Indressme X Trendy Teal Giveaway + Longboarding OOTD

 So first off, I've got a giveaway going for you that involves winning a $40 gift voucher to InDressMe! They're an online site with some amazing stuff, guys. Just check out a few of my favorites from there.

 Yeah, really cute, right? They're like another Romwe in my opinion! In case you're wondering, this giveaway IS international, so no matter where you're reading this from, feel free to join in on this! So you know what to do - enter through the Rafflecopter widget below. :)


Now, on to the outfit part!
Tank: c/o Very Honey   Scarf: Hot Topic   Jeans: (thrifted) Bullhead   Flats: c/o My Hot Shoes


This is what I wore for classes last Friday (yeah, this was a while ago, sorry!). I got quite a few compliments on both my scarf and studded flats. What I love about these slippers is how they don't leave blisters on my heel. A lot of flats do that to me after a full day of walking around. Thankfully, these are well-made and are mercifully comfortable all day long.


So Kirsten and I decided to practice some longboarding on campus this time, and thankfully it was mostly clear of students when we went. It was so much fun just whizzing along the cement trails. We're both starting to get a sense for it - definitely could use some more polishing up, but I'm feeling more confident. Maybe soon I'll use it during the school day... ;)



There was this one embarrassing moment though. Haha, so I put too much weight on my back leg, which made the board slip out from under my feet and go flying across the sidewalk into the grass. I went after it and picked it up, and right as I stand, this guy on his longboard goes pushing past and kind of smirks at me before saying "Hey."
Mild moment of embarrassment. Aha, oh well, I know I just need to keep spending time working on it. I'll get it eventually - I'm determined to pick this up!


Patrick gave me some links on where I could check out longboard reviews and watch videos on the different kinds, so I've been doing a little research. Naturally, the one I want is one of the more expensive ones. Sigh. Its actually the same brand as this one that I'm borrowing. Patrick's being really sweet though and told me I could use his for this semester since he has another one. Yay!

A photo session for a wedding was taking place in the background in case you're wondering.
So college has been testing my procrastinating ways. I really need to get a handle on that bad habit. My excuse however, is that I work better under pressure. I really can not focus on my work until I feel that time crunch. Then I can whip out exactly what I need and stay zeroed in on what I've got to do. 
In other college updates, I've fallen into a love/hate relationship with my dance class. I get intimidated from all the dance majors that are in there, which makes me lock up and not move as smoothly. Its incredibly difficult to let go of inhibitions when I have no clue what I'm doing, and it looks like everyone else does! Luckily, I've met two other girls who are new to dancing like me, so we like to stick together throughout the drills.
While it's frustrating, there are moments where I truly enjoy the dance sequences we're learning. Some of the dance moves feel so good and freeing. Our instructor even praised me today, when I thought no one was looking. Aha, she was walking us through this one movement and I was imitating it to practice, and all of sudden I hear: "Yes! Exactly like that, that was beautiful Linda."


I'm hoping by the end of this semester I'll at least be able to move more smoothly and gracefully. You have no idea how incredible some of the other girls in my class are. They move as if they're living art.


I'd like to continue dancing into next semester, although perhaps not as rigorous or advanced as this class. I hear there's a beginning class that teaches you how to do dances like the waltz, fox trot, and many other partner-dances; I'd definitely like to try that! I mentioned this to Patrick and he said he might like taking that class too. ;)

I can fully relate to the 'bad habit'. It was the same with me - long nights right before deadlines. But it worked well in the end. xo

I really like this outfit and the first photo of you is my favourite.
those studded loafers make such a cool combo with the skull print scarf and the pink'ish top adds this feminine side at the same time.
good luck with your studies (all of them ;), btw!

I feel the same way with my chorus class. All of the sopranos (except me) are voice majors so they're all flaunting their "bel canto" voices, making me feel like I'm the worst singer possible! I'm a mediocre singer so I try to sit close to the altos, where my non-vocalist friends are. :)

I love how much a scarf pulls an outfit together, and it's such an easy piece!!

And remember to have fun in your dance class! Since you aren't a dance major, take this as an opportunity to NOT be perfect, and instead just enjoy the practice! Think of how stressful it must be for the actual dance majors where their career depend on it... ;)

ah shoes that don't actually give you blisters, what a blessing!! I love the studded flats- slippers can look daggy sometimes but the studs give them that extra bit of edge. love the scarf too! :)

LOVE the studded loafers. With that scarf, perrrfect! This look is so awesome. And those jeans make your legs look FABULOUS, girl! <3 I am seriously impressed with your longboarding. I can't skateboard or anything like that for the life of me. So that you can even stay on it for any amount of time is an accomplishment if ya ask me! :) I can't dance either, so i'm equally impressed that you're sticking with it even though its hard. You go girl! <3
