I'm gonna need more hangers.

At my university, our dorms are called “colleges,” and certain days out of the year, we celebrate our college’s individuality with a theme. There’s also drinking involved, but that’s beside the point. A few of our themes have been Will Smith and Oil Kings/Texas Queens. I think I’ve been waiting all year for Kindergarden Day.

The skirt…I love this skirt. Got it at the Tommy Hilfiger store at the outlet for $12! Yainorite? I haven’t bought anything during lent (yes, I did make it) and afterwords, didn’t really splurge at all. Anyways, back to raving about this skirt. It reminds me of Prada SS08, the last collection by Miuccia that I ever really liked.

It’s pretty uncanny and I’m pretty freakin lucky I scored this in my size. Love it so much. It’s an ideal ladylike summery skirt; perfect for picnics. Another piece I would consider a go-to piece for instant style. Don’t you love it when you know your relationship with something newly bought is going to go so well? Ah la amor de ropas.

It’s too bad you can’t see the shoes well in the grass up there. They’re fantastic. I got them when K-Drama and I went to the outlet (Houston Premium Outlets that is) for $30!! It was between them and a pair with cupcakes all over. I already have a pair of printed ones, plus all these tweens were clamoring over the cupcakes. These spoke to me. They’re glittery, they’re freaking gold! Yeah, of course I said yes. I got him a pair too, a late b-day pressie.

The handsome chocolate leather type texture suits him perfectly BUT, there was this other high tops pair that was white with gold zipper detail, men’s size ONLY and he wouldn’t go for them. :( tragic, they were only $20. OH wellllll. I win otherwise though.

Oh yeah, that’s a dinosaur moon bounce behind me btw.

I’ve been wanting to wear a bow this huge for awhile now. I’m still very pleased with the way my idea to use my scarf for a bow materliazed perfectly into this headpiece confection that cost me nothing. I wore it for the Candyland study break too. I love it I love it. I’m gonna try to wear any other chance I get now. It delights me greatly.

As for the bracelets, I did have more, but I chose to hold back a bit. It was humid and gross outside. Other complaints: my hair is getting dull/styleless and looking at Tavi’s new Mia Farrow cut and Brooke’s Tao Okamoto style bob, I’m itching for a shorter dud myself. Just gotta hang on a little longer for the summer…

Ah, I just love the vibrance of that day, though I felt I still could’ve gone to greater heights, more more more. But you know I always feel that way. I want another dress up day like this. Am I asking for too much?

OMG, you look adorable. I just compared with actual pics of you in kindergarten, and I must say this is a very accurate and stylish adaptation of your attire then! I especially love the big bow on your head. *hugs*
