watch what you feel, they'll say it's not real

So it's kind of funny that I say "Oh yes, I'm loving the flowy layers and neutrel colours for spring" and then I show up wearing a motorcycle jacket and Mickey Mouse sweater. Though I guess because it's still that awkward phase between winter and spring, it shouldn't really count, now should it?
The jacket is from H&M's $15 off all jackets & blazers sale. I'd been wanting a motorcycle jacket for a very, very, very long time so this seemed like a perfect excuse to get one. Of course it's almost summer and a jacket won't be needed. I love when I buy clothing out of season.


However, these shoes are coompletely in season!! I bought these saddle shoes at Payless last weekend for $10 (with a coupon). They're a size 2.5 kids, I think the shoes run a bit big there...? Saddle shoes are awesome. I used to wear them when I was just a little kid. That being said, I also wore Doc Martens, jelly sandals (with socks, duh), and clogs. Obviously I was a very fashionable little kid.


The red hoodie is the only thing that I own from American Apparel. I got it for $0.67 at the second hand store. I think there's this whole idea that hoodies aren't "fashionable" or whatever, but even if they aren't, they're still "stylish" and great for layering. It's still a bit too cold out for the jacket, so throwing a hoodie on underneath makes it appropriate for bus stop lingering and class-to-class campus scurrying. Plus it adds a nice dose of colour. Black & red together are lovely. Always.


I don't have another day off until Easter, and even after Easter I don't have a day off. Paychecks will be huge, but I'll be worn thin. Anyways, got to go do some writing class work before leaving for work!

Sweet outfit! I love the casual look, as it's totally something I would wear. Looks absolutely comfy.

Also, hooray for hoodies! Can't live without mine; I throw it on over almost every outfit as I'm walking out the door.

I wear a hoody pretty much every single day. Probably the only exception is laundry day (that makes me sound a bit gross, doesn't it?) It's big and baggy and very unflattering but I don't feel comfortable not wearing it. Plus I don't DO umbrellas, so I have to have a hood on. Anyway, your hoody and jacket combo looks great :)

Wasn't that sale at H&M so awesome? I love your motorcycle jacket, it's so cool, and those saddle shoes are amazing! I've been looking for a pair for the longest time! I'll have to check out Payless soon!

those shes are so cool! 2.5 kids? thats crazy! Your feet must be miniscule. I really like this look. It's one of those things so comepletely unlike my own style ( I don't even OWN a hoodie) but is still awesome. What i like about your blog is how your personal style is kind of urba and grungy but you provide such a wide array of intrests,from black and white musicals to 1920 flappers.
