Olive It

Aug 7, 2013

Do you understand the title of the post? Olive it... "I love it". Yes? No? I'm so punny. I tried to be creative so I hope it worked. Great, now the song I Love It by Icona Pop is in my head. I think I'm starting to go off on a tangent here. Tangent, tan, blog name... okay I'll stop.

Wow, I'm wearing a necklace! This is a rare sighting of Joyce with jewelry, just saying. This olive skirt has been sitting in my closet for the past few years, probably only getting worn twice at maximum. Finally, it got its glory day today. The tee is actually from my sister's closet but no one said we couldn't share! In fact, she doesn't know I took it until now if she's reading this post... hi sis :D

Do you ever have those outfits where it looks okay for awhile, and then the next minute you doubt the pairing of clothing? I had that feeling with this outfit... and somewhat still do. But I like that it's different from what I normally wear. It doesn't really look like a summer outfit but it suits the weather that I've been experiencing here! Please excuse the crinkles in my skirt.

I've been so tired these past days. For the next two weeks, I'll be studying my bum off for my finals. I only have two, but that's two more than none! I'll have less than a week off until I have a research class/course I signed up for, and that will take a week. It's a chance to work first-hand with a professor (and 23 other students) so I'm pretty excited! Once that week is done, I get a few days off and school starts again for me! Student life.

I love exaggerating my poses. It's fun :)
