school girly.


jumper/tee: f21, otk socks: target, oxfords: bass

with the current 'curse' of looking 10 years younger than my actual age.. why i often feel compelled to play it up with school girl-esque outfits is beyond me. the jumper is actually pinstriped.. though you can't tell in the photos. i've been having one of those i feel blah weeks but it seems for the most part i'm getting over the flu.. a sore throat in the morning and the cough still lingers though.. hopefully they cease and desist by sunday.. when me and dru plus a few others will be running in the aramco half marathon.. wish us luck!! i've trained quite poorly this time around :(

oh and thanks so much for all the get well wishes! you guys are the bestest!

  12. So glad you're feeling better - colds take freakin forever to go away!

    Love the jumper paired with the thigh-highs.

    I totally admire you and Dru for doing a half marathon. It's quite an accomplishment for me if I can run a mile. Whew! I get tired just thinking about it!

  14. Haha, I do this too. It's all about the socks! xx

  15. Yup, I look younger than my age too. I always complain about it, but someone I know told me "In 10 years you'll be happy about it" and I think that person is right.
    I love your outfit, with the knee socks and the shoes. I like the preppy/school girl style.
    Hope you get even better soon! I have a sore throat too and I sound like a chain smoker.
    Wow, you'll run a marathon? Good luck!!

  21. i have the same problem, too - people always think i'm 10 yrs younger...sometimes even more. but i guess we'll appreciate this when we're 40? haha

    and i can't imagine running a marathon...i can barely run around the block.
