Closet Diary 2.21.12

I bought this dress before I left for school as one of my very few purchases for fall. I like to think I’ve become a pretty efficient shopper, mostly because of this blog. I’ve learned what I like, what looks good on me, what goes with my closet, and rarely buy something I regret.

This dress is an exception. I bought it because I liked the shape of it, the pattern, and the color. I didn’t have anything else like it, but I thought it would go with a lot. I was wrong. I have had the hardest time styling this dress! It is such a peculiar color and doesn’t seem to go with anything! Although I wasn’t sure about it at first, I do think I like the way the dress looks paired with these neutral colors. I’m really going to have to get creative to keep remixing this one though!

Although I’ve been stressing out about midterms and everything else I have going on this week, I was able to get a bit of a break by spending some time exploring school buildings I had never been in and the passageways between them that I didn’t even know existed with a friend. The best part was stumbling upon a random exhibit set up in the art school that I’m definitely dragging my boyfriend back to this weekend to hopefully get some pictures. I had never been in there before but now I’m dying to take an art class!
