The Details



The Story
If I was a celebrity, this would be one of those outfits that would get me body shamed like none other. I hope this is an exaggeration and I'm overestimating how awful people can be, but I don't think I am. Luckily, I'm just another college girl on the interwebz, so here's to being anonymous enough that nobody cares. 

But let's talk about this look, because I've never worn anything like this. Crop tops have always been my number one, but they've always been complimented by a high-waisted bottom. I'm not sure if it was my boyfriend's presence (finally got to see him this weekend after 2 months), the summer weather and fall landscape that have been plaguing the area, or the simple need for a change, but this look felt refreshing. It made me feel inspired, happy and confident. 

...also made me get pumped about blogging again. Sorry about that, by the way! It's just been really difficult to find someone willing and able to take my photos, and I'd rather have a few qualitative looks than a bunch of pictures I take in my dorm room.
