When I wrote about my love of varsity sweaters, gorgeous blogger Leesh commented, "I have seen these varsity jackets all around, but I am unsure of how to incorporate it into my wardrobe and still look girly." As soon as I read that, I interpreted her comment as a challenge of sorts and decided that the debut outfit post featuring my Madewell letterman sweater-jacket should be as feminine as possible. The sweater's sportiness is the perfect counterpoint to the JACOB sleeveless blouse's dainty bows and pintucks and the pencil skirt's watercolour floral print. With sleek ankle boots and a vintage navy leather bag, the overall effect is girly without being overly twee.
I don't know whether it's because I'm busier in all aspects of my life or whether I'm simply worn out, but for the past week I've felt as though everything is moving in slow motion, and I get tired much more easily. I actually requested a blood test from my doctor earlier this week to rule out any iron deficiencies or thyroid problems, and ended up almost passing out at the medical lab. (Lesson learnt: Don't skip lunch right before blood work.) On top of this, I keep losing track of emails I mean to reply to. So if you've sent me something and it takes a couple days for me to get back to you, please bear with me as I'm trying to take care of myself and my health first.
Have a good weekend!
