SPRING break!

So today is the first official day of my spring break...and it actually feels like spring! I did a little shopping over the weekend and bought this chambray dress, which I'm wearing as a shirt here. I almost bought a chambray shirt instead...but I figured I could wear this as a shirt and dress which is pretty darn awesome. I've already thought of lots of outfits I can pair it with worn as a shirt. It is perhaps the most multi-functional thing I own. Since it's spring break campus is pretty much abandoned so I ventured out of my usual photo taking location today.

Welp, I'm off to hem and alter all the goodies I picked up at the thrift store today!

P.S. Here's what the shirt looks like as a dress. You'll probably see me wearing it this way soon.

P.P.S. It's really hard for me to keep growing my hair out when Carey Mulligan's looks so darn cute. (And she deserved that Oscar, dammit.)

My Spring Break is just around the corner. I reeeeally love how you have both the floral shirt and the over-shirt tucked into the skirt. Excellent tights, too!

I never really desired chambray before, but you make it look so breezy and stylish. I love how it paired it with dark florals and those killer tights!

And luckyyyy... my spring break isn't until next week. D:

Love those tights! and this blog.
Weardrobe is the best place to find other fashion bloggers!
(my advice is always chop the hair off, haha, but I don't want to encourage you if you want it longer!)
