Sheer Audacity


Outfit Details:   Sweater: apostrophe   Skirt: thrifted+DIY   Wedges: c/o My Hot Shoes

After today, I only have four more days of high school left, then next Monday I'm graduating.
Oh. My. Gosh.
Where did the time fly!?
I still remember thinking I had months left before the end arrived.


But just like a really good book or movie goes, you reach the ending much too quickly. And if you're like me, you want to relive it as much as possible and read/watch it again and again.
If only life was like that.


Of course, if I had to go through all the homework part again, I'd drop out and just get my GED. Haha, but its the memories shared that are so valuable to me.


Anyway, I've been loving my new floral wedges from My Hot Shoes so much! I had to take them for a spin again. This time I wore them with a maxi skirt that I thrifted. See how its partly sheer? I cut out half of the inside layer to create that effect. You can't imagine how excited I was to discover the second layer underneath. I'd been searching for a skirt like that so I could do this DIY to it!

Ring: Forever 21   Bag: vintage

So coming up soon, I'll be going to a BBQ party held by a friend of Saffron's. We'd met briefly before he added me on Facebook and we started talking. I'm happy to say he seems like a good guy, and I want to get to know people like him for next year at college! 
He's going to the same one as I, so hopefully between him and Saffron I'll manage to make a good circle of friends. :)


Oh, and guess what? I got my first journalist gig. Haha, it's nothing really, but the local newspaper features star students occasionally, and I was asked to do the write-up on my friend Kevin since he was chosen as their academic all-star!
So proud of him. He's a really smart kid and deserves it.
Plus, I can say I've written a bit for a newspaper.

Man, you and your super fashionable wedges! Seriously, the prints on these are too cute! And I seriously adore that ring. The sheer skirt is incredible, too, of course.

B'aw! Four more days...! So sad, but at the same time I bet a part of you is itching to get out of there. ;) That's also seriously awesome that you get to write a bit for a newspaper-- hey, every little thing counts!

I'm really digging the baggy sweater/baggy skirt look. I did a street style post on a girl wearing a very similar outfit (same color skirt!)

It's such a relaxed, yet timelessly classy look. These shoes are gorgeous and add just the right amount of youthful playfulness.

I LOVE what you've done with the skirt! That half-sheer look is popping up everywhere, and I would never have thought to just do that myself! I'm totally copying this.

Very original!

Congrats on getting the article feature! Even if it's small, it's a start! :) Super cute skirt too! I almost bought one that was a midi length to cut out the inside lining of, but I didn't get it. I found other stuff I liked instead. Haha! <3
