Growing up I faced the option of preppy style. Polos, Aeropostale, Abercrombie, Chinos, Loafers. As a kid who hung out with the rock'n'roll crowd, I turned to black pants, ripped jean jackets, thrift store tees, and chuck taylors. Now exploring my own style, I've learned to embrace preppier styles, but doing it with my own twist.
This collared shirt has an amazing cut that makes my shoulders look slim, my frame look long and lean. It's just so *crisp*. I need to show off the shape better next time, but the shirt was mostly acting as a jacket this afternoon. While everyone else seems to be sweating the heat, I'm enjoying some nice rain and cooler weather. I broke up the the look with my strappy Trippens.
I'm one week away from school starting. A bit terrifying, a bit exciting. I've spent the past week getting things ready to go, especially planning meals to carry with me on the days I'll be on campus. In the past I've been able to deal with grabbing something from the cafeteria or a small snack in my bag, but my days are going to be much longer, and I can't afford the caf this semester. Any one have any good tips for packed lunches? So far I'm looking at pasta salad and sandwiches.
