The perfect storm

The title is a double entendre...not only do I have oodles of work to do, but it is also supposed to storm. On the plus side, my friends and I are going to a bar tonight that is holding a special for unlimited beer and pizza for $5. So tomorrow, I'll have to wear a camping tent.

the perfect storm

Headband: Charlotte Russe
Red 70s earrings: from my aunt
Blue scarf: from my grandma
Yellow 70s sweater: rummage sale
Black courdoroy jumper: thrifted
Red knit skirt: thrifted
Blue tights: Target

I will not forget my umbrella this time...

EDIT FROM CAMPUS: Crap. I forgot my umbrella.

I'm liking the primary color scheme. And your hair with the headband looks tres chic, reminds me of a sixties socialite!

Lurve your outfit (as always ;) and the primary colors are so pop-y and happy! Perfect for a rigorous Tuesday.

Not many can pull of the color scheme you've got going on, but you did it well. Good job :)

Happy Earth Day! I love this outfit, but am not daring enough to wear it with the red skirt - I'd opt for black...boring me...perfect you!

I wish I thrifted more so I could have somehow thrifted that jumper before you did. Because I want it.

Good luck with your work!

Thankfully it didn't rain yesterday (or did it? I was indoors from 11am-10pm, boo).

I love your fearless matching of colours, never would have thought to pair bright primaries with black. Well done. :)
