library, especially with not one, but TWO dissertations due this semester. But I'm looking forward to going back to dancing and seeing my housemates. I can't believe next time I'm home for the holidays I will have almost finished my degree!

I'll hopefully be back on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend, guys!

  1. I did love New Girl but it angers me when they try to make a really attractive person seem unattractive just by giving them glasses :( xo

  2. I love that blouse!! I've been wanting one from AA very similar to this one for ages but it's so expensive that I just can't bring myself to buy it, I'll have to keep my eyes open for a cheaper one because this one looks amazing on you =D All your tartan recently is inspiring me to get some tartan on myself and I went in search of an old skirt/kilt of my sister's that I used to wear about 5 or 6 years ago, only to discover that my mum gave it to a charity shop like a month ago!! Just typical haha =D I'm definitely going to buy one though =)
    Miss you!! When we're both less busy we'll have to meet up and do more shopping =D

  10. I love your hair curly!! I can't wait until mine is long enough to curl (although my hair only stays curled for about two hours!!) I love my sort of baggy plaid flannel top, although it is hard to figure out how to wear at first. I think this would also look cute with your red midi-skirt (or even that pleated cream skirt you got from French Connection)? Just a few ideas. :]

  11. I'm so behind but I LOVE this outfit so much!!! Even the little rip in it!! aww.  That is so interesting that you've been watching all the Godfather films. I think I've only seen the first one, myself.  I wasn't really into it though.
