a few months ago i wrote about one of my favorite bloggers, sincerely, jules, and how much i wish i could look as stylish as her a in sweatshirt. if i could pull of a sweatshirt like she does i would do it all the time.. (currently working on this since i just look like a mess). anyways, i decided to start a series where i’d feature some of my favorite outfits from some of my favorite bloggers. even though i’ve already done a post on jules before, i had to do an updated one. as i mentioned before the only way i can think of to describe her is simply that she is the shit. pardon me, but it’s true. her style is the definition of california cool, and if anyone could push me to wear a pair of high tops with a dress or heels during the day, it’s jules. i love how i talk as if i know her, even though i clearly don’t, but she is one of those bloggers you want to know. i could totally see us hanging out at the beach or browsing the shelves at zara, but that sounds so creepy so i’m going to stop. all in all she seems like a fashion buddy/a friend you’d want at your side, so i’m more than happy to kick off this series with her.
i will admit that i like sneakers. i like them a lot. i can easily switch from wearing ballet flats into a pair of high tops and feel completely comfortable with the way it looks (even if my brother doesn’t agree). my brother is a self-professed “sneakerhead”, and knows an unfathomable amount of information about the sneaker world. he can tell you about the start of the jordan brand, the best possible way to obtain a pair of sneakers through an online seller (it’s not as sketchy as it sounds… or that’s what he tells me), along with the proper preparation and shopping route/operation necessary to get the newest pair of sneakers (honestly, it’s intense.. i’d be scared). the release of the lebron 9 south beaches was a big deal in my house, let me tell you… although i don’t know as much as my brother about the sneaker world, i do know a fair share about shoes and “regular people” sneakers, thank you very much. until then i’ll wait for my next visit back home, filled with updates on how my brother’s “business” is going.
there are certain ways to gauge whether or not i happen to be tired. some of the signs are: falling asleep in my 12.30 pm class, typing words that i thought were english but happen to be my own dialect (it’s not impressive, it’s discouraging..), dreaming about chai lattes, etc. the biggest indicator that i’m tired is my ability to get dressed. yes, get dressed. obviously i always put on clothes, but the amount of thought which i put into my outfits depends on how rested i feel. i may have an outfit idea the night before (which might make me feel like a fashion maverick), but as soon as i wake up the next morning, bright and early at 7 am, i find myself grumbling about the state of my life. next thing i know i’m grabbing a pair of workout leggings, flats, and a sweater. still acceptable, but not what i originally had planned. so i found a few photos which i will look to for comfy-chic class inspiration, but i plan on downplaying a few of the combinations… can’t get too ambitious, now can we?
