Hi there! Today is the day that you guys get to see me without my glasses! I wrote in a Sunday Funday recently that I got contacts, but I didn't share with you how I looked like without them. So here it is!
"Style Diary" is a new series I'm starting on Style Generis (what this blog will be called starting on Monday. I will also change my url to stylegeneris.blogspot.com). It's basically just something to categorise my outfit posts in. There will be a new "Style Diary" up on Style Generis every Friday. I hope that you enjoy!
Dress: Taka Plaza | Cardigan: Aéropostale | Belt: Taka Plaza | Shoes: Converse | Necklace: Topshop | Watch: Kenneth Cole
I thought the name "Freshman Fashion" was pretty appropriate for this outfit because it was what I wrote on my first day of high school. I wanted to be comfortable, but still make a fashionable (and good!) first impression.
I cinched the sweet polka dot dress in at the waist with a deep red belt and paired it with a burgundy striped cardigan to make the dress a bit more casual. I didn't want to look too dressed up. That would pretty much be like having a sign with the word "freshman" above my head, which would NOT be good.
To finish off the outfit, I added a dainty charm necklace that I got from Topshop and my trusty pair of sequin Converse. Fun fact, these were actually the first pair of Converse I ever got, all the way back in the summer of 2010 when I went to New York and first fell in love with the city.
My high school experience has actually been going pretty well so far. Everyone was super friendly and I didn't get lost (too many times, hehe) because the school only had two floors compared to my middle school which had three. I'll tell you guys a bit more about how my first week went in this week's Sunday Funday coming to you, on, well, Sunday. I think that was pretty self-explanatory.
How has your week been? What do you think of the whole Converse and dress combination? I know a few of my friends think it's absolutely horrendous (you know who you are...), but what about you? Please leave me a comment sharing your thoughts! I'd love to read what you have to say.
Thanks for reading!
