back to school


Blouse: Dotti
Skirt: Dotti
Backpack: Forever New
Socks: Cotton On Body
Oxfords: Dorothy Perkins
Accessories: Diva

AAARRGHH GIANT CLOSE UP OF MY FACE. This is what I wore to uni today! It was the first day back after about a million weeks of holidays. I haven't been to uni since October, with the exception of a week-long summer semester in January. It was PAINFUL. I don't know why lecturers feel the need to include "getting to know each other" activities into their lessons. It is AWKWARD and SILLY and I feel like a giant knob when I am forced to introduce myself to a stranger. I end up going, "HIMYNAMEISKIRSTENWHATAREYOUDOING?" while flailing my arms about madly in some sort of crazy-person wave. I am the queen of social interactions.

I really liked my outfit today though! Socks and oxfords are my new favourite combination. I think it looks quite nerdy, which helped with my studiousness during my university adventures today (pffffft not really). I went to the shops yesterday on a mad sock-buying rampage and bought some very excellent pairs. All I want to do now is add to my very small collection and build a mini sock army.

I think that is my cue to stop writing now, as I have just written three sentences about socks. Farewell!

  5. Really cute outfit! Love your skirt. I hate those getting to know you activities too. I always feel awkward and have nothing to say x

  6. Such a cute outfit! I definitely need to 'sock up' my wardrobe (haha, I think I've coined a fashion phrase there...maybe...), and my Uni wardrobe usually consisted of 'whatever I can find to throw on as I'm late for my lecture'! x

  7. BAHAH you look adorable! I love the socks :) And I can totally relate to the weird intro classes. My old roomie is now a professor and she says she has those weird intro classes because she is just as unprepared to start classes as we are. Which really is comforting huh? :)

  9. Kirsten, you looked so stinkin' cute your first day back! I love the outfit (duh!) and your cute backpack. The color looks wonderful.
    Also, did you dye your hair?? If so, I love it; if not, I love it.
    Socks and oxfords rule. Much like yourself. I get really awkward and dumb with the introductions the first week of school. I hate it. I too speak with my hands so I always feel even dumber since I can't control it. :)

    1. Nooo I haven't dyed it, I think it just has a reddy tinge from when I dyed over the bleach! Haha I knowwww, introductions are hard and embarrassing. I had to do one again today :( blaahh.

  13. Haha, a sock army sounds great to me. Your outfit is adorable :] I hated "getting to know you" exercises when I was in school. I just nervously sat in the corner until someone addressed me, not really my cup of tea.

  16. You can never write too much about socks, I love em too & they are very addicting because there is so many different ones.

    Loving the polka dot skirt and that ring is awesome, can't believe it's from Diva will have to check it out.

    I personally love the nerdy/student look! xx

    1. I bought it a while ago, but when I bought it they had this huge display of pretty bird-related things! Very unlike Diva to have cute things haha.

  17. You look so so adorable & love this hairstyle you did too. What a long break- that sounds amazing! Get-to-know-yas def can be painful but just think how cool it would be to find out you have something in common w/ a future friend you never would have talked to : )

    1. I knooow, it's so awkward. Surely that's the kind of thing that would (hopefully) happen naturally anyway!

    Love, Vanilla

  23. I love the outfit. Very collegiate. I get all nervous with introductions too. I can't even talk to guys in real life, so I got on eharmony. lol Maybe that will work.

  24. Oh God, those 'icebreaker' activities are always nothing short of horrendous! Can totally relate to the mad arm flailing, whenever I meet new people I always end up convincing them I'm mental within the first five minutes. That outfit is suhweet, especially the ankle socks and backpack - coolest. geek. EVAAARRRR. xx

    Good luck with the mini sock army xo
