 This is officially a FALL outfit. Just wanted to put that out there.

IT IS FINALLY RAINING HERE. WATER IS COMING FROM THE SKY.
Thank you for your prayers/rain dances/voodoo sacrifices.

You know when you order something, then while you're waiting for it you start to double think it? Like "hmm did I really like that color" or "am I even going to wear that"?? That was me with this cardigan. In the past, I haven't really been a "cardigan person", so I was skeptical.

Three words: it. has. pockets.

I'd have been sold on that alone, but now I've gotten rather attached to it's swinging coziness, and the color that is bright enough to not be schlub, but lowkey enough to match nearly everything. It's perfect for the so called "smart temperature control" at school. The "smart" part is that you have to be smart enough to be psychic and know that morning if the classroom is going to be freezing or the sixth circle of Dante's inferno.

 Speaking of school: in these photos, my bag is full of my schoolbooks for ONE class. I have to carry that up and down four flights of stairs and it is literally backbreaking. If you don't believe me, you can talk to Charlie in 207, because he's in a body cast. FROM GERMAN HOMEWORK. Solid proof that school is a health hazard + a sturdy backpack is the only thing between you and imminent stair tripping.

I wear nothing but docs to school to minimize my injury potential. So far it's working out quite well except for the starbucks barista who thinks it's the height of comedy to call me "combat girl". Forget to put in my caramel and you'll see combat buddy.  I stopped wearing my burgundy ones for a while because it was summer and it felt weird, but now that we're pretending it's fall, it's okay again.

I'm not even going to talk about the stripy shirts 
because I don't want to tip off my mum as to how many I own.

Tell me what I want to hear. Or what you want to say.

Just remember:

If you're mean, I'll track you down and replace all your shoes with those hideous white tennis things that are so popular among the very sad.
