Texture Versus Print

Oh hey, it's been two weeks since my last post! Finals just ended for me last Friday and YES I AM FINALLY FREE!! I can finally enjoy summer. Naturally, the past few days have been hot although it did rain yesterday, and that was really weird. Oh well, that's climate change for us (unfortunately).

Anyway, as I was saying, the weather's been crazy hot. If school rules allowed it, I probably would have worn shorts every day. Actually, shorts are allowed in school. But for some reason, my demure skirts and shorts don't meet the required length (at least one inch below the longest finger when standing up). I've come to the conclusion that my arms are unusually long. That's why you'll often see me outside of school wearing either a skirt or shorts because I use all my pants in school haha!

So for today, I decided to wear this pleated plaid skirt that I've had since I was in first or second year high school. I rarely wear it because I find it difficult to wear it without looking like a schoolgirl. But then I had this idea of wearing it with my pastel pink eyelet top. A lace-like top and a skirt-- perfect for the summer heat! I rarely wear "clashing" pieces, but I thought they contrasted each other perfectly. What do you guys think?





Eyelet top: Topshop || Plaid skirt: Forever 21 || Necklace: The Landmark
Bracelets: Promod || Tank top: Uniqlo || Nude flats: Lower East Side (Payless Shoe Source)
  Fitclip: Renouveau Manila || Nails: Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat (c/o Nailogy)

Like I said, I've had the skirt since around 4 years ago. Back then, I was still a size Medium, so I had to use my fitclip again! My top's actually a size 6 so yeah, I just had to wing it lol. 

So there, happy summer! Also, have a blessed week. Will publish another post by the weekend, stay tuned! You might want to subscribe to my blog via email for updates, or follow me on Google Friend Connector (GFC). You can do these by checking out my sidebar, thanks!
