SLIDER

Aw, She Got the Velcros

Tee: (thrifted) H&M   Jacket: thrifted   Jeans: Target   Sneakers: thrifted   Bracelets & Necklace: Philippines


"I'm gonna pop some tags, only got $20 in my pocket
I-I-I'm hunting, looking for a come up, this is freaking awesome."
I swear that song by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis was based on my shopping habit. As you can see, half of this outfit is entirely thrifted, and the moment my eyes landed on these quadruple, velcro-strapped sneakers, I immediately heard the line: "Sneakerheads will be like, Aw, (s)he got the velcros" 
Also, listen to this cover of the song by Tyler Ward and the awesome violinist, Lindsey Stirling.

In case you can't tell, I've been wearing more casual outfits lately. Mainly because I've got PE classes four days out of the week, so while juggling my regular classes, I'm also dashing off to pilates or zumba in between. Hence why you are seeing a sports bra underneath this shirt. Hey, it matches the sporty look, right? Oh, and I'm wearing some leggings underneath my jeans...haha! So while it's extremely practical, I'm also just starting to prefer this style overall. It's entertaining to look back at old posts and compare them to what I'm dressing like now. Interesting how much you can change, huh? Who knows what twist my style will take once summer starts!

Also, today is my birthday! I turn 19 today, which is weird to say, because I only just now got used to telling people I was 18. Haha, man, my mind is already going...
I have to go to work today, but its a 5 hour shift, so not too bad. Plus, I wonder what my co-workers have in store...my manager told me last night that I would be the center of attention today...

I like the prints on those jeans. You matched them well with that blue tee. Thanks for posting the spread and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

LOVE that last picture! I am always a fan of the jump shots. I like the more casual look, sometimes I need to remind myself I should take pictures of my every day outfits and not always tights and a dress! Hope you had a great weekend!

The funky/sporty side of me loves those sneakers so much! I just thrifted some velcro wedge sneakers the other day too that I'm excited to wear...what a coincidence! I remember life being much more casual in college too-it just comes down to practicality-you look so much cuter than I ever did though..haha. And those jump shots are killer!! I was just reading Timothy the other night :) That is one of my very favorite passages.

Megan said...

Happy Birthday!! Love those pants :)

OH MY GOSH my brother loves that song so much, hahahaa. Whenever we go drive in his car he has to play it. It is catchy as heck, though, so... I guess it's all right. ;)

Your casual outfits are so cute, though! And perfect for walking around campus. It can be hard to be super dressed up at college all the time--I can't really dress up but 3 days during the week since I have so many art classes and such. Don't wanna be gettin' woodchips up in mah Jeffrey Campbell heels!!

So yeah I understand. ;) I really like the way that your style has evolved! It's still so you, and so cool. And I still love those awesome greyscale floral jeans. And your hair is cute in a braid. UR CUTE K <3

Happy Birthday! (Whoops, it's belated by now.) It's always sort of weird getting use to the new age, I still have stupid moments and write down the wrong age on forms. (Actually, I still write the wrong year on forms, I'm stuck on 2007 for some reason.) I hope you had an awesome day, 19 is a pretty cool age!

I love, love how you have a completely awesome retro 80s look going on here! (It's a good thing, I swear!) I love your bright tee and the off beat cool vibe with it hand off on shoulder and dang girl, you can work a workout look! (I'm jealous, I always look like a dork in my running shorts and leggings. you look adorable and that's such a good idea to wear legging under the jeans.)

I love thrift shop too the only down side to it is that it made thrifting super popular so no when ever I go it's always super picked over.
