halogen's on bright when 2 pm is like 2 in the night.

free people sweater, h&m shirt, splendid skirt, tabbisocks thigh highs, zara booties, vintage furla bag.

I love this huge knit sack of a sweater, from the seam running down the front and back to the deep V-neck to the faded, sort of tea-stained shade of dusty pink it is, if that makes sense. Or maybe I'm too descriptive with my colors...I once spent 5 minutes arguing with a friend if the color of a pen's ink was more like "creamy coral" or "strawberry fraise" only to have my other friend (the owner of the aforementioned pen) tell us to shut up because it was "just red". Wrong. So wrong.
Unfortunately all the thick knit fabric I have to stuff into my waistband can be a pain and will poof out weirdly, but I guess that's just a natural side effect of trying to tuck anything this oversized in.
Other than that, I'm just waiting for it to get warmer and sunnier (so far the weather's obeying me reluctantly) and being productive while I wait (like joining a dance class because I haven't properly exercised in ages). I just might have a tropical weekend getaway coming soon...after I finish these damn papers and midterms.

Oh midterms! All of my projects and midterms are due this coming week as well so I can relate. Ugh! Good luck with yours!

I really like the sheer button up that you are wearing underneath your sweater. The way the your socks are see-through somehow balances with the sheerness very well!
