In the Year 2525

Day 25 of the 30 for 30 Challenge!  So here is an embarrassing confession: when I was in high school, I kept a diary of what outfits I wore so I wouldn't repeat an outfit in any given semester.  If anyone was snooping and thought they'd found my diary full of juicy high school details (HA!), they got my outfits written out item by item.  I have to get over my dislike of constantly repeating items with this challenge.  It is actually much easier to get dressed in the morning.  And no diary needed!
Top: Merona
Skirt: Merona
Tights: Old Navy
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Bag: Coach




Okay, confess!  We all do embarrassing things in high school!  Let me hear it!

And don't forget to enter my first ever giveaway!  Enter to win a $25 gift card to Banana Republic!

You are STUNNING. Wow. I think you look absolutely gorgeous. These colors do wonders for your skintone and hair! And those tights are incredible! I've never seen anything like them.

Embarrassing in high school? What are you talking about? Okay fine. I farted in show choir. While the room was otherwise silent. Oops.

well in highschool I had the worst hair :/

Beth Ellen said...

I love this outfit! The tights, the blouse, the skirt, okay just all of it!

In high school... I was the freakishly skinny nerd with huge outdated glasses. Yes, I would never go back ever.

I went to high school in the 80s. Pretty much everything we did was embarrassing. We had BIG hair-the higher the hair, the closer to God. We wore high top Reeboks tied in the back with 2 different colored slouchy socks with our jeans tucked in them. We wore NEON everything.

Hmmm..wonder why 80's fashions haven't come back? LOL

I love the sheen on that skirt :)

And I don't think keeping a journal of outfits is embarassing. I had no (or few) friends at one of the schools I went to. Every day at lunch time I sat in my favorite teacher's classroom and visited with him. On days he missed school or I didn't have the same lunch period as him, and if I felt particularly uncomfortable with the fact that I was so shy, I would have a fake conversation on the payphone just so I looked like I was occupied. That's sad AND embarassing (only because I have admitted it publicly).

I love the colors in this outfit, and I really like the contrast between the pumps and the tights!! Super cute! And what a surprise for any would-be diary snoop! (And sounds like you were meant to be a style blogger too!) Gosh, I think my whole blog is sort of an embarrassing confession to the world about my love of fashion and clothes (And shoes... I have an addiction!) :)

I just found your blog--what a cute idea, using numbers to mark the day! I was nowhere near that organized for this 30 for 30, haha. I also am a fan of that shirt. It's a nice, subtle leopard print and the neutral color is fabulous.

Love the top! You rock those hose!

High school, hmm . . .

I'm sure I did enough embarassing things but I have a story of how dorky I was. I was a cheerleader (I should stop right there). I was so into it and when choosing colleges it was all based on wanting to be a cheerleader in college. I chose Washington State because our fight song was based on theirs. I chose U of Oregon because their colors are green and yellow like my high school. Do 17-year-olds really know what they're doing?

DaniellaBella said...

I did the same thing in highschool (except I may had one or two "he's so cutes" as well)! And I may or may not have attempted to draw my outfits in my university day planner... uhh....

You look stunning and you are really beautiful.

I love your blog.

What a sexy-chic ensemble! You wear animal print so well.
Let's see, in high school I was a mathlete - but proud of it! We even celebrated Pi Day with, well, pie.

Tiffany said...

I love this ensemble, so chic! Great color palette, I adore the chocolate tights with nude pumps.

Hmmm embarassing high school stories... I did a lip sync/dance routine to The Go-Gos "We Got the Beat" for a drama class in pleather pants and a pink t-shirt that said "angel" across the front. Not one of my finer moments.

I love this gorgeous blouse!

In high school I was in concert choir and a drama geek, so pretty much everything I did was embarrassing. ;)
