fiat justitia.





bdg shorts, h&m bag, vintage belt, vintage d&g scarf, boutique nine boots.

I got this university tee last week and while I probably won't be wearing it much except to bed...for a few bucks, why not? School pride! Or more like What We're Studying pride, because, I mean, do they want to make the word LAW any larger? It stands out almost an obnoxious amount, which I find really funny. We law students need assurance that law is cool and we're not psychotic for choosing a subject where we'll read until our brains turn to mush. Yeah, right. Anyways, I thought I'd try to cool-ify the shirt some.
And then finally, FINALLY found a scarf that I wanted to use for a turban...in my grandma's huge (and I mean huge) scarf collection that I discovered a few days ago. We're talking every color, pattern, size, and material. I've always loved hats/turbans/headbands but always got a little self-conscious about wearing them because my ears stuck out a bit so it would get annoying. But my ears have decided to desist for the most part, and I'll be jamming things on my head more often from now on.

i don't wear my school or work tees out too..except in bed.hehe.

i have always wanted to wear turbans out too..but just not have had enough confidence to do so cuz here in PI, people stare..hehe. maybe before the year ends, i'll definitely don one when i go out.

I absolutely love turbans! They have such an exotic look about them and this one is really cool. Don't worry about the ears, I think you totally pull it off.
Love the whole rock-y edge to the look, esp. the belt!

Big Daddy said...

Turbans are so hard to pull off, it looks amazing on you! So cute! And your ears dont stick out at all, don't worry about it girl.

jamie-lee said...

love everything about this outfit - and that the sunglasses match your turban (unintended too I bet!) - I wish I could raid my nana's closet like that - she did give me a bunch of vintage like jumpers which are now sitting in my closet for a rainy day :)

You've pulled the head scarf off really well. Everytime I attempt to put things in my hair I feel ridiculous, but you've inspired me to give it another go!
