No Talking

No Talking- The Zolas
With so many of my friends heading back to school right away, and this crisp fall breeze we've been having, I felt like wearing a "first day of school outfit". That was always my favorite thing about going back to school and even though it's been a few years since I've actually sat in a classroom I decided to get all dressed up and pretend I was!
I dug out some favorites from last fall; my old leopard print cardigan, grey knee highs and the desert boots I stumbled upon. The only problem is that now I have even more items that I need to add to my wishlist (see list at right). How awesome would this leopard print look with an emerald coloured shirt or skirt?? Augh. My poor bank account.
Cardigan- Rickis (circa 2003)
Shorts- Smart Set
Boots- Liz Claiborne via Winners
Cami- Forever 21
Purse and Necklace- Thrifted
Belt- Vintage
Socks- Dollarama (hah!)

I guess I am going back to school...kinda. I'm taking a photography class this fall (a legit one), and will be studying fashion 101 (self-directed. It involves reading 10 magazines per month. Very advanced and challenging). I love learning and actually do miss school. I never really understood why everyone complained about it so much. I think I'll always be a nerd in that respect!
Anyways, much love and hugs to all the other nerds out there too!


  1. I love love love that cardigan! How cute and perfect for fall :)

  2. I love your cardi! Haha, and your description of your fashion 101 course!

  3. Ooh your cardigan is amazing. I don't think I've ever seen it before. And I see that your boots are another Winners find. Hmph! I'm so jealous. That's so exciting about your photography class!! You'll have to give me some tips. And if you ever need someone to study Fashion 101 with, I'm your girl!! xx

  4. Love the color of those socks with those shoes! I love taking classes...if you're doing a self-study Fashion class, maybe share what you're looking at with us? :D T'would be terribly interesting.
